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!

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.
