I was very impressed with the Dr. Shine and his staff. There were a number of staff to welcome me, and anxious to help. First time patient, I filled out my forms before I got there, so check in was abreeze. Help out the staff and fill out those forms before you go! Dr. Shine's assistant Mary helped me out. She immediately made me feel like I was in the right place, very professional, yet made me feel at ease. My consult with Dr. Shine was fantastic, he obviously knows his stuff. After his examination, he promtly delivered his diagnosis and treatment plan, which can't be easy, as I now have a long term date with a boot. So go see Dr. Shine and his staff, you'll be pleased!

I've already recommended Dr. John to 2 coworkers. He and his staff were patient, knowledgeable, and kind. Dr. John explained some options to me and I took the undeniably scarier (and more painful up front) route because he made me feelso comfortable and didn't pressure me at all. I felt like he genuinely cared to make me better, and that's unfortunately somewhat rare in my experience with medical professionals.

Dr. Shine is very professional and a very good foot specialist. He came in the room and introduced himself, asked several questions about the pain in my feet, examined my feet, and then gave me some suggestions for what to doto help with my pain. He also explained what was going on with my feet and why I had pain. I liked that he gave explained everything to me and answered any questions that I had.

I was very happy with the information he shared and his explanation of my options. I also liked the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. My only disappointment was the wait time. I arrived 15 minutes early as was recommended. Ifilled in the forms they gave me even though some of the questions were ones I had already answered online. I was taken into the exam room right on time, but had to sit there for 25 minutes before anyone came in.
