Matthew M in Rancho Mirage – Apr 29, 2018
We love Dr. Shih! My teenage son has had several pediatricians over his lifetime, and Dr. Shih is both his favorite and mine. He is extremely knowledgeable and up to date on current medical trends, and communicates patiently and clearly. He communicates extremely well with my intellectual teenager, never talking down to him. We are so very sad that his practice is closing in our area. As I search for a new pediatrician, I'm reminded what a gem he is.

Such a shame to see Dr. Shih and Dr. Fraschetti close their practice in La Quinta. Two of the best doctors for sure. Attentive, knowledgeable and everything else you would want from a Doctor for your children. The girls at the front desk are AWESOME! friendly and always helpful.

Dr Shih is personable, caring, knowledgeable and explains his thoughts and expresses his concerns in a thoughtful, and comprehensible manner. My wife and I are both physicians - unbeknownst to Dr Shih at the time, and he took the time and demonstrated the compassion first for our daughter a few years ago, which made it an easy decision to have our son become one of his patients. His staff are kind and organized. As a physician I hope my practice and bedside manner are comparable to Dr Shih's.

Absolutely Wonderful doctor. Thorough, explains in detail and the processes. Great with my son. Very well educated and current on medical industry. Wouldn't go anywhere else. It is sometimes difficult to get him on the phone, but he takes his time and it great when you are there in the office. Highly recommend him!
