Dr. Shumway is a wonderful doctor! He has more experience than most surgeons when it comes to body and face. He does not rush his patients into surgery and carefully presents risks and benefits. Dr. Shumway is a very good listener. Cherise, the Patient Care Coordinator, is very knowledgeable on a variety of procedures and makes you feel very comfortable, as a new patient (especially when in crisis). When speaking to Cherise you know she is experienced from her responses. At other doctors offices I have felt pressured to book a surgery date immediately or purchase cosmetic creams in an effort to up-sell their services....but not here! Dr. Shumway and his office staff are very down to earth. This is the kind of office you enjoy coming to when you are dealing with a cosmetic issue. Mary the ultrasound technician is very sweet and soothing. I look forward to coming here in the future for all of my cosmetic needs.
Hi there, Welcome and thanks so much for offering your opinion on your doctor.

It would be great if you could give us a little more detail about your experience - such as why you had the surgery, tips for getting good results, pros/cons, information on the recovery/pain/downtime and before & after photos.

As the community manager, I'm asked all the time to keep encouraging people to share more details, which is so helpful for others considering these procedures. So please accept this as a well-intentioned request from thousands.
