Dr. Shrake, the nursing staff, technicians, and front desk staff were exceptional. I was very impressed with the professionalism. The technicians were a pleasure to work with every day of my prostate cancer treatments. They answered my questions with enthusiasm. Everything went as discussed before treatments.

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.
