Verified Patient Reviews
Great doctor and great staff. He will be my GYN as long as I live in Northern VA.
Dr. Hyunki Shin is very personable and attentive. I am so so happy with him and his services. He answered all my questions diligently and made me very comfortable sharing my concerns with him. Loved his attitude and will be returning back.
His bedside manner was slightly condescending, and several times I was made to feel like I didnt know my own mind. It's virtually impossible to get in touch with this clinic over the phone.
It's rare to actually meet with the Doctor of a practice that has his name on it. In any case, Dr. Shin was wonderful. I told him about the issues I've dealt with at two prior OBGYN clinics and he...just like me...thought they hadn't done all they could to help me. He was funny and kind and very thorough. I would recommend him again.
Great communication skills and attention to details. Very personable Doctor with lots of experience. Definitely recommend!
Awesome doctor he listens to everything. He takes his time and very kind i would highly recommend him
I was told that I would need to receive "additional information" on how to take a medication. I requested to be given this information over the phone but he required me to come in for instructions. During this follow-up appointment he covered the exact same information that he already provided at my initial appointment. When I asked what "additional" info he needed to share that required me to come in he just said something like-- this is it, it's just that 'all of you' tend to forget and end up calling me to ask questions. Unhappy with his condescending remarks, I gathered my things and refused to pay the copay for the visit. This was the final straw for me, I never felt at ease or comfortable in his office and did not agree with his aggressive approach to fertility discussions.
Dr Shin was courteous and direct. I found his staff was very friendly. I have had bad experiences with this kind of doctor and my heart was pounding the whole time; for my first visit they made the appointment as comfortable as possible. I would also recommend this doctor for anyone who has gone through trauma and is a little skittish. He keeps a nurse in the room through the examination for assistance and mutual comfort.
I saw Dr. Shin a few months ago regarding my future pregnancy and fears of infertility. He was very dismissive of my concerns and made me feel as if they were not important / valid. He forced a lot of his own personal/cultural judgement and not one of a medical professional. I left crying - I would go as far as to say my time with him was pretty traumatic. I would not recommend him.
Honestly, i appreciate it. The doctor gave me a sense of hope and respect. I hope all other doctors are like him. The entire staff in the hospital are awesome and respectful.
Dr. Shin was very personable and made me feel comfortable the whole visit. I felt like he was really trying to get to know me as a new patient and he was very sincere!
The visit was great! I was impressed by the office service. They called me earlier to let me know the doctor was gonna be late because of an emergency operation that he had to perform which I greatly appreciated. However it could have been better if the office staff were more friendly or warmer. They seemed to be a bit stand off ish or disengaged.
My first time seeing Dr. Shin and he was friendly, personable, and open. I will definitely be going back to see him again, highly recommended.
the best! he is such a good doctor!
Great doctor. Explains everything in a detail manner.
It was my FIRST time here. I had to find a new OB-GYN and I came across Dr. Shin on this ZocDoc Website and on average, he was an overall good doctor that helped me with what I came in there for.. I would DEFINITELY go back, as NEEDED.. In the next few months.. :)
I highly recommend him.
He is very good. Highly recommend.
Very nice and thorough during the examination. Would recommend to anyone!
Dr. Shin is great! The office is small and dirty. The staff is terrible, the nurse and receptionist seem like they hate their jobs.
Extremely kind and professional. Felt very comfortable with him and the entire staff. Such a positive experience!
The visit went very well. Dr. Shin was pleasant and patient. Also it was the most comfortable pap smear I have ever had!
Excellent Dr who is thoughtful and patient. Highly recommend Dr. Shin.
He's a wonderful obgyn! He has great staff. Overall I was very please with him through my 9 months of being pregnant all the way to post baby! Very humble down to earth and make sure he keeps his patients at ease!
He was pleasant.
