What People Say About Dr. Carl Shin, MD

I was a patient of his functional restoration program at Professional Drive for 6 weeks. This program was special to me because of the education and exercises missing in my life to deal with chronic pain and make the best choices in my future. This program is a smorgasbord of help to deal with chronic pain and how to see the doctor's role.

Insurance company best friend. This office will do or not do whatever your company insurance carrier wants them to. With no regard for patients well being or health. Dr Shin will tell you one thing and then tell insurance companies totally different info. They are not there for you.

Dr Shin is wonderful. He's so easy to listen to and FULL of knowledge. He has always encouraged me to manage my pain with exercise and to rise above it (sometimes to my dismay). There may be things that I can't do, but there are many things that I CAN do. Thank you Dr Shin for believing in me and for your passion of encouraging and inspiring.
