John Botelho – New Port Richey, FL
Over the past few years, I have had several problems with my lower back and more recently my neck. When I initially asked my GP what doctor he would trust for any orthopedic surgery or advice, he did not hesitate to recommend Dr. John Shim. He is a Doctor who takes the time to examine every aspect of your problem and does not immediately take you from the office to an operating room, nor does he through a load of prescriptions at you until something works. Instead he looks for less evasive treatments to reduce your pain and explains in detail what will be the next steps as you proceed under his care. In my case, a local cortisone shot was all I needed, and I was not pressured into any kind of repeat visits or physical therapy, like so many other physicians make a living from. His staff is pleasant and very knowledgeable and I never have to wait longer than 15 minutes in his office. It is for these reasons, I recommend Dr. John Shim.
