Dr. Tim Showalter is engaging, did his homework beforehand on my diagnosis, took his time with us to explain a rather complicated situation, showed what we believe to be a sincere interest in our well being as the foremost priority and referred us to another specialist for an additional opinion before jumping into treatment that could have some unfavorable risk factors. He spoke directly to us as a peer, as though we were all discovering this information together.We would definitely recommend Dr. Showalter and consider our visit with him a true encouragement in our journey through this health crisis.
Fabulous doctor, very caring and always available if you have any problems or questions. If you have a question he can't answer personally, he will research it and get back to you with an answer. I am a type 1 diabetic and my blood sugar would drop dangerously low with radiation. My endocrinologist said that radiation and blood sugar had no relation. Well, Dr. Showalter asked around and found out that there is a correlation. He's the best.
