I went to see him about hair loss recently. I simply asked him about getting a wig prothesis in the future. He immediately brushed it off and said no and began to tell me I have too much anxiety about losing my hair. He then said that I should see this doctor that he knows would be great for me to see. It just so happens that it's also his brother. If that isn't nepotism I don't know what is. Don't see this man. He is only out to get your money for him and his family.

Dr Shehan is extremely knowledgeable and thorough during the examination for skin check. I have complete faith in his ability to detect and treat any skin cancer; as I have seen firsthand how he saw skin cancer on my husband that I couldn't see with my eyes. He treated my husband and...no more skin cancer! Dr Shehan always take the time to listen and explain any skin related issues we my have that need to be addressed. Now my children and their spouses also see Dr Shehan any time they have any skin concerns. We are all extremely pleased with the service that Dr Shehan and his staff provide. I will continue to recommend him to anyone I know that needs the service of a dermatologist.

Dr Shehan is always very informative and interested in listening to my concerns. He prescribed a treatment for a wart, and the treatment worked so well. I had it treated by a podiatrist with no success. Very pleased with my result from Dr Shehan. Thanks
