Excellent surgeon at a well run facility!
I am highly satisfied about my experience with Dr. Shadduck and EmergeOrtho! Six weeks ago Dr. Shadduck operated on me to repair a small hernia on the right side of my lower abdomen, called an inguinal hernia. About 15 years ago I had a similar hernia repair on the left lower abdomen (which was done at UNC) and therefore I have some comparative experience. Before choosing Dr. Shadduck I also saw another surgeon (at one of the big medical facilities) for an opinion. Below I’ll go through the numerous things that I liked about Dr. Shadduck and EmergOrtho: 1) Getting an appointment for an initial assessment was straightforward and easy. I really liked not having to navigate a big institutional medical organization (i.e. - UNC & Duke) when calling on the phone. 2) Going to this initial appointment with Dr. Shadduck was again much easier at the EmergeOrtho location than the huge parking decks at UNC/Duke. When I arrived on time, the receptionists were great . . very friend

I was very pleased with the visit. Dr Shadduck took enough time to explain the problem and why surgery was not appropriate. Always listen carefully to a surgeon who does not recommend surgery.

Dr. Shadduck took a conservative approach to my inguinal hernia. I went through a months-long "watchful waiting" period, until the growth in the hernia became too concerning for me. He agreed that surgery was indicated. He took the time to explain the procedure and alternatives very clearly. We also reviewed the likely recovery and rehab periods. The pre-op preparation was expert, the procedure was uncomplicated, and I am fine at my 2-week follow-up. Once again, Dr. Shadduck was clear about dos and don'ts as recovery progresses. I recommend him highly.

Dr. Shadduck gave me plenty of time to discuss my pending surgery. He was informative in ways a lay person could readily understand. Dr Shadduck asked me if I had questions, I did, and then he gave detailed answers. He included my husband in our discussion and asked him if he had any questions, he did, then Dr Shadduck addressed my husband's questions. Preparing for surgery can be an unsettling experience, but I'm comforted in knowing that Dr Shadduck will be the one doing my proceedure.

I was a nurse “back when” Dr. Shadduck was new on the scene. He’s always had a stellar reputation but had never seen him as a patient. I saw him for a consult and it was the most comprehensive review of my medical history ever done. No surgery for now~he’s referring me to another specialty for consultation and f/up. Very Pleased!

Excellent experience. Dr. Shadduck took a lot of time to explain everything up front, and my recovery has gone very well, now 3 months out. I knew I was in good hands when one of the pre-op nurses complimented me on my choice of surgeons!

Dr Shadduck spent a great deal of time going over my results and explained everything in a way that was understandable. He displayed great bedside matters. He did not appear to be in a hurry and for that I am thankful.

The best doctor I have ever encountered. From my first meeting with him to surgery, he made me feel very comfortable and at ease. Provided lots of info about my diagnosis to help me make the best decision for myself. I had gallbladder cholecystectomy and the surgery/recovery went amazing! Dr. Shadduck shows that he loves what he does and has a genuine care for his patients! I am grateful that I was referred to him.

Dr Shadduck was recommended by my GP to repair an inguinal hernia. Shadduck was excellent at patient/doctor interaction, knowledgeable and thorough in discussing what I had, and what to expect during and after the procedure. The procedure went as planned, no surprises. On the way to a complete recovery! I highly recommend Dr Shadduck to anyone in need of an inguinal hernia repair.

From the beginning Dr. Shadduck was able to diagnose my problem that I had had for nine years. Going back in to a nine year old surgery site was not my first choice so Dr. Shadduck tried other remedies in an effort to forego another surgery. When that did not work we agreed surgery was the last hope and best. He assured me that he had pin pointed the area of pain and that he was confident he could help. after the surgery and a few weeks of recovery as recommended, I am totally pain free.
