    in Forest Park, IL |
    I'm not certain that I could accurately explain how much he has improved my life, but I'm ever so grateful for his expertise, kindness, and dedication. I'm recovering from a hysterectomy, performed by Dr. Shashoua. I had a complicated fibroid in a terrible location, and I exhausted all other advice regarding treatment. While I was resistant to have hysterectomy, it proved to be the right thing. I feel amazing and I'm surprised by how little pain I was in. Excellent, expert care. Thank you!
