    Dr. Shrager performed an 8 hour surgery on my husband. His expertise & what he did in that operating room were amazing as was his compassion towards me & my family. Once my husband came home from the hospital, Dr. Shrager checked on him not only at office visits but through emails & even a weekend phone call. We are so grateful Dr. Shrager was recommended to us by our gastrointestinal doctor, & we would highly recommend him!

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

    Dr. Shrager's Care Philosophy

    Competence and compassion are the essential components of the care that I provide. For patients dealing with cancer, I coordinate a "multidisciplinary plan" combining state-of-the-art techniques from multiple specialists. In addition to my surgery, this may include gastroenterology procedures, radiation therapy, and hormone-based treatments. I am skilled at presenting these ideas to my patients in terms that they can understand.
