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
Dr Shoemaker is such a Wonderful Dr,he listens to your every needs & he is never in a hurry to see his patients,he always makes me feel comfortable when I have my annual pap smear,I had a bladder lift in 2007& it was successful, all of his staff are wonderful too,my money is well spent,I look forward in seeing him every time
I first saw Doctor Shoemaker in the early 80s. A regular check up, when asked if I had any complaint I told him I had been suffering pain in my lower left side that many dr. visits had found nothing. He told me he knew what it was but needed to be scoped to look into it. He was right (endometriosis). Since then he has taken the best care of me. He tells me I am the poster child for my bladder lift surgery. Office visits are always timely and courteous.
I felt very well taken care of by Dr. Shoemaker. Having had my first child born so little DR. Shoemaker made sure that he sought over my care in this my second pregnancy. He listen to all of my questions and he even had my husband feel my child's head which is very cool to do. He wasn't even bother by the fact that it has been just my child, my husband and I ( having no family here) he allowed my son in with us. Thank you so much Dr. Shoemaker I'm going to miss you. I loved having been in your care.
dr Shoemaker is phenomenal I trust his knowledge and expertise always professional and informative regarding my health and body.
I wouldn't change my choice in my ob/gyn, ever. I highly recommend Dr Shoemaker and his staff to all my friends and family.

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.
