Dr. Shores provides care for my elderly mother-in-law. It is often a challenge to see older people in an office because of their memory problems, lengthy medication lists, or visual or hearing deficits. Dr. Shore was incredibly patient, never betraying any impatience or a need to rush. He was willing to be flexible and try a different approach when the standard one wasn't working.

I was referred by my primary doctor. The person who called me to set up for screening colonoscopy was rude and very impatient. She did not listen to me and was more concerned about running out the door at 1 pm on Friday which is when they close. I canceled the appnt and will see services elsewhere. They are worst than MUSC GI department. My impression is that this is a cattle call, cash maker for this offices as they are pushing colonoscopies on everyone.

Dr. Shores changed my life! Of the 25+ gastroenterologists I've seen in my lifetime, Dr. Shores is the most informed, patient, and caring! I have referred several people to him and everyone has received the same exemplary service and care!
