Patient Comments (3)
Cleveland, TN |
Dr. Shander is caring, very considerate, professional, and trustworthy. Not to mention, extremely intelligent. He certainly takes his time with his patients exploring options without overlooking or under telling them pieces of information. I would definitely advocate and recommend him to others.
Soddy Daisy, TN |
Although he is an expert in pacers and ablation, he has no interest in the patient. When asked if extreme fatigue, dizziness, blood pressure dropping, and incidents of pulse of 122 were due to pacemaker failing, he had no idea of what I was talking about. His response was a blank look and no answer. My husband has been a patient of his for 12 years, these events had been discussed with Dr. Shander's assistant. Apparently the doctor doesn't care enough to read his patient's chart
Chattanooga, TN |
inserted replacement ICD. Stated lead placements were fine. Stated it is Institute policy to not issue new monitors until approx. 30 days post-op. The “old” monitor did not read the new ICD. Went 30 days without monitoring. Really doubt accepted standards of care were followed. Subsequent evaluation by another EP physician revealed one lead not in correct position. LONG wait times for 10 - 15 minute office visit.
