in Cookeville, TN |
Dr. Shack treated me with an incredible amount of respect and kindness. I had visited 3 other plastic surgeons before making my decision, and Dr. Shack and his nurse made the decision very easy. My breast reduction went smoothly, and Dr. Shack really took the time to make sure I would be happy with the result long term. Would recommend.
