This is the worst doctor. I advise anyone who has shoulder issues to not see this doctor or go to an aurora healthcare him and this business scammed me out of 1400 dollars for an MRI that I did not need. He isn't nice and doesn't listen to his patients concerns. DO NOT GO TO THIS DR!

Dr. Shovers took excellent care of my mother's hip replacement. He was considerate, helpful, knowledgable, and approachable. He answered all our questions and expanded on them when more info was needed. He made a difficult situation much easier for all of us. Thank you!
