Dr. Shindel attributes an interest in science and research with his decision to pursue medicine.  He also enjoys helping people.  “Having had several family members with colon cancer, I became committed to making a difference,” says Dr. Shindel, who’s gratified to see fewer patients developing the disease.  In practice for 30 years, he’s performed 50,000 colonoscopies and calls gastroenterology a unique blend of one-on-one patient time, high-tech endoscopic procedures and treatments.

Prior to his role with PIH Health, Dr. Shindel was the Director of the Colon Cancer Prevention Alliance in Whittier that began in 1991. Dr. Shindel and his wife celebrated 25 years of marriage by climbing California’s Mt. Whitney and cycling 121 miles to Badwater, Death Valley, reaching the highest and lowest points in the contiguous United States in 24 hours.

November 18, 2021
Very nice staff
November 16, 2021
He explained what I have coming procedure. Did not seem rushed during our consultation. I felt comfortable with our conversation when I left. But definitely for friends and family to see him
November 16, 2021
Dr. Shindel has always been attentive, professional, timely, great listener and empathetic, investigative and knowledgeable! My experience with the surgery center was incredible! All staff was crime the front desk Or stupendous. I highly recommend all of them
November 16, 2021
Waiting time is extremely long and it is hard to schedule an appt for check up
November 12, 2021
Dr. Shindel was very professional. He was got me in ahead of schedule, and I didn't take any medication. They didn't knock me out. So I was a little bit disappointed, that I couldn't leave so quickly. I really wanted to leave, but they kept insisting no that I had to stay until my, my ride was downstairs. And that was a little inconvenient. But other than that his, his procedure, and everything else went very well. It was very good, and it was very professional. And I would definitely recommend anyone, that has insurance that we see you. Those that don't have it. I don't know that they would go that I can go to that. Your office is however, I would I would definitely tell them it was a good experience. Thank you.
November 12, 2021
Everyone was great!
November 11, 2021
I've known Dr. Shindel for a few years and he is excellent. And I would recommend him to my family. And he's very professional. Thank you.
November 11, 2021
Everybody was very kind helpful nice and understanding thank you all very much for what you do it was a very well organized procedure
November 10, 2021
He is a really a nice doctor. That's a second time I see him and I look forward to seeing him again. Thank you.
November 10, 2021
This was my first colonoscopy, and I had some concerns. Everything went so well , I had the best nap ?? and before you know it it was all over. Great experience!!
November 08, 2021
We waited 2 hours despite having an appointment. Our appointment was at 3:30. We were taken back at 4:44. We didn't see the physician for another...I'd say about 45 minutes after that to an hour. So total weight time, we spent waiting for the physician is about 2 hours. Now granted, this is our first visit, was a consult visit so he did take his time to spend a lot of time explaining things and asking questions getting to know us, but the initial waiting time,that's way too long, especially when we have an appointment and this office also charges patients for missed visits. Am I going to get to charge the patient for my lost time? I don't, I mean, charge the physician? I can't, right? So I think that the time should be respected, if I have an appointment time at 3:30, I shouldn't have to wait 2 hours. I think 30 minutes is reasonable for waiting time, but 2 hours is just too much.
November 08, 2021
Dr had his team all in place very together. Waiting lobby area all very pleasant. Preparation area and recovery area also. Over all a very together atmosphere.

The staff within the GI Lab were very warm and professional. Prior to the procedure, both in admitting me into the unit, and while in the procedure room the staff were friendly and helpful, putting me at complete ease. Every person I met was caring and knowledgeable. Although I was not excited about the procedure the staff was wonderful.
November 02, 2021

November 01, 2021

My experience with my colonoscopy went perfectly. I got a good report. everything was carefully, explain to me ahead of time and also at the time in the morning, just before the surgery, there was great consideration with the covid virus situation. To be very, very careful regarding the germ situation once I enter the building, everyone was highly informed as to what was going to be expected that I would expect and carefully explains. Very cautious. Everyone was very professional and it could not have been a better experience. So thanks be to Dr. Shindel and, and staff.

October 05, 2021
This procedure went very easily for me this time around. My Colonoscopy & Endoscopy 3 years ago scared me a little. I was much more relaxed this time around since all I needed was the colonoscopy. I want to Thank DR. Shindel and his staff for the excellent care I received.
October 04, 2021
This was my first time having this procedure and I have to say that it was a pleasant experience! Doctor and staff were very professional and courteous!
October 04, 2021
I arrived at 8:40 am as scheduled. My procedure time was supposed to be at 10:40 am. After my own 2 follow ups they called me in at 10:55 am to prepare me for the procedure.

