Patient Comments (2)
in San Francisco, CA |
I have been Dr. Shore's patient for over 30 years. Dr. Shore is a truly remarkable Primary Care Physician (PCP). He is always current in all aspects of family care and judicially arranges referrals to specialists when appropriate. Dr. Shore respects his patients and listens and listens and listens to what a patient is saying. That results in superb care. I feel fortunate that I was able to choose Dr. Shore as my PCP.

My PCP moved on and Dr. Shore has now become my contact physician. I went to see him with regard to a possible serious condition. He has been helpful, up front and extremely responsive.
