in Stafford, VA |
Dr. Shonka is outstanding. He completed my parotid gland and tumor removal. He was detailed in his explaining of the procedure and he took the time to ensure all of my concerns were addressed. You get the feeling from him as if you are talking to your best friend. He truly cares about you and for you. My experience with him could not have been any better and I am grateful that I made the two hour trips for the care he provided me.
