Friendly, professional staff that listens to your situation and needs. Dr. Shimkus takes the time to discuss your condition and treatment options. I have trusted him for 4 years and counting and would not change doctors.

Dr. Shimkus takes his time with me during our visits, which is not common these days with doctors! And I’m always comfortable with the staff in the infusion room.
