What People Say About Dr. Karen Shainsky, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I rarely leave comments about Doctors, as my indifference towards them rightfully matches their indifference towards patient's wellness, and their excessive concerns about insurance reimbursements, but what I have witnessed today deserves a special comment. I took my mother to see Dr. Shainsky, and what I saw was shocking and unusual in a very good way. Dr. Shainsky showed genuine concern, spent significant amount of time on examine my mother, spent time on learning about her medical history going back years, as well looking at details at recent tests. Without a doubt she tried to help beyond just her specialization in Rheumatology, as Doctors would do in the "good old times". I wish more Doctors showed as much concern about their patient's health, but that is probably going to remain in realm of wishful thinking, with rare exceptions like Dr. Shainsky. GREAT THANKS!!!

Doctor Shainsky is a very knowledgeable, caring and sincere person. Doctor Shainsky alarmed us about our 90 year old mother having a serious eye condition.She called in on other specialists for our Mother, even though, she was out of town on a conference. Thank you doctor for being the way you are. Steven Olshansky
