I saw 6 Rheumatologists before mtg DR. S! I saw one in 2001 who gave 5 years to live, said those were the cards I'd been dealt. I saw one in 2007 who was overwhelmed by my case & sent me to Dr. S where life changed for the better. Whatever adversity you face ILD, Scleroderma, Lupus, RA, You should trust Dr. S & his staff. Doc is Brilliant. I trust him as a rheumatologist & as a friend. His staff goes the extra mile with every patient & he puts his patients first! He gave me a better life!!

I love being seen under Dr Shanahan. Right now I pay out of pocket to see him because I don't want to change doctors. I don't have the money really to do this but his office works with me to help cut down cost on his visits. (For example- what blood work needs to be done before his visits).
I saw Dr. Shanahan for several years and felt great under his care. He is very smart and rigorous. I had some issues communicating with him through his staff, but this is fairly common. People drive several hours to see Dr. Shanahan, an he is worth it.

I have been with Dr. Shanahan since he opened his practice, and he is at the top of my favorite doctors list. He is compassionate and caring, and never rushes through an appointment, taking whatever time I need to discuss any issues or questions. He takes a partnership approach, engaging me in decisions around my care. I can't say enough about good about him.....he's truly top notch!

I've referred him already to two of my friends with immunological disorders. I KNOW that if I didn't find him when I did, I wouldn't be in the shape I am in today. I have had lupus for 12 yrs and RA for two; along with a plethora of other tag-a-longs (raynauds, sjogrens, etc).

I firmly believe that if I hadn't found Dr Shanahan 5 years ago, my health would be in a crisis state to this day. He is a compassionate provider, and is very thorough in his treatment and assessments. When I have had flare ups, his office staff has been receptive and helpful through the advice line. I have even known Shanahan to provide his cell number to patients with ongoing difficulties. I hope that I never have to move away from this area and this fabulous doctor.
