What People Say About Dr. Eon Shin, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

At our initial meeting, Dr. Shin's calm demeanor, obvious passion for his craft, willingness to answer all my questions and wonderful bedside manner filled me with trust and confidence. I had no doubt I was in very capable, skilled hands, and felt I'd made the right choice of surgeons. On Jan. 7, 2020, using a local anesthetic, Dr. Shin did an excellent job of removing a mucous cyst from my left thumb. Two months later, the scar is negligible, recovery was faster than expected, with minimal need for PT, and I expect 100% range of motion within 2-3 more weeks. Thank you Dr. Shin for your expertise and for making me feel like I was your most important patient!

My initial consult with Dr Shin was very impressive. He is very caring, professional and knowledgeable. He spent a lot of time with Me discussing the surgery options and consequences of each. He pointed out why a certain surgical procedure was best for me. I would highly recommend Dr Shin and will follow up with possible surgery

I have had 2 trigger fingers released and a broken arm repaired where I needed surgery. Dr Shin's bedside manner is above and beyond what I have ever experienced. He listens with empathy, patience and answers all questions. His work is amazing. I barely have any scars and recovered with full range of motion with my arm after the break and surgery. I highly recommend him as he's truly the best all around!

Dr. Shin is thorough, patient, friendly disposition, excellent surgeon. He asks and answers all questions. LRTI surgery on my thumb performs well now. Very pleased with the use of my dominant hand. He will be there for me for the other hand in the future. EXCELLENT.

Dr. Shin wish to thank you for your compassion - I had never removed my wedding ring since the day I got married, and your compassion with how emotional I became on learning I had just lost my husband. You, eased by heart with just a few words. After 50 years together it really was traumatic for me and for my son who you also managed to put at ease-your staff also were very understanding-

Dr. Shin has repaired each of my wrists after bad breaks (at different times), and recently a trigger finger. From the caring staff, to Doctor Shin w/ the best skill and bedside manner, and then the physical therapy team... everyone is top notch. It's not just the skill with the surgery (but there's none better!), but the care and attention to every detail, and ensuring that you and your family member are kept notified throughout the process. His manner takes a lot of the stress out of the situation. I actually found Dr. Shin here on Healthgrades when I broke my first wrist, and I'm grateful that I did!!

Dr. Shin operated on both of my hands for carpal tunnel syndrome. I am a professional violinist and the surgery was critical to my continued performance. Both surgeries were successful, and I no longer have pain or numbness. I am so grateful to Dr. Shin for his knowledge, skill and care.

I have been a patient of Dr. Shin's for several years-have had two successful surgeries done by him. He is the true caring professional that we all seek for our medical care. Very easy to talk with, clearly explains every option and procedure. I have recommended him to anyone in need of an upper body specialist. Outstanding!

Dr. Shin is an amazing, caring, trustworthy Doctor. He is patient, honest and cares about patients needs. I would recommend Dr. Shin to any one who is in need of a Doctor but are scared because he makes you feel confident in what he is doing and he shows greatly how much he cares for your concerns.

I have already recommended him to many family members, friends, and co-workers. His work on my hands comes up in conversation and so many I know have also been his patient. Each and every one of us satisfied with his work. Me personally, I have my hands back! To think back to the pain I went through - I wouldn't wish that on anyone, but he gave me my hands back... Thank you, Dr. Shin!!

Dr Shin and all the staff are super friendly . I was made very comfortable and was informed of my options after the initial examination of my hands. I had my left hand done. The procedure was pretty quick . The St Claire medical staff was excellent, friendly and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Shin for all your hand and shoulder sprains and pains .
