Avoid this doctor! I went to Dr. Shemen with test results showing a parotid glad tumor. He checked the test results, examined me and said the was absolutely no tumor and sometimes the test results were wrong. I asked about further testing and he told me that was not necessary and not to worry there was no tumor. I went to another doctor, had additional testing and found out I had two tumors malignant in the parotid gland and I will need surgery. Stay away from Dr. Sheman.
This man is absolute worst doctor i have ever encountered in my life. I went to his office because 2 nodules were found on my thyroid. This chop shop doctor wanted to schedule me for surgery ASAP. Also told me i have Hashimoto's disease and would not be able to have children. The visit to his office was traumatizing to say the least. He is rude and unprofessional. After getting a second opinion, not only did i not need surgery but i didn't need to be on medications either. This man is a nightmare.
Dr. Shemen came highly recommended to me by my endocrinologist. After struggling with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (hypothyroidism & enlarged thyroid) for nearly 20 years, it was time for me to have my thyroid removed. Dr. Shemen did an evaluation, and quickly confirmed my thyroid needed to come out. My research revealed he is one of the top surgeons for this procedure in the area, and after meeting him and interacting with him, he gave me the confidence I needed to go forward with the surgery. He is a kind, efficient, knowledgable and professional doctor who runs a tight ship. His office is clean and his employees are helpful and kind. Big props to Jeff, who helped me schedule my surgery and was phenomenal at getting everything ready and checking in with me. The morning of the surgery, Dr. Shemen was there to answer all my questions and even joked with me in the OR. He kept my fiance up to date after the procedure, and was available right away when I called at off times during the week for a prescription refill. Finally, he was there to greet my fiance and I on my follow up appointment a week later. He clearly remembered everything about the surgery, and was happy to go through it with me...now that I was awake! I've resisted doing this surgery for 20 years. Now that it is done, I can't recommend Dr. Shemen and his team highly enough.
