THIS WOMAN IS AN ANGEL.
I usually am seen by Dr. Anita Shrivistava, though she is out on maternity leave. After reading great reviews of Dr. Shin, I decided to give her a try and I am happy I did! She was very accommodating, thorough, and listened to my questions and concerns. Appreciated her gentle bedside manner, also. Front desk wasn't the best. It's taken me three tries to call to make an appointment; finally I had to go on ZocDoc. The office wait wasn't terrible, but I waited at the window to be acknowledged for a solid 10 minutes.
The visit was very quick and easier- only 30 minutes for an annual check-up from when I entered the building to when I left! Being a first-time patient I was a little nervous. Nurse staff were not overly friendly, but nice enough. Would have liked time to sit down and meet the doctor / talk about needs before the check-up, which did not happen. Dr. Shin is very friendly and kind and makes you feel comfortable. Overall wonderful experience and I will definitely go back to Dr. Shin.
So kind, nice, caring, and professional. Made me feel so comfortable!! Really great doc.
She was great. Very helpful, friendly and professional.
Dr. Shin is great, makes you feel very comfortable & immediately at ease. She walks you thru any and all procedures & is very knowledgeable. The wait time is around 15 minutes, but she gets you out quickly. Would highly recommend!
Dr. Shin was fantastic! She is so sweet and friendly and made me feel extremely comfortable. She was also extremely fast but took time to listen to my questions and concerns. So happy to have found a great gyno in the city!
As always, Dr. Shin was amazing. She was very attentive, listening carefully to my many questions and offering solid advice. She really makes your visit comfortable. It's as if you are hanging out with a friend.
I went to Dr. Shin for a second-opinion. It turned out she was trained by my primary doctor at one time. After she learned that, she just kept asking me what my doctor had diagnosed, and then confirmed everything "made sense." She did not perform any related physical checkups on me during the visit, but made that conclusion solely based on our conversation. It was a waste of my time, money, effort, but most of all irresponsible.
LOVE Dr. Shin. Came in for an overdue annual, she was totally cool about it. Even gave me advice on something non-gynecological and was totally on point. Great energy, efficient and a pleasure to be seen by.
She's friendly, professional, and efficient (quick without making you feel like she's rushing you out). I've tried several gynecologists and she's definitely the best of the ones I've seen!
Dr. Shin was great. Very attentive and gave me long and thorough answers to all my questions. I did not have to wait long at all, contrary to many of the reviews!
Very friendly and helpful
Dr. Shin is really great - she's personable, professional and makes one feel comfortable.
This was my first appointment with Dr Shin and I have to say she made me and my husband feel so relieved and happy. This is our first (and only) baby and I am 41 so we had A LOT of fears and general questions about the pregnancy - Dr Shin was super patient, reassuring and personable. I appreciated her friendly, easy going style but she also knows her stuff so I feel completely safe with her as my OBGYN. The staff in the office are sweet and helpful. I waited about 15 mins max so no trouble there either.
So happy with Dr. Shin throughout the entire pregnancy and delivery! Great bedside manner and emotional understanding. Highly recommend, especially for first time mothers-to-be! Only con- the office phone system is awful and it can be hard to make appointments or get a person on phone.
Besides the long wait outside and inside the patient room, Dr. Shin makes the doc visit much less dreadful.
Always a nice trip to Dr. Shins! She's so sweet and personable. Makes a trip to the gyno more comfortable.
I love her.
She's just a super doctor. Love her. In person the support staff is lovely, though dealing with them on the phone has been very frustrating over the past couple of years. They don't get back. Don't follow up, etc. And the person who referred me to the practice has had the same experience. But we put up with it because of the doctor.
The wait time is ridiculous. Don't schedule people back to back if the office is gonna be running so late. We all have to work. So rude and unprofessional. I'll be looking for a new dr.
Dr. Shin was very attentive and considerate. She was clearly very skilled and knowledgeable. The wait time was long. 45 minutes in the waiting and 20 minutes in the exam room before the doctor entered. This was my first visit so this may have been an unusually busy day.
Dr. Shin is the best! Very professional and very easy to talk to.
I felt very comfortable and she addressed all my concerns.
Great bedside manner, personable, and efficient. Office staff were courteous. The office was busy and I ended up being seen at 220p for my 2p appt but Dr Shin takes her time to make sure you are taken care of.
She was fantastic! She was super nice and very easy to talk to! I will definitely be going back, and recommend her to all!
Dr. Shin is very personable and made sure that she was clear and detailed. She made a point to let me know I could contact her at any time in regards to the visit, and that was much appreciated.
She's great! Very upbeat, friendly and professional!
She has the time to listen and answer all your question you need !
This office is impossible. Waited 2+ hours to be seen. Have to call multiple times and be put on hold for 30 min every time before the phone is answered. The people in the office are not organized at all and get information mixed up. The doctors themselves seem to be ok.
Very helpful. Great doctor!
She was very thorough, informative, and attentive to all my concerns.
Dr. Shin was friendly and thorough. I was pleased with my visit and look forward to seeing her again in the future.
They called me in about 5 minutes after my appointment time (which I has scheduled literally the day before), and the nurse led me in to a clean room, took my blood pressure, and instructed me to pee in a cup to test for pregnancy. I got undressed and Dr. Shin was in right away. She addressed all the issues I had and gave all the recommendations that she could think of (I have IUD problems and insurance that doesn't cover any kind of birth control.) All examinations were carefully and thoroughly done. I usually don't fully trust my doctors but she seemed really knowledgeable. It was all a very streamlined and pleasant experience, and I would recommend her to anyone. The only complaint that I have is the size of the urine sample cups. Seriously got more pee on my hand than in the shot glass. TL;DR: A++, will go again.
Dr. Shin is warm, friendly and thorough. I'd definitely recommend her to others!
