Review for Dr. Tang

This was my first visit to Dr. Shin. I found him very professional, kind and compassionate. He explained everything thoroughly to me about my back condition. He prescribed medication and is giving great relief for my lower back pain. I very happy I found him and will continue as a patient of his.

Review for Dr. Shin

Each visit is the same. They, unlike most docs offices, are prompt. If my appt is at 11 then im called in the back by 11:05. Very attentive and efficient. Overall, I love it there as opposed to ALL my other doctors
