Dr Shenassa is the most talented and kind hand surgeon ever! He has operated on my husband and continually takes care of my son who plays baseball. We are very fortunate to have Dr. Shenassa!

After 6 weeks of being casted for a broken schaphoid there was no sign of healing. We were then referred to Dr. Shenassa. Dr. Shenassa evaluated the injury and decided surgery was his best option. The surgery was a success and he was back to playing baseball sooner than we expected. Dr. Shenassa was extremely thorough and made sure my son was 100% healed before releasing him back to sports. Additionally, his bed side manner is extraordinary!

I am very very fortunate to have come across Dr. Shenassa and his office. I had an accident occur that resulted in emergency surgery to my right index finger. Dr. Shenassa saw me immediately the same day of the accident and performed the surgery that night. He continually made me feel comfortable I would make a full recovery and was available any time I need him. He is one of the best doctors I've met and any even better person with his constant professionalism and his sincere care.

One of the Top Doctors in the area. My care was excellent from the initial visit to discharged after surgery. Even called me at home to see how I was doing.
Dr. Shenassa is an execellent doctor and surgeon who took his time during my assessment, surgery and follow-up visits to explain what to expect and how to achieve the best outcome. After breaking my wrist which required surgery, I am so thankful to have had Dr. Shenassa as my physician. I would give him the highest recommendation for anyone needing his services.

I have been a patient of Dr. Shenassa for a few years now and I have had nothing but the best of experiences. I have a rare disorder in my wrist and he explained all of my options and made me feel comfortable during all of my visits. When it came time for surgery, I wouldn't consider anyone but Dr. Shenassa. If you're looking for a doctor with understanding, patience and knowledge, I would highly recommend Dr. Shenassa. His entire staff is friendly as well!