I really liked Dr. Shin. She was extremely nice and made me feel comfortable - even when delivering unpleasant news. I will continue to see her.
She was very detailed Knowledgable Great staff!!
Dr Shin was very helpful and I had an excellent experience at her office. It was my first time being there. Not only was her staff kind and professional, but also, offered advice and answered my many questions. Dr. Shin made me feel very comfortable and really seemed to take her time with me. She's a very nice doctor. I'll definitely be back. It feels great to finally find a good fit!
I love Dr Shin. She made imy check up very easy and relaxing.
I love Dr. Shin; she is personable, easy to talk to, knowledgeable and thorough. SHE is the only reason I continue to come back to the rudest staff I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with.
Dr. Shin is very approachable, which makes me comfortable talking about personal issues. She's also informative and answered my question in a confident manner. Wait time was about 15min, and the examination took about another 10-15min. Very efficient, but didn't feel rushed. Great doctor and will stick with her.
I started seeing Dr. Shin over 3 years ago for routine check ups, and about a year in, I had a PAP smear come back abnormal. After some more tests and a colposcopy, Dr. Shin recommended a having a LEEP procedure at her office to remove advanced pre-cancerous cells on my cervix, which meant removing part of my cervix. I had just turned 30, did not have any children but was married and had hopes of eventually getting pregnant. I was TERRIFIED. Dr. Shin was understanding and supportive, answering all my questions, and made the LEEP procedure as quick and painless as she could. A year later the cells have cleared and I'm healthy again, thanks to Dr. Shin. And I'm all clear to (hopefully) get pregnant soon!
It was wonderful! She is AMAZING!!!
Zocdoc reviewers don't lie- Dr. Shin was great. For a straightforward appointment she was quick and efficient but still took enough time to answer my questions and didn't make me feel rushed. The office staff were also polite and answered all my questions as well.
Dr. Shin seems great and nice until there's something actually wrong with you. When she found something during my last visit, she seemed to run right out of the room, despite me being obviously anxious. She was then impossible to get in touch with for another week, although I called many times and even visited the office in person. When she finally gave me a diagnosis, she gave me a very poor explanation of what was going on - which turned out to not be entirely correct. I ended up going to another doctor, where it became apparent that she either didn't read all of, or didn't understand, my scans. This has been an extremely stressful experience made so much worse by the way she handled it. Unless you're 100% sure that you're going to have just a standard visit, find another OBGYN.
The visit was quick, friendly, and painless. Dr. Shin was very nice and I'll continue seeing her in the future.
Every time I see Dr. Shin it's a better and better experience. She's incredibly nice and thoughtful explaining things and answering questions.
The best! She was very friendly and professional. I felt very comfortable at the office with everyone being attentive and friendly.
Dr. Shin was so lovely and easy to talk to. I would recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Shin was wonderful and I had an overall great experience at this office. One thing that kind of threw me off is that the walls are incredibly thin. While I was waiting for her to come in, I heard ALL the details of my neighbors medical condition. I would recommend you go here, but just keep your voice down if you're sensitive to that sort of thing.
Dr. Shin is not only professional, but also very warm and cheerful. She puts you at ease right away, and immediately conveys a "no judgement zone" -- I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great OBGYN!
I was extremely impressed with Dr. Shin. I was able to get an appointment right away. Once I arrived, I was helped immediately and never waited more than 5 to 10 minutes at any stage along the way. Dr. Shin was great! She was extremely friendly, sweet, and had excellent bedside manner. She was also one of the most gentle and quick gynecologists I have ever visited. 5 stars all the way!
She is awesome!!! Very warm and welcoming. The office is clean and the staff is very helpful!!! Def would recommend Dr. Shin to anyone.
This was my 2nd visit to doctor Shin. She is AMAZING! I'm so glad my co-worker recommended her. She is friendly, personable & very easy to talk to. She makes you feel very comfortable. Also, since I didn't have any questions, I was in and out in 30 min. including the blood test. Very easy! I will keep coming back.
Dr. Shin is extremely personable, and made the usual awkward and painful annual exam quick and painless. I would highly recommend her!
Very efficient and nice
I was referred to Dr. Shin by a male friend who works in pharmaceuticals. I was a bit skeptical at first because I had been seeing my previous OBGYN for +10 years (but I moved and needed a new doctor). Dr. Shin has excellent bedside manner which is the most important trait of an OBGYN. My husband and I were trying to get pregnant for months before seeing her and a few tips from her and we conceived in less than a month. After several months of routine visits with her, I began researching more natural methods of labor and childbirth (which I never thought I'd be interested in) and was a little nervous about how she felt about it but she was extremely supportive and suggested Bradley Method courses (which I am now taking) and she always recommends more natural methods of taking care of certain issues when I am hesitant about taking meds (i.e. eating Kefir and yogurts during signs of UTI development vs. antibiotics). I have every bit of confidence in her and have developed a great trusting relationship with her. Office wait times are not unusual -- expect to wait anywhere between 5 to 20 minutes in the waiting room. There have been a couple of occasions where I had to call her office back after not receiving a callback as was promised but that's not a big deal -- I mean if it's really a serious issue to you then you should call their office several times not just once and wait on them (but that's just my opinion). Dr. Shin is great about calling with test results no matter what and is great about explaining things and never makes you feel dumb when you ask a question.
Absolutely recommend Dr. Shin! Great, quick experience, but she's always thorough. Both professional and really sweet and nice and makes you feel comfortable and taken care of. This was my second visit and I'll continue to see her.
Excellent visit. She was very apologetic about the wait time, took her time and answered all my questions. Will continue to see her as my ob/gyn!
