Verified Patient Reviews
My husband just saw Dr. Shock and I am so thrilled! My husband was told by another Doctor "Oh this is genetic, you'll just have to deal with the pain." Needless to say we were less than impressed with that diagnosis. However, Dr. Shock was the exact opposite. He took the time to explain my husband's diagnosis, discuss options, and he even took time to look through our insurance and let us know our options along with pricing. We were happy to do whatever we needed to get my husband better, but I am glad that he was considerate enough to take a financial situation into account. Overall I would highly recommend Dr. Shock to anyone in need of a foot checkup.
I took my active 12 yr old son to see Dr. Shock for chronic heel pain. Dr Shock provided two avenues for treatment and even addressed potential financial burdens due to insurance limitations/coverage. I appreciated that awareness, which was a compliment to his educational presentation of the problem and prognosis based on his extensive experience in treating athletes.
I liked his approach to the problem. He got to the point and gave me options.
Dr. Shock was very professional and also very thorough. I went to him for a 2nd opinion and was very pleased to have found a great doctor.
Dr Shock saw us immediately and took care of our ingrown toenail problem within minutes. He has a great, funny bedside manner and made the numbing shot practically painless. We are so glad we drove to see Dr Shock.
Dr. Shock had already read my note I submitted online when I made the appointment, and was ready to discuss the issue when I showed up. He clearly communicated the options for treatment with me, and explained his recommendation. I've seen him a couple of times now, and greatly appreciate his preparation and his treatment of my injury (which is now all better)!
Motivated to find a way to eliminate the problem. Willing to do what it takes to make sure all possible treatments are understood and risk/benifits of all.
Dr. Ryan Shock gave me a good experience. Went in because of an old sports injury. He was very knowledgeable and gentle with checking to find the bad area. It was a pleasure to listen to him explain the details so I could understand. Being that he is down to earth with a good sense of humor. I will definitely recommend him to anyone that needs their feet looked over and evaluated.
Very friendly and was very informative. My feet felt better before I left!
very good,professional,caring and sincere !
Dr. Shock is the best foot doctor in Austin.
He knows his stuff. I like him- he gets straight down to business!
He listened thoughtfully to my description of my running injury. Then, his comments about treatment were tailored precisely to my condition. He began treatment immediately. Gave me specific instruction on things to do at home, and left me some awesome shoe inserts that I wore the rest of the day without any pain at all. Yay!
Dr. Shock was quick to find the problem and helped me get back to running that day.
