I was so impressed! The Medical Assistants and Dr. Shin were absolutely incredible. They listened. They were clear. They explained why they were doing what they were doing, and answered questions completely and patiently. Even though I had a minor injury and was not looking for a surgeon, they didn't rush through my appointment and really took the time to not only address the main reason I'd come in, but answer questions about a related symptom I was having on my other arm. I've had very few visits to a doctor's office that were like this.

Dr. Shin was awesome! I waited JUST over 30 minutes for my appointment (which seems kind of par for the course at most doctor's offices) but after that everything was great. Dr. Shin checked out my wrist (I had fallen a few weeks earlier and still had lingering pain). He was fairly certain it was a sprain but ordered a single x-ray to check one bone in my hand. The x-ray was taken within 10 minutes and Dr. Shin was back to talk over the results with me in another 5 minutes. Turns out it's just a sprain so he gave me a special brace to wear and sent me on way. All in all, a great experience!

Edward was quick, knowledgable, very easy to talk to! Went in worried about my shoulder injury, and came out feeling pretty knowledgable and more confident about the recovery process.

Dr. Shin wasn't able to identify the cause of my knee pain and concluded that it is not serious. While it may or may not be serious, the pain still persists and I feel that I didn't receive a thorough medical care. I will have to find another doctor for my knee pain.

I had to go through the paperwork again at office, although I did fill all the forms prior online. Hope this can be eliminated better in future. I felt the consultation was rushed and restless. I'm not sure if the concern I had was addressed well. I visited there to claim the possible improvement on appearance that I had on my foot, but not pain (described clearly), but still recommended to go to physical trainer for improving the pain at the end. I felt the response from the doctor was following the manual but not personalized.

I scheduled a Monday afternoon appointment on a Sunday. It was great being able to see Dr. Shin right away. My appointment promptly began at its scheduled time and ended almost right on the dot. I only saw Dr. Shin for maybe about 15 minutes, but he was very professional, answered all of my questions, and explained my injury and his methods very thoroughly. It was obvious that that he has had a lot of experience. He did an X-ray to determine if I needed surgery on my ankle and performed a test twice just to be sure that I wouldn't (apparently my injury was borderline). I appreciated the extra care to ensure that I wouldn't need surgery. His staff was also very friendly. I can't think of anything that I would change.

I found Dr. Shin based on my location and visited his clinic for my hip pain a few weeks ago. I was seen quickly by an assistant and then Dr. Shin himself after taking a few x-rays of my hip in the clinic which I thought was helpful. He quickly diagnosed me and listened to my needs and we came up with a plan for my lifestyle and hip. He was personable and I felt he truly listened to my needs and addressed my pain. Would highly recommend!

Intelligent. Compassionate. Honest. I believe these are the qualities that distinguishes Dr. Shin from other doctors I have met all over the bay area. I have been dealing with hip pain for the past few years and almost lost hope in returning back to running and football activities. It was until I saw Dr. Shin who accurately diagnosed me and gave me a clear explanation of my condition with a subsequent treatment plan I was comfortable following. It is Dr. Shin's top-notch expertise and excellent staff members that made me feel taken care of. Highly recommend!

Will only go to Dr. Shin for any Ortho needs, and have referred several friends who also reported a great experience. Encouraged non-surgical fix to my Grade 3 MCL strain/Grade 1 ACL strain. Then did the same for a Grade 2 hamstring tear a year later. Both injuries recovered fully and on schedule.

The x-ray technician made inappropriate comments about my ethnicity and Edward Shin was only concerned about surgery and an MRI. He did nothing to address my immediate pain or provide any guidance about how to take care of my injury until the MRI. He talked with me for less than 2 minutes and is clearly focused on earning revenue through surgery rather than sound medical advice. I found him to be unprofessional and unfeeling.
