Finding out you have cancer is scary. Dr. Shenk put me immediately at ease with his calm approach, dry wit and knowledge. He presented all the facts to my husband and I so that we can make an informed decision on how to proceed. Every time we brought up something he would address it in a way that was easy for us to understand. I highly recommend Dr. Shenk to anyone looking for an oncology surgeon.

Dr. Shenk was very unprofessional in his attitude towards me. He was curt and came across as though my presence was a waste of his time. Regardless of what the future holds for me, Dr. Shenk will not be my doctor of choice.

Expert in his field

Dr. Shenk was able to save my breast with a very complicated lumpectomy instead of a mastectomy. He did some minor reconstruction with an eye to cosmetics. My breast has very little deformity and looks natural after removing 3 masses. I went to him out of network and paid the difference with my insurance just for his amazing expertise. I chose him as the second opinion and am so glad that I did after the first doctor told me she was "a big fan" of mastectomy with reconstructive surgery before she even did the biopsy!
