Dr. Shinaman is great! He has really helped me manage pain I've dealt with for several years after damage from cancer treatments. He listens and offers real options...not drugs just to mask issues. I would not hesitate to seek his help for pain management and reduction. And Lauren, on his staff, is a gem!

Dr. Shinaman has given me my life back! In 2014 I was struck with debilitating pelvic pain which for the most part, made me house bound as I wasn't able to do much more than lie on my back all day. After 2 years of seeing so many doctors, including specialist and UCSF and Stanford, with no help at all, I finally found Dr. Shinaman. He was the ONLY doctor that has been able to come up with a plan to keep my pain controlled so I can live my life and take care of my family. I am so grateful.
