He was extremely proficient in giving me the best option for what I am experiencing. Not only did he offer many solutions to my problem, but he worked with me and my mother to provide the best, affordable option.

I had to have a biopsy and have a fear of needles. Dr. Shavin made the visit painless, made me laugh and I got through without passing out. Awesome visit for a grown up cry baby.
