Patient Comments (2)

I was referred to Dr. Shoemaker for a minor yet painful affliction by my physician at 330 pm on a Monday. I needed an outpatient surgical procedure to correct the situation and my primary did no surgery. His office said come by ASAP. He and his team stayed late and I was home by 630 pm.
