excellant, soft-spoken attentive surgeon

Posted on January 8th, 2009

Dr. Shelman is a wonderful doctor to work with. He listens patiently and gives detailed answers. He operated on both me and my mother and was excellent at giving feedback to waiting family. He is refreshingly removed from the stereotypic model the egotistical surgeon. His office staff and his hospitals operating room personnel are very friendly and attentive. Dr. Shelman received high praise from his fellow physicians when I was looking for a surgeon. The only problem is that he is hugely busy (as would be expected) but he never appears to be rushed.
