Dr Shands is exceptional! A down to earth caring professional, no arrogance! He is very attentive to the needs of his patients! (I've witnessed this and have experienced this first hand.) He has treated me for kidney stones as well as family for other urolgy issues. As an RN of 20+ yrs Dr Shands is The Urologist I refer friends and family for professional, personalized care!

Takes the time necessary with you, more than most physicians I've been to and is just a great guy. He communicates very clearly and succinctly.

Dr. Shands takes the time to explain the options available for treatment of prostrate problems including the pros & cons of each. I have always found him to be patient and professional with every encounter I have had with him. I highly recommend him to others.

Dr. Shands like to talk, but does not like to listen. Easily becomes impatient. Does not listen to patient concerns. Sloppy, even inaccurate patient record keeping. Despite slowly rising post prostatectomy PSA, kept referring to it as "undetectable" until it was obvious that cancer had returned. Cancer return may have been avoided with post surgical radiation, per my oncologist. ...Too late now. Thanks, Dr. Shands!

I went to Dr. Shands for a vasectomy and found him to be very calming in regards to this procedure. He talked about what to expect, how any pain management would be handled, and the post procedure steps. During, he explained what was going to happen, how it might feel, and that everything was going well. After he was done, he ran through what the next several days might be like, warning me about possible pain. There really was no pain or recovery to speak of. I would highly recommend him!!!
