Chapel Hill, NC |
I was referred to Dr. Shadduck by my Primary Care Physician for exploring whether I needed hernia surgery. I met with him twice and found him caring, informed and very collaborative. We talked about the pros and cons of having surgery at this time and decided that I would "wait and see." I felt valued for my intelligence and ability to sort out all the considerations Dr. Shadduck presented. He would be the #1 general surgeon that I would recommend in the Triangle Area of North Carolina.

I was first referred to another surgeon that lacked in bed side manner, and did not take my situation very seriously. After meeting with that surgeon I asked my GP to refer me to a different surgeon. That's when I met with Dr. Shadduck. From my very first visit with him I felt he understood the urgency of my situation and that it needed immediately attention. He performed the surgery the very next morning and I felt was very thorough in follow-up. I would highly recommend Dr. Shadduck!

Dr. Shadduck and his staff are the best!! He was very thorough & covered all options prior to surgery as it was a complicated surgery.