It was wonderful Dr Hyunki shin and all his staff was very lovely and helpful and also very polite. This was my first visit but because I'm a little behind with my check ups , he was thoughtful and help me with a lot of things at once that could have been done in 3rd or 4th appointment and I appreciated that so thank u so much to all. I highly recommend Dr Hyunki because he is very humble and caring and helpful.
He was so considerate and helpful, and he answered all my questions. He spent his time to explain my situation
He is an EXCELLENT professional and a really kind person. I would highly recommend Dr Shin!
This is my second time visiting Dr. Shin, and much like last time, he took his time asking me questions and answering my concerns. He even cared about if my insurance would cover the medication, and gave me coupon and samples for the medication. Highly recommended for anyone who is looking for new OBGYN.
He is very patient, professional and funny. In my case, I had a hard time to do vaginal delivery but he put all the effort to make it happens which I finally did.
Very professional and caring doctor. The only thing I didn't like was that even though I filled my forms online, I was given more forms in the office to fill up.
Dr. Shin was very thorough and provided sound advice, not only on the gynecological aspect of my health, but in general, by making pertinent suggestions.
He was excellent. I would recommend him to anybody
Dr Shin is really patient and professional. As a first time patient, he gave very good review of my record, and also explained so clearly and thoroughly about the examination. I will definitely come back and highly recommend Dr Shin!
He is so humorous and nice. Great doctor.
Have been going to Dr. Shin for the past few years and he and his staff make the visit about as comfortable as visiting your OBGyn can be :) I highly recommend him!
Very good experience. They even called me to schedule an earlier appointment for my issues. Office is clean and personnel is very friendly. Doctor was very direct and explained everything without making me feel uncomfortable.
Excellent. Great professional. Very kind person. Highly recommended.
I really like how he made me feel
Least painful PAP ever!
Very professional, I was nervous at first because of being new patient and new experience but they made me feel comfortable and confident. Great service all around!
Dr. Shin and staff are great. The initial wait is longer than I'd like. But, they are worth the wait!!:-)
Dr. Shin is such a sweet, pleasant guy. I feel like I can ask him any questions and I always feel comfortable during the office visits. I give my highest recommendation.
First impression was great, was able to speak with a current patient and she highly recommended Dr. Shin. His staff made me feel at ease right away. Dr. Shin has won a new patient!
He's really knowledgeable, nice, funny. I love my doctor!
Dr. Shin is very informative and personable, I have been going to the same practice for the past four years and he has gained a new client after our first visit!
He is a fabulous physician. Down to earth kind of man and listens to you :)
It was great
He's a great doctor to have!
The doctor is very soft spoken. I think because my appointment was the last appointment of the day, and being a new patient, he spend almost 40 minutes with me (which almost the entire visit besides the time i was changing and getting my weight and blood pressure done by the nurse). He was very patient and explained everything to me thoroughly. I came in for one specific problem as a new patient, but I was able to get my annual and birth control done all in one visit, plus he even sent my prescription to the pharmacy before I left. If I have to complain about something, it would be the receptionist. She seemed uninterested and there was no smile on her face the entire time I was there. The doctor and the nurse there were very nice and personable. Highly recommended.
Everyone was really friendly, helpful and full of information. I'm a veteran and first time seeing a male OBGYN and the fact he was an Army medic and extremely caring won me over.
I'll be definitely coming back to see him again.
Dr. Shin and his staff are wonderful! They are very professional, kind, and knowledgeable. I really dislike visiting the Doctor; however, I actually look forward to my appointments with Dr. Shin. I had a c-section with Dr. Shin, and the entire surgery was fine! It was quick, painless, and, most importantly, without complications! Following my labor, I decided to make Dr. Shin my primary OBGYN so; now, I am seeing him for annual appointments and mammograms as well. It goes without saying that if I have another baby, Dr. Shin will be delivering that one too! I am a difficult person to please, but I am immensely pleased with Dr. Shin and his office staff. I would highly recommend Dr. Shin!
