I absolutely ADORE Dr. Shumate!!! He\'s taken care of me and my family for 15+ years, and I can\'t imagine not having him to go to when needed. His entire team is welcoming and friendly...it\'s like being with family when I visit. The new building is exceptional!!! You don\'t get the feeling of being in a "clinic" or "hospital" setting...again, the overall atmosphere is very welcoming. This really matters when people are not at their best, and likely nervous. Thank you, and especially Dr. Shumate and team for all your wonderful help!