I highly recommend Dr. Shin she has great bedside manner she didnt rush my appt. answered all my concerns and did a thorough exam. She has a great personality and knows her stuff. I got this last minute appt through zocdoc the same morning. The wait from the waiting area into the room was short. My wait time for the doctor was a bit longer about 30 min the Doctor was apologetic about the time. I did not care I was glad I was accomodated and Dr. Shin is well worth the wait. The wait time wasn't an issue for me. I had taken the day off of work. I am glad I found her.
Dr Shin was really awesome and super easy to talk to but the lab technician was very surly and didnt even say "hello" just "sit there." She was very rude.
This was my first annual exam. I was terrified and anxious, and Dr. Shin was so sweet, understanding, gentle, & supportive. I highly highly recommend her!
You can tell she and the other healthcare professionals at the office care for their patients.
Dr. Shin is awesome! She answered all my questions and listened intently to some concerns I had. She was extremely friendly, professional and thorough. The staff working the front desk are not overly friendly and the wait time was about 15 minutes. Overall I could not recommend Dr. Shin highly enough!
Dr. Shin is wonderful. She takes her time to answer all the questions. I would highly recommend her!
She was so kind, quick, and efficient. I would definitely recommend her!
very kind, gives me enough time to ask all the questions I have. Also very professional.
She is the best! She makes you feel so comfortable, and she is so quick. I am always seen on time, and am in and out in a jiff.
I've lived in the city going on 8 years, I found Dr. Shin last summer and I love her! Even on a gross rainy day she made my appointment quick and easy!
The doctor was great and thorough. The staff at the office looked bored and were not very friendly.
fantastic, was dealing with a delicate matter that would've been way worse to deal with, had it not been for Dr. Shin's warmth and professionalism. thank you!!
Quick visit, but thorough. Also asked good questions to make sure we followed my insurance company's rules so I wouldn't get billed unnecessarily. Also the first time in my life I'd ever had a pap smear test that didn't hurt!
Dr Shin is amazing. Makes you feel totally comfortable and at ease. Definitely recommend!
I had recently moved to a different borough and seeing my OBGYN (of ten years) from Queens just wasn't working for me anymore. I finally decided to search for new doctors and Dr. Shin was recommended to me by a friend. I had my reservations because she looks very young but turns out she definitely knew her stuff and has great bedside manner (which is a must in this field). She took the time to answer every one of my family's questions and I'm so glad I found her! The medical staff was great too!
She is great, very helpful, fast and carrying! I highly recommend her.
I was a new patient and I've never been in and out so fast. even with all the paperwork! dr. shin was very friendly and addressed all of my concerns. highly recommended!
She was so sweet and really made the whole process much easier. Great bedside manner and very fast!
She is very friendly amazing service ! I am happy with her !
She made me so confortable and she definitely knew what she was doing.
She is very nice to talk to. Listens carefully to all the questions. Not in a hurry at all. I felt very comfortable and relaxed.
Dr. Shin was great. Finally, I have found a friendly, knowledgeable, and kind OBGYN in NYC! My appointment started 20 minutes after I was scheduled (only negative), but otherwise Dr. Shin was very efficient and I will definitely recommend her to friends.
I did not have a very pleasant experience overall. The answers Dr. Shin gave me were fairly elementary and quick; she did not inquire further about my specific "PMS" symptoms to allow me to explore different treatment options moving forward. The staff was not entirely helpful, and I was given attitude by a couple of the attendants between getting my annual exam and a blood test. More care should be given to patients in such an environment.
I had an appointment with Dr. Shin entirely by accident but she turned out to be great! She really listened and responded to my concerns and paranoias concerning my pregnancy. I felt very comfortable with her and did not feel rushed or dismissed at any point. If I didn't have to move I would definitely keep her as my obstetrician.
Very happy with her and have made her my to go to gynecologist - she is responsive, accommodating and seems to know what she is doing
Dr. Shin was the best! My friend referred me to her and said she was the best one shes come across. And after my appointment today I would have to agree with her. She was very kind, great personality, made you feel at ease, and most importantly, knowledgable. She answered all my questions thoroughly and made necessary suggestions. But she was also quick. I loved my experience with Dr. Shin. She will be my new regular gyno!
I hate an obgyn visit. But Dr. Shin made me feel so comfortable. She is amazing!
I thought Dr. Shin was easy to communicate with and very professional and knowledgeable.
I love DR. SHIN! she's the best. the staff in the blood lab though, they're a little short and rude.. not the best bedside manner
Wonderful! She speaks really quickly, but that is the only even slightly negative thing I have to say about Dr. Shin.
As always, Dr. Shin made me feel comfortable and taken care of. She is easy to talk to and I trust her advice.
Front desk staff was cold and rude. Dr. Shin was nice but rushed my appointment, which I waited over an hour to see her. Would not come back here.
She was amazing, super professional and friendly. Also very informative !
Dr. Shin is so amazing. She is so lovely, and very knowledgeable. She gives you her full attention, is very thorough and takes time to answer all your questions.
She is, hands-down, one of the best gynaecologists I have ever had. I trust her implicitly, and it's always a pleasure to see her.
Office is very clean. Staff is friendly. Dr Shin is great.
Excellent doctor, I recommend her to all my friends.
She was very warm and was interested in getting to know me. She also answered all of my questions very knowledgeably.
She is lovely and so is her office staff. The only reason I'm switching doctors is because I switched insurance carriers and she is no longer in network for me. : (
Very friendly, made me feel comfortable. There was a wait, but was not annoying or too long. I would recommend Dr. Shin!
Dr. Shin is great. The wait time was a little long, but everyone was apologetic, and I understand that sometimes these things are just unavoidable. She is friendly, informative and thorough with her exams and takes the time to answer all of your questions. Highly recommended! Have been going to this office for a couple of years and will continue to keep going here.
Dr. Shin is amazing!!! Very respectful, willing to listen and careful with the examinations.
