This Dr. is Awesome !

Dr. Shanks has a wonderful bed-side manner, who also listened to my signs and symptoms. Then he took X-rays to confirm; as well as showing me, what he found. After requesting an MRI, he could then point out problem areas. I appreciate his professional diagnosis. This doctor cares about his patients. That matters alot to me. Thank-you Dr.Shanks.
