Dr. Shinar is such a wonderful doctor!! He is very caring & compassionate. He did my hip replacements in 2014 and I had to see him for an injury. He made me feel so much better that my injury wasn't as bad as I thought and would just take a long time to heal.

This doctor don't like wasting time. He comes in check patient, explain briefly & hurrying & he's out of the exam room as fast as he possible can get out. He doesn't believe in idling the time away. Every minute is very important to him.
