One of the reasons I chose Dr. Shore was because he had great reviews online. I had been searching for a good dermatologist for a while and I am over the moon to have found him and his staff! From the beginning to the end of the appointment and everything in between my medical care was excellent! The office staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I had an early appointment and was seen right away. Dr. Shore listened to my concerns/issues and addressed each one. He was very knowledgeable, took the time to explain everything and had a great bed side manner!! His office was easy to find. The parking was free and easy to access. I highly recommend him!!!

Dr. Shore was great. I cannot say the same for his medical assistant. He had a few issues with understanding my english when I was telling him my current medications even after I printed everything on my new patient forms. It felt redundant, and honestly lowered my trust level in the practice. However, I do want to be very clear when I say that Dr. Shore was fantastic.

I felt like he really did not address my problems in a satisfactory way. Not only that, but his bedside manner was odd and unsettling. I felt very out of place in his office as a younger person (he seems to primarily have an older clientele), and it did not seem to me that he took my problems seriously.

I found the staff to be extremely polite and helpful. The doctor saw me promptly after I had completed the necessary papers as a new patient. I appreciated that once he examined me and recognized that some minor surgery was required to complete a diagnosis it was efficiently done during the same visit.

Loved him! No nonsense and right to the point, and I felt he gave me more insight into my condition after 20 minutes than the specialist I had been seeing for two years. I would definitely see him again.

It was my first time and I had read all the reviews for Dr. Shore they were stellar. It was a tad difficult to find office seeing as it's actually inside elderly nursing home. I had to follow corridors until nice lady told me where to go. I had more cosmetology issues not medical so I ended up seeing a very polite, upbeat, bright woman named Kristen. She actually did the procedures right there and didn't make me make separate apt! I felt overall satisfied with the experience. The only exception was the front desk woman was bit abrupt and not friendly at all. I will be returning 2 ND apt but not in Silver Spring location, but the Rockville one.

Dr Shore's office is very old, outdated and did not feel welcoming from the start. The building itself seems like it's ready to fall down, front desk staff were unprofessional, loud and gossipy. Dr. Shore has an assistant who accompanies him in the exam room which makes for an extremely uncomfortable visit if you're self conscious about your issue. The dynamic of the room was very awkward and I did not particularly like his bedside manner. Dr bragged about the accomplishments of his practice but I just got the impression he was over overcompensating for all of the turn offs. I would not recommend.

dr. shore is a great guy. he's very hands-on and explains thoroughly. only thing i didn't like about his office was front office assistants. one of them was really rude. i had my insurance my card on my phone but she expected a physical card. she told me to fill out the form and as i was filling it out she hit the plastic thing that holds the paper form and told me to fill out a different form. my wife was there and event my wife commented that why the office assistant was being cranky.

I went to the silver spring office and one of the nurses that came in at first was rude rude rude! You can just tell she did not want to be there and she had this attitude with the doctor just very uncomfortable but as for Dr. Shore he was very very nice, I went in for patch on my skin and he looked at it for a while until he told me the diagnosis and gave me a topical to apply. He is amazing he tried to get to the bottom of what may have caused it, you can tell he genuinely cares about his patients and their problems. Will be coming back such an amazing doctor!!

Dr. Shore was excellent. He is very knowledgeable, thorough, and understanding. I had him look at three different skin problems, he took 3 biopsies and also removed something that was just an annoyance to me that I remembered at the last minute. Very happy I chose him. One note, I made my appointment through ZOCDOC and when I got there they weren't expecting me because they don't always check the system to update appointment info. So I recommend calling after you set up your appointment to confirm it. They still saw me and I didn't wait long either, that's how nice they were.