Excellent
September 30, 2021
Dr. Shindel took the time to listen to my concerns and gave me valuable feedback . He was kind , courteous, and patient during my visit. I would highly recommend him to others
September 27, 2021
This doctor and his office is always excellent.
September 27, 2021
Yeah thank you seems like the the prep medication still need some better instructions and clarifications an extension on on some of the food items they can and can't have it. It seems like certain parts of the instructions repeated itself when I didn't need to and it was kind of just junked otherwise most of it went really well.
September 27, 2021
I have received medical care from Dr. Neal Shindel about at least 3 times. I trust him as a doctor and like him as a person. That's why I asked for him this time.
September 27, 2021
Other than having to prep for the procedure, everything went well and Dr. Shindel's staff was caring and professional. It's the 2nd time I've seen him and will continue to see him.
September 27, 2021
I just thought that any of the people that were helping with the procedure or just a paperwork. I have thought they were all fantastic and they were just great each, and every one of them there and I thank them so much.
September 24, 2021
I would have liked to have spoken with the physician after my procedure for him to explain what happened because the nurse explained to me that I did have a polyps, but the doctor wasn't able to find it somehow, although it showed up on my picture and they didn't allow me to schedule an appointment, just follow up to see him afterwards. The nurse explained I had a torturous colon, but I've never been told that before and so I wanted to know why they weren't able to totally take out the polyp and why I have to come back in three more years. I felt like it was just a big factory that the doctor had 25 patients and he didn't have time to spend to barely do the full colonoscopy and take out the polyp. And so that's why I'm not very satisfied with my care.
September 24, 2021
They made me feel comfortable
September 24, 2021
The procedure was good The postoperative is terrible I called the hospital in pm The post op pain not explained and not expected. I didn't know if it was normal.
September 23, 2021
Dr. Shindel ask us to make an appointment for an MRI, but we are never given the number of who to call to make an MRI appointment.
September 23, 2021
All matters we handled with professionalism.
September 22, 2021
I was treated extremely well by everyone. Great experience
September 21, 2021
everything was good.
September 21, 2021
I think it is ridiculous that I arrived 15mins early to my appointment and still waited over 1hr to be seen. Yet the 1 time I was running late they allowed me 15mins to arrive if not I would of been charged for a missed appointment and then rescheduled. The time Managment of your scheduling staff is the worse I have ever come across. Just as your time is valuable so is mine. Every time I go to this office I am forced to wait a minimum of 45mins for the Dr to see me. Not sure if I will be back.
September 20, 2021
Everything was very professional and the people were all nice and professional
September 17, 2021
Thank you for taking good care of me from beginning to end. That means all the staff.
September 15, 2021
Great experience having a colonoscopy! Staff were great, treated me well, and very efficient in getting me in and out quickly.

