Altogether, given my condition, on which I needed more information, this was a very good experience. I'd rather know what was going on than having a care provider cover up anything. I got from Dr. Shuhart the information that my bones need to be strengthened if my surgery or what have you can be successful.

This was a unique experience with an intensely interested and informed provider. He's rare. He knows everything about bone health and now because of this one visit, I know more than I thought I needed to, also. He takes you seriously as a patient. I've recommended him to everyone I know. He's cool, too.

It was a real loss for patients when this MD gave up his primary care practice to take up work that almost anyone can do. It requires little interpersonal skill & he has so much to give.

Dr. Shuhart is a great doctor and spent a lot of time with me this visit. Dr. Shuhart is a total number's guy/statistician so sometimes he goes over my head with statistical analysis and percentages. Since I'm a words and languages person, this can be a tad overwhelming at times but all in all, I hope I never have to find another doctor for my osteoporosis. Dr. Shuhart is a ROCK STAR!

No follow-up phone call from this exam after I called asking what is to happen now that insurance won't cover medication because doctor failed to include pertinent information on questionnaire.

Doctor did not talk about meds or future treatment. I was very worried. He was in a hurry. He talked briefly about future. He did not talk about meds or future. Just told me I was in trouble with my bones. I should not of had ovaries removed, etc. I had a large tumor that needed to be removed due to worry of possible cancer. My mom and grandmothers, aunts, cousins, nieces had ovarian, breast, cervical cancer. He made me feel responsible for doing surgery, etc.

There was a problem with the faxing of orders to my PCP, not sure whose end the problem was at but it took many emails to Dr Shuhart to get resolved. Seems to be a continuing issue now with getting the results of tests to Dr Shuhart - again not sure which provider is having the faxing issue. It has been close to a month of trying to get faxing of orders done/testing complete/results reviewed in order to get on appropriate medicine, still waiting....
