      I found Dr. Shin to be very knowledgeable. He discovered I had a severe eye infection from an eye plug that malfunctioned over 5 years ago.He listened to me describe how my eye felt when I couldn't figure out how to describe it well myself. He did not stop working on my eye until he found the issue. I had to have a surgical procedure(which was no fun but not his fault - it would have been no fun whomever did the procedure) He has made sure I have plenty of antibiotics & he cultured the bacteria

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
