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.

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.