very caring staff
September 03, 2021
Punctual and cares about his patience explains in detail
September 03, 2021
All the staff treaty me very professionally.
September 02, 2021
Front office staff un professional. Most patients walking in the office from the elevator missed the sign with COVID safety instructions. Although you have to walk right by the desk with the sanitizer and masks, sometimes going into a new environment for the first time is confusing in itself. What's not right is the manner in which the one female whos desk was in the middle would talk the patients. Not very nice and de meaning. She even made a joke about how a guy was so confused she didn't think he even knew where he was . I sat in that waiting room for more than 45 minutes and heard more than I cared to hear..
September 01, 2021
What a wonderful experience.
August 31, 2021
All staff very nice and courtesy's to people.
August 26, 2021
All the staff members were so kind and caring. They helped me to relaxed and not be so anxious. The procedure smoothly.
August 26, 2021
excellent staff assisting the dr. very friendly and helpful
August 26, 2021
They were all so nice!
August 26, 2021
My only problem was my wait time was long. I arrived to the office at 5:35 PM. My appointment was at 5:45PM. I didn't see the physician until 7:15 PM. Dr. Shindel apologized for the wait and said it was due to computer issues.
August 26, 2021
Everyone was kind and patient with me. Doctor apologized for the delay and did not rush me during our meeting. He inquired about me and showed concern for my wellbeing.
August 25, 2021
The visit went very well -- the nurses, doctors and medical assistants were very nice, professional and polite. Only the receptionist (or whatever her title is -the one who checks you in and has you fill-out the forms) seemed a little bit impolite. Specifically, she told my girlfriend (who was my driver) she had to leave the doctor's office because of the Covid-19 restrictions in somewhat impolite manner -- she could have been nicer about it ! But she probably deals with a lot of impatient and demanding patients on a daily-basis, so I am willing to give her a pass. Anyway, we should have been told over the phone that my girlfriend was not going to be able to wait for me in the office, instead of waiting until we got there and then basically throwing her out by demanding that she leave! My girlfriend and I are both fully vaccinated, always wear our masks and sanitize our hands often, and we understand and are more-than-willing to comply with the restrictions, we just want to be treated with politeness and respect.
August 25, 2021
All was very positive.
August 25, 2021
Care was excellent , staff very nice
August 17, 2021
I woke up in a recovery area after my procedure. While one nurse was supposed to be overseeing my care, she became embroiled in a dispute with another staff person. Their verbal exchange was a distraction to my care - and I was totally overlooked as the two women bickered. VERY unprofessional!
August 17, 2021
During my time in Dr. Shindel's outpatient surgery unit, I received the BEST care possible. From the person who admitted me to the young man who wheeled me out to the parking lot, all were caring and professional. The nursing & other medical staff who were responsible for me before and after my procedure made me feel like I was their only patient.
August 16, 2021
Hi appreciated the hospitality, the professionalism, and friendliness of Dr. Shindel's staff. They were helpful, knowledgeable, and made my... and made me and my wife very comfortable. Thank you.
August 16, 2021
Everyone was friendly, very professional, and explained all that was about to happen in understandable language. The only complaint is that EVERY TIME I had to place a call to the GI office to make a requested call back or to schedule a required appointment the message received was that the office was currently closed and the exchange service came on the line. It did not matter the time of day this occurred. Very frustrating when multiple calls throughout the day had to be made before reaching the GI appointment schedulers.
August 13, 2021
This whole process of prepping and coming in was outstanding. I had several contact calls, precise information on how to prep for procedure before my appointment and outstanding front, anesthesiologist, Dr, and back nursing assistance on the day of!!! Today I feel great!!
August 13, 2021
I had a great experience. I felt like everyone from the finance person to the doctor had my best interest in mind and a can do attitude.
August 13, 2021
Staff were great. Professional all the way. Not a single issue to worry about. They treated me well and made me feel comfortable. I love coming to PIH. All my children were born here.
August 12, 2021
Dr. Neal Shindel is excellent. He does a great job explaining, he's done a great job on work. I mean, my only concern about making appointments with him is not him. Is just the wait time. I always have to put away like 3 hours of my time, just to go see him, which I don't think that's a reasonable amount of time. I think it's too much to wait in the lobby for an hour and then going to the room and wait another hour. And this happens every time I see Dr. Neal Shindel, sometimes I asked for other nurse practitioners just to make them wait a little shorter. But other than that, he's great. Sometimes I don't even mind the wait, you know, because he's such a good doctor, but that's my only concern, you know.
August 12, 2021
Kind, and respectful employees.
August 12, 2021
Excellent care by the nurses and staff.
August 12, 2021
Length of wait was expected with a busy patient load and the doctor taking the necessary time to be sure each of us got the attention we needed to get questions answered and plans formed. After all, patience is a virtue.
August 11, 2021
I think Dr. Shindel is awesome. He totally knows what he's doing. The only thing I wish is that he would maybe come out and talk to you after the procedure instead of just giving you a piece of paper. But other than that, he's extremely well qualified and I wouldn't go to anybody else. That's it. Thank you.
August 11, 2021
While in the recovery room, I was awakened by a nurse and the nurse immediately started offering something to drink, which I appreciated, but also started giving me information on the procedure and what they found, things of that nature and I think that was too soon to be bombarded with information while I was still groggy. Seemed rushed and once she did her spiel, she pretty much walked away. So I really wasn't in the mindset to be able to accept and understand all the information she was giving me once I had just woken up from the procedure
July 27, 2021
Thank you for asking me how I feel about my visit we seniors are not always heard.
July 27, 2021
The only problem I had was installing the iv / in general a hate needles. it took the nurses 3 to 4 time before they were able to install it. and it hurt.
July 23, 2021
Thank you for a great and caring staff. Made me feel comfortable and no worries. Keep up the good work.
July 23, 2021
I was in the GI clinic. Everyone from the front office, prep, procedure to recovery were very friendly, helpful, caring and courteous. The entire staff made the whole process very pleasant!
July 22, 2021
Everyone was very courteous. I did have a good experience. I would say that all instructions sent to me were very good, but you need to tell us what we need to bring with us when checking in. Such as identification, insurance cards, etc.
July 22, 2021
Thank you
July 22, 2021
nice and friendly simple
July 22, 2021

Thanks to Dr. Shindel for catching several polyps at at I'm at least two occasions that would have been cancerous and that has save my life. And I am most grateful to him. We will see what the biopsy show of this new set of polyps ups. Thank you very much.
June 21, 2021
I just can't understand having to pay $3 to park to see a doctor. It, it should be validated it somehow work it off of there with the taxes for the file, their taxes or something. Even the hospital, I can't see paying park to go visit somebody, so that's it.
June 21, 2021
Dr Neal Shindel was excellent and respectful he was patient and answered all my questions
June 18, 2021

The gastroenterology center is a well organized and efficient unit. The staff was noticeably friendly and respectful to each other as well as to the patients. The precautions for protecting the facility and patients from covid 19 was evident from the check-in to the check-out. I felt I was in good hands.

