Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

Doctor was outstanding, one of the Best I'v dealt with. Listened and responded with meaningful and understandable responses. The nurse that brought me back to the room not so much. Must of been having a Bad day, little bit rude and short.

I don't believe Press-Ganey provides the best measurement of provider adequacy. DR. Shinabarger provided a service I requested, were had an informed discussion about it, and I have no issues. He and his staff were professional, courteous, and what I would expect. Since I am a Legacy employee, and a health care provider myself, I suspect my visits are somewhat different than a non health care provider. I don't need to have a long discussion regarding my current health issues, medications, etc. I generally know what I need/how I would like to proceed, and then ask the provider for their input, so it's a different experience.

Very friendly and trustworthy to talk with about my health/foot concerns. Dr. Shinabarger seemed to understand the importance of my questions as an active person and had some practical advice for how to continue that as I get older.

I was pretty nervous going in but, all of my questions were answered respectfully and received patiently. My mind and heart were put very much at ease by the time I left the office and I was excited about my upcoming surgery. Both Doctors I saw were amazing.

I was referred to this podiatrist by my primary Dr. Dr. SHINABARGER had read all of my previous records re: my ankle surgeries and asked great questions. He identified arthritic pain spots on right foot, gave me a cortisone shot, and referred me to a PT clinic that specifically can address my pain. He spent 40 minutes with me which was 30 minutes more than I ever got in [location removed] Docs. I will want to re-visit him, since my ankle was injured in [year removed] and likely will need on going review by a good podiatrist. He is terrific!

I was in the exam room in a minute, the medical assistant was fast and thorough. They had x-rays done before my actual appointment time even started. I've never felt more listened to or been given and shown a reason for my pain so quickly. I assumed he would be like the rest and just tell me there's no reason for the pain. I wish he worked on more than feet honestly. One of the best medical visits I've had in a long time.

Dr. Shinabarger was personable, friendly, and listened to me. He was caring, understanding, and relatable. He made me comfortable and not anxious about my joint problems, and also allowed me to ask questions, no matter how detailed or extraneous, without making it seem like a burden. He alleviated a lot of my anxiety about my joint problem, and also took my entire medical history into account, so understood my different perspectives on surgery, etc. I would definitely recommend him as far as his approach to consultation and giving medical advice. I left feeling understood, heard, and with a lot of new information that I didn't have before.

The resident, med student and dr all spent a lot of time explaining my condition and listening to my concerns. Dr offered several options of care, asked if I'd had imaging, arranged a referral, and gave me options as to place of treatment. I left the appointment feeling very well heard and very well cared for.

Dr Shinabarger performed my left foot surgery, and now we are preparing for surgery on my right foot. He has always made me feel extremely safe and, I know this sounds strange, but happy or uplifted. He has a wonderful bedside manner and a great sense of humor which I dearly appreciate. He is excellent at explaining all the details of the surgery that took away a considerable amount of concern I may have had. It was a pleasure to see him again.

There was an internist involved in the consultation and 80% of the interaction was with him. I thought I had a significant problem, Tailor's bunion and it turned out to be something that was insignificant. As a result it was a short, to the point visit that assured me that my feet were in good condition. I was relieved.

Dr. Shinabarger has a well-deserved reputation as an excellent doctor, but he and patients deserve more from his staff. Often disorganized, don't listen as well as he does, things fall through the cracks, occasionally rude.

I spent way too much time with the student, and little time with the actual provider. Yet no one explained the condition of my feet - the reason I was there. He jumped to the diagnosis of plantar fasciitis without explaining the implications of the diagnosis and without addressing the other issues potentially causing my foot pain (like I am stepping on sharp rocks). Xrays were taken and posted, but no one - the students or the practitioner, explained what the xrays showed or the implications for my condition. As someone with significant medical knowledge, I was left to interpret the xrays on my own, not to mention the impact the other xray findings had on my condition. In the days since I saw the practitioner him, the home exercises he gave me have only exacerbated my pain. I recognize the delay COVID-19 caused in my being able to secure an appointment meant my appointment got pushed - meaning the student who was initially seeing me was just starting his rotation. But to me, that meant the practitioner should have spent more time with me, not less. I recognize I have a complicated medical history, but I came away feeling that having to repeat my history multiple times meant my time with the Dr. was rushed. I was disappointed and dissatisfied with the visit and will have to think long and hard about whether I continue treatment with him or seek help elsewhere.

My provider Dr. Shinabarger is a qualified podiatrist and surgeon. I am very pleased with my surgery results and with his post surgery care during the past six months. He's a good listener and always shows concern. I recommend him for all patients who need reconstructive, revision, or sports-related surgeries.
