After seeing 4 doctors prior , I finally found a doctor that cared and can explain what is happening to me ! Dr Shanis did not brush off my concerns like the other doctors..hair loss, weight gain, stress, sleeplessness . She knew what test to order , questions to ask and more importantly she explained what can be done and what can help. She is friendly, pleasure to talk with and makes you comfortable enough to trust in her medical knowledge. She is awesome so happy I found her!

after 4 years of not feeling right and not having any doctor listen dr. shanis took the time to look at evertthing and properly diagnose me. she is greT!!!!
Avoid this doctor

While the wait was short, I, like many of the others, felt she was only interested in the insurance. She put me on Rezulin, which was found to cause liver damage. While I DID need to lose weight, she also put me on Alli. I'm surprised I'm still as fairly healthy as I am. I went to another doctor who took me off her medications and put me on the tried and true meds. I feel much better and feel much more controlled with my current doctor. I feel that Dr. Shanis used me as a guinea pig and my health would have been compromised as a result.

DO NOT USE OR REFER TO THIS PHYSICIAN!

She is unprofessional, her office is completely outdated in terms of technology and staffing, she lacks the skills and medical knowledge to diagnose and treat endocrinology diagnoses properly. She's most concerned about money; provides no back up physician to see patients while away on long (2-3 wk) vacations. Overall, one of the worst physicians I've had the unfortunate opportunity to deal with in the profession. Find another endocrinologist in the area!

horrible endo doctor

As someone already noted, Dr Shanis is only interested in getting your insurance money. She does not use a computer, hands you a receipt written on a prescription pad and eager to make the next appointment. She has no office staff and does not listen to your concerns. Save your time and money.
