This doctor is fantastic. I wish she could be my Primary Care Physician, except I know that would be taking her away from all of the patients in her specialty who REALLY need her care. If you have any hesitation whatsoever about using Dr. Shawchuck, please contact me. I have NO hesitation recommending her practice.

Dr. Shawchuck has the demeanor of an angel. She is patient, listens well, takes her time with you so that you never feel rushed in her presence. On top of that, she is an excellent doctor who is patient oriented and reflects that in her surgical arena. She uses pain blocking for mastectomies making the recovery more manageable. She prays for you before surgery along with the team in the OR. I always felt safe and cared for in her presence.
