Very friendly staff and experience. Great communication and follow up from everyone

  Jul 24, 2023
From the first call of inquiry to the day of surgery the staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. They helped me navigate uncharted territory during a very difficult situation, which needed immediate response, but had many moving parts effecting timing. New patient gal & Dr. Shinabarger are great!

  Jul 24, 2023
The doctor and assistant were very professional and personable

  Jul 24, 2023
I really liked Dr. Shinabarger, & I could tell he is very knowledgeable, but I could also tell he was in a hurry, and the adhesive I thought I was supposed to get to go with the heel lift wasn't given to me. When I went back up to get the adhesive, they just said to use double-backed tape, which didn't work! Also, when I went to PT yesterday, the PT I see didn't yet have any comments or orders from Dr. Shinabarger.

  Jul 21, 2023
Dr Shinabarger is an absolute wonderful dr. He's caring, positive, listens very intently on what you say to him.His staff treats me so good! He's a really special dr.

Dr Shinabarger is truly amazing super caring very respectful talking to me while he removes my nail keeping me distracted and calm

  Jun 30, 2023
All the people I had contact with, from the phone calls to the office staff to the Doctors were the most professional and nicest that I have ever dealt with in any of my medical history so far.

  Jun 30, 2023
I was very happy and impressed with how my appt went

  Jun 16, 2023
My visit was informative, positive, and to the point. The staff was great - Positive Energy.

  Jun 15, 2023
There was miscommunications sometimes with receptionist. We had to go back and forth a little bit. But could have been phone reception?

  Jun 12, 2023
All excellent with the exception of receptionist could use a little pallish on edikate. It would be nice if the receptionist would respond when spoken to. Most of the receptionist are spot-on.

  May 18, 2023
Dr Shinabarger is excellent. He has a great way of making you feel cared for and he absolutely knows his field. It's a relief to be able to work with an expert who knows just what to do for my issues.

  May 16, 2023
Dr. Shinabarger was awesome. He fixed a blotched up surgery from Adventist Hosp. I can't say enough good about him.

  May 9, 2023
Dr. Shinabarger is my foot dr. I am SO THANKFUL for his expertise and follow thru. Attention to detail both professionally and personably. He is the best A+++.

  May 4, 2023
In addition to the provider himself, I thought the x-ray technician (Alan) was personable as well as competent and informative.

  May 4, 2023
Doctor was fine. X-ray people good. Some things were not explained well by assistants. Moving to X-ray, foot care and help after walking barefoot from X-ray to exam room. Confusing on how to sanitize feet.

  May 2, 2023
I felt very heppy after the visit with to my doctor.The office lady went above and beyond on the phone. Sometime before my visit to be sure that I was covered with financial assistance through Legacy health.She was very helpful, without her help I would've had to cancel the appointment and I would've been in a wheelchair the rest of my life.Thank you

  Apr 20, 2023
I didn't even get to ask questions before he was out the door. I waited in pain for almost 2 months for the visit. I had to research myself for the over the counter meds he recommend. Overall VERY disappointing. What has happened to this once great hospital?

  Apr 20, 2023
It was good. A bit quick. Thought it would be a little bit more involved. But over all it was a pleasant experience.

  Apr 20, 2023
It went well.

  Apr 20, 2023
I had a great visit overall and loved the Doc and the staff were all friendly. There was some confusion with the MA however, she kept asking about imaging and there hadn't been any done and asked me if I wanted to get them done and I replied if the doctor recommends it as I hadn't been examined. It was just an odd order of events and put me in an uncertain place regarding necessity and cost of imaging and who was doing the decision making and their scope? I'm new to podiatry so maybe this is routine. The same MA at the end of appointment did not give correct discharge info, I needed to ask for the stretches exercises paperwork and I did not receive an AVS which I hope is on my health log in. I'm not sure if this person is new but I think it would be helpful to have more of a process when interacting with patients. They were nice overall just disorganized.

  Apr 14, 2023
I had a very positive experience, Every staff person I met, from the receptionist to the nurse who took me to my room, and especially the nurse who took my foot x-rays, was very friendly and professional. Dr. Shinabarger was particularly good. He was knowledgeable, reassuring and knew exactly what problem I was experiencing with my feet and why. He was also friendly and attentive, taking plenty of time to talk to me and answer my questions. I came away from my appointment feeling like that my problem had been addressed and I had a good treatment plan. In addition, the nurse who saw me after the doctor did, and gave me the printout on the exercises I needed to do, the insoles I needed to order and how to use the metatarsal pads she gave me, was very helpful and clear in her instructions.

  Mar 30, 2023
Very skilled, nice, respectful professionals.

He has always genuine and concerned about my health. Easy to relate to. Really appreciate him and his team they always treat me with respect. And see me in a timely manner.

  Mar 23, 2023
Very satisfied with my experience.

  Mar 21, 2023
I did not get respond from office when I called . When I saw the Dr. At my work and discuss my problem with him Dr.Shinabarger himself made the appoinment that was so kind and careing of him .

