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...more
