Dr. Shin's entire staff is very professional & very helpful. I had a unique situation, in that I needed pain management & neck surgery within two weeks, as my insurance as about to expire. Dr. Shin went above & beyond the call of duty. He immediately got on the phone with a surgeon that he had worked with before. Between the two of them, they figured out ,along with the help of my BCBS case manager,how to get the needed neck surgeon completed before the end of the month!

Dr. Shin is truly one of the best doctors that I have Ever been treated by. He is VERY caring, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable! I have been dealing with a great amount of pain only ending up more frust after seeing several other physicians that either just wanted me to continue coming back for an OV or just a quick fix. I would highly recommend him to ANYONE looking for someone understand your pain and what you have been going through! He has changed my quality of life.

Dr. Shin is an absolute gem. He genuinely cares for his patients and never seems rushed in the doctor-patient exchange. He is obviously highly knowledgeable in his field. I only wished I had found Dr. Shin sooner, as I have dealt with a large amount of pain in the last several weeks. For the first time, through Dr. Shin's care, I feel I am finally getting some resolution. Dr. Shin, you ARE a blessing!

This is not your average pain clinic....these people really care and Dr. Shin will be very straightforward with you about your situation. The previous pain clinics I went to just sat you down, wrote a script for pills and sent you down the road. My goal was to get off all the pills and Dr. Shin helped me do that and I am so thankful. He is truly a professional in every way and I will recommend him to anyone I come across.

Dr. Shin listened intently and heard every detail of my condition, and described to me their implication. He quickly and accurately diagnosed my condition and prescribed courses of action, therapies, and other specialists to confirm his finding. The therapies gave me be better ranges of motion. And coupled with the right prescribed medication, together they have given me a great and active quality of life. He has a most efficient office and courteous staff. I highly recommend Dr. Shin.

Dr. Shin got me in quickly and was thorough, compassionate and took a sincere interest in my injury. He spent the time to explain everything about my situation to me. I understood more after leaving his office then I did my surgeons office. I went back for an epidural steroid injection and he and his staff again were top notch. Thank you Dr. Shin!

He listens, he wants to help. He went a step further than the top neurologist in Dallas and found the solution to my problem. This solution was without pain medication of any kind. Dr Shin is the man. Thank you Dr Shin for giving me my life back.
