"Hands down the best doctor, physician, surgeon and medical professional that I have ever had an experience with. Dr. Shenaq seamlessly balances bedside manner, a relentless pursuit for accomplishing the desired results all while setting realistic patient expectations and making you feel as though you are the only patient he is seeing. His attention to detail is beyond measure. The quality of his work is an art-form and he will take all the time in the world he needs and that you need from the moment you meet for a consultation to not giving up until he is satisfied in the operating room, and then any follow up consultations and appointments afterwards. He sees it through to the end and keeps the relationship going and is accessible. The most approachable Doctor I have ever met and although he does this work everyday...each patient, each approach is unique and tailormade. I was hopeless I could ever be confident again and Dr. Shenaq gave that back. I am forever grateful. Thank you!"
"Given a breast cancer diagnosis is a gut punch. Having the right team surrounding you is vital in your process to the road to recovery to the "new you". If you are looking for your team, make sure you choose Dr. Jay Shenaq with Plastic Surgery of Houston. I was never placed in the hands of a Physician’s Assistant at any follow up visit. Dr. Shenaq carefully monitored my recovery personally for my reconstruction from start to finish due to a bilateral mastectomy. He is voted numerous times as a Patient’s Favorite Surgeon in Houston and there’s a reason, he’s mine for sure!"
"Dr. Shenaq has been amazing with my reconstruction. I am so grateful for all he has done to help me. His staff is amazing as well. I can’t thank them enough, my life is forever changed."
"I am grateful to have Dr. Shenag on my care team. Before going into a bilateral mastectomy surgery, I thought I would need an additional surgery for the reconstruction, but Dr. Shenag was miraculously able to do immediate reconstruction to save me from having another surgery. Not only he saved me from going through another painful surgery, he again miraculously reconnected the damaged nerves for me to be able to feel sensation again, Unfortunately, pain is the first sensation I feel but I know it is only temporary since it takes time for nerves to heal. I can’t thank Dr. Shenag and his staffs ( Jessica & Desiree) enough for taking care of me…🙏🙏🙏"