It was great. She's awesome!
Other people seemed to not have much wait, so I think something got mixed up with me in particular. At least the office was pleasant. Anyway, once I got in to see Dr. Shin, she was very professional and efficient. I was there to discuss birth control options and appreciate that she was not judgmental about me not wanting kids ever.
She is fantastic. Caring and a great listener.
I arrived 5 mins late for my appt and the staff was rude to me. They didn't tell me whether or not the doctor would see me or how long I'd have to wait. Once I was with the doctor, I felt comfortable enough. The one complaint I had was that I felt really rushed. I had questions about new medication and she just rushed through all the answers and didn't really make sure that I was ok with it. I must've spent 10 mins with the doctor total.
Dr Shin always makes you feel comfortable. I always look forward to seeing her.
She was lovely! Very easy to talk to!
Dr. Shin is very personable and knowledgable.
Dr. Shin was very pleasant, caring and made me feel comfortable. She took her time during the visit and treated me like a friend and not a patient.
It was a pleasure. She is very knowledgable and thorough.
Dr. Shin was great. Very friendly and nice. Her staff was a bit rude though
Always very friendly and makes you feel comfortable. The only downside is that I feel like she is always in a rush- but what doctor isnt these days?
Makes you feel very comfortable and is very helpful when asked questions!
My visit was good. She seemed a bit rushed, however she answered all my questions.
She listened to my concerns and explained possible reasons. She was personable and pleasant. As uncomfortable as I am when i have to go she made the appointment quick easy and pleasant!
As usual, I always have a great doc visit with Dr. Deborah Shin. She has excellent bedside manner, listens and responds to all your concerns, and allows you to ask tons of questions. I've recommended her to two of my friends.
I thought dr. Shin was very pleasant and although she was running late (I waited an hour), she didn't make me feel rushed and she apologized for the wait time. She gave authoritative, but understandable advice and was a good listener.
Very impressed with the overall experience! Dr. Shin is a sweet woman and makes you feel comfortable. The staff is well organized. I had a yearly exam and was out in less than 40 min AND I was a new patient so I had all that new patient paperwork to fill out.
Dr Shin is great! She took her time while talking to me and is so sweet. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!
Excellent eye contact, firm handshake, explained everything in non medical jargon. Age appropriate recommendations. Friendly n excellent skill performing tasks.
She's a great doctor- truly puts you at ease and answers all of your questions without rushing. Highly recommend.
Dr. Shin was great !!!
She is very sweet and approachable. This was my second time seeing her and she is very good at putting you at ease so that you feel comfortable asking her about anything.
I did not have a long wait at all ( 5 minutes max). Dr. Shin is very efficient! I highly recommend her.
Dr. Shin's bedside manner is like no other. She makes you feel comfortable and at ease at once. She is also a great resource of information, particularly when it came to giving referrals. She had an arsenal of providers in her head. She's lovely, professional, friendly, and well knowledged in her field.
Dr. Shin is cheerful, helpful, and delightful. She makes an ordinarily uncomfortable check up run as smooth as possible.
Personable & professional. Quick but thorough exam.
Very nice and friendly but didn't seem to listen to my desires about changing my bc. Wound up with the same one I was on before.
The people at the front desk can be friendlier but Dr. Shin is great!
Well let's see, she is COMPLETELY AWESOME. She genuinely cares about her patients (ie. follow up phone calls, positive attitude, factual information) and she successfully delivered my son.
Dr shin is professional without a clinical demeanor. Easy to talk to about issues without feeling uncomfortable. First visit am impressed. Less than 20 minutes wait and in my neighborhood.
I have had an awful experience with Dr. Shin and with this practice - the worst I have ever experienced in a Drs. office, by far. After an abnormal exam, Dr. Shin left an alarmist message on my voicemail and was then unable to be reached for several days. Furthermore, she failed to clarify the biopsy procedure that I was to have and as a result, I showed up to the appointment completely unaware that I was about to undergo an extremely uncomfortable treatment. I should have left the practice right then and there but decided to stay to give her another chance and see the treatment through. When I came back 6 months later for a follow-up exam (they left a message saying I was due for a regular pap) the receptionist had no idea why I was there. After several minutes of fumbling and asking around, she told me I was there for another (painful) procedure. This again was not even remotely communicated to me. Dr. Shin tried to explain but nevertheless failed to come even remotely close to communicating the treatment needs and trajectory, not to mention get me to trust her to do this kind of procedure again. Needless to say, I wasn't about to continue treatment with this Dr. or with this practice so I promptly took my files and left. I hope that Dr. Shin and the staff at this practice can learn from these extremely unprofessional mistakes before they before truly harmful.
Dr. Shin was wonderful. She is a total sweetheart. Quick and efficient. Highly recommend!
Dr. Shin was knowledgeable, quick, and friendly. She made my first OB/GYN visit a great experience by sitting after my exam and answering my questions. She made sure I was comfortable the entire time. Dr. Shin explained what she was going to do before she did anything, as well as explained what she was checking on. I've already recommended Dr. Shin to friends new to the City, and I'm definitely going back to her!
Dr. Shin is super nice and very professional. I would definitely recommend her.
I had an amazing experience. She was recommended to me by friends/coworkers and I immediately felt comfortable and at ease. She answered all my questions and spent a good amount of time with me chatting about my concerns etc. I will definitely be returning to her as needed.
She is very nice and easy to talk to.
She is always so attentive and lovely.
She was wonderful. Polite, friendly, and outgoing.
The office staff was efficient and professional. Dr. Shin was also efficient - answering questions in detail, explaining all steps in the process but also moving quickly which was appreciated.
The facilities are a bit dated, but Dr. Shin was excellent.
