I came to Dr. Shum for a couple things I needed taken care of quickly (physical for new job, traveling oversees). He was very quick and efficient, and did everything I asked with no problems. Even better, I recently moved awayand haven’t been able to get a new local doctor yet, and he’s been prescribing medications for me from afar after I emailed him - and he did it instantly! (He must check his email often to keep on top of patients). I really appreciate his help!

Best experience I have had with a doctor. I got to the office five minutes before my appointment and was seen at the exact appointment time. Dr Shum has a calm demeanor and makes me feel super comfortable. He is alsovery efficient. I was able to run to my appointment and run back to work in less than one hour. I highly recommend Dr Shum, especially if you have a busy schedule.
