Have you seen Dr. John Shimkus?
October 15th, 2015Do not go to him
This doctor in one session took x rays, asked for a CT scan, and offered a cortisone shot on the spot. When the results came I had residual thymus tissue and he compared it to a woman who had cancer in her chest then ended with "if it makes you feel any better I'm always wrong about these things" . I went to my primary and two other surgeons at NYU cause I was super horrified and they all told me I had nothing to worry about and this was not something alarming, I did not have cancer or tumors or a mass or anything. He stinks and is super rude!

Dr. shimkus is very rude, unprofessinoal !!! Doesn't review his notes prior to entering the room, Didn't care what we had to say, told us if we didn't like it to go elsewhere!!! Nice response from a doctor!!! Worse ... we waited for over 2 hours to get a doctor who truly doesn't care about his patients. Again, horrible! Wouldn't recommend him or his staff to anyone!!

Actually said "that's life" when I was talking to him about my medical issues. Acted annoyed that I wanted an MRI of my back to make sure of diagnosis. Seemed bothered in general and not very friendly. Took personal phone call while I was sitting there. Diagnosed me correctly but I would never go back. Not caring or concerned enough for me. Office is awful as it's a medical office also and it's packed with sick people. Nightmare.