She's amazing! The best Gynecologist I have seen. She makes you super comfortable and is very skill with all the procedure. Super fast as well :)
Caring, conservative, and very professional. She knew exactly what she was doing and didnt make anything more akward than it already was. She worked quickly and effeciently to figure out my problem and got me out as soon as possible. It made me feel even more relaxed at how open she was, always asking if i had any questions.
Dr Shin was incredibly courteous and I found her very reassuring - she listened to my concerns and I felt I was really being listened to. I am definitely going to go back to her!
It was fine. She was professional enough but office was over crowded and examining room seem dingy. Not what I would call a pleasant experience but nothing that I would say was bad. Just meh.
It was excellent. She was very warm and personable. She answered all my questions knowledgeably and she made me feel comfortable to ask her whatever I was unsure about. I had an annual pelvic exam and Pap smear and she made sure to keep me abreast of everything she was doing and everything I would feel while she was doing it so I wouldn't be alarmed. I would highly recommend her to other people.
She was great!
Really great doctor, I hate going to the gynecologist but she had great bedside manner and her staff was professional.
Dr. Shin is wonderful - down-to-earth, pragmatic, and responsive. I highly recommend her.
As always is it was perfect! Cannot recommend her enough...
I was shown into an examination room almost immediately but had to wait there for about 15 mins. No problem. Dr Shin was really warm & friendly and although the exam was quick it was thorough and I felt completely at ease asking her any questions, etc. Highly recommend!
She was so nice and caring. Asked a bunch of questions and had no problem answering all the questions that I had.
Other than the wait, Dr. Shin was quick yet thorough, and informative. I did not feel rushed, and she addressed all my concerns. Once I was actually brought back to the exam room, I did not wait long at all for Dr. Shin, the majority of my wait time was consumed in the waiting room.
Very friendly doctor. She is efficient, yet thorough.
Warm doctor who explains things clearly. She is efficient but not rushed. The employees are nice and efficient, as well. I highly recommend her.
Very helpful and smart and good bedside manner
Dr. Shin is fantastic! So considerate and knowledgeable! I highly recommend her!
Dr. Shin was great! Super personable and knowledgable, she answered all my questions and even personally called to get me a follow up appointment for separate tests.
Dr. Deborah Shin is great. She's fast and make you feel quite comfortable. I will definitely recommend her.
She is very professional and excellent bedside manners.
Kind, professional, very personable. Highly recommended.
Great....thorough but efficient ??
Dr. Shin is amazing!
I had my 1st visit with Dr. Shin yesterday. It was just an annual visit, but I really liked her! She made was very warm and friendly, which made me feel comfortable right away. She came highly recommended by a friend of mine, and I'm so thankful! After 7 years of searching for an OB-GYN that I like, I think I've found a keeper! :)
Dr Shin was amazing! I usually hate going to the doctor, but after seeing Dr. Shin, she's the new gold standard for Doctors in my opinion. She had great bedside manner, was incredibly professional, communicative, understanding, patient, all around a great doctor. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Shin was professional, competent and efficient. She was friendly, made eye contact and expressed genuine interest. Ob/Gyn visits are never very pleasant, but she made the best of it. I completely trust her.
Doctor Shin was amazing. She took the time to know you & understand your concerns. But her staff would be the only bad rating that I would give Doctor Shin. Her staff are very unprofessional. I am a nurse & realized the assistant took my blood pressure incorrectly. I hope Doctor Shin reevulaute her staff because they didn't make me feel very welcomed.
It was great! My first GYN visit. She's completely friendly, pleasant and professional. I felt very comfortable with her as she answered any questions I had, and explained all the procedures to me. I was in and out in 1 hour with an annual examination and blood test.
very nice and genuine.
Whenever I come to see her, i have to wait for her more than 20 minutes. I am pregnant, and feel uncomfortable waiting her for that long time. Even, i saw the waiting list that someone had an appointment with her at the same time i was supposed to see her. I don't think that double appointments would be a good idea.
the people at reception were terrific and she was friendly, professional and warm
My fiance went to see Dr. Shin in order to get a new prescription for birth control. Dr. Shin's office never called in the prescription to the pharmacy, and my fiance tried calling Dr. Shin's office daily but they never took care of it. It took her two weeks to get a person on the phone at Dr. Shin's office, and because of all of this my fiance was unable to stay on schedule with taking her birth control. She has to start this month a week late, which will throw off her entire cycle, as well as delaying the full efficacy of the birth control meds. She will definitely be finding a new gynecologist the next time she needs one.
I love Dr. Shin. She is very professional and knowledgeable. On top of it all, she makes going to the doctor fun.
I can't recommend Dr. Shin enough. She was easy to talk to, took time to answer questions, and incredibly thorough. I'm so glad to have FINALLY found a great OB-GYN in NYC.
Pap smears can be uncomfortable, but Dr. Shin made the procedure as quick and painless as possible. in the span of one hour, I filled out all forms, my vitals were taken by a nurse, and the pap smear was done. Great experience, though a little impersonal.
The staff is fantastic and I was in and out in under 30 minutes. Extremely efficient, professional, and friendly.
I love her Dr Shin!!! She's very pleasant and prompt.
Dr. Shin is the best doctor I've seen in New York - and I've seen quite a few. She is very understanding, while not alarmist or excessively cautious which has been amazingly reassuring during my first pregnancy. She is warm and caring as well as knowledgeable. I will be sure to recommend her to any of my friends who need an OB.
I have been going to Dr Shin for over a year now and she is great. She takes the time to talk and understand your concerns and is thorough in her exams.
I was taken into the operatory 10 mins after I arrived but then the nurse asked me to put on the patient coat and wait for the doctor. I waited like that for more than 20 mins in a room that was freezing. Secondly, the doctor told me that she was going to call me in a week to tell me the result of my pap smear. It has been 2 weeks and I still have not heard back from her. I called her office a few times but was not able to reach anyone. Still waiting....
