Not enough accolades to apply to this provider! Dr. Shannon is, by far, the BEST diabetic doctor I have had since my pediatrician back in 1956! I feel totally confident in his medical knowledge and application to my personal living experience. I trust I have many years to come due to Dr. Mike's contribution to my medical team!

Dr Shannon is the best. His expertise and guidance have enabled me to achieve excellent control of my Type 1 diabetes. I have been under his care for years for my diabetes and some other conditions. Every time I have needed him he has been present, thoughtful, considerate and courteous. I am sure I wouldn't be as healthy as I am today without his care.

Dr. Shannon gave a balanced approach to my care and considered all factors involved. He also was willing to do extra research for me when I had a question and he did a nice job of explaining the medical decisions he recommended. He is also a really cheerful and fun doctor to be around which makes going to the doctor a joy.

Dr. Shannon is simply one of the best physicians on the planet, period. (This includes my wife, who is also a physician.) I've seen close to 100 physicians in my life, and Dr. Shannon tops them all, mostly because he understands that other health issues (associated with primary care) affects endocrine health, so he is just as concerned and helpful on seemingly non-endocrine-related issues.

07/05/2017
Dr. Shannon is the best. He sees so many patients and yet somehow makes you feel as if you are the only one. Excellent personality and never condescending. To date the best doctor I have ever dealt with. Kudos to Dr. Shannon. Thank you.

My provider was amazing. HE actually spoke to me like a person and wanted to know if I had any questions and if there was anything else that he could do to help me with my health care questions. I actually got goose bumps because I felt like I was treated as a person and knowing that he wanted to collaborate with me and not dictate what should be done based on studies or a report.

I've never had a bad experience at this providers office. I've been Dr Shannon and his staff for quite a few years now and I can honestly say it's perhaps the most Professional, Proficient, Comprehensive, Kind and Courteous organization I have EVER gone to. His knowledge base is beyond compare and his ability to engage with his patients is Exemplary. I have, and will continue, to recommended his practice to anyone who needs this specialized care with no reservation in doing so.

I have only had one issue w/dr.;s office in the near 7 years I have been seeing him [...]. I was supposed to get an Rx filled, and it was not called in and my email req. did not get answered right away and when I called the office VM had an old msg. that only have the option to call 911. So I was without for a day, but I was taken care of next business day so it all worked out. Otherwise all other interactions with Dr. Shannon and his staff have been excellent.

Dr. Michael Shannon is an amazing physician and person. He is knowledgeable and communicates exceptionally well with me! He encourages me regarding my chronic condition (type 1 diabetes--60 years!) and always makes me feel confident in my ability to live successfully with this disease. I always leave encouraged from my time with him. I also trust his recommendations and referrals explicitly! He really seems to understand me and how I think. For me, he is an excellent match of physician and patient!

all fine

Dr. Shannon used to have a better schedule, which was nice for someone like me who works full time as well as being a parent. My only complaint would be that he is out of the office quite a bit and hard to schedule with. I also have had to see someone else in the office due to cancellations by the office, not myself. I know that none of this is his fault, but it is frustrating.

From the first visit with Dr. Shannon I could tell he was going timber abgret fit for me and my needs. I always look forward to my appt each year and always come away with a great experience. Dr. Shannon is clearly the best doctor I have ever had the pleasure to deal with, and I work at a hospital!
