What Are People Saying About Dr. Shoham?

Sara Quinn

Scott Faringer

Dr. Shoham gave me an epidural injection for a disc herniation in my back. It was just what I needed to get moving again!

Richland, WA

Dr. Shoham is caring and has great bedside manners. He took time to answer all my questions and explained everything to me. Excellent doctor!!!

Bedside manner is awesome, caring, understand. Dr Shoham is amazing my, back injections don't' hurt when he carefully places the needle at the point of irritation. The fact that Dr Shiham is an anesthesiologist as well as right where he belongs Lumbar Spine Hip Doctor who is actually available is incredible! I've only visted the Richland office/clinic and he is the best Spinal Specialist I've had in a long time. I was treated 5 years ago, in a different town and it was a horrible experience. Before I hobbled in today, I had recently been noticing the last injections I had at same location start to wear off. Hips were treated today I almost made it a year but admittedly should have called around the beginning of the year to keep ahead of it instead trying to ingnore to the unbearable. I suffer from severe stenosis l4 l5 and am getting in as soon as next Monday! My hip pain is easing the back persists but only one week and I'll be a much nicer person, lol. A special shout out goes to PA Tyler and Nurse Bree for helping me walk again with ease today I had hip injections and it was not painful at all. Looking forward to my back injection. Lol, who really says that? Sincerely,
Lauri R
