"Dr. Shell-Masouras is absolutely wonderful!!!! She recognized I was in a serious situation when I first met her. She immediately arranged scheduling for additional tests before I left the initial appointment. The tests where completed in a timely manner due to her keen awareness and expertise which enabled the oncologist to start chemotherapy. Dr Shell-Masouras also worked late to fit me into her full surgery schedule. As a result I was able to have my port surgically implanted immediately which enabled quick initiation of my cancer treatment. I can't thank her enough. I'm continuing my journey in very good hands with Dr. Shell-Masouras. I feel very fortunate to have her on my team!"
"Dr Shell Masouras is a kind, compassionate and highly skilled breast specialist. From the moment I received her first call with the news that I had bi lateral breast cancer until my follow up visits, post treatment, she has always taken the time for my personalized care and has been with me the entire journey. Her concern lies within your individual case and the most effective means of treating you as a person and breast cancer patient. I absolutely made the correct decision walking through her door and trusting her guidance and abilities with my life."
"I switched Breast Doctors because I was not being seen by the MD but her assistant and didn't feel comfortable with the treatment being used. I am so pleased with Dr. Shell-Masouras. She is prompt and physically sees me at all visits. Her reference to a third specialist has proven very helpful. A am so glad I switched in spite of the fact that I don't need any more follow-up. Just knowing I have a reputable specialist for my breast problem in the event I need one is very reassuring to me."
"Dr. Shell-Masouras was more than just my breast surgeon, she was a friendly voice, a reassuring physician, and an amazing surgeon. Her and all of her staff are welcoming and friendly. I am glad I found her and will be forever thankful to her for what she helped me conquer and for what she does for her community."
"Dr. Shell-Masouras is one of my guardian angels. From my very first contact with her I knew I was in good hands. She is an excellent communicator who not only explains complicated medical matters well, but also listens with care and compassion. Her beside manner was so helpful during what was a frightening time for me. Even though it's now years later and I'm doing great, I still get a quick response whenever I call with a question or concern. Dr. Shell-Masouras is the whole package and I am so grateful she is my physician."
"If you need a breast surgeon you would be in great hands with Dr. Shell. She is amazing!"
"I have been a patient of Dr. Shell-Masouras for several years. Having had fibrocystic breast disease for 25 years and multiple biopsies, Dr. Shell-Masouras has had me on a very consistent care plan with additional imaging when required. In July, 2020, my films unfortunately came back with calcifications that required biopsy. We felt the results would be benign because the other 8 biopsies had been. Not so lucky this time, and when she called me with the results, she was so compassionate and caring and had already organized the next steps that made me feel secure. We met as a family to discuss treatment. Dr. Shell-Masouras performed a bilateral mastectomy on August 17, 2020. Reconstruction was started at the same time. The key point in doctor-patient relationships is to feel safe in asking the hard questions. In a follow-up appointment, I asked her if I made the right decision about mastectomy rather than lumpectomy and further treatment. She said, “Absolutely. Your case wasn’t a matter of ‘if’ it would come back; “it was a matter of when.” She said, “This is a win for our side.” I believe this too. Dr. Shell-Masouras saved my life, and that is not being dramatic. This is real life. After 25 years of being imaged and biopsied, I’m not sure how much more I could have endured. I have the utmost respect for her. Her office manager, Yana, is outstanding in every way. She, too, is compassionate and efficient. I am blessed to have my doctor. Her kindness in handling her patients should be a model for other doctors."
"Dr. Shell-Masouras is more than a 5 star review. When she provided me with my bilateral breast cancer diagnosis, she was compassionate and concerned about me. She made me feel as though I was her only patient, always available for questions and concerns. From diagnosis to surgery smooth, every step of the way. She is smart and talented with a sensitivity that reassures you she will help you through. She provided every option available to me and guided me along, allowing me to choose what was the right choice for ME! I will forever be grateful for her. Yana her office Manager is equally as compassionate and so easy to communicate with, she made all appointments for other treatments that coincide with having breast cancer. Always left the office fully informed. To say I am thankful is an understatement, I am blessed to have been directed to Paradise Coast Breast Specialists."
