A positive first visit with Dr. Shively. He takes time to listen, explains and provides alternative solutions to classic medicine, i.e. not just expensive medication at first. Convenient and quick to get an appointment. Some confusion with the transfer of paperwork from another provider, but didn't impact the visit and consultation.

Dr. Shively is the best doctor I have ever visited in my life. He listens carefully to his patients concerns, and responds with treatment plans artfully crafted using his experience to the maximum. He truly has his patients as his number one concern and it shows. His staff, PAs and the other doctors in the practice that I have interacted with on occasion are first rate as well. Prime Care is constantly striving to improve patient outcomes and experience.

We have seen Dr. Shively after many disappointing experiences elsewhere. He cares about you as much as if you were his own family member. Sometimes you do wait, but it is because he listens to his patients and explains things well. This office is definitely not an assembly line. No rushing anyone out the door.

I first met Dr Shively at urgent care where he treated me for Shingles. His staff called me back to see how I was doing something my former family doc had never done. At my first appt I was seen at exactly 3:00 and spent the next hour with Dr Shively. Dr Shively is down to earth and doesn't have a "God" attitude. Everyone I've referred to him is really pleased to be his patient.

I have seen Dr Shively for at least 25 years. He has taken excellent care of me and has provided some life-saving tests that have detected problems that could be fatal if not found in time. His staff is friendly and his team is well-qualified and very professional. He is a clear thinker who puts his patient's well-being bove all else.

My Husband and I have been seeing Dr Shively, occasionally Dr Zaid and Wolocko as well, for the last 2 years. Dr Shively's approach to your health and well being is more about treating you as a whole, and not just your symptom. Although the wait may be lengthy at times, he definitely spends individual time needed with his pt's. He is caring, approachable and sincerely listens to our concerns. I work AT a medical office & understand how busy the front desk can be, but Alisha & Kathy are awesome!

This doctor and his staff are terrible. Unwilling to provide refills for meds prescribed by a former primary care doctor after care was transferred to him. Staff bad-mouth one another to the patients, a horribly unprofessional image to display. Wait times are excessively long, both in the waiting room and in the exam room. The doctor fails to follow-up with patients regarding test results, needed meds, or even provide refills for meds he prescribed. Waste of time, unreasonable, unprofessional!
