Everyone was so professional and respectful. I was in a lot of pain and I felt like everyone in the office was aware of that, and cared about that, taking special effort to make me feel better.

Dr. Shinabarger is very knowledgeable, shares information easily (except when he can't explain a situation) and I always feel he takes time to describe Issues thoroughly as well as answer my questions-he takes a generous amount of time even when his schedule is packed. My only complaint-and it would not make me hesitate to see him or recommend him to others-is that he's bright and he anticipates my question before I'm finished. This results in frequent interruptions which can add to the stress of the visit, since I am already there because I have a painful medical issue. I've found that if I circle back he'll let me finish my thought so I suspect it's his conversational style rather than impatience. One the plus side he's generous with his time and gives the impression that he is actively working toward my well-being. Plus he's friendly, has a good sense of humor and he is very upbeat-good qualities when patients come in with broken bones and chronic pain.

The provider, resident, and medical student were amazing! The nurses and clerk were too. I told my mom she should come see Dr Andrew, as she saw a different provider and was unhappy. Told her how great Dr Andrew was so she'll be making an appointment soon :)

Was able to diagnose the issue. Did not explain the x-ray well enough. Talked about therapy, but didn't explain when it should start or what kind of treatment the therapy would include. Was given instructions for a sprain, but was not informed whether it was a sprain or a strain. Was not offered anti-inflammatory or pain medication. Was not offered a foot stabilizer such as a boot.

Dr. Shinabarger is straightforward and compassionate when talking about how to treat injuries. I always feel respected. I fully trust his judgement, and because of his work on my ankle I can walk without pain for the first time in years.

My initial appt could not be scheduled for a month and a half. Resident and student examined me before physician arrived. The Doctor and I had a nice conversation about common friends at LMG, but he asked only a few questions during his review of my foot. I felt like he acted more on the resident's feedback, than on his own interaction with me. After the appt, MA brought printed orthotic information and a hand-out of exercises with small/very dark photos. I asked questions about both and she responded "I don't know". When I asked for shoe recommendations, she gave me a printed list again, without discusssion. The long wait to see this doctor, the dispensing of printed instruction, and no encouragement to Interact with doctor, does not feel like I am partnering with my doctor to Improve this Issue.

Everyone in the office was friendly personable and made me feel comfortable. This includes the two people at the front desk, the x-ray technician who was really pleasant, the medical assistant, the student doctor, and the doctor.The only thing that could've been better was that I needed to wait so long for the referral to go through my insurance, which isn't Legacy good Samaritan's fault.

I first met with an assistant who performed their own exam. Then there were additional X-rays. I then saw the doctor for about 10 minutes. I don't believe the exam was thorough, since I told the assistant my foot hurt when pushed from the side, but neither the assistant or doctor seemed to think that was relevant based on their exams of my foot. A fifth person came in to show me how to put supports in my shoe, but the "teaching" was very swift and not particularly courteous (they didn't explain the entire reason I would be taking my insole out of shoe, putting a small support in, then replacing the insole - it was step by step, which I would prefer only after being explained what we would be doing first). This fifth person did not thoroughly go through explaining all of the handouts. Overall, it seemed like the actual doctor was in there as little time as possible to get the job done. I will be seeking a second opinion, not at Legacy.

When I fractured my ankle it did take a couple of weeks to get in for an appt. It was summer and everyone has been dealing with covid stipulations and people on vacations so I do understand.

Dr A. Shinabarger is a great dr and was my dr when he was at Salmon Creek. Since he left I have been seeing a different doctor for my foot pain but the pain didn't go away that is why I knew I needed to come to Portland to see dr Shinabarger cause I knew he would find out what is wrong and he did.

I love Dr. Shinabarger - most communication is messaging thru app - his assistants are the responders & I am not happy w/how they respond. Even after a phone call, the assistant was not empathetic - I wanted to get a shot to ease my pain.

I just have many more questions that popped up after I left the visit. The recommended procedure is surgery. I do t want to bother the office but need to get my questions answered. I'm sure if I called this office would find a way to answer them though, I just don't want to be bombarding with questions. I'm thinking email. This provider is very polite, professional, and extremely easy to talk to!

Dr. Shinabarger is one of the very best providers available!! His knowledge, skill, and empathy are outstanding & I wouldn't let anyone else perform my upcoming surgery or care for my ankle issues nor my family's. Additionally, Dr. Shinabarger understands the extra complexity of my case due to a connective tissue disorder. He is the best! Don't screw up and loose him!!! P.S. I am a former CME Coordinator that was one of the top in my field, so I know a little about what I'm talking about!! Thank you for allowing me to give my experience to you!

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.

I felt a bit rushed during appointments but I kept asking questions. He was super nice and patient but I felt like I was taking too long. Also, the take home PT worksheet is an AWFUL copy and looked completely unprofessional. I can hardly see the pictures. Also, I would have very much benefited from ANY explanation of the exercises. When I tried it on my own, I felt shooting pain. Maybe it's normal, maybe I went too hard. I don't know. I was literally handed the sheet of PT on my way out of the office. I have real PT appointment on Friday, so I will go over it with her but I want to do something until then.

I was charged for 4 minutes of the Dr.'s time. I did not get a reason why the injury could have happened, or what activities to stay away from or what at-home care I could do. I left in more pain that when I arrived! I was given a terrible black/white printout of stretches by the receptionist or nurse(?) which was not legible and I could not understand. No follow up from Dr.

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.
