Patient Reviews
Oct 03, 2020
Dr. Shinaman is great! He has really helped me manage pain I've dealt with for several years after damage from cancer treatments. He listens and offers real options...not drugs just to mask issues. I would not hesitate to seek his help for pain management and reduction. And Lauren, on his staff, is a gem!
