Patient Comments (4)
in York, PA |
Dr. Shih reviewed all of my records prior to my appointment. He listed to my issues and seemed very professional with his diagnosis. Overall my encounter with Dr. Shih was top notch!
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.
