I was shocked when I was told I would be seen at the time of my appointment. I was in and out within 30 min.. full exam.. bloodwork and urinalysis.. script was called in once i left and was able topick my medicine up across the street within a few min. Daniel the ma/phleb. was quick with the bloodwork.. efficient office and Dr Shum was amiable and thorough. The office staff were professional and didn't skip a beat.

Knowledgeable & friendly. But reserved & is fairly quick with his visits (wish he would take more time to explain his diagnosis, what my options for treatment are, etc.). Also, I noticed there was a billing error in which I wascharged for something that did not occur. I emailed Dr. Shum and he was very responsive & said he would fix the error. However, if I hadn't dug into my EOB, I would not have noticed the error to begin with. Patients should not have to worry about the doctor's office messing up billing coding for a routine visit.

He and his office was very quick and efficient. None of the fancy nonsense, so I was in and out in no time--which is exactly what I needed for my busy schedule. Also, I had filled out the online form beforeI got there and took the time to go over it with me in case I missed something. He is throughout, and even made a few suggestions if I felt I ever needed them without pushing any drugs/specialists down my throat. I will be seeing him again.

Friendly, helpful, professional personnel; I had a 9:30 appointment and didn't have to wait at all. Dr. Shum was his usual competent self and didn't rush; we talked about a couple of concerns of mine and were done. Samples for labwork were completed within 15 minutes. I couldn't ask for an easier annual physical experience. Highly recommended.

I originally sought him out 15 years ago mainly because of the proximity to my office. Because he's a great physician, I've remained his patient despite my employment location all around the city. I've also recommended several friends and family members, each with positive experiences.

One could say I'm a bit paranoid about health issues. Dr. Shum patiently and calmly answers all my questions and addresses my concerns. He also makes himself very reachable and is very responsive. He obviously has great credentials, which arebacked up by a quiet confidence in his medical advise. A truly caring healthcare professional!

I went for my annual physical to Dr. Chum. The appointment itself was fine and Dr. Chum was overall very nice. My only complaint is that the Dr. never sent me my blood test results, despite assuring me he would. Ifollowed up 4-5 times (calls and emails) over the course of 3-4 months and I never heard back. I ended up having to take another blood test because another of my doctors wanted to see the result. It made me question whether Dr. Chum actually paid to have the blood tested or not, because it was a fairly simple request and should have been handled easily by his office.
