After receiving bad news after bad news about my husband's condition, Dr. Shuffler put our minds at ease. He is very confident in himself, he listens and does not seem rushed, and he seems genuinely concerned about his patient. My husband will have follow up care to come, but so far, I would highly recommend Dr. Shuffler

I have been seeing Dr Shuffler for more than four years. Dr Shuffler takes time to visit with his patients and to listen to what they have to say. He diagrams examples on paper and explains in lay terms so that the patient can understand. As my cancer progressed; Dr Shuffler referred my case to Houston. There aren't many doctors that are concerned with their patients well being that they refer them out to other doctors that have greater knowledge in an area than they have... great doctor!

Rude makes patient feel like they are a problem. Bedside manner is not compassionate. Maybe he is great with older men but as a woman I don't find him to listen to me as a patient. Additionally the wait is forever in his office. Tells you your pain is in your head!
