He is incredibly caring and an amazing practitioner!!!

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.
