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!
Downhill fast since changes to office and move ..., Mar 7, 2013
Something has happened since he joined NYU. No one answers the phones, have to call for weeks just to get a response, long wait with doc spending no time with you. This is not the level of care or service people expect from a doctor.
Been a patient for a very long time..................., Feb 20, 2013
I have been a patient for a very long time with Dr. Conrad. He has been in practice for quite some time and is very knowledgeable. My daughter and her husband were very pleased with their experience. But I knew they would be because I am.
Not very helpful, wouldn't prescribe me meds that I'd been on for years..., Nov 21, 2012
As an internal medicine doctor I can see that she tries, but she's not very helpful. I was regularly seeing another doctor that worked at the same office as her and my usual PCP left so the office automatically rolled me over to her. She gave me a hard time prescribing me the same medications that I'd been on for YEARS AND YEARS and eventually just started denying me my regular medicines saying that she wanted me to get my prescriptions from different specialists every time I need a refill (I originally got these prescriptions prescribed to me BY specialists, then the specialists say to me "Everything is fine, you can get these filled by your PCP and just come back for check ups once or twice a year" Which I DO. To have to get my prescriptions filled by all the different specialists is a huge pain in the ass, especially WHEN I'VE BEEN ON THESE MEDS FOR YEARS AND YEARS. Wouldn't recommend her.
