Finding it very difficult to make a appointment. New patient Coordinator will not call you back. Been trying for two weeks.

If you want to spend hours sitting in a waiting room that is about as comfortable as a DMV office - this is where you want to be! Office is cold (literally and figuratively) . In the past few years of being with this doctor, I have only seen the actual dr. twice. No patient care, just an assembly line. Last time when I got there there was a sign up that said I "may" have to wait up to an hour for my appt. This time they did not let me know in advance I walked out after 45 minutes.

Never go here!

I have been seeing Dr. Shin for many years for a chronic pain injury. He has always listened to me and adjusted my treatments to bring me the most relief possible. Sometimes treatment has involved drugs, but he also has referred me for physical therapy and acupuncture. He has also given my several epidural selective nerve blocks which have almost always brought immediate relief. Unfortunately, my insurance will no longer pay for the SNB so Dr. Shin has resorted to other treatments.

Dr. Carl Shin has been my pain management physician for 13yrs. He is always been understanding and compassionate. But also knows how to put his foot down and letting you know that it's time to work the program to the best of your abilities to get better. A very positive and friendly person. Your well-being is his only concern. I respect him as my doctor and a human being. I hope I can keep you as my doctor for as long as I live. I know you care about my condition. So someday I can be my best.

Horrible experience. Needs to manage office appointments more efficiently. I waited over an hour and a half to see a phydician's assistant. I have only seen a doctor once in over a year. I will not return or ever recommend this office. I must say that the physician assistants are courteous and professional but the wait is unacceptable.

I would not ever recommend this company to even my worst enemy! The front staff is very incompetent. Their phone and listening skills are non-existent. They made me wait 4 months for a mri that had been approved in Dec. After asking numerous times if it had been approved during those 4 months. I was told no every time. Very disorganized. This is a workmans comp case so I don't think I have a choice but to stay with them.
