As a former patient of Paul Shank I highly recommend a different health care provider. I am a 90% (rated by the VA) disabled vet and I went to see Shank after having serious residual effects from my head injury in the hopes that he would be able to help me.

Not only did he completely reverse the medications that my military physicians had me on: my painkillers, anxiety medication. Leaving me to deal with a traumatic brain injury, seizures, severe headaches (not migraines - pain so terrible that I couldn't see!), depression, anxiety, and many other physical/psychological ailments (causing me extreme anxiety, pain and depression, not to mention sending me into extreme withdrawal as well).

Fortunately I made an appointment out at the Beale AFB clinic the next-day and my military physician was able to treat me (he was also in total disbelief that Shank had refused to use the most effective medications despite my medical conditions pretty much requiring them as well as being fully documented).

Shanks "excuse" was that they were addictive drugs. My military physician said that Shank's notion was 'silly' seeing as I had documented injuries by military doctors, as well as a condition that is 'excructiatingly painful' and 'would be treated by any competent healthcare practitioner with painkillers and anxiolytics regardless' and said that alot of doctors like Shank probably dwell on the power that they have over their patients as well as the ability to cause them healing/suffering based on their whims. A god complex which made sense to me and is the reason why I am a FORMER patient.

As a former medical provider myself I can say that I find Paul Shank's practices HIGHLY questionable. His treatments are not effective, he exaggerates and sometimes completely fabricates information on patient's medical records, and all-in-all after it was a waste of money to see him.

Yuba City does have other providers that I think are excellent such as Dr. Brar, Dr. Kryski, and many many more, but Paul Shank is NOT one of them.

If you have already seen Shank for any reason I recommend getting a copy of your medical records, as I think there is a chance that you will find he wrote things that are untrue or exaggerated to say the least as he did when I saw him.

All in all I give him a 1 out of 5 stars and the 1 is only because he's a nice guy as a person but other than that a terrible medical practitioner.
