I was in a car accident on May 2, 2016 where I was rear ended at a traffic light. A family member referred me to Schackow & Mercadante, PA. From my experience I can say I was very pleased with the level of professionalism I received from Mr. Schackow and staff from the first visit. The staff was extremely polite and made me feel welcomed and confident in my decision on them handling my case. I was referred to a better Chiropractor that would benefit me and not just to receive my insurance money. Everything was handled properly and in a timely manner at which I was informed every step of the way throughout the process. Mr. Schackow and his staff took their time to explain, educate, and answer any questions I had which is incredible. They were able to get all my medical fees waived and lowered so I would receive a larger settlement. Any time I had questions Mr. Schackow's Legal Assistant, Michelle, made sure she was available and answered all my calls promptly, she was amazing. I highly recommend Schackow & Mercadante, PA for any automobile accident or personal injury case. The case was settled within a year and I received a settlement far beyond my expectations. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn?t do anything differently. Again excellent service and even better outcome so thanks again you all ROCK!
