Dr. Shober is great. He is very smart and his advice is very reliable. I have had nurses at the Jameson Hospital say that he spends more time reviewing his patient records than most doctors. They say he takes the time to make the right decisions.

This office is nasty and very bad about getting back to you with test results. You are just a number here! Go elsewhere!
