I suffered a retinal occlusion, and currently being treated by Dr. Chin, and the staff at Montgomery Eye Physicians. In combination with Dr, Cook , at the Jackson Hospital Wound center , my sight has been partially saved. Excellent help and follow up.
in Montgomery, AL |
He is an excellent dr and the best at what he does. I just wish he would slow down a little and take more time with us patients. He always seems to be in such a hurry.

Dr. Shin is very friendly, professional, and explains his procedures so that the patient can understand what is going on. His staff is also very efficient.

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
