Dr. Shenefelt spent a whopping 3 minutes with me for a skin allergy test where I had 108 chemical agents on my back for 3 days. I was crying after I was told I was allergic to something very common. He left the room without saying anything. I said I had questions and he told me to ask the nurse. A nurse then told me to be happy I'm not dying of cancer. Worst doctor experience ever.

Mother of a two year old baby girl on her 18th day of an undiagnosed condition with persisting fever of over 104 degrees and hundreds of pus filled lesions over her entire body. Shenefelt didnt want to hear about the symptoms or history of her illness that could possibly have led him to understanding what ever she's experiencing, and then properly diagnose it. Neither did he take the time to examine my daughters hundreds of lesions on her body. He was uninterested, and didn't answer questions.

Rushed through appointment, ignored health concerns, dismissive, walked out of appointment. Simply said stop scratching as if it were something I hadn't thought of. When asking the front desk for a different doctor for a new appointment, I saw him leaving for the day, which would explain why he didn't remotely seem interested in what I had to say. I go day to day miserable because my skin looks so terrible and for someone who professes in dermatology to just say that and nothing more is absurd

Reluctant to provide treatments that are approved by Medicare out of fear on not getting reimbursed, wants patient to pay first and file claim themselves contrary to Medicare accepted providers rules. While he works for USF Clinics he has taken it upon himself to interpret incorrectly Medicare rules, rather than leave it up to the clinic's billing dept. Not focuses on giving medically necessary treatments due to his misplaced paranoia.
