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.

He is very kind and gentle. I glad to see Dr Shin again.
in Montgomery, AL |
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