She was extremely warm and professional. She made me feel comfortable, was extremely timely, and a lovely person. I highly recommend her.
She was very friendly and asked me lots of questions before she began her exam. I felt comfortable speaking with her and would recommend her to anyone looking for a new doctor.
Dr. Shin is great, efficient but happy to answer questions. I will say though, that the reception and phlebotomy staff could work on their customer service skills. Before getting my blood drawn, there were three women arguing over the color and number of tubes they were supposed to fill with blood. It did not inspire confidence. Similarly, the front desk clerk checked me in, but failed to inform me that I would have to wait for 20 minutes to see the doctor. When I asked what was going on, she finally checked and I was called in the next minute. All I can says is: patient satisfaction, ladies, patient satisfaction.
I loved the practice and I really loved her. She listened to my concernes and questions and was super informative.
She made me feel very comfortable. Was quick yet efficient.
Young, friendly, competent, straight-forward.
First time with Dr Shin today- super professional, friendly, and willing to answer any questions. Goes above and beyond to ensure you're up to date on everything- shots included! (Ouch) :p
Super nice - made me feel really comfortable. Easy to talk to
Had a lovely first visit with Dr. Shin for an annual. She is sweet, knowledgeable and made me feel very at ease. Wait time was only 5 minutes - was in and out in less than half an hour! Highly recommend.
Doctor was friendly, quick and knowledgable.
Dr Shin is friendly, thorough and very informative. She will answer all of your questions and makes her patients feel comfortable. She's great!
I love her! Made me feel very comfortable and was very easy to talk to, very professional, very nice.
She is a really great doctor. My visit was quick this time because I really didn't have questions, but she is great to sit and talk with you if you do have them. Quick, easy and painless. I've already recommended her to a friend who loves her just as much as I do.
She was extremely sweet, relatable and made me feel comfortable, I will definitely continue to see her.
She was awesome! She answered all of my questions without having the feeling like I was 1 out of 20 patients she sees a day. I got personal attention, thorough answers to my questions, and I feel like I found an awesome doctor. I'd highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new OBGYN.
Deborah is a great pick, especially for women in their twenties or thirties. She is very professional and respectful, but friendly and funny too. This combination of characteristics made it very easy for me to feel comfortable speaking with her and asking questions.
She is professional and knowledgeable.
Dr. Shin was exceptional. I HATE having my annual appointment, and she made me feel super comfortable, telling me everything she was doing and how it was going to feel. I didn't feel like I had to ask her to be gentle, she just read my anxiety. She was chatty, which I like, and I was in and out which I also like. I will definitely stick with Dr. Shin.
Dr Shin was sweet and easy to talk to. She was patient with my questions and knew my chart information well, before walking in.
I had to wait for a long time which was annoying, but she was really great and SO much more pleasant than any other gyno i've ever gone to! )
Dr Shin is amazing. She came highly recommended by friends and I was extremely happy with my first experience.
Great visit. Very professional and did not feel rushed but was in and out. Definitely recommend Dr Shin
I was a first-time patient, and was extremely satisfied! Found a great new doctor, in a beautiful, convenient location. Dr Shin was incredibly kind and helpful, and I look forward to developing a relationship with her.
My visit with Dr. Shin is always a pleasant one. She's so nice & very caring. She makes me very comfortable. She makes sure that I always know what's going on and what I need to do. I wouldn't change GYN Doctors.
She is always professional and keeps me very well informed. She explains everything she does, is always courteous and helpful.
Dr. Shin is extremely friendly and nice. She makes the patient feel comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Shin to all my friends!
She's the best!
Dr Shin is a lovely doctor, very easy to speak with and thorough in her examinations.
Brief but friendly
Dr. Shin was fantastic. She took the time to listen to me and discuss my health history etc. The receptionist at the office provided less than stellar service though. She was too busy chatting with her coworkers to answer questions I had about paperwork.
Dr. Shin was very nice, not at all intimating. This was my first time to the gyno and she never made me feel uncomfortable. I was also able to ask any questions, she was very helpful!
Visit was very quick, but did not feel rushed. She answered all my questions and I was in and out in no time.
I chose Dr. Shin based on her high reviews on Zoc Doc. I also wanted a female doctor who I could feel comfortable voicing any concerns relating to women's health. The moment I met with Dr. Shin, I felt immediately at ease. I felt comfortable asking her questions that might be embarrassing. She also gave me great advice on preparing myself if I wanted to consider the parenthood route. I also liked that Dr. Shin is closer to my age just for the relatable factor that I look for in a doctor.
Dr. Shin was professional and efficient. She wasn't particularly warm but I felt confident in her care. The front desk staff were also efficient and there was almost no wait time.
Dr. Shin is a very kind and extremely friendly doctor. She explains everything and addresses all your questions and concerns. I highly recommend her.
It was my first time seeing Dr. Shin. She was so very nice, and I felt like she really listened when I spoke & actually had a conversation with me about my health. I wasn't rushed at all either, which is unusual in a doctor's office! I will be back.
As a new patient I had some tasks to take care of which delayed me getting in the room. Organized and friendly. Thank God!
I think Dr Shin is great! She took time with me and I didn't feel rushed like I have other doctors in NYC. She really listened and cared and no doubt will I continue to go to her for my annual visit.
Dr. Shin is an awesome doctor. Very sweet, understanding , and professional!
Very enthusiastic and professional. Made you feel welcome even as a first time patient.
My name somehow got lost in the line up which explains my long wait, however, they were extremely apologetic and nice. I would definitely go back.
Dr Shin was very sweet, friendly, and efficient. Her office staff were also pleasant and helpful.
Dr. Shin was nice, sweet, attentive and listened to my needs. I was more than happy with my visit. Added plus, I got there filler out my paper work and was immediately called in and scene.
