Horrid doctor do not go to her. Don't know who gave her a license...., May 5, 2013|
This doctor is a joke, she doesn't care about your health. Also, she doesn't seem to really listen to you when you talk. Truthfully I felt very uncomfortable with her and could't wait to get out. How did she get her license?
I would not recommend her to a friend. Get a second opinion..., Apr 7, 2013|
I would not recommend her to a friend. She over-diagnoses and over-treats. Make sure you get a second opinion to be certain of the diagnosis before you commit to treatment. Thank you very much and that is all I am going to say...
Dr Shimkus is a gem, a highly recommended oncologist..., Mar 17, 2013|
Dr Shimkus treated my wife's glioblastoma, working with doctors at MD Anderson. He is the most accessible and compassionate doctor I have ever had the experience of knowing. For instance, he has his cell number on his business card and responds to calls or text messages on weekends and evenings!
DO NOT GO! Read reviews on line. He is the worst!..., Mar 3, 2013|
Do not go to this doctor. You will be disappointed. He was the absolute worst! He makes mistakes that cause human suffering and then he cannot even admit that he has made a mistake. Read the reviews on line. They all say the same thing!
Good staff, horrible "doctor" - Wallet stuffer versus actual clinician ..., Feb 10, 2013|
In a few words?
- Horrible bed side manner; dodged questions and threatened to quit when we inquired about alternative treatment methods. This dude is older than the internet as we know it and he was throwing hissy-fits like a rabid Bieber-fan.
- Extremely pessimistic. Every conversation boiled down to DEATH. Look, I get that cancer is no walk in the park, but rubbing our faces in it is counterproductive and honestly, believe it or not, does more harm than good. After the nth time of being told "HE IS GOING TO DIE," we stopped talking to him about and kept his patient visits short.
- Biggest gripe? Cancer research is a constantly developing field and new, novel discoveries are made often enough that you might spot it in the newspaper or online. It should have been a huge red flag when this so-called M.D. was absolutely clueless about significant changes in our understanding of how cancer works.
Final remarks? He gave up on our father when we walked through the door the first time. Had we known of his lazy, outdated way of treatment, we would have walked right back out of that room without hesitation.
