What People Say About Dr. James Shockey, MD
Reply
Having seen Dr. Shockey for my knees, I already regarded him as a top notch physician. However, yesterday he spent over 30 minutes with me diagnosing a problem he doesn't even treat! Why? Because I was worried and in pain. He listens, he understands, and he deals in straight talk. There is no other orthopedist I will go to, nor send my family to.
