Dr. Shenkman provided me the absolute best preventative cardiac care knowing I am genetically predisposed to heart problems. She definitely knows her stuff and practices what she preaches. She does not shove her healthy living views upon you. I am so pleased with Dr. Shenkman.

With her spiked bright red heals that she wears into the exam room and her "Vegan MD" License Plate that she needs to photograph and share with the world via social media , it is clear that this doctor is more into herself than she is in helping her patients. This assessment became more apparent when she refused to listen and/or care about her patient's history and/or concerns. She makes quick judgements without listening to the facts and became defensive if her opinion is challenged, or if additional historical data is provided. I am a firm believer that my health is in my own hands; therefore, I need a doctor with whom I can trust and converse. I did not find this to be the case with Dr. Shenkman so I will definitely be seeking another opinion when it comes to my cardiovascular health.

Dr Shenkman has an amazing, personal manner and is very understandable. Not typical in with many doctors. My father is 85 years old and can require a certain amount of patience to cover some deep material and she does very it very well. We highly recommend her!
