Shenandoah Valley Surgical Associates, Inc. had its early beginnings in the formation of Staunton Surgical Associates, Inc., in Staunton, Virginia. Staunton Surgical Associates was formed in 1974 by Dr.’s John Todd and Preston Manning, both general surgeons. Later in 1974, Dr. Donald Fowler joined the practice as the third general surgeon.
Dr. John Shayne joined the group in 1985, Dr. William Faulkenberry, II, in 1990, both general surgeons, and Dr. Timothy Spencer in 1993, as the first vascular surgeon. Dr. Fowler retired from Staunton Surgical Associates, Inc. in 1993 to begin working for Augusta Medical Center.
In 1994, Kings Daughters Hospital in Staunton, and Waynesboro Community Hospital in Waynesboro, merged to become Augusta Medical Center, now known as Augusta Health, in Fishersville, VA. At that point, Staunton Surgical Associates also moved to Fishersville and became Shenandoah Valley Surgical Associates, Inc.
Dr. William Thompson, a general surgeon, joined the group in 1994, and Dr. Manning retired a year later in 1995. Dr. Charles Goff, a vascular surgeon, joined Shenandoah Valley Surgical Associates, Inc. in 1999. Dr. Spencer retired in 2004, and that same year, Dr. Shayne moved to Texas to practice in San Antonio.
Shenandoah Valley Surgical Associates, Inc. welcomed Dr. Donald Carmichael, a general surgeon, in 2005. In 2007, Dr. Jacek Paszkowiak , a vascular surgeon, joined Dr.’s Faulkenberry, Thompson, Goff, and Carmichael, completing the present group of surgeons.
Many of the core beliefs that were established in 1974 when the group was first formed are still carried out today. Shenandoah Valley Surgical Associates, Inc. prides itself in providing quality surgical care while extending courtesy and respect to patients and their families.
