I really appreciate two things in particular about Dr. Shumate and his team. The first is that I never feel rushed there. I feel like I am given plenty of time to talk about my issue, and the visits are never hurried along. This is made even more impressive by the short wait times there. The second thing I appreciate is the fact that I feel everyone there is listening to me. They seem genuinely interested in my concerns, You can\'t ask for more than that.
