    What a thorough doctor! I was so impressed. So many doctors' offices make you fill out so many forms with questions and then the doctor hasn't even looked at it before seeing you. Dr. Shoemaker had read everything and looked at tests I had brought, then went through everything with me. He was very thorough with his exam and then put me through some tests. He explained everything very well and made me as comfortable as he could.

    He was rude, 45 min. Late coming to the office, unprofessional passing information to another dr. Destroyed medical records .

    Everyone I spoke with said the procedure I was going to have was going to hurt, needles are involved and I have a massive fear of needles. Dr. Shoemaker was patient with me and I didn't even feel it. No pain at all just a little discomfort but definitely not what I was expecting. He was patient and explained the procedure and the outcome. He couldn't have been nicer. I am so glad my Nuerosurgeon referred me to him.

    I had a 10:30 am appt Tue. I was called the day b4 to confirm. I arrived at 10:15 am and was told the Dr was on his way. I was told 3 other times the Dr was on his way. At 10:53 the Dr comes in the front door, turns his head away from me and walks through the lobby. At 11 am the Dr comes to the lobby door and says I will see you now I stood up and asked why no apology or thanking me for waiting. The Dr closed the door in my face saying I should see another Dr. Must have flunked bedside manor
