Extremely rude

In my opinion Dr Shode and his assistant are extremely rude individuals with 0 bed side maner. I will NEVER see him again for my stenosis. I wouldn't take my dog to see him.

I saw Dr.Shobe in the Late 1990's, I had many issues with my leg, hip and back. When I went to see him I was walking with a cane. I was only 28. Saw many doctors, He was a great listener to everything what I have been through with many other doctors. Listen to what was feeling what the most pain was. Very understanding. Didn't tell me to go do this and that an see him again in 6 weeks. My recovery after the surgery was great. It has now been over 20 years since my surgery never had an issue with my back. Thank you Dr.Shobe

Unprofessional and rude. Lacks compassion and basic human decency.

If you want real care!

Don't let the wait time deter you, it only confirms that this doctor actually spends time to know you and the best options for your back issues. In my case leg and buttocks pain along with back. Along with feeling the information I needed to provide to him,( so he could understand why my back looks like it does) was told in confidence, Very calm, patient doctor, I'm not the easiest patient to deal with, He passed my expectations. He didn't hand me a prescription and send me on a path that I see a lot of people with back issues end up on and call it care. The Orthopedics' Surgeons of Sartell also took care of my knee replacement ( Dr. Michael Murphy) highly recommended clinic!!!
