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.

James Hayes – Dec 21, 2018
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.
