Patient Comments (4)
in Loveland, Co |
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.
Fort Collins, CO |
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.
in Ft Collins, CO |
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!
