Dr. Shumate never makes you feel like he is rushing you, and his pleasant demeanor makes you instantly comfortable. He listens and follows through with follow up tests, medications, etc. He gets test results to you immediately and the coordination of care, through the portal and in person, is something I have never experienced with a medical group. It is so nice that you don't have to make numerous follow-up calls to find out what is going on, or to get answers to questions, as is typical with many medical facilities. Dr. Shumate is great!
