Dr. Shenker has been an excellent doctor who has helped me for many years. When I was hospitalized for vertigo twice and in the E.R., he coordinated efforts to have certain tests done for me immediately. He also visited me in the hospital when this occurred. He has coordinated me with certain doctors such as a diabetic doctor and a cardiologist. He takes periodic blood tests on me and… See more
Dr. Shenker and his staff have always been there whenever I needed them Dr. Shenker supported my husband when he had a catastrophic cancer. During the time of his demise, I was having chemo for a serious cancer, which we beat. Dr. Shenker came to my chemo treatment to tell me of Don's death and later came with his wife to the funeral. What a kind and brilliant man. Thanks, Dr. Shenker
Dr. Shenker is a very compassionate and caring doctor. I have been a patient of his from before he joined the MDVIP program. If and when I'm sick, he always calls me to check on how I'm feeling and I find that so comforting. His staff has been with him for many years and they are amazing!!
I was taking a tour in Canada with a companion, and the weather was really erratic, with changes of 8 - 10 degrees in the different cities we went to. My companion got a virus and couldn't speak or do anything, as she was really suffering.
When I arrived home I called the doctor, and he said he would see her that afternoon. He checked her, and gave her medication.

Dr. Shenker listened to me complain about my energy for two years. When I was too weak to stand, I was admitted to Aventura Hospital. Dr. Shenker sent in an endocrinologist who diagnosed me. Dr. Shenker is a smart, compassionate doctor with a super intelligent staff. He saved my life!!
Dr Shenker and the wonderful ladies that do their best to keep us healthy have made a huge difference in our care. They feel more like family or friends then a healthcare group. Since they care for me and four of the most important people in my life, I am very glad that we found them. Thank you
Dr. Shenker has done a fantastic job in keeping me as well as possible. When there is a major problem such when I was hospitalized 6 months ago with vertigo, he was coordinating with the doctors and staff there to follow his directions to get me healthy. When my glucose level was way too high, he directed me to an endocrinologist. Dr. Shenker has sent me to a cardiologist or other doctors… See more
Having experienced offices filled with patients and waiting for hours, having an appointment with Dr. Shenker is an incredible experience. Barring an emergency he is always on time and I don't have to wait days for an appointment.
Dr . Shenker was willing to prescribe medication for my visiting granddaughter when her own physician wouldn't do so. Several times I have called… See more
Whenever I called with what I thought was a serious problem, the doctor would always return the call to discuss with me the problem.
His office staff are great, making an office appointment either the same or next day, and handling any clerical issues that arise.
I am very glad I go to Dr. Shenker.
