Dr Shea has been the only Dr that found and fixed a problem my son had 22 years ago . We had taken my son to several other specialists and all they could tell us is yes there is something wrong but we don't know what it is. I still use Dr Shea . He is thorough in what he does . I trust his knowledge when it comes to care of the ears. He explains the problem so someone that does not have medical knowledge can understand what is happening .
