wonderful doctor

I've had Dr. Shaker as my endocrinologist for most of the last 15 years. When he moved I had a very hard time finding a replacement. When he came back to Wis. I was very happy. He had been very accurate with diagnosis and care. He had never caused me difficulty with my medicine, like his replacements have. I would recommend him and his staff highly, and I have.