Besides the long wait (40 minutes but not sure if that's a normal occurrence) the visit was pleasant. Dr. Shin was super nice and very willing to answer any questions I had. I plan to return next year for my annual and would easily recommend her to my friends.
Dr. shin is absolutely fantastic. Her staff is friendly and efficient. I was in and out, right on time. Dr. Shin sat and talked with me, answered all of my questions and was very knowledgeable. Can't say enough great things!
This was my first visit with Dr. Shin. She was great, thorough, and listened. I waited about :20 minutes after my scheduled appt. in waiting area but for me was actually longer because I arrived :15 minutes early to fill out new patient forms. Once inside and after vitals, I waited another :10 minutes for Dr. Shin to arrive. When she finally came in, she immediately apologized for the long wait, which made me feel better. I will go back to her and hope the wait is less next time around.
I was pleasantly surprised to meet Dr. Shin who has a lovely bedside manner and was very attentive.
Dr. Shin was super easy to talk to and so nice. I had selected her because of her other positive reviews, and they are right on. Would definitely recommend her to anyone else!
I'll see her again. Very easy to talk to.
She's an excellent doctor. Very professional, gentle and caring. Her beside manner made me feel very comfortable. After a long search I feel like I've finally found the one!
Best initial visit ever. The staff were very polite and Dr. Shin was so friendly and made me feel very comfortable. She was nonjudgmental and didn't seem at all rushed. Highly recommended!
I really love Dr. Shin. She's super easy to talk to, listens but still manages to be very efficient, which, if you live in New York, you'll appreciate. During my visit, something from the staff took a long time and she was very apologetic.
Dr. Shin was incredibly nice and easy to talk to. I felt immediately comfortable with her and was so glad I made the appointment.
Dr. Shin is incredibly friendly, and even if you have sort of stupid questions, she acts like they're completely reasonable. The pap was quick and as painless as they get (haha), she made sure to tell me when and how I would get the results back (i.e., she'd call if something was up, otherwise I'd get a letter - it came really quickly!). I also ended up seeing another doctor at the same practice a month or two later (Dr. Shin was on maternity leave) and he was also friendly, professional, and talked me through my concerns. I recommend this practice 100%.
Love Dr Shin, great bedside manner, very informative, always wanted to know what questions or problems I have. Happy to have her as my OB and would gladly recommend her.
This doctor is pleasant, informative, and really willing to talk to you about all of your options. I went to her for birth control, and she talked me through the risks of each option, how they work, and didn't rush me out when I asked silly questions. She sat with me for 30+ minutes to explain everything.
I had filled out my first time patient paperwork online so there was virtually no wait. Dr. Shin came in within a few minutes of my changing into gown. She is friendly, direct and a usually unpleasant experience was made easier and quick by her. She's lovely.
Dr. Shin was very professional, direct, and knowledgeable. My exam was gently and efficiently performed.
I love her! she was very sweet and thorough and look forward to keeping her as my doctor for a long time!
She made me feel very comfortable and answered all of my questions.
Lovely young doctor. She is definately a keeper. Pleasant, and efficient!
Dr. Shin is one of the best and her staff could not have been nicer!
Deborah is fantastic. I can't recommend her highly enough. I am pretty much the worst when it comes to anything medical but Deborah is understanding, reassuring and friendly.
She is really great. Listens, answers questions, very very patient and didn't make me feel stupid for asking questions that other gynos though were stupid. Will def go back.
Dr. Deborah Shin was incredibly professional, honest and just all around pleasant. My visit went exceptionally well and it was so much faster than I had expected. Great, comfy environment; I am definitely returning to Dr.Shin's office in the future.
She's so warm and easy to talk to-- she was attentive, honest and to the point.
She was incredibly friendly and made me feel completely at ease! I loved her:)
I got a pap test, and it was so painful. I asked my friend and she said it was not painful at all.I think she needed to use whatever fits my body.Sorry but I don't wanna go back.
She was knowledgeable enough, but did not have the bedside manner I was looking for. I also found the offices to feel a bit dated and dirty.
Dr Shin is a good doctor. She listens her patients and tries to help. Sometimes, she looks a little bit in the rush but all the doctors are in NYC!
I arrived early to ensure new patient paperwork was completed on time so that my appointment would begin on time and the receptionist seemed annoyed that I was asking her to do this before she was ready. I was done 10 minutes after the apppointment time and Dr. Shin was great and did not keep me waiting but could have been out of there ten minutes earlier.
She manages to be both professional and warm at the same time. I really enjoyed my visit with her!
Really wonderful to work with- addressed all my concerns thoughtfully and with a positive attitue. I didn't feel rushed at all. Highly recommended!
I hate going to drs let alone OBGYNs but she was amazing! Super friendly, very casual and while it was quick and efficient, I didn't feel like I was being rushed out. I highly recommend!
Dr. Shin is the most empathetic and kind doctor. She is knowledgeable and always listens to my every concern. Have no fears, she's great!
Dr. Shin was very pleasant. I arrived early and was seen early. I would recommend her.
Dr. Shin was very friendly and there was almost no wait time; this is by far the best experience I've had at a doctor in Manhattan.
Dr. Shin was very thorough and welcoming. I felt comfortable right away and felt that the office was a non-judgement area. A great gyno for young women.
We loved Dr. Shin! Wonderful care throughout our pregnancy. And she delivered our son with tremendous care, professionalism, compassion, and humor! The other doctors in her practice are also great.
I felt comfortable asking questions and received thorough answers. Did not feel rushed to get done with my appointment.
