Dr. Shannon is a specialist not a primary care provider. I always have had a very good experience at Dr. Shannon's office, from the receptionist when I first wall in until the minute I leave the office. The employees are always quick to help and very respectful, not only to me but to others patients.

Dr. Shannon is hands down the best provider I've ever seen. I assume he must remind himself on the way into room, but he always comes in knowing me, my general history and even a few non medical facts about me. I don't care if he's got a page in my record that he reads 2 seconds before he walks in. The way he comes in showing he knows who he's seeing automatically gives me comfort and the feeling that he cares about me. I'm important enough to him to go through all this trouble. Dr. Shannon is the example all providers should follow.