I'm a Cardiac ICU nurse, so I have a lot of experience with doctors. I was a new patient, just having moved here in the beginning of my third trimester as my husband is doing rotations for grad school. The front office staff was all very nice. The first thing Dr. Shin says as he walks into the room is to tell me I shouldn't be moving around so much, that I should have had my records with me, and that no doctor will want to take me because it's the middle of my pregnancy. I told him (and his office staff) repeatedly that my previous OB office would be faxing my records over that day. I had even two days prior to ask if I should have my prior OB fax my records over before the appointment so he had them, but they said they'd just do it the day of. His bedside manner was horrible, flat, cold, and rude. He did try to help by filling out some form that would make me moving to my next doctor easier, and he did check everything that was expected (heartbeat, ultrasound, glucose test, cervix, although he wasn't the most gentle with that), but the guy was still definitely not recommendable to anyone. The nurse did get a little rude at the end when I told her I wasn't coming back and I'd like to take my records with my, stating under her breath that that was probably good, they're busy enough as it is. Which I thought was funny as he had many openings the day I looked for an appointment, and basically all morning the next two mornings after. When I got there, there was only 1 other person in the waiting room (more when I was leaving). And they were all Asian. Asians (co-worker RNs I've had) tend to view doctors as Gods (which is not how we do it here in America. They deserve the same amount of respect that I do, and no more), so maybe that's why those were the only people he was seeing, I'm really not sure. But I certainly won't be going back.
He is a really nice doctor. Very informative. Very friendly and warm and explained everything.
He was thorough and did not rush, even though I was late for my appointment.
Really incredible doctor! He and his staff made us feel like royalty. My husband and I felt at ease from the moment we entered the door of the office. He is truly a kind, knowledgeable doctor and shows concern and care for his patients and all of their questions. Excellent doctor with an absolutely kind and gentle demeanor. He was extremely thorough and the office was extremely clean and pleasant., His staff deserves a 10 out of 10! I feel fortunate to have found him especially with all the questions that goes through your mind with a 1st pregnancy. I walked in and was greeted with kindness. The receptionist and all the staff were incredible. My prayers were answered! Can't wait for my next visit.
dr.shin has made my pregnancy easy and relaxing. he is very knowledgeable and works with you no matter the situation. he has delivered both my babies and I will continue to use if for future babies
I loved my visit with his office and I would definently go back. I thought he was caring and compassionate. Dr.Shin made me feel really comfortable, when I was there. I give him a five star rating.
Although it was my first gyno visit, I felt really comfortable talking to Dr. Shin. I'll be definitely coming back to see him from now on.
Quick visit - great doctor. He has a great sense of humor.
Great OB! Felt very comfortable the entire time with him and all of the staff. Friendly and welcoming staff as well! I was induced and the experience was actually a good one.
He is very patient and answers all questions! He also has a great sense of humor! He is a great doctor!
I loved Dr.Shin. I reccomend him for any soon to be mother. He was so kind and made me feel so relaxed.
Well, I chose this Doc by the review I found here. And I'm so glad that was true. There is no way to feel comfortable with a gynecologist but he acts so professionally that Makes me felt less badly. He was so gentle and showed much interest in my problems and worries. For sure he gonna be my Doc for a long time.
Pro: The Doctor himself was awesome. I explained everything to Dr. Shin and he listened, made me feel less uncomfortable and I was able to relax. Im high strung (esp at these things) so it was great feeling less tense. Con: I showed to my appointment 20 minutes early but waited an 30 minutes to go into the exam room then an additional 40 minutes to see Dr. Shin. I understand he's a busy man, but maybe book more time between appointments so we don't have to wait?
He's great and makes you feel comfortable. His staff is not all that welcoming, but still good.
It was PERFECT!!!
I liked the doctor he was very understanding and met all my needs and concerns.

I can not say enough good things about Dr. Shin. I think my favorite part is that he explains things and makes them easy to understand. His staff is also very friendly and helpful.
He was very professional and knowledgable.
