I had a fall on a Saturday & I was contacted immediately by Dr. Shuster's office first thing Monday morning.Knowing that he's a busy man because he's a surgeon I didn't expect to be seen so quickly.His staff are very friendly & his PA, Mr. Boyd was also very friendly & very understanding to my situation. They are VERY caring & are taking every precaution necessary to make sure my issues are dealt with accordingly. I would recommend Dr. Shuster to everyone & I can't thank him enough for his time!
SPOKANE |
Checked in at his office at 7:50 since my appointment was at 8am. Didn't get taken back till 8:45. The first words out of his mouth were about how he would have to rush because I was late to my appointment. He than proceeded to rush through my appointment all the whole being blatantly rude and talking about how since my mom was there I must live with her and should improve my social habits. In the end he did nothing for my debilitating back pain. Worst experience ever.
I've never written an online review of medical care before but this one needs to be noted. Attempted for over a month, while in terrible, debilitating pain to get his office to respond to me. They requested all of my records going back almost 10 years, which was quite an ordeal to obtain given that I am unable to travel. Once (after a month) his office received my records I was informed he wanted to refer me somewhere else. I begged them to consider me as I am unable to work or function through
