Dr. Shirley helped diagnose an issue I have had for years, since childhood really. I'm now undergoing treatment and feel better than I have in a long, long time. If my friend hadn't suggested I see her, I never would have gone, but I'm very glad I did..highly recommended.

Sharp as a tack, patient, insightful, sympathetic, responsive, great professional-casual balance. No suggestions for improvement.

I have seen Dr. Shirley when she worked with Gateway. She was great. She was compassionate and thorough. She even spent time searching for coupons/savings for the medication I was taking because it was new and expensive and my insurance did not cover it.
