Patient Comments (3)
in Myerstown, PA |
This is a retraction of a previous negative review I wrote regarding my unhappiness about not being able to get an appointment with Dr Shih when I was experiencing abdominal problems. Recently Dr Shih personally called me and very graciously expressed his regret that I had not been worked in immediately and that steps were being taken to ensure it didn't happen in the future. I previously found Dr Shih to be a very caring doctor and my talk with him has more than restored my confidence In him.
