Doctor is very patient and explained my care very well.

I feel very comfortable with this doctor. More so than other doctors I have seen, thank you for having such a wonderful doctor. On your staff.

Dr. Shindel is really great. He's such a great listener. He's a great doctor. His staff not so good. There's a [name removed], who is... takes forever, wants her phone. It takes a long time to get through to the line and once she answers she's very rude. She seems board, but the doctor is awesome.

Front Office check in staff was extremely rude, especially [name removed], I forgot the name of the other, that was one of the worst experiences I had with medical staff, down right rude, unhelpful, unapologetic for mistake. These ladies are not the caliber of ethical employees that these wonderful Dr's need on their team. The back office staff and young lady that checked me out was great. Thank you for your time, I have never filled one of these out but I felt this was important enough to address.

Dr. Shindel was very professional. He paid attention to me and answered all my questions. Any question seemed to be incorrect. He patiently explained everything. He checked my health history before seeing me which I think it shows his professionalism and ethic.

The only thing I have to say is that after my procedure I don't get to see the doctor until a month. And I thought that was pretty long. I would like to see him sooner than that.

I had a lot of pain up for. I have my procedure and it was very hard to call and tell him what was going on. I thought I had an infection in my throat, which I don't think I had. I don't have but they take too long to answer the phone.
October 27, 2021
The only thing I didn't like is that I left the office with no info where to perform my labs. The lady who attended me did not give that info. When try to reach the office the waiting time was ridiculously 45min. Then after lunch the office was closed. Unable to reach a person to ask. I have to do my own research.

I've been dealing with this health issue for weeks now and Dr Shindel showed me so much compassion. I really appreciated that and unfortunately it's not that common with doctors to show true compassion. I have every confidence that we will figure this out

Yes, it was all very well. I would recommend the doctor and the staff to anyone.
