Dr. Shindy spends the time listening to you and answering any questions

Dr Shindy is the rare doctor who truly listens to you. He knows his medicine but not intimidated by your questions and desire for more information. He will take time to explain diagnosis and threatment. Even simple questions about colon prep he will take time to answer. Both my husband and I will travel from New Mexico to see Dr. Shindy.

I was a long time patient of Dr. Shindy. He was always very caring and was on top of what I needed. While it was hard to get appointments at times, he was accommodating when I had an urgent issue.
in Los Angeles, CA |
Dr showed up 20 mins late. If I'm late to my colonoscopy, he cancels me and makes me wait. I was told by the nurse that I would get to watch the procedure under a lighter sedation. Dr. walked in, shook my hand, did small talk while he rudely continued his cell phone viewing. Basically, he didn't care what I was saying. I was given the sedation and I woke up in the waiting room -- no viewing/no conversation about such with Dr. I had a few things show up on the report. ZERO communication.
