She is thorough, personable, and takes the time to know you and your specific issues. She runs late all the time. Plan accordingly. One way around it is to schedule first appt. in the morning, or first after lunch. I will say — she gives you the same thorough time as she does the patients that put her behind. Parking is at a premium; leave plenty of time to circle the garage several times.

Dr. Shuman is very thorough and explains the conditions, side effects, possible reasons and treatment plans in layman's terms. Like an investigative research scientist she connects the dots and makes it easy to understand. I highly recommend her.

Top notch doctor! -- Dr. Shuman is an excellent listener, extremely knowledgeable, and she comes across as someone who really cares about you as a patient, and as a person. That's what makes her a top notch doctor in my book. I'd add that she's a rare find in today's medical community. She's a curious problem solver, particularly if you have a condition that has been nagging you and you've been without answers. All I can say, is "definitely recommend".

Very bad customer service after my in-office appointment, including attempts to keep the doctor from calling me back, saying they were too busy to allow telephone calls from the doctor, that she is too busy for such trivial matters. I would be pleased to email you a complete summary regarding my dissatisfaction.

Dr Shuman takes a very high level of interest in her patients, finding out about the whole medical situation so she can provide comprehensive and very effective treatment. She does not rush the visits and she empathizes with the patient as well as makes excellent decisions on treatment. She is an outstanding doctor and I would highly recommend her. She takes time to explain causes, options, treatments and medications.