Very professional and friendly office. I was watching the interactions between staff and patients, very warm and respectful. I felt very at ease in the office and was particularly impressed how Dr Shindel took the time to explain my problem to me, really made me feel that I was in good hands.

The nurse staff inside was great and Dr. Shindel was very nice. And... and I was very calm and very nice to talk to. But the staff when you got there, when you walked into the office, they were kind of cold. It was... I was the only person in there. I think there was one other person and walking up to the desk, they told me go behind the line and follow the directions. I mean, just I don't like the way they spoke with me, and I was trying to, you know, kind of do a joke around with them a little bit. When, young woman asked me, you have an appointment for a colonoscopy today and I said, well, I hope so or I think I came for nothing. But you don't know how many people come in here for the wrong office. It was just kind of rude so I.... I didn't like that at all. But the doctor was great and the nurse was great.

I brought my elderly mother to see Dr. Shindel as a new patient. He listened and asked her questions to learn about her conditions and proceed with a plan. He is very thorough and spent a good amount of time of time with her.

My colonoscopy went well. The office staff were courteous and efficient. The nurses pleasant. The surgery center was lots better than being in the hospital. My experience was a good one.

The staff was courteous and empathetic. I was able to schedule a procedure to fit my schedule with no problems. The doctor listened to my narrative and was able to offer information regarding symptoms that were related in my narrative.

I had a very excellent visit Dr. Shindel. And he answered all my questions and clear, the lot of anxiety that I had about my questions. And... and I did not feel rushed. And I felt, I feel extremely grateful after my appointment to its courteous and its willing to explain things again and in detail. And I appreciate that very much. He's.. he's a keeper. Thank you very much.

Colonoscopies are never easy, but Dr. Shindel is the BEST! Always thorough, always caring! The staff were very friendly and took a great care of me.

Hi the doctor was exceptionally good kind. He's highly reputable. So I trusted him 100%. The only disappointment, I had with it. I thought I would be able to talk to him a little bit before the surgery and I didn't actually meet him until a few minutes before the procedure and a few minutes before I was out. Think they were running a little bit behind schedule. I was scheduled for 8:28 and I think they started it. Maybe 8:35, not too bad at all. I just would have like to just get to know him. I thought I might see him before the procedure. Thank you.

While waiting for a procedure, as the room was very cold, it would be advisable for patients to be provided with socks. After the procedure the patient should be given enough time to find her/his balance,before being asked to get dressed.

Md was very thorough and explained everything

Colonoscopy is not a fun procedure, but they made as best as possible, MISSION COMPLETE.

It was great.
April 23, 2021
The service was outstanding from beginning to end, the care was probably the best I've ever had. The people are very kind courteous and understanding and I felt 100% confident of the procedure that I was going to be participating in. So I have nothing but great things to say from the receptionist, to the nurses, to the doctor's to the people that the people that helped me outside. It was just exemplary in every way possible.

felt safe in their hands.

When I was coming out of the antithesia (sp) I felt rushed to get dressed. The attendant threw my hoodie (jacket) in with the linen.
April 21, 2021
everyone was extremely respectful, kind and helpful.
April 21, 2021
I'm a little disappointed with the service because I was unable to speak with the doctor or ask any questions and after my procedure, I was handed my results by a nurse and it stated that everything was okay except at the end of the esophagus, I had a small gap that seems to be very common. The procedure was going to expand my esophagus and this would solve my problem, but it hasn't. Now I feel as if though I need to schedule another appointment to resolve the situation and receive answers to the questions I've had since the day I went in. Thank you.

A very efficient and friendly staff, nurses, and doctors. I just wish there was something better tasting than the Colonoscopy prep drink. "Gag me with a spoon!"

Great Doctor, Great Staff and very comfortable office. Dr. Shindel seems like a great doctor. He spent a lot of time with me and took a lot of time to explain himself. Unfortunately, he focused so much on what he wanted to say, that it was definitely a one sided "conversation". I wasn't able to get in a word until the end when he finally stopped talking and asked me if I had any questions. I felt like I was in a college class. I learned a lot, but it was not interactive.
