She’s a rotten lady. Her carelessness, the lack of respect and the way she speaks to you is just awful. Rule of thumb when they have to many available appointments you know patients don’t want to see her

Dr. Shim was professional and personable as was the receptionist. What I really appreciated was that she took the time to answer my questions and give me more background on my symptoms and diagnosis so I could better understand what was happening and what I should do to feel better as soon as possible.

After reading some previous reviews, I was initially a little worried about my appointment with Dr. Shim, but I actually had a very good experience. She was a good listener and seemed to take thorough notes. I thought she had a very pleasant demeanor and good sense of humor.

I saw this doctor this week for heartburn and everything about the experience was unpleasant. They didn't take me for TWO HOURS. I said to the front staff, it would've been courteous to let me know when I called that you were running behind. She said we can't predict a doctor running behind. No, you can't, but TWO HOURS BEHIND was is enough to know she's going to be late. The doctor is completely bizarre. She talks to you through a mirror and rushes your story along (bare in mind again, i waited two hours to get to see her and paid in advance, which i always find really sketchy and greedy) and she barly listened. She kept saying 'and then? " to try to get me to speed up my story. She was NOT knowledgable of any of the supplements I take, told me I was too skinny, and by and large was completely weird. Refused to look at me face-to-face, only through a mirror. It was unlike any doctor experience I've ever had. In the end her advice was off-base and she refused to listen to my concerns. I would never ever EVER see this person again.

Dr. Shim is a thorough and gentle mannered doctor. I appreciated her down to earth nature, and her effort to fully understand my medical history to give an accurate current diagnosis. I will use Dr. Shim for all future issues she can help me with.

Racist doctor whose racism actually affects your medical care. She said I could not have the particular issue that I have because I was white. First, I am not white. Second, that is not a valid reason for her opinion; white people have this issue all the time, admittedly less prevelently. She was also dismissive of my symptoms and changed her diagnosis three times within the span of five minutes without fully hearing me out. It doesn't matter how nice and friendly a doctor is if she doesn't listen to your symptoms and judges your diagnosis based on race.

This was my first visit with the doctor. The wait time wasnt bad however, Dr. Shin was very brief with the appointment. I didnt feel like she was listening to how I was feeling and was quick to diagnose. She recomended an over the counter medication that helped relieve some symptoms.

Dr. Shim was courteous and also friendly. I read other reviews that mentioned she didn't look at the patient while doing the interview. That was not the case with me. Dr. Shim made eye contact during the interview, listened to my answers, and responded in a warm but professional manner.

This was a revisit and I find Dr Shim to be thorough in looking for solutions that are conservative in treating a long term issue, explains a plan B approach and offering simple lifestyle modifications to try.

A little too informal. No eye contact. A little too rude and blunt. Claimed to know exactly what my problem was after 10 minutes of speaking during my first visit. Told me she knew how to treat it and basically suggested a single medication that I know doesn't work for me. I left feeling confused and weird.
