Feeling very fortunate

Dr. Shahan and his crew, fantastic. Special kudos to Monica: besides being extremely helpful, great sense of humor. Greatly satisfied with Dr. Shahan's promptness from the initial appointment through the complete procedure's success, I couldn't be more grateful. With the follow-up coming in 2 weeks, I look forward to seeing Dr. Shahan and staff again, and feel confident in its conclusion. My wife and I will continue to see Dr. Shahan for our dermatology needs I hope for years to come.

This man saved my life! I have been seeing Dr. Shahan for over four years for routine skin examinations. Recently his skilled eyes detected some skin discolorations that I considered normal, but he deemed suspicious. He removed samples for biopsy, which confirmed his suspicion of melanoma. That is serious! He performed skin excisions that resulted in the successful removal of the lesions. Thank you to Dr. Shahan and his highly professional staff.
