I'm a newish patient of Dr. Shellenberger. I really like him. He is quiet and kind. He's very knowledgeable. I've had three surgeries with another doctor. Dr. S tried everything not to do another. After several months he decided he needed to. After a few weeks I'm feeling better. He's very knowledgeable and told me about ongoing information of my condition and with that decided to stay away from a problem that could heal itself. Originally we thought he may have to work on it too.

Highly recommend Dr. Shellenberger and his staff. I recently went in with my 6yo and Dr. Shellenberger was great with him. He told my child what to expect and calmed his nerves. Great explanation of the problem and spoke very clearly on what we needed to do next. Great experience all the way around!

Dr. Shellenberger did not help me at all. I had a long wait (over 2 weeks) for an appointment and with 4 scheduled appointments, I saw Dr. S once. He cancelled one due to a "conflict", two times his PA saw me, and I saw him once. He was rushed, didn't listen well, and guessed at my diagnosis. Over $2,000 later, I'm no better with no recommendations from him. The office is very "cattle car" with his nurse giving me the wrong samples the Dr. S had instructed. Go somewhere else!

Had a simple cauterization procedure in left nostril. However he seemed rushed, and did not advise me of side affects to be expected afterwards. Went back to work afterwards and couldn't function because of excessive sneezing, runny nose. Had I known about this I would have schedule the procedure later in the day. Total time spent with me less than 4 minutes.

Our daughter is a performing artist and Dr. Luke understands the needs and challenges of vocalists. His kind nature and thorough understanding of the relationship of ENT issues to vocal performance was just what we were looking for. He is always efficient, yet doesn't make you feel rushed. He considers conservative measures first, but has relationships with other specialists if needed. Dr. Luke is honest, enthusiastic, and knowledgable.

Called for an appt since I have been having issues with fluid in my ears for about 3 weeks. I was told by the receptionist that it would be 6 week before I could get "that kind" of appt. What is "that kind"? If I call an ENT, I obviously have issues with one of those parts. Very disappointing, Apparently they are too busy to need another new patient.

Dr. Shellenberger is very thorough, was quick to get into for more emergent situations, explained things to us in a very thorough way, was on time and made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed. I had a son who had tubes put in and taken out by Dr. Shellenberger and I now have had tonsils and adenoids removed and sinus surgery as well and he exceeded expectations with all experiences. He's a kind person and and is nice to work with.
