Review for Dr. Shuff

Dr. Shuff made me feel very comfortable, took the time to listen to my story, and validated my complaints of pain. He went over my xrays with me and explained why I was feeling the pain in my hip and knee, and then his plan for treatment. I would recommend him without any hesitation.

Review for Dr. Shuff

Best experience. Office staff great. I called before they even had a referral and got me right in. Everyone in waiting room said he was the best. I agree. Listens and explains things well. I had a rare cancer and he knew just what to do.

Review for Dr. Bush

Dr. Shuff put me at ease the minute he walked in the room. He took the time to listen to me and to explain what was going on. He gave me his opinion on what needed to be done and supported my decision, even when I called the next day and changed my mind. I highly recommend Dr. Shuff!
