Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. John and his staff are the best! Love these guys.
It was a relief to have a specific diagnosis of why I was having pain while wearing heels and a plan for how to treat the problem. I highly recommend Dr. John for his expertise in podiatry and for his willlingness to answer questions and talk about treatment alternatives.
Dr. John did a very good job of explaining my condition, discussing my options and took time to answer my questions.
If you're looking for extremely kind office staff and nurses, and a doctor with excellent bedside manner this is the place. Although my treatment plan was outside of the scope of his practice, Dr. John made certain to set me up with referrals to and appointments with the right people to help with my issue. I highly recommend Austin Foot & Ankle Specialists and Dr. Shine John.
Great examination of dislocated ankle! Great staff and friendly environment.
This is a great place to get foot care. The office is clean. The staff is friendly and kind. Dr. Shine answered all of my questions and helped me with my foot pain. I highly recommend going here if you need a foot specialist.
Good guy...even for a New Yorker...??
Professional, thourough, gentle, and proactive. I highly recommend Dr. Shine to my fellow Austinites.
i liked Dr. John a lot. I felt very comfortable with him. He was genuine, honest and gave me options about how to go forward to fix my foot problem.
I always felt heard during my appointments with Dr. Shine and felt confident in his skills. The atmosphere is pleasant and the staff is friendly.
Friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend.
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 a breeze. 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 feel so 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.
very informative, professional, and took time answering all my questions, and made the in- office procedure painless. will highly recommend!
Dr. Shine was very kind and professional. He made me feel very comfortable during my appointment. His staff was very kind and the wait was very short. I would definitely recommend!
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 do to 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.
Very knowledgeable and compassionate. Took the time to listen to my problems, and seems very dedicated to helping me resolve them.
He is very thorough and listened to all I had to say. He wanted to find the root cause of my issues. He found what two other doctors haven't and showed me the Xray. Finally I have path that can lead to healing.
Very nice doctor, probably one of the most sincere and open to explain your condition, very kind also.
Great office and doctor. Was seen promptly- everyone nice and professional. Would definitely recommend them to friends and family.
Very informative. Sense of humor.
Everyone at the office was very kind and helpful. Great sense of humor all around. Felt very comfortable even though I had to get stuck to numb things up. Dr Shine John was very detailed with everything that he explained as well as any questions I asked. Best experience I have had in years
Dr. John spent spent extra time with me to discuss and treat my condition. His medical expertise and up-to-date scientific knowledge was evident. His staff was also helpful and friendly.
I really did like Dr. John - he was very friendly and easy to talk too. I liked his assistant and staff also
Great bedside manner and did not rush me!
Fantastic experience and very patient with explanations and care.
Really nice doctor and staff. I had all my questions answered. Very professional and thorough.
I was impressed by his Office Staff who gave me the info for my insurance coverage and explained very clearly, what my options for treatment would be.
It was fine.
Everyone is friendly & polite. A great customer/patient approach. Dr Shine has great bed side manners. He take the time to explain the problem and provides a few options as remedies. You do not feel rushed or pressured in any way. Came in the office with pain and left without any. Thank you Dr Shine!
I was quite impressed with Dr Shine as well as the other employees in his office. He took time to explain my options to me and was very thorough. I have confidence that Dr Shine will be able to help me!
Knowledgable and direct. I appreciated the information that Dr Shine provided me with.
Everyone I encountered - Front desk, medical assistant, x-ray technician and Dr. John - were friendly, professional and knew what they were doing. Dr. John and his medical assistant spent a lot of time with me - I never felt that his mind was out the door ready to see the next patient.
Friendly and his advice on how to fix my problem was easy to understand.
He was very rushed to get me out of the office. Didn't help me with my feet issues, tried to blame me for the pain I was feeling. No help at all. Will not go back
Great experience, recommended for sure!
Good experience. Listens and guides you through treatment options.
I thought he was delightful! Not only was he thorough and professional, he has a very pleasant personality. I am really happy to be working with him and I will definitely refer other people to him.
ha to cancel my appointment but have been to him before and he was very goof....
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. I filled 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.
Overall great experience, very thorough consultation and very friendly staff. I would definitely recommend Dr. John and his office.
Great experience overall! I felt like Dr. John and his assistant really listened to me and they were very knowledgeable. I highly recommend him!
