Specialties

Dr. Richard C Shinaman has the following 2 specialties

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Five Stars

Dr. Shinaman is honestly one of the best doctors I've had, and I have seen many! After a medical accident and a few back/neck surgeries, he was the doctor that actually helped me with the severe pain and arm radiculopathy. He's always knowledgeable about the latest medical research and incorporates naturopathic therapy into his treatment plans for his patients. He takes his time, really listens and is an all around amazing physician. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Shinaman.

Relieved

I wish I would have found Dr. Shinaman 20 years ago. I have lived with severe back pain for a long time. The pain became increasingly worse every year. There were days that I didn't want to, or couldn't get up because of the pain. I visited about a dozen different Doctors over the years and was prescribed physical therapy, which in some instances made the pain worse and a myriad of so called muscle relaxers and anti-inflamatory drugs. One doctor even accused me a being a "hypochondriac" and perhaps I was - I was looking for anything that would relieve the pain. I was finally referred to Dr. Shinaman after I had a hip replaced, knee surgery and prostate cancer. Within weeks after visiting Dr. Shinaman he diagnosed my problem and prescribed a plan to deal with the pain. Before I met Dr. Shinaman I was taking 7 to 9 Advil tablets every day. I searched for and took over the counter medication that claimed to reduce pain. The medication was causing me to develop stomach problems. I am so grateful to Dr. Shinaman and his staff. I feel as though I've been given a new life, Thank you Dr. Shinaman and staff!
