in Longmeadow, MA |
The best doctor that I have seen. Made me feel extreamly calm and comfortable before my procedure. Gave all of the information that I needed and asked if I had any questions before and after the procedure. I would recommend Dr shaker to anyone who is going to have any procedure done.
