Absolutely the most competent physician I have ever been treated by in my 78 years of life. When diagnosed with stage 3 LYMPHOMA Dr. Shelanski presented cancer 101 to my daughter, husband and myself. He started me on chemotherapy. I was never even once sick to my stomach or ill feeling. The only side effect that I had was extreme tiredness. The infusion nurses at McKee Medical Center in Loveland, CO were excellent and calming. Dr. Shelanski is brilliant, compassionate, kind and reassuring. I would recommend him to anyone facing cancer treatment!

Dr. Shelanski is both a knowledgeable and compassionate physician, who advocates for his patients. He went far above expectations to assist me with getting an appointment with a specialist outside of my network. A true professional who openly admits when it is appropriate to access other opinions. He gave me the gift of hope, while being honest and direct. A rare find in this day of commercialized health care.

I would recommend Dr. Shelanski. He is straight forward and to the point when discussing treatment options. I am alive almost 3 years when the original diagnosis gave me 6 months if I had chosen to go without treatments. My diagnosis was Stage 4 lung cancer and I trust Dr. Shelanski to determine the best method of treatment.

Overall Dr. Shelanski is a good physician and explains most things in an understandable manner. One thing to keep in mind is that he doesn't follow up with you as needed for results or additional information. Expect to have to call his assistant to request the information.

Very honest and upfront about diagnosis and treatment, but very caring. Able to read people well enough to know how much depth of info people want and when. Never minded If family, friends were there for support. Excellent and supportive office staff as well. Great sense of humor.

Dr. Shelanski is an intelligent, compassionate doctor. He spends a lot of time patiently explaining things and answering questions. I've also seen him work with some of my friends, and he's aggressive about treating the cancer, but also honest about side effects and outcomes. The staff is great, and I love his dog!
