    My father was a patient of Dr. Shasha in 2012. When my Dad had another type of illness, Dr. Shasha had recommended one of his collegues. So we went to visit both doctors and Dr. Shasha assured us that while the other doctor was on vacation for 3 weeks, he would look in on my Dad -being he was right there. My Dad loved and trust Dr. Shasha so it's shocking that Dr. Shasha never looked in on my Dad, never returned my Mom's phone calls. Disgraceful comes to mind.

    Dr.Shasha is an excellent doctor. After meeting with him in February 2008,i gained his confidence right away.He was very clear and direct with his patients. As an Afro-American 70-years of age,my P.S.A. on the Gleason scale was 10.49.Dr. Shasha' expertise has bought that down to a 0.02 in the year of 2013 and now I'm a cancer free patient for the past three years. I do highly recommend him for your treatment. I just have one more comment on Dr.Shasha,that's I wish he was my PCP.

    I have been under Dr. Shasha's care for treatment of prostrate cancer for five years. Although I cannot speak to any doctor's technical capability, I can address the results. My treatment was successful. I found Dr. Shasha to be professional, courteous, and thoughtful throughout as he monitored my condition every six months for those five years. He was clear in his explanations and helpful about other health issues, always inquiring if I had the proper inoculations.

    From first contact, Dr. Shasha inspired reassurance and confidence...caring in attitude, direct in approach, absolutely clear in analysis, and comprehensive in explanations. In two details related to preparation for the seed implantation procedure, he went--professionally and personally-- beyond what seemed to be indicated to ensure success, beyond what I would already consider the gold standard.

    Dr. Shasha provides warm, compassionate care, paying attention to detail and to his patient?s overall well-being as well as to his specialization of radiation oncology. He is backed up by a well- organized support team that helps to provide efficient and re-assuring delivery of treatment. The treatment I received for prostate cancer was highly effective. I would recommend Dr. Shasha without reservation to any patient seeking treatment.

    Was treated with radiation and seed implants for prostate cancer 10 years ago. My PSA is below 1. Had no complications. Retained all functions with no medication. Top of his field.
