Avoid this Doctor
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael J Shinners - Posted on December 12th, 2017
I have never had a worse experience with a medical professional. Dr. Shinners was belligerent from the moment he walked in. He refused to discuss my symptoms or answer my questions. He made a snap diagnosis without looking at my medical records, notes from previous specialists, or performing any physical exam. Shockingly unprofessional. At one point, he aggressively leaned in so close while lecturing me that I had to ask him three times to back off. My after-visit form had information that directly contradicted specific statements he made during my visit. Avoid this doctor at all costs.
The Best Hands Down

I am so impressed with Dr. Shinners and his staff. Yvonne has gone above and beyond her duties to help me prepare for surgery with Dr. Shinners. Her customer service has been the Best experience I have ever had with any doctor office. Dr. Shinners was very polite, thorough explaining the surgery, the after effects, the things that may occur during or after surgery. I am more than grateful to Dr. Shinners, Yvonne, and the Northshore staff. I would recommend this office one thousand times.
Migraine associated vertigo!

Waste of my time seeing Michael Shinner! I had a resident talk with me about my issues. They spoke with out me in hall. I met him and he didn't ask me any questions and diagnosed me with migraine associated vertigo. I was told I had Menieres disease for an ent. Why I was sent to shinners. I seen several doctors and neurologist after and all said I have menieres disease. He told me I did not have that disease which he was wrong, didn't ask me questions, was pretty much a jerk who thought by looking at me he knew what I had. WRONG! Don't recommend him at all!
Dr. Shinners is great doctor & surgeon who delivers excellent results iwth compassion - True patenit advocate
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael J Shinners - Posted on May 24th, 2015
I highly recommend Dr. Shinners who is an outstanding and compassionate ENT doctor and surgeon. As a single mom with 2 young children, I woke up one day with sudden hearing loss and and became completely functionally deaf with a few short months. Dr. Shinners was thoughtful and caring through this hearing loss and my unexpected rapid transiton from being a hearing adult to a completely deaf mom. He is an excellent & experienced surgeon who performed my double cochlear implant surgery and oversaw my rehab with his great team of audiologists as I literally had to relearn altogether how to hear again from scratch with my new implants and hearing system. When my husband and his lawyers accused me of faking deafness and not needing ADA captioning accommodations to understand what was going on in our divorce trial, Dr. Shinners continued to advocate and fight for me and my health. He went above-and-beyond the call of duty and is truly a rock star. Highly recommend,
Very personable, considerable expertise, and handsome to boot.

I've been a regular patient of Dr. Shinners. He has examined me multiple times and operated on me more than once. He is kind and empathetic. Further, he has always taken the time to fully explain issues and answer my questions. I appreciate his honesty and demeanor and my visits are always professional yet amiable.
