Dr. Shiley is the best doctor I've ever been treated by. I'm 57 and have been through three significant surgeries in my adult life, so I've seen more than my share of doctors! Dr. Shiley is friendly, patient, respectful, responsive, a good listener, and he's extremely knowledgeable. It's obvious that he enjoys his job and truly cares.
