      Doctor Shore-Shine was recommended to me by a trusted friend several years ago. I cannot find enough good words to describe my experience with her over the years. Doctor Shore-Shone is in expert in her field. But there are several additional qualities with make her to stand out compare to her peers. She has a deep knowledge of general medicine as well as holistic medicine. That combination makes her truly unique. Dr. Shore-Shine is a wonderful human being who puts her heart in helping her patients . I would absolutely recommend her to any of my family and friends . Million Thanks for everything!

      Dr Shore-Schein was the ONLY Dr who actually welcomed & valued my personal investment into my health & treatment. She always answered my calls, emails (night/weekends), which is rare these days from physicians. I have found her office & assistant to be MORE than helpful. Shes always gone above & beyond. Its disheartening reading neg comments. I cant help but notice 2 posted same day, diff locations, same issue? Sounds like a miserable person looking to invalidly defame, not validly rating a Dr.

      She's a 5, but getting in to see her was frustrating. The wait time was at least 1hr, and the waiting rm is cramped. The receptionists seemed friendly/helpful, but the doctor's assistant (forget the name - begins with an "A") was awful. Why doesn't she help her stay on time? She doesn't appear to do anything but hide in a side cube and gab on her phone. She leaves it up to the receptionists to manage everything, and when she does appear, she's just mean/nasty. Nope. I won't be going back.

      She's a wonderful doctor, but she has WAY too many patients (and keeps accepting new ones).. The wait time is between 1-2 hrs. Her office assistant in Swampscott is absolutely horrible (mean persona, won't respond to medicine refill requests, or forward messages to the doctor). She has a terrible attitude, and I just can't stand looking at her miserable scowl any longer, so I'm going to the other location. Try to avoid Swampscott if you can.

      She is a great doctor if you're looking for alternatives to medication. Unfortunately, i didn't find that we clicked and that's okay. She wanted me to go on a very strict diet but that is a very difficult thing for me to do and when i tried to explain this, we seemed to hit a wall. I had also requested more imaging and bloodwork but she didn't feel they were necessary.

      I saw her once and will be going to see her again soon. I am neutral at this time. I think she is knowledgeable and I like that - according to what some say - she doesn't prescribe too much meds, as I'd rather try healthy diet and natural remedies and excersize first. Based on my limited first time interaction, she is not the touchy-feely type and she does type your answers which might feel like she is not paying attention to you. I'd say give her a chance, then if not happy find someone else.

      Never have I been treated so poorly from a phsyican. During the Q&A with her, she was asking questions so fast as she typed them into the computer that I couldn't gather my thoughts or fully answer them. I felt rushed. One question she asked, so quickly, that I didn't hear her, & asked her to repeat it. She raised her voice, & in a condescending manner, repeated it to me. Told her how I felt about being rushed/spoken to, she then flipped out on me & told a woman to finish it. I then left myself.

      Dr. Shore-Schein listens and pays attention to the overall patient's situation. I have gone to her for over ten years. Doesn't prescribe a lot of meds, but gives alternatives. I just love and appreciate her.

      Don't go to this doctor if you want you question regarding a positive test answered. She not only does not let you ask the one question you went there for, but she doesn't even let you answer the questions she asks you. The frustration I felt leaving that office was a 10. Wasted my time and had no explanation regarding the positive test or my pain. And to think I waited over 30 minutes beyond my appointment time for this. Also was very free in criticizing other doctors, very unprofessional.
