Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

No compassion or respect
Truly disappointed. My wife needs medicine for pain. She was stuck in construction traffic and was on the way, so I went early to make sure to tell them she was coming (they didn't answer the phone). I saw her parking and walking in at 10-min past our appointment - they refused to see her. We waited 4 weeks for an appointment, drove 30 minutes and they said "she is 10 minutes late, we won't see her". Doctor was sitting in his office, refused to see her. Truly upsetting. Doctors code: "A physician shall be dedicated to providing competent medical service with compassion and respect for human dignity" - no compassion, no respect. Very upsetting.

×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. Michael Shell, DO?
I met Dr. Shell first time for my long overdue epidural back injection. He indicated he had reviewed my latest MRI imaging and listened to my concerns. He had a good sense of humor and wished me well as I left my injection appointment. I see no reason why any reasonable person would not find this Pain Doctor's treatments quite satisfactory. My previous pain doc had been Dr. Jenks for some 7-8 years. If you are a former Dr. Jenks client - fear not Dr. Shell !
