March 3rd I was taken into emergency @ Northwell Plainview hospital with a high fever, inability to breathe and was diagnosed and treated by Dr. Shalshin who admitted to the hospital! He was accurate with the diagnosis and aggressively treated my pneumonia! I was good to go home within a week! I feel he took a special interest in my pneumonia and listened intently to my concerns calming my fears! Thank you, Dr. Shalshin

Dr. Aleksander Shalshin saved my life. He rushed into Syossett Hospital at 2:30 am to inject me with Heparin, after suffering a Pulmonary Embolism while aboard my boat in West Harbor (Oyster Bay). US Coast Guard rescued me, patched in a Emergency Technician to diagnose the P.E. while underway to dock, and alerted hospital of incoming patient. If hospital had listened to Ambulance diagnosis - they would have expected a heart attack victim... and I would not have had a critical care specialist to properly diagnose and treat the pulmonary embolism. In short - I would be dead without Dr. Shalshin.
