He is very knowledgeable and patient. His office is friendly and efficient and has connections with a wide range of doctors’ offices for easy referral. On a personal note, I have very thin blood veins, but the male nurse in hisoffice is amazing and never had to pick me twice to draw blood.

Dr. Shum was fantastic. However, the medical professional who drew my blood for labwork was not. She was dressed in casual street clothes and didn't put on gloves. She apologized about the latter, but it was still disconcerting.

Turbo speed, 10 minutes total (heart test, blood pressure, eye test etc. general physical). I'm not sure if it's good or bad, particularly that it was my first visit with the Doctor who is to be my PCP.... Didn't ask allthe questions because everything was going so fast. Sometimes it would be good to ask the patient if there's anything they are not sure about or don't understand... Otherwise, all cool. Had some comprehensive tests done today.

Good experience. Slightly far from the subway station, but manageable. Doctor was efficient, professional, and well mannered. Great experience overall except phlebotomist was rude and did a very poor job drawing blood. Seemed like she was only an intern and really didn't care about the patients.

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.
