The absolute best. How fortunate I was to have Dr Shrake as my Radiation Oncologist. Cancer is scary enough without having a medical professional to help guide & coach you through it. It's something that I'd never experienced before & I didn't know what I didn't know. Dr Shrake (and his excellent staff) anticipated questions / conditions / situations and were there to help me through it all. As questions & concerns came up, Dr Shrake took the time to provide answers and offer his council. The man is very good at what he does.

I have been a patient since 2011. Both the level of treatment and the concern for patient welfare have been excellent. I will continue to use Dr. Shrake should I need further radiation treatment.

Dr. Shrake is a very professional doctor that provided excellent service to my prostate condition. He cured my cancer with the seed implants. Outstanding follow-up and showed immense compassion towards my condition. I would recommend him to anyone that has a prostate issue and/or cancer. He will do his best to cure it.

After receiving a diagnosis of Prostate cancer, I feel very fortunate to have been treated by Dr. Shrake and his staff. They understood how I felt, anticipated many of my questions, encouraged me to ask any additional questions and treated me like I was one of their family members. Within a very short time, I felt complete confidence in the treatment I was receiving and the staff administering that treatment. Dr. Shrake was recommended to me by a friend, in turn I also recommend him!

I have had to see Dr Shrake for radiation on 2 seperate occasions. I was extremely pleased with the results on both occasions! My pain was completely gone after 5 sessions of the total 10 sessions that were needed. I pray that I do not have to see Dr Shrake again, but if I do, I know I'll be in good hands and the technicians are AMAZING as well!!

Dr. Shrake and his staff provided me with compassionate care, his rapport with patients made me feel comfortable and I held a sense that he was caring and very knowledgeable about my cancer. Dr. Shrake took time to explain process and procedure that was unrushed. His staff made me feel like family. I just think the experience given the diagnosis could not have been better. Always greeted by name as I entered the office and many times greeted by the Tech.s that were waiting for me!

Dr.Shrake was recommended to me when I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. From the initial visit, I was made to feel completely at ease and knew I was in good hands. Dr.Shrake talked to me like I was a friend and explained everything in layman's terms. After the seed were implanted, next came the 7 weeks of radiation treatment. During that time, his staff greeted you everyday with a smile. They treated me with compassion and dignity. Cant say enough about Dr.Shrake and his staff!!!!

My experience with Dr. Shrake and all his staff has been an excellent one with a good outcome. After being diagnosed with prostate cancer, I chose to have the seed treatment, which is a painless, outpatient treatment, with minimal effects. I was then provided with several radiation treatments with a kind and caring staff of nurses. It was indeed a painless experience. After three and one half years, I am totally cancer free. I would recommend Dr. Shrake and his staff, above all others.
