What People Say About Dr. Richard Shinaman, MD
Reply
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.
