Ratings for Dr. David W. SHOEMAKER
It's true, read the reviews, this office herds you in like cattle and everything takes so long. Initially they told me my insurance will cover their costs, and because of this they did extensive tests on my eyes with a cost over $1000. Then they started billing me and told me my insurance did not cover these tests ! They should have told me first ! Billing Dept is very unprofessional and deceitful. The staff is the problem.
Eye surgery can be a scary thing, but Dr Shoemaker and his entire staff, from initial office visit through surgery, were top notch at communicating information, treating you like you are the only patient they have to care for, and removing any apprehension you might have. I could not be happier with the professionalism and care I received and the outcome of the surgeries!
I was very apprehensive going in for cataract surgeries. The second one was much easier thanks to an understanding and caring nurse staff. Although the staff is very busy with many patients the individual attention is excellent. My new vision is better than I expected. Both Dr. Lenhart and Dr. Shoemaker are expert at their craft.
I have been very pleased with my entire cataract surgery experience so far. Yes they are busy - but honestly at every step I felt that I was given the attention I needed - people acted as though they were not in a hurry and they answered my questions. I believe I am a high maintenance patient in that I am very picky about my physicians, Yes expertise is essential but I also pay attention to bedside manners, respect shown to me as a patient, how an office is run, etc. I have been pleased with all so far. AND last but not least - I am still astounded at the difference in my sight now - and plan to begin donating to the Mission Cataract Foundation to help to restore others to this clarity. It is just wonderful!
While I was rather shocked to discover that I needed cataract surgery when I thought all I needed was a new prescription, I was exceptionally pleased that my neighbors referred me to the Center for sight . Doctors Lenhart and Shoemaker and every single staff member I came in contact with were all very professional knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable every step of the way. Many thanks to you all.
