She strives to build positive relationships with her patients throughout their care, while teaching her patients about their individual health.

Dr. Schenkel plans on practicing the full scope of family medicine in Strausstown, by seeing all ages of patients from newborns through geriatrics, while taking a special interest in women's health.
