OR tech

I was an operating room tech in Texas while Dr. Shindell was a fellow. He was an excellent surgeon then and I would bet he has only improved with time. A very caring doctor and a great man. It was a pleasure to work for him.

Abrasive and Gruff

When I took my 13 month old son to see him he was very abrasive and gruff. His bedside manner with my son was nothing like I was expecting a doctor who sees children to be like. I was willing to give him a second chance but at the next appointment he showed his true colors. Was not willing to look at other options other than surgery and then bad mouthed the physical therapist to me. I left that appointment and went home and called a different doctor. His office staff took 3 weeks to get back to me about a physical therapist and told me they could find one in my area. By that point I had found one on my own 12 miles from my house and my son had already been seen. When I called back staff didn't even know what was going on with my son. They had to call me back when they found someone who knew what was going on.

The Best

20+ years I have seen Dr. Shindell. Nice, friendly, patient, understanding, gentle, caring, and easy to talk to. I remember how secure he made me feel as a child having to go through a spinal operation and I now take my son to him. Not only is he amazing at his profession, a surgeon who cares enough to take the time to make a child comfortable is hard to find. Thank you!

Dr. Shindell was very abrupt and obnoxious. As a worried parent, he just brushes you off and is moer worried about his lunch.

Our son was born with club foot many years ago. Not only did Dr Shindell correct this issue, but his manner with us as parents was patient and encouraging. For orthopedic issues, I would go no where else.
