Dr. Shumate is always caring, attentive and wonderful. He takes the time to listen to my concerns and takes my odd sense of humor in stride. He always explains issues and answers questions thoroughly and makes sure I understand everything before the appointment is over. I cannot praise him enough for all he does.

Dr. Shumate demonstrates genuine concern for my healthcare needs, he researches my medications, advises on side effects and also provides education regarding my diagnosis. He has been with me through major health challenges over the years and I am so appreciative of him and his team. I have rrecently moved away and hope to find an amazing physician like Dr. Shumate!

Dr. Shumate and his staff are exceptional, both professionally and personally. I have not, in my life, received the quality of care from any other doctor or staff. Dr. Shumate has a way of making you feel that you have unlimited time with him. He does not rush you and is not one of these in-and-out in 5 mintues doctors.
