"I 1st went to Dr. Shannon with a very rare form of cancer called CTCL. I immediately liked him. He was kind and gentle. He never let me leave without being sure I had all my questions answered. He made me feel that everything was going to be ok. I always left there feeling positive. He got me into remission after 3 years. I stayed that way for 5 years and it came back. My insurance changed and I had to see another doctor. He was fine but sent me to University Hospital. I ended up back with Dr. Shannon last year and again I am near remission!! I love him. He is the best and I am so thankful for him!"
