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.

Providence provides a service MyChart which allows patient and networked doctors to communicate care advice, appointment scheduling, test results and other medical issues. This service is very important to this provider and I have found it very beneficial to myself. I have made an effort to find doctors and medical staff in the Providence network based on the MyChart service.

Dr Shannon is absolutely the best. He has always been honest and upfront as well as accurate and correct in his treatment and care plans for me. I had [...] during my pregnancy and he took excellent care of me and my unborn baby son. At birth my baby was a perfectly normal weight, I had zero complications with the birth, delivered vaginally and my son never had to visit the NICU. I followed Dr. Shannon's instructions to the letter and he helped me have a perfect baby. Thank you doctor Shannon. I will forever be grateful and will always refer my friends and family to you!

I see Dr. Shannon for my diabetes. I feel he does a very good job over all the only exception is I never know when he is done with the visit for sure. He will often say something like. I will get ???? and then someone else come back. This is not a big problem I just feel that he should let me know that he is finished with me. I never remember to mention this when I am there.
