"Dr. Shen performed spinal fusion on me. My surgery was 100 percent successful. He called me twice at home the week after my surgery to check on me. He came highly recommended and I'm so grateful to him for giving me my life back. I could not give a higher recommendation!"
“After 3+ years of pain caused by a congenital spondylolisthesis and multiple trips to multiple doctors that resulted in nothing but failed attempts to fix the issue, I was fortunate enough to come across Dr. Shen. Dr. Shen responded immediately to our email that described my problem and called me the next day. He set up a visit to his office and after a short consultation and review of my MRI, diagnosed the problem, and had a plan of action. On Jan 28th, Dr. Shen operated on my back using his least invasive procedures. This is the first time in 3 years that I am pain-free. I am up to walking one mile a day where I could only walk 50 ft. one week prior and am sleeping through the night instead of awakening 8-10 times. Dr. Shen’s office staff is also extremely accommodating, knowledgeable and accessible and it is such a pleasure to be able to talk to a real person on every call. I am so thankful to Dr. Shen and his staff for literally giving me back my quality of life.”
“Dr. Shen and his staff are very attentive to the needs of their patients and their care. No other doctor has called multiple times after surgery to check on my well-being. Dr. Shen listens to what his patients need to say and answers questions thoroughly. I am very pleased with the treatment I received as well as the explanation for surgery that was done. I am grateful that his staff called often after my procedure to answer questions as they came up.”
“I knew there were options to relieve back pain, but I never thought it was possible to have my pain completely gone! I used to think about my back pain every day, always adjusting my activities to lessen the pain. After sending my MRI to Dr. Shen’s office, I had an appointment 3 days later. Dr. Shen reviewed my MRI with me, explaining everything and answering all my questions. Within a week, my surgery was scheduled. Dr. Shen is immensely knowledgeable and caring. Today, I don't even think about my back pain. It's been 4 months since I had my surgery, and I am absolutely amazed at how great I feel. My life is no longer revolved around my back pain. Thank you, Dr. Shen!!”
“I have been having lumbar pain for years. The pain had been getting progressively worse and unbearable at times for the past two years and was also causing numbness and tingling of my feet and toes. I had been getting pain management injections for the past two years but that was just a temporary fix that lasted at most one month after each injection. I was then introduced to Dr. Shen and at first, had a consultation meeting with him. Dr. Shen reviewed my MRI and suggested that I undergo Endoscopic Spine Surgery. He explained to me that this was a non-invasive surgery and I would be able to walk out of the doctor's facilities the same day that I had the surgery. He was in fact true to his word. Dr. Shen explained everything about the surgery and answered all my questions. He is a wonderful and knowledgeable doctor. I was extremely surprised to receive a phone call from him the very next day after my surgery to see how I was feeling. I am feeling much better. Thank you, Dr. Shen!”
“Dr. Shen did a lower back fusion in March 2020 – I can't thank him enough for the compassion that he gave me from the first day I met him... he explained thoroughly what he was going to do, he literally told me what I was going to have done and how my recovery was going to be. My surgery was 100% successful, I honestly trusted him and he made my experience better than I ever thought (possible). I have my life back in 2 months! I can't thank him enough! His secretary Mary Jo and staff are all very good. I highly recommend him...thank you, Dr. Shen.”
“Thank you, Dr. Shen. So nice and caring, the only doctor I look forward to seeing! I will continue to see him to work through my spine issues. His bedside manners are amazing (and) he is fun to visit with. He is the best endoscopic surgeon with amazing skill…He took great care of me during my surgery, I felt very comfortable and confident.”
"Went with my husband who has spinal stenosis and degenerative disk disease to have a consult with Dr. Shen yesterday and we could not be happier with how thorough and compassionate Dr. Shen and his team were. I am not someone who rates doctors based on their bedside manner. Personally, I don’t care how nice you or your office are. I care about your track record as a surgeon and your surgical patient outcomes. So, judging on Dr. Shen’s outstanding surgical outcome track record and extremely thorough bedside manner, you would be missing out not having a consultation."
"Dr. Shen was awesome. I am pain-free after being able to walk no more than 20-30 yards without stopping and sitting or bending. He was able to do surgery without fusion. Loved his bedside manner. He called me on Sunday to check on me. His staff was great. The nurse was available to answer questions. Highly recommend."