  Mar 17, 2023
Listening skills of all those I met were excellent and the communication was fabulous.

  Mar 16, 2023
Dr. Shinabarger is fine if you have a straightforward diagnosis and need routine treatment. If you have anything more complex or requiring creative problem solving/treatment you'd be best served by finding another provider.

  Mar 10, 2023
Very professional, straight forward and honest. He answered all of my questions efficiently, and gave enough time to make sure that the answers were understood. One of the best doctors that I have seen in a long time.

  Mar 9, 2023
Turns out my toenails are not badly ingrown and do not need the services of this podiatrist, who specializes in orthopedics. He clipped one nail to see the extent of the ingrown nail(s), and sent me back to my technician. He was very kind throughout, didn't demean me for coming, and gave me confidence in talking with my podiatric technician.

  Mar 3, 2023
Dr Shinabarger is probably THE best doctor/surgeon that I have ever seen and I've seen a lot. He is so upbeat and happy. Very positive. He remembers important things about you and your family. He remembered our new grandsons name. I am so confident in my surgery and the repairs he did. My husband and I both are dreading the day we see him last. He is a keeper.

  Mar 3, 2023
Seemed knowledgeable and had prompt answers to my questions

  Mar 2, 2023
He knows his stuff and is amazing

  Feb 28, 2023
I had a great experience this time and I appreciate changes made for me to enjoy the experience moving forward

  Feb 28, 2023
Dr Shinabarger is among the best doctors I have ever visited. He is competent, caring and thorough. An excellent physician. Six stars on a five star scale.

  Feb 21, 2023
Very happy with all aspects of my visit and response from my initial call to set the appointment.

  Feb 21, 2023
I trust him completely and always feel better after seeing him. He explains and tells me the truth, but is encouraging and says things like, well it Is all about small victories isn't it? He answers ALL of my questions. He is a skilled, knowledgeable, caring doctor and surgeon. I wouldn't go to anyone else. I consider him the gold standard in his profession.

  Feb 20, 2023
Felt a bit rushed but that's typical for Legacy. As is often the case, the assistant asked irrelevant questions and didn't seem to understand what was needed. The doctor, as usual, was very good.

  Feb 17, 2023
He gave me a steroid injection in my left ankle. Has helped immensely. I know it is a short term relief.

  Feb 17, 2023
I came into the office on crutches with a freshly broken fibula. Assistance was offered by staff, but I felt that my autonomy and independence was respected, which was important to me. I also did not have to wait very long to be seen and was allowed to move furniture around to get comfortable in the waiting room. The care team and the doctor himself were all very kind as well as extremely conscientious and gentle with my injury, especially during my assessment and x-rays. Additionally, all of my questions were answered and I appreciate that I was given a realistic and compassionate answer when I asked the doctor (pre x-rays) if I'd need surgery.....While the human beings were wonderful, I would have liked a white noise machine in the exam room (mostly to help with anxiety- the aspect of surgery was especially was difficult).Also it would have been easier to get comfortable in the waiting room if there were foot rests/ ottomans/ foot stools available or offered to prop up my injured ankle. It struck me as odd and inconvenient that these weren't already present in an office specializing in podiatry.

  Feb 17, 2023
Dr was friendly,listened and explained well.

  Feb 7, 2023
Felt very safe and assured with his care.

  Feb 2, 2023
The Dr is outstanding and very friendly

  Jan 30, 2023
Someone from the team made sure my questions were addressed, when I didn't feel like they were. Everything was cleared up, and I felt heard, and was satisfied. I would recommend Dr Shinabarger and his staff to anyone (and have!)

  Jan 30, 2023
The MAs were amazing! Efficient, friendly and helped me get a quick appointment for a painful problem! Dr Shinabarger is great! I have referred many friends to him.

  Jan 26, 2023
Everything and everyone was fantastic!

  Jan 26, 2023
Excellent response and recommended surgery on left foot bunion. Surgery was well done, little pain and the recovery to date is terrific. Shinabarger is an excellent surgeon, great interpersonal skills and I'd recommend him to family or friends

  Jan 24, 2023
The doctor seemed extremely rushed and I actually had questions as I was walking out the door that I just didn't feel I had time to explore or ask.

  Jan 24, 2023
This was an absolutely great surgical experience! Everyone took great care of me throughout the process! Specialists such as the Anesthesiologists went in very great clear and concise details to answer all of my questions. The nurses provided me with great care and really helped me out on the day of the surgery. This surgery went smoothly and very well, I am motivated to get my left foot healed so that Dr Shinabarger can perform the same procedures on my right foot as soon as he thinks I have recovered sufficiently from my left foot operations. I now have hope that I will back running again one day, I know it will be a while, that is ok. I am extremely grateful for having Dr. Shinabarger operate on my left foot. Thanks to everyone who helped make this possible!

