This past March marked the 6th time over the last decade that I'd received radiation treatment from Dr. Shrake. As has been my experience each time, the level of care provided was exceptional. A concise treatment plan was devised quickly and implemented with great precision! I have great confidence in his ability to assess the situation accurately and formulate a plan based on his knowledge and experience. His entire staff is professional and do all they can to make you feel at ease.

I am a patient who already had radiation therapy 10 years ago and it made it difficult to do it again when my PSA climbed to 12.4 recently. I saw Dr Shrake and he designed a series of treatments to avoid my old areas of treatment but would attack the current areas of concern based on my pet scan. After treatment my PSA dropped to less than .1. I am extremely appreciative to Dr Shrake and his team for the excellent medical treatment they provided, and would highly recommend them to anyone who is in need of radiation treatments. This team went the extra mile!

I took my 89 yr old Dad to Dr Shrake, recently, for consultation for possible radiation treatments on his ear for soft tissue sarcoma cancer he has. He just had MOHS surgery. Dr Shrake did an amazing job of talking with my Dad about the reality of his cancer. He's very straight forward but compassionate & caring, as well. He took his time & explained all well & put my Dad at ease about having radiation treatments. I feel totally comfortable & at peace witht this doctor & I belive my Dad does as well. I would recommend him for anyone needing radiation treatments.

I took a friend over there for Radiation after tensile cancer removal. The Doctor is good in radiation, no doubt, but attitude is bad. Follow-up visit no help to the patient. All his explanation for the symptom are side effect of chemo & radiation. The medicine he prescribed does not help the patient to relief the pain or improve the symptom. Everything is side effect & it take one or 2 year to slowly heal-up, in which who know. I finally have to bring the patient to different specialist like infectious disease, dentist & oral surgent to help to relieve the paint. This doctor may fail in patient phycology in medical school. He does not know how to talk to the patient in a better way to calm the patient's fear of all after radiation side effect. There are lot of place this doctor can improve on.

I had a series of 3 once a week Brachytherapy Radiation treatments. Dr Shrake and his Nurse, Natalie gave me a detailed explanation of how the procedure was done. Natalie, my nurse, was with me during the entire visit each time making sure I was comfortable, didn't need anything and not left waiting alone in a room on an exam table. I have never had a more compassionate, attentive Medical team for a procedure.

Dr Philip Shrake is an excellent doctor with a good bedside manner and a great support team making a visit to his office a very pleasant experience. I would recommend Dr Shrake to anyone who has prostrate cancer because he explains everything clearly and is not pushy but makes recomendations only based on the individuals.
