Was supposed to have a call back within 48 hours from a blood test, I even called the office and was told I would get a call back. Never did, changing doctors. I feel like I was not taken seriously during the appt, not something Id like to feel.

Dr. Shin was such a joy to have as a provider. He was very informative and kind. I was nervous about a few things but he educated me and reassured me that I was in great care and indeed I was.I highly recommend Dr. Shin! The whole staff was kind and sweet and not too many professionals are that way daily. It was a pleasure visiting and I miss them and hope to use them again if I get blessed again to have another baby!

I have been going to Dr. Shin for about 2 years now. He is one of the best doctors I have been to in my 29 years. He was the only doctor to not only diagnose but treat me for something I dealt with for years.

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 hisown 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.

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.

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 hecovered 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.

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 likeme...thought they hadn't done all they could to help me. He was funny and kind and very thorough. I would recommend him again.

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 comfortableas 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.

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 itcould have been better if the office staff were more friendly or warmer. They seemed to be a bit stand off ish or disengaged.

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 entiresurgery 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!
