Dr. Harish Shownkeen reviewed my MRI and MRA scans on a monitor with me and found an image of a possible abnormality that would require a diagnostic cerebral angiography to completely rule out anything vascular that is causing my head pressure and ear inflammation (pulsatile tinnitus) leading potentially to correcting the ongoing symptoms.

I had an appointment to see him, to schedule my angiogram. NP did everything and then called for Him to come up. Im extremely disappointed that he could not be bothered to come up to the office and speak to me - I overhead him tell the NP that he wanted to get coffee and to just schedule the test. The NP then make an excuse for him. It was ridiculous. I dont appreciate it. The NP was wonderful. Just disappointed in the doctor.

Caring Doctor. Excellent bed side manners. So thorough. He actually reads the patient's chart & cross references with her primary care doctor notes & knows exactly what is happening with the patient. I feel he has my mom's best interest at heart at all times! Other doctors barely flip through 2 pages of your chart. I am so impressed with this doctor. He has really made me feel comfortable with his knowledge. Very happy beyond words!

Dr. Shownkeen, Stacy, Ingrid & his staff is beyond outstanding!! They are so thorough reading through all records from other doctors & cross referencing details for the patient. They call when they are supposed to & are willing to conference me in since I manage my mom's health long distance. They are so respectful, kind, caring, enormously patient....I could on & on. This doctor & staff have me so impressed beyond words. I highly recommend them. They show compassion & passion for the oath they took to care for patient's health. I absolutely love them & feel so comfortable when I talk with them. They never make us feel rushed or unimportant. They take the time to help me understand what's needed to aid my mom. Stacy took time to type me an explanation email with long worded medication names so that I was better equipped to help my mom figure out if she was taking her medications correctly. This kindness is unseen today in medical fields. Dr. Shownkeen is so tender with my mom & kind to her even though she is slow to understand what he is asking her. I am so pleased & amazed with this doctor & staff! I absolutely recommend him. He is the best! I wish we could clone him & have other doctor's learn his bedside manner! Never change! You are above the rest by far!

I owe my extended life to Dr. Shownkeen. For this last visit, Dr. Shownkeen wanted CT Scan of my brain for an updated look at the artery. Afterward, his staff called and wanted to know if I wanted to come in or have a telephone discussion. As it turned out, there were no changes and I now don't have to go back for 2 years!! He's awesome!!

He is very thorough in reviewing test results with me, the patient, and discussing the options for possible future testing and/or treatment. Based on my experience over the last seven years, he is respected by those who work for and with him and by some who aspire to work for or with him. He is so studied in his work and always seems up to date on procedures and practices. I would hope not to need additional care in this field but since my situation indicates that the need continues, I have great confidence in Dr. Shownkeen and feel fortunate that he is close by to help me my issues.
