I have one life and one back to live it with. That being said, I would trust my quality of life with no other person than Dr. Shogan. I am an elem. Principal, not a professional athlete yet he and his staff have always treated me as if I were. He is skilled, honest and a person of the highest integrity. He may not have saved my life in some traumatic incident yet he did improve the quality of the life I have left live. I am grateful for such extraordinary individuals. Philip Trejo, La Junta, CO
