Very efficient and professional team. Short waiting times, staff is good at answering questions, or at least finding someone who can answer them. Dr has pleasant demeanor and was thorough in his exam. Very satisfied with the entire experience. Will definitely recommend this practice to family, friends and other patients.

I have had quite a lot of basal cell skin cancers some of which I have needed MOHs surgery to remove them. Some have been on my face. Dr Shahan has been able to remove them and there is very little visible scarring from the surgeries. He is very personable and I have 100% confidence in him.
