She is such a thorough provider. She asks for my input about my treatment and gives options. I feel that she cares about the results I want to see and is committed to helping me obtain them. My appointments are scheduled before I leave the office and I always get reminders. My prescriptions are always at the pharmacy within a matter of 15 mins or so after the appointment.

Dr. Shanesmith was cordial, professional, and knowledgeable. I had one very small concern. When, on my first visit to her a few months ago, she initially examined my face for signs of skin cancer, she did not detect anything. I then happened to remember that one day when I was washing my face, a place on my temple bled briefly. She re-examined that spot and then detected what she thought was a possible basal cell carcinoma, for which I ultimately received Mohs surgery. It concerned me a little that she didn't detect it at first, BUT, on the other hand, she examined my entire body during the appointment, taking lots of time and care, so perhaps the visible signs of the basal cell carcinoma were very subtle. I have returned to Dr. Shanesmith for an examination of another questionable spot on my face, and I was satisfied with the visit.I will continue to request appointments with her in the future.

I have been in twice to see Rebecca and she has looked at my skin and made her assessment but has never taken a skin sample or mentioned she was going to. I guess I do not understand how she can exactly tell what I have. My condition has cleared up for the most part but I still have some concerns. She is very kind and very professional , I should probable be more vocal and ask more ?.
