Ashley the woman who answers the phone and makes appointment is very rude. I have had a few people who also said that she was very rude to them .if it wasn’t for the Recommendations from friends at Dr. Shuman was very good and professional felt very comfortable with him. I would use another doctor just because of my experiences with Ashley

Completely inaccurate

After doing very little imaging or in office physical exam, this doctor performed a surgery for several kidney stones. Upon waking up from anesthesia, I was told they were "gone". When still in pain, my primary then did imaging, to find they were not gone. Very fishy. I won't be back...
