From the moment I walked in Dr. Shoukas' office for a consultation, I sensed his sincerity, professionalism, compassion, and patience for people. I knew I wanted him to be my surgeon. He answered all my questions and made me feel at ease throughout the process. I can see why he was nominated as one of the top surgeons. He is a Great doctor!! I would recommend him to anyone!!!! His staff is also a compliment to him! They are a great group of people!
Upon walking into the office with three gashes in my sons chin from a fall on a tree stump, Dr. Shoukas got my son in immediately. He took the time to make sure the wound was properly cleaned and put in stitches immediately. My son is concerned about the scars on his face but the doctor immediately assured him that all would be fine. He is professional, considerate and has impeccable bedside manners with teenagers.
Dr. Shoukas is such a compassionate person! I went into his office at 16 and he explained that I was too young to have this major surgery (breast reduction). I was getting emotional as I was talking about the physical problems and confidence issues that large breasts caused me. He sat with me for over an hour just consoling and encouraging me until I promised him that I wouldn't cry when I left his office. He told me that if I was his own daughter, he would have me wait until I was at least 18 to do the BR; it would be safer and I would be done growing by then. He even offered to let me come in at 17 and he would take measurements again. (He was heartbroken that I was upset). Two years later, at 18 years old, I returned to Dr. Shoukas' office to follow through with the surgery. I just got the BR done two weeks ago. I could not be more happy with the results! His work is perfect. The office staff is friendly and the wait time is no more than five minutes...and Dr. Shoukas will blow you away; he's so down to earth! He takes the time to explain everything to you and answer every question. He really has treated me like his own daughter from the first day I went into his office at 16, to post-op appointments at 18. Dr. Shoukas has a great sense of humor, a calming demeanor, and a very personable heart. He genuinely cares about you as a person. I could go on and on about what a wonderful doctor he is!
I had implants put in over 15 years ago, over the years I have developed bad capsular contracture, which made them rock hard & look abnormal. I came to see Dr. Shoukas and he spent time going over several options that I had to relieve the problem. I opted to have the old implants taken out and new silicone ones put back in . My whole experience has been great & my breasts look normal again. Thank you Dr. Shoukas !