I really enjoyed my initial appointment with Dr. Shin. She was really nice and attentive. I work in healthcare and bedside manners go a long way, especially with limited time, you either trust them or don't right away. I liked that she was thorough with her questions. The wait time was not long, though the front desk staff seemed cold and not as friendly as the MD. I don't think anyone made eye contact with the patients that came in after me. I was a bit put-off, especially since they're the first faces you meet. The lab tech was nice and cool. Suffice to say, don't judge an office by the receptionist. Best to meet the doctor and go from there =)
Dr. Shin is wonderful. Always pleasant, informative and wants you to ask questions, no matter how big or small.
Dr. Shin was great! She was very friendly and patient. I would highly recommend her!
The appointment itself was fine, it was the followup that is terrbile. I saw Dr. Shin a month ago and since then have called at least 4 times to find out my important test and smear results. All times I have been told that a message has been left and that I would get a call back. I have yet to get a call back and am understandably irritated by this lack of respect for a patient.
She was rude and acted rushed. She didn't take my worries or questions seriously.
Made me feel really comfortable.. she was easy to talk to and genuinely seemed interested in what I had to say and my well-being
Fantastic conversation and input, while being knowledgable and providing insight. Took the time to get to know me and made suggestions from there! Really enjoyed my visit, will definitely be back again.
I adore Dr.Shin! She is so smart and caring! A truly talented young woman and a really wonderful doctor.
Nice, patient, and quick. What else can you ask for?
I have to admit, I was 20 minutes late, but that didn't seem to matter - I filled out paperwork and was seen right after finishing it. All in all I was in and out of the office in less than an hour. Everyone in the office including Dr. Shin were extremely nice, patient, and accommodating. Dr. Shin herself answered my questions thoroughly and professionally. I would recommend her to anyone, and I'm glad ZocDoc recommended me to her.
Dr. Shin is very friendly, warm, and considerate. Great doctor!
She was professional and compassionate. Very helpful and I had all my questions answered right away.
Great. Made me feel very comfortable.
Dr. Shin was great! She has a wonderful bedside manner and is very thorough and complete. She made me feel very comfortable for a first time patient. I only had to wait a few minutes for Dr. Shin, but getting blood taken was a whole other issue. The lab technician was extremely rude, abrupt and unprofessional. By the time I got back to my office, blood was dripping down my arm and I had a bruise the size of my fist. I would still go back and would recommend Dr. Shin, but I will wear protective gear before getting bloodwork again!
Despite reading not-so-positive reviews on West Care Medical, I had a good experience with my visit. I had to wait a few minutes before I saw Dr. Deborah Shin but she got me in and out of there pretty quickly. She was personable and made me at ease.
Dr. Shin was great. She was very nice, took her time and answered all of my questions. The wait time was a bit long, but she apologized for that when she first walked into the room.
Dr Shin is the best ! Highly recommended !
I absolutely loved Dr. Shin. I've been batting a few issues for months now with my previous OB-GYN with mediocre response, so I thought it was time to get a second opinion. Dr. Shin's bedside manner is terrific - she listened thoroughly, made me feel at ease, and was very genuine. I highly recommend her.
She was very intuitive, warm, and focused on me. She took time to listen to and address my concerns and respected my choices. The only reason I wouldn't give the 5 star recommendation is because of the office staff who seemed extremely unfriendly.
Dr. Shin was very friendly, non-dismissive and very helpful. I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Shin is AMAZING!
She was warm and caring. She was also very professional and thorough.
Dr. Shin was fantastic. I would highly recommend her. She was very nice and put me right at ease.
Dr. Shin was very friendly, quick, and accommodating. The only qualm I had with my visit was that the lab technician who took my blood sample was rude to me and when I requested that she take blood from my non-dominant arm she refused and was very short with me.
My appt was at the end of the day so the other staff seemed a little hurried, but other than that everything was great. I was in and out in about 30 minutes, with not too much waiting time. Dr. Shin is really pleasant, as well as knowledgeable and efficient. Awesome! Glad she is my doctor.
The visit was GREAT and personable as per usual, but the wait time wasn't her fault. I got there at 1237 instead of my appt for 1230 so I guess they had scooted people ahead of me and so I had to wait, but whatever. I had my visit and it went off without a hitch! :) She's a great doctor
Doctor Shin is on her way to becoming my favorite doctor :) She is very knowledgable, nice, and studies your case before your visit. The wait time at the office is minimal, especially compared to other OBGYNs and everything is very organized. Her staff also could not be friendlier and more professional. Overall, my visit was a much more pleasant experience than any other doctor I've been to (including my previous OBGYN). I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a solid, trustworthy and intelligent doctor.
She has a wonderful, professional bedside manner. She listens and gives thoughtful advice. I have not found another doctor with such positive energy!
Dr. Shin was amazing - so warm and nice. The wait time wasn't any worse than your typical doctor's appointment - about 15 to 20 minute wait. I went for my yearly exam. She took a brief history, asked if you have any questions, and then after my exam I was able to do my lab work on the spot and was out of there within an hour. I will go back to her again!
She was very attentive and personable. she asked a lot of questions and was very thorough with her check up. very friendly. i'd definitely recommend her to my friends.
My first time visit with Dr. Shin was really great! She made me feel comfortable and covered all the bases. Blood work is done in the same office which is so convenient!
She was very clear, thorough and efficient.
She is very amiable and makes you feel comfortable. She is also very knowledegeable. One of the best, if not the best doctor I've ever met.
Dr. Shin is an excellent skilled physician. She took a complete and thorough history and answered all my questions. The exam was quick and comfortable. The office staff is lovely. Added bonus: they do their own lab draws there so if you need blood work you don't have to schlep to a Quest Lab -- this is a *big* plus.
She was very sweet and answered every question I had. Made me feel comfortable.
She was awesome and answered all the questions and concerns I had. I highly recommend Dr. Shin!
D. Shin was great. She was very thorough and it was obvious that she cares about the well being of her patients. Although most gyn exams can be awkward for some people, she made me feel very comfortable.
