I was in for med review and general wellness check, but also had sprained my ankle earlier in the week. he spent time checking my ankle , instructions how to care for the ankle, ALSO. reviewed my meds, refilled RX as needed. THEN I mentioned my husnand had smashed his finger that day, showed him a picture ( on my phone) of the finger. he asked me to call my husband to come to the office right then, he treated my husbands finger (/it was fractured)... all of this as the clinic was closing down for the evening. Dr Shumate is extremely caring, he is EXTEMELY smart, bright. we recommend hinm to everyone we know.

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.
