So glad I was referred to Dr Shonnard. Not only is he very easy to talk to and takes time with you but very importantly, he listens. He explains the problem in understandable terms and offers solutions. He was very open to having my daughter join the appointment via phone and was happy to answer her questions. He did kyphoplasty on my fractured vertebrae on two separate occasions greatly relieving my pain. In addition to his knowledge and skill he has a very helpful and friendly staff. Pleased to have him as my doctor.
The Dr. took his time in explaining my issues as well as what directions I could take in the future. I never felt rushed. I'm pleased with the result.
Very friendly and personable. Just as I had been told from my chiropractor that referred me to Dr Shonnard. He made sure I understood my choices and situation A lot of Dr s rush thru your visit but I felt I got all the time I needed
He is very down to earth and easy to talk to. I felt very comfortable with him and tried to answer all his questions. Some things from years ago, I don't remember.
Very efficient, and informational.
Dr Shonnard was personable and explained my possible situation in terms and visuals that I was able to understand! It will be my honor to have him treat me as his patient.
I liked him. Honest and straightforward. I wish though he had given me my cortisone shots as requested.
Dr. Shonnard did a microdiscectomy and laminectomy at two levels in my lumbar spine. Over several years my condition (lower back pain with radiating numbness and weakness down the back of both legs into my feet) had gotten progressively worse. Lesser approaches including PT, steroids, and ESI shots did not resolve the problem. So surgery was my only option. I was anxious, but also hopeful that the surgery would help or resolve the problems. It has now been a week since my surgery, and I'm steadily getting better and my back pain is minimal. I have no numbness or weakness in my legs, and I'm able to walk much easier. Throughout the process Dr. Shonnard was caring and supportive, explaining all my options. He understood my concerns, and answered all my questions about them. He is an extremely knowledgeable and empathetic physician, who did an excellent job with my situation. I'm impressed with him - and he has helped me quite a bit. I recommend him highly.
Dr. Shonnard has a pleasant way of communicating his solution to a problem. He tells you what the problem is and how it can be remedied in layman's language so that a patient can understand what he is talking about.
It's not often that a doctors visit I easily compared to visiting a friend. The care level is personal and never leaves questions unanswered. Fortunate to have met doctors with this type of bed side manners. Thank you Neil for your caliber of care you provide for my family.
An outstanding spine surgeon who explained in detail my issue. Spent considerable time reviewing my MRI with me and discussing options for treatment.
?? so far so good.
Dr Shonnard was professional and most informative. I would definitely recommend him.
Dr. Shonnard has a great bedside manner, is very thorough and I am very happy with my total knee replacemenet.
The first thing the doctor said when he walked in was "I looked at your x-rays and you have a healthy back, so you don't need surgery." I informed him I wasn't here looking for surgery that I was wanting to find out why for the last 17 months my back has been hurting. In total this visit was a horrible experience and there is too much to say about it. I will never go back and I will tell everyone I know to stay away. I almost walked out of my consultation. And when I asked if he was not having a good day because he was in a bad mood he didn't respond to me. He also never allowed me the time to explain the last 17 months in detail. I feel it was a waste of my time and money.
Dr Shonnard was kindly and thorough.
Everyone was pleasant. Dr. Shonnard cares deeply about each patient and it shows.
He was genuinely concerned about figuring out why I am in pain and getting it fixed. He assured me he’d get to the bottom of it and get it fixed. Wonderful bedside manner and he’s very easy to talk to.
On time, good explanation of course of action and available options.
I was very disappointed with him when I went in. He seemed like he wanted to just do surgery and didn’t want to listen to what I was telling him. I went in to see him for a second opinion on my sciatic nerve pinched and if there was anything other than physical therapy to help get rid of the pain fully. I had an awful experience and I left very frustrated. Once I told him I didn’t want to do surgery he flipped a switch and rushed the appt to be done. I won’t be going there again.
