I have been a patient of Dr. Shoemaker since 2010 & wouldn't consider going to anyone else ever! I just gave birth to my second daughter May 30, 2013, & Dr. Shoemaker and his staff were amazing. If I was told I had to do the delivery all over again the next day, I'd say "let’s do it!" Everyone made me feel comfortable & confident & really excited for the delivery which I feel helped move things along quickly and smoothly. My entire pregnancy, I was seen in the Kingsville office. The staff there is wonderful and Nurse Practitioner Christina Leach is truly amazing. I had to have a total Thyroidectomy when I was 19 weeks pregnant due to a cancerous nodule found at my first prenatal visit by Christina Leach. Both baby and I are just perfect now and I couldn't be more grateful. Thank You, Dr. Shoemaker & Staff for making both my pregnancies wonderful experiences.
My life is very much improved since I had the interstim implant. I started having "accidents" when I sneezed or coughed about 8 years ago. My family doctor said to do Kagels. I did them for some time and saw no improvement. Later. I began to have sudden urges and would leak before I made it. Later still, I would wake up, needing to go once each night and then two to three times each night. I went from wearing pantie liners during the day to thick pads day and night. I often worried that people near me might smell an odder. Most of the worries and inconvenience are gone since I had the implant. The sudden urgency feelings are completely gone and I don't have to go so frequently, including at night. I usually still get up once a night & still leak a little when I sneeze or cough. I am told that is due to weak bladder muscles, so I'm again doing Kagels. The process was relatively quick and easy. It just took a short time to set up the test device. I received the results quickly and was able to have the implant in just a few weeks. Best of all, the doctor has an extraordinary RN. She gave me her cell phone number at the first visit. I would call or text her frequently, day and night and she was always available. I have never had such access to medical personnel. Thanks
I didn't take the leaky bladder serious until I was walking to my office one day after seeing a patient and all of the sudden my bladder leaked and there it was urine down my leg, wet pants. I had a history of coughing at times and very little leaking but this was different. I was wearing panty liners, but the thought of "POISE", seriously. I was so upset and embarrassed I had to go home and change. Women don't like talking how this problem also affects their sex life. It affected mine. I was ashamed and embarrassed. I became depressed for a while and didn't want to leave my home. This problem was affecting me at work, home, and in my travel. The problem continued for several months till I saw Dr. Shoemaker. I tried a form of medication and it did not work. The Interstim implant trial was suggested and I went for it. To my amazement it worked. I had the final implant procedure November of 2012. There have been no side effects to date. This has changed my life forever. There are a lot of women out there who are very private about these problems and spend their whole lives living like this. I did not want to be that woman. I'm fifty years old with my first grandchild. I can enjoy my life now without any setbacks from an overactive bladder. I am a changed woman thanks to Interstim implant, Thank you Dr. Shoemaker and Rishana for your constant text support. I appreciate you more than you'll ever know.
After suffering for two years with excruciating pain from a bladder sling procedure done by another GYN. Dr. Shoemaker listened to my problem. He was compassionate, didn't make faces as I was explaining my issues. My husband was in the room and he appreciated how Dr. Shoemaker addressed both of us with my diagnosis and prognosis. Although it was an outpatient procedure Dr. Shoemaker kept me overnight because of his concern with my history of embolism.
Today, I Am Pain Free. No more bladder sling for me. I thank God for providing me with a caring man/doctor. I will remain under his care. I have a new Gynecologist. Thank you Dr. Shoemaker for your professionalism and excellent medical care. The surgical staff that worked with Dr. Shoemaker on the day of my surgery had nothing but praises of Dr. Shoemakers care for his patients.

Thank God for Dr. Shoemaker and his staff. He is a god send to me and his staff. He is a caring doctor and person in all. He is here to save lives and heal like god does. He is a kind, caring, professional and loving doctor. We need more doctors like him. I love the way he talks to me as a patient and for my care that he and his staff give. He smiles and talks as a doctor. He said I will take full responsibility of this patient. That spoke a lot for me. The staff is like the doctor. They are kind, loving, caring, and professional. They say "thank You", "how are you?" and are always smiling, helpful when you ask a question. Dress nice and look nice. They are a god send to me. Dr. Shoemaker and his staff are a god send. Thanks to all of you and I love you all.
Just wanted to say that Dr. Shoemaker is such a caring person. He really takes the time to cover all your issues and his bedside manor is refreshing. He doesn't make you feel embarrassed or awkward. He just gives you a sense of comfort. He chose the right vocation! 🙂 I would recommend him to the young and old alike.
To Whom It May Concern, I just need to say that Dr. Shoemaker has done a wonderful job. I am very pleased on what he has done I had the first surgery on prolapse bladder and then the second one rectocele and I would do it again that is how much I trust Dr. Shoemaker. I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you.
At age 65 I didn't think this surgery would be so easy and my recovery would take longer. I am happy to say the process was very successful in every way. Dr. Shoemaker and his staff have been a delight.
I have been a patient of Dr. Shoemaker's for years and am so glad he was my treating OB/GYN throughout my pregnancy. He was attentive and thorough during each visit and really helped to put my fears and anxieties concerning my pregnancy to rest. My son was born via C-section, which was done by Dr. Shoemaker and I was very pleased with how quickly I healed and how minimal my scarring was. My husband and I are now thoroughly enjoying our beautiful son, and we have Dr. Shoemaker to thank!!
To whom it may be of concern, I had a problem with the prolapsed bladder, but Dr. Shoemaker has been so patient with me and has helped me in so many ways. The last time that my surgery was done he did do well in trying his very best to do all the most that he could to correct my problem. I am so please with him and his staff. They all are the most caring and helpful. I appreciate it all so very much. I am doing real well after all that he has done for m