Dr. John was very knowledgeable and professional. I checked in and was seen immediately. He and his staff approached my issue as if they were seeing it for the first time without another doctor's opinion (which I previously had from Airrosti). It was good to get a clean read of my issue, and get a diagnosis with a clear set of next steps. I gave him a "Probably" recommendation because I want to make sure the treatment he has me on improves my condition, before I make a "Highly Recommended" recommendation, but so far, I've had a great experience with him and his office, and would recommend them for this initial phase of my treatment.
I thought Dr. John was very kind and experienced. Also medical assistant, Ezra, on his staff was friendly, communicated clearly and worked quickly. I was in and out for my first appointment (including x-rays of my foot) in about 1 hour which was great for me. He also talked with me about behavior/care changes and a little foot education. He made sure to give me time to ask questions and all of them were answered. Scheduled a 3 week follow-up. The only thing is that the parking lot is a bit hilly with stairs or different paving depending on which way you walk to the door. I think if I was on crutches or in more pain, that would've been a challenge.
Dr.Shine knows his specialty well; hard to understand though a wait time of 55 minutes for a consultation that was under two minutes. I 'd informed a staff member I was leaving when he received word of this and finally appeared.
All my concerns were addressed in a very timely yet thorough manner. Very impressed!
The entire office staff was friendly and knowledgeable. This was honestly one of the most pleasant doc experiences I have ever had.
By the time I saw Dr. John, my initial symptoms had resided, so it was difficult to make a diagnosis. However, he reassured me that if the issue occurs again, I could call and get an appointment pretty quickly. It felt reassuring to hear that Dr. John was very interested in getting to the root of the issue.
Everyone was friendly and caring!
Very good doctor. He spent time with me to understand what the problem is, and found the root cause. Highly recommended.
Very clean, organized and professional setting. Highly recommended.
Utter professional. Dr. John provided my options for me very clearly, and he was willing and able to answer all questions I had.
He was very thorough and the staff very friendly.
He spent plenty of time with me to be sure I understood the problem and how to fix it.
Very professional, knowledgeable, personable, conservative and natural until necessary for invasive procedure. I loved that he didn't start with surgery recommendation as the two previous podiatrists I saw! Would highly recommend.
Everyone at his office are very nice the staff were knowledgeable .Would recommend to anyone.
I was a little late to my appointment so it was understandable to wait a few minutes but still got seen at a decent time. entire staff was professional & very helpful. highly recommend ..
Professional staff, great facility, really cares
Very professional, informative, and knowledgable. I'd feel very confident recommending Shine John.
Dr. John was so helpful and nice as were all his team members.
Wait was a little longer than I would have liked but the doctor is excellent and well educated.
Dr. John was wonderful! Extremely efficient and helpful.
I went to Dr. John for a second opinion on a recommended surgery to my right foot. I really appreciated his thorough explanation of what is going on with my foot and the physiological explanation of why I experience pain. I also appreciated his conservative approach when it comes to considering surgery and I felt like he and I were on the same page in regards to the treatment of my condition. He was easy to talk to, open and honest, and left me feeling more confident with the knowledge he provided.
very professional and courteous provided the answers I needed and felt the staff was very nice and concerned about my well being
The doctor n staff was great and friendly. He was able to explain what was going on with my heel. Also gave different steps on what to do on getting the problem fix or steps to get it there just n time. Great all the way around.
Dr Shine and his entire staff are knowledgeable, thorough and professional. I always understand exactly what they are doing and why. I would definitely recommend Dr Shine for all your foot care needs.
Very professional-knowledgeable. I was apprehensive as I hate my feet touched but he was understanding and reassuring to the point that I trusted him to do the minor procedure which took care if my problem.
Doctor Shine John is very friendly and caring. His entire staff is the same. The staff took great care of my feet and they are friendly without staring at their watches all of the time. We will be returning soon.
Dr. Shine John greeted me with a warm smile and cheery disposition. He listened to my issues with focus and asked relevant questions. The treatment program he suggested was explained in depth and he was very direct. Later I researched the treatment online and found it was cutting edge and highly current and relevant as well as safe. I was shocked that he was on the forefront of medical practice. My daughter referred him and I realize she gave me an excellent choice!
Dr. John was helpful, friendly, and informative - I had a great visit and would highly recommend.
Everyone in the office is very friendly and professional. I felt welcome right away. I am a runner and didn't want to further injure myself. The podiatric medical assistant, Byron, was very thorough so my exam with Dr. Shine was quick and I got the answers I needed.
The whole team was so friendly and answered every question I could think of
I thought the staff and Dr. were excellent. They were so nice and caring and Dr. John was so sweet as to worry about my level of discomfort. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Wonderful, everyone was so kind and professional!
