We could not have asked for better care then my husband received from Dr. Shumate. He never rushed the appointment and gave us excellent counsel & care over many years. He is a wonderful physician.

patient care

First couple visits were great. After a couple more visits I got no direct Diagnosis to what my problem really was. Tests after test done, but still nothing. The staff don't return none of my calls at all. After getting no where here, I felt it was time to make a change. Thankful I did before things got worse with my health.
