Dr. Shawchuck impressed me tremendously. She was kind, warm, and patient. She took all the time that was needed to make sure I understood what was going on and to make sure my questions were thoroughly answered. She seemed not just highly competent, but genuinely compassionate. While the wait time occasionally went a little long, I just remembered that someone else was getting the kind of care they deserved during a difficult time, and I didn't really mind.

Dr Shawchuck is very personable, and professional. She informed me of my options and let me decide how to proceed with treating my breast cancer. I would highly recommend Dr Shawchuck to anyone that is seeking surgery for breast cancer. Today, I sit here cured of breast cancer.

No one likes to be in a breast specialist's office so when you can find friendly faces and a comfortable atmosphere it's welcomed. Then, to find a doctor that makes you feel you're in good hands, figuratively and literally, it's a blessing. I recommend Dr. Shawchuck and am delighted I found her and her staff!
