Dr. Shantz is personable, on time and caring. He gets to the core of the matter in a relaxed way, making an otherwise stressful appointment light and easy. He has actually responded to us in a family emergency at night when no one else would. He is bright and I recommend him highly.
Love Dr. Shantz. I came from a practice where I was a number and here I feel like I'm a patient. He never seems rushed and never makes me wait. I'm also afraid to post because I don't want him to take on new patients or this might change but I also want to be honest. Great doctor great practice
I read all the reviews and I am wonder are these fake reviews? Or are we talk about Ian Shantz. No of the review have not been my experience. At times I feel that I am not being understood and since I have a terminate illness, I could even less. The staff take blood pressures so fast that the just guess. Dr. Shantz is friendly but don't confuse friendliness with actually preformance. He uses a computer that tells him to ask certain questions. Also,depend on you insurance you might get better treatment. As for electronic records, well not everything is recorded and getting actual copies is a problem. It also can be a security risk. I have go to this doctor 4 times and the review post can not be true. I question everyone of them. No doctor know everything, that what specialist are for. Getting advice from a specialist would be better than saving time and money and getting advice from a family practice doctor. Please if you going to post a review please be totally honest.
Dr. Shantz is clearly a physician possessing everything it takes to be one of the best doctors around. He is knowledgable, caring, relaxed, friendly, and most importantly, he seems to be very commited to practicing medicine for all the right reasons. The money seems to be very secondary to him. He was born to practice medicine. He reminds me of what doctors were like before medicine became a business. Before medical decisions were made by high school graduates at HMO's who ask physicians in scolding voices if the charge is "like really really necessary".
He carries around his laptop and maintains all your medical history in digital form. He takes the time to listen and will not diagnose out of ignorance, he'll listen to what works and doesn't work for you and prescribe accordingly. A good doctor.
Doctor Shantz is the best. It's hard to find a good caring doctor these days. I called his office to get the results of my pregnancy test and the nurse told me it was negative, but then he called 2 times that same afternoon just to asked if I had any questions. He is a sweetheart and very professional.