  Jan 12, 2023
Since it generally takes 3 weeks from appointment request to appointment availability, it would be optimal to have a 'wait list' option in order to have a chance at an earlier appointment. I waited too long with my condition, hoping it would resolve itself, before contacting the specialist. It appears I should make an appointment ASAP and then cancel if my condition resolves prior to the appointment date.

This provider is awesome

  Dec 19, 2022
I was seen first by an intern who explained plantar fasciitis in clear terms and a friendly, attentive manner, Dr. Shinabarger came into the exam room after about 15 minutes, looked at my foot, and recommended treatment. He spent about 5 minutes with me.

  Dec 19, 2022
This doctors is top notch. He is very good at explaining what is happening and your options. He remembers you. He like you in the eye. His whole team is exceptional.

  Dec 16, 2022
All good.

  Dec 15, 2022
It took several months and many phone calls to get the surgery scheduled. One it was scheduled the experience was very good.

  Dec 13, 2022
Dr. Shinabarger is a real asset to the Legacy Medical Group. He is not only an excellent practitioner in terms of skill and expertise, he also has a top tier professional manner with excellent communication and personal care. I am extremely grateful for being a patient of Dr. Shinabarger. I had an unfortunate accident, but was fortunate to be connected with him as a care giver. BIG Thank you to him and the whole team.

  Dec 13, 2022
I didn't feel rushed during the visit. But two things he said he would do for me. He didn't tell the nurse who came to bring in my review of my visit. I had to ask for a referral list.

  Dec 13, 2022
Very professional, great surgeon!!Great team, Office and assistants.I'm very please with their care.

  Dec 12, 2022
Provider is very informative, professional, approachable. I feel very confident I am in good hands receiving good care for injury.

  Dec 12, 2022
He's in and out, barely listens, doesn't help get surgery appeal through so walking is painful and basically disabled without surgery

  Dec 1, 2022
Just routine

  Nov 29, 2022
Dr Shinabarger always offers thorough thoughtful attention

  Nov 22, 2022
I was impressed with Dr Shinabarger's knowledge, experience, and plan to repair my bone and tendon. He was very polite, direct, and attentive at any concern and question I had. He made sure I understood exactly how the injury created the bone break and how the repair would heal the bone and tendon. He also offered an option to his plan to consider. Dr Shinabarger has a smile throughout our appointment as well as a moment to discuss hobbies.

  Nov 22, 2022
I love Dr. Shinabarger. He is by far the best doctor I've ever had, of any kind. He's incredibly smart and confidence inspiring, but also has great 'bedside manner'. He's all around a fantastic doctor. I wish he could just be my regular doc I see for everything. (I know I can't, and that's okay, he's doing amazing things for people's feet and he's 100% the reason I can walk today)

  Nov 18, 2022
Dr Shinabarger listens very intently to every thing I say. He's very good at explaining things in a way I understand. He seems to have tons of patience. I have a great deal of trust in him!

  Nov 17, 2022
Very personable, knowledgeable, efficient and easy to understand.

  Nov 17, 2022
My previous podiatrist retired. This was my first visit with Dr Shinabarger, and he did everything I hoped for with my first visit. I really liked him.

  Nov 15, 2022
Very pleased with my last visit.

  Nov 8, 2022
Dr. Shinabarger is highly experienced, which gives confidence to this patient. He knows what he's doing and can talk about it. I have great respect for his skill. He tends to be in a hurry, but I think that is his nature. I have followed his post-operative instructions, and I am totally satisfied with the outcome, almost a year after surgery. My old foot and I have Dr. Shinabarger to thank.

  Nov 1, 2022
All good

  Nov 1, 2022
Very professional, yet personable

  Oct 31, 2022
The provider is very rushed. His residents spend time with me but when he comes in I would say he Is with me for less than 2 minutes. I get conflicting information from him that makes me not completely trust his recommendations (ie. I work with a physical therapist who gave very clear recommendations that conflicted with Dr Shinabarger's-for example he told me that it was ok to walk barefoot around the house when my foot was still clearly fx and the PT felt that was not supportive for healing). My foot is healing but the fx is still visible on the xray (per the Radiologist's reading) and Dr Shinabarger signed off on my care. So I will just assume it will continue to heal with no additional xrays planned. That does not seem right to me.

  Oct 25, 2022
Great doctor, great staffing

  Oct 24, 2022
Dr. Shinabarger was extremely knowledgeable about all questions and concerns that I have. I am looking forward to having him perform upcoming surgeries on both my feet. I am grateful to have access to medical care that greatly benefit my quality of life.

  Oct 24, 2022
Excellent review of my foot problem. Answered my questions thoroughly and respects my opinions. We agreed on the best protocol to proceed with to repair my arthritic and painful toe. Personable and smart. I like him a lot.

  Oct 13, 2022
Neither good or bad

  Oct 6, 2022
I felt like he didn't understand that I don't have money to get my feet taken care of but yet he gave me false hope that someone would come to my house or I could go to someone who could help me. I however have to pay out of pocket. If I could do that I wouldn't of needed to go there!!!
