Patient Comments (4)

Had my follow up with Shannon Armstrong today. He seemed more concerned about the bad review I left than anything else. I think I'll get a second opinion

You will be very happy with Dr. Armstrong and his staff. He preformed a 15 hour surgery on me to reconstruct my breasts after being diagnosed with breast cancer. He and his staff were very friendly and courteous through this awful ordeal. And . . . the results are great!

Dr. Armstrong's technical skills are unmatched. My results show it. On top of that he is one of the most kind, caring, and compassionate physicians I have ever met. I am priviledged and thankful to be in his care.
