I met Dr Shenker for the first time today, he is a very personable man and seemed to be very interested in his job and me as his patient. He listened to what I had to say and actually seemed genuinely interested in my problems. I would definitely recommend him to other patients.
I had been a patient of Dr Osters and was put on Dr Shenkers list when he left. I have found him to be very personable; he looks at me, listens then searches for the evidence attached to my notes, to backup the reasons for his plan of treatments. He gives me time to collect myself so I can interact, query and challenge his course of action; he always seems sure of the direction best to go in. Presently he has stopped Methotrexate and Tofacitinib as my neutophil scores are very low. He appreciates the best course may not necessarily be the easiest but he assures me his long term aim, in his experience, will be the best course.
Dr Shenker takes the time to listen , treats and understands one as an individual and most importantly cares how one actually is feeling. He has great knowledge in Rheumatology and of pain control I travel in excess of 200 miles to ensure that I receive the best treatment I can for my condition that is how much faith I have in the charming Doctor.
I recently saw Dr Shenker at Clinic 5 in Addenbrookes, I found him to be very friendly, thorough and reassuring. Essential qualities in making patients feel like individuals.
