We recently met with Dr Shasha and from the moment he walked into the room we knew we were in good hands with him and he was the one to treat my father! He listened to all our questions and explained all the options and what he felt was the best way to treat my fathers prostate cancer! He also directed us to other doctors my father needs to see and he got us into their offices by the next day! Can not recommend him enough! He is a rockstar!

Dr. Shasha treated me for prostate cancer in 2007, and I have been cancer-free every since. His depth and range of knowledge, willingness to fully explain every step of treatment, complete honesty about risks, and dedication and compassion inspire the kind of confidence and trust a patient needs to fight this battle. I feel incredibly lucky to have had him as my doctor.

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.

Treated 8 years ago for prostate cancer with seed implant and external radiation. No problems or side effects from this treatment. Dr. Shasha made this difficult chapter as easy as one could hope for, with his skill and basic decency. A great doc and even better human being.

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer on March 2014 and my urologist recommend that i see Dr Shasha, it was the best decision i have ever made. After a careful review of my medical record and series of exams, he recommended the seeds implant treatment. Today I am cancer free andI owe to Dr Shasha. He is an excellent healthcare professional, kind and very knowledgeable of his specialty, and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend Dr. Shasha to anyone looking an oncologist for cancer treatment
