My experience with this Physician was not pleasant.
He is always in a hurry, treats his patients like
they are "numbers". His staff seems constantly on
edge, and not happy with him. It takes more than
education to be a good Doctor. it also takes being a good person. I will not be seeing this Doctor again.

I have been seeing Dr. Shore for 10 years. He is without a doubt the most caring, nicest, detailed oriented doctor I have ever seen. He answers all my questions and provides me with expert care. With his help, my diabetes and high cholesterol levels have been kept in check. Thank you Dr Shore!

I completely disagree with annonymous.

Dr. Shore is one of the best Doctors I have ever had. He has always been caring and is concerned about my overall health, not just the issue for which I see him. The office staff is helpful. His nurse and PA are also caring and helpful. In addition, I almost never have to wait at my appointment. One time I had to wait 15 minutes past my appt time and both he Dr and staff apologized several times. Compare this to most Dr offices where routinely wait 30-60 minutes past my appt to be seen.

I also disagree with annonymous. It has been a few years since I was under Dr. Shore's care, but he was always very caring and concerned. His office staff was also wonderful and there were little to no wait times. The only reason I don't see Dr. Shore anymore is that he got my thyroid condition under control and released me back to my regular physician. Should I ever have need for his services again I wouldn't hesitate to go back to Dr. Shore.

I am a new patient of Dr. Shore. I found our initial visit to be very thorough. He sat in the chair in the examining room and actually took time to talk with me concerning all my symptoms. I was very pleased that I was allowed the time to ask questions and discuss the things that were concerning me about my health. The office atmosphere was very pleasant as well.

Dr. Shore is a consumate professional. Beyond his obvious expertise, considerate care, innovative solutions and expectional patience (he needs it with me), Dr. Shore is a fine and caring person I'd recommend to anyone.

I was recommended to Dr. Shore and saw another doctor in the practice that was very unprofessional. I found Dr. Shore to be a caring doctor that took the time to explain my procedure and next steps that it left me with very few questions to ask. Unlike the last doctor who answered very few questions and then when she answered it was with a cynical anwer. I really like Dr. Shore.

I am a realtive new comer to the world of Diabetes. I have only been diabeticc for 40 years now. I have seen Dr Shore and Thish for about 12 years now. They are both very good DR's. Doctor Shore can be tough if you are not takeing care of yourself, witch he should be, it is the pataints resonsablity to take care of themself. If you will follow what they tell you and take care you can travel the world like I have . If not you will be sick and have many complications. It is a pain in the but butt. There is no one who can not do it if the try

Dr. Shore is the BEST doctor I have had in my 64 years of life. He ALWAYS is professional, caring, and sincerely concerned with ME. He CARES. What else can anyone wish for in any medical doctor. I never leave an appointment with any unanswered questions or concerns, regardless of the time required of Dr. Shore to ensure that I understand his diagnoses and treatment recommendations. I doubt anyone could ever find a more caring individual than Dr. Shore. I trust him with my life, and I feel great because of his treatment over the years. I have been seeing him for over 4 years. FABULOUS doctor, individual, and friend.

I saw this doc in 2009 and thought he was great. He was the first doc out of 10 to believe that anything was wrong with me. I had some weird things going on. I am now going back in 2 days to see if he can help with some other problems. I think this doc is GREAT! I will report back after I see him Monday.

I agree with anonymous. My child was severely berated by this man. First visit she was told she had PCOS and we had hope that this doctor, along with his exemplary ratings, could help her. I had to schedule the second visit as he just wanted to leave a voice mail on blood work results and that should have been a red flag right there. At the second visit he berated her for her activity level and the fact that she was not a ordinary teen. Ordinary teen? How many does he actually know? She is as active,if not more so than her friends! Later he said it was obvious to him she was depressed and that was her problem. Uh, doctor, any "human" with feelings would be depressed after meeting with you! Why, she just completely shut down when you walked in the door with your bad attitude! He then recanted that he wasn't sure if it was PCOS...WTF??? I don't understand all of the good ratings, but they must be older patients that saw him before he became addicted to narcotics, because that is the only thing I can think of besides a brain tumor to explain his bi-polar personality.

I am so glad you had that experience because I did not. He was THE worst doctor I have ever seen! It looks like it depends on what day you get him or who he chooses to be nice to. Goodness, I have never met anyone that is that rude and in such a hurry to get you out. The appointment was less than 5 minutes with no explanation or answering of my questions.

He's definitely tough ... if you mean that he is rude and mean. Maybe he's changed since 2010.

PLEASE LOOK AT THE DATES OF THE REVIEWS BEFORE YOU VISIT THIS OFFICE.
While the office and office staff is nice, the DR was the WORST doctor I have ever seen in my life. I visited the office and it was the first time there. I know someone who sees another doctor there so I thought I would try it. I was very wrong to try and waste my money. He belittled me and made me feel like I wasn't intelligent to ask questions. He was in a hurry and did NO examination. I never write reviews, but I had to write a review about this man. I have never experienced something so terrible from a medical professional in my life. I hope that no one else visits this man and does not waste their copay.
Dr. Shore if you ever read this, please work on your bedside manner as well as how you care for patients. I don't want to assume you are in it for the money but if you are please know that you are hurting people.
Good luck to any future patients.

My experience with this practice is completely disappointing and disheartening! I am unemployed and a nurse (not the doctor) recommended that take part in a Patient Assistance Program with Novo Nordisk. I applied and was approved. I received one shipment of a four month supply of medication. I called the office after the time that another shipment was supposed to have been received and the head nurse said that I had to come in for an office visit first (it was a requirement of the program). I informed her that I was taking participating in the program because I was unemployed and had no financial means of any medical testing or treatments outside of the program. She again stated that this was required to participate in the program. I asked for the contact number for Novo Nordisk and she said she did not have that information. I reminded her that she had just read comments from a letter they received from the program and that she was not telling me the truth concerning having the information that I was requesting. She then gave me the number and hung up. I called the program, informed them of the conversation and they said the only thing they require is for the practice to send another prescription. Therefore, the head nurse blatantly lied. I then called the office and spoke with the nurse again and informed her of the conversation I had with the Novo Nordisk representative. The nurse then said they will not write another prescription! I made the comment that it appeared they were more concerned with me coming in for a visit, inquiring more debt (because of being uninsured and unemployed) than me dying due to diabetic complications due to the lack of proper medication… and she said did not respond! They are seemingly uncaring and uncompassionate to patients that were loyal to the practice. I am severely disappointed and disheartened by the lack of truth and care that I’ve experienced with them…
