Dr. Shalek ROCKS! It\'s profoundly obvious he genuinely cares for his patients. I have be visiting with him for years. The first 5 to 8 minutes of each of our visits is spent with us catching up on our respective personal life-stories and events. Years ago he insisted I have a calcium deposit scan. It was one of the smartest preventative-health-maintenance decisions we made. Since then I have sent several of my friends there to have the same scan.
