"Love Dr Shinada finally feel like I know what’s going on with this “lupus” I might have."
"I absolutely adore Dr. Shinada! I searched for 2 years for a Rheumatologist that would give me straight up answers about my Rheumatoid Arthritis. I had been treated by 2 other docs who gave little answers. I lived in OC and drove over an hour to try Dr. Shinada, and HE IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST!! I didn't believe I had RA cuz my blood tests were negative. He told me to call the next time I had a flare up & he'd fit me in. He did, & I saw him & he confirmed that I did in fact have RA. Of course I cried, he comforted me & gave me options ( meds, studies that they do at USC ) and most importantly he explained everything so clearly that I felt so comfortable that I con't to do the crazy 5 fwy drive for many years. Even when my insurance changed, I paid cash to see him! That is how amazing this doctor is! His office staff is awesome! They are so kind. I have been an RN for over years, and I choose my doctors carefully. I Idk why someone would ever give him a review of " 1" because this doctor is the complete pkg of knowledge & kindness. Make an appt. with him & you will see how amazing he is."
"I am very grateful with Doctor Shinada. He and Dr. Cassetta discovered my illness and basically saved my life. He is very kind, listens and explains the treatment. He is never in a rush, and really cares for his patient. I would recommend him %. Good job Dr. you are cleaning up other doctors professionalism. I regain faith in doctors when you started treating me."
"This goes for Dr. Suntaro and the director of Rheumatology. A couple of years ago I went to see Dr. Suntaro. I saw him for maybe a year. This Doctor would come into the room and seat on his computer which is Approx. feet away from me. The whole time he is talking to me he is typing on the computer. Any colder would be impossible. When he completed his report he who would walk up to me and barely would touch me. I was very ill with R/A and he recommended for me to have cortisone intravenous at another location. In the past I had cortisone intraveneous at UC LA for five days and all this was done in the hospital while I was admitted. So many things can go wrong with the patient with this process and it could kill us. When I arrived at the clinic to have this process done they told me that the Doctor had requested five days of intravenous cortisone. I said "No" that is very dangerous without a doctor present, I could do it for one day but, not five. My next appt. with the doctor was in a month. I decided that I did not like this doctor's treatment and wrote to the director of Rheumatolgy that it was unacceptable and dangerous for a doctor to prescribe five days of intraveneous cortisone. To my amazement this director wrote that I could never be seen by any doctor at USC. I just found this out and I am in disbelief. May all these bastards that cannot take criticism go to hell. Not all doctors are good doctors and this director what ever his name is should of followed up. This is not the way to take care of a patient."
"I saw Dr. Shuntaro one time. The visit was neither bad or good. He evaluated me and ordered blood tests. He told me to message him through the patient portal when I got the blood work done, which I did. I did not receive any response or call for a follow up appt. After a few months and more symptoms I messaged him again, no response or call from USC, or Dr. Shuntaro. I am very disappointed I wasted time and drove 5 hours to see this doctor for nothing."
