Everything went great. Appointment was scheduled for Friday morning, but there was an administrative problem with the LASIK machine. A timely reschedule was critical as I was out of town the next three weeks. Staff took time out of their weekend away from their families to get the surgery completed on Sunday afternoon (Fathers day to boot). Would definitely recommend to anyone contemplating LASIK!
Prattville, AL |
The best doctor you will ever meet. He has a heart of gold and will do anything for his patients. Dr. Shin was recommended to me by an employee of his and he certainly lived up to the recommendation. His nurse (Tiffany) is highly competent, professional, and compassionate. Other than the wait time, my appointment was great! He is well worth the wait!! Go Dr. Shin and Tiffany!!

in Wetumpka, AL |
Dr. shin and his amazing staff did my LASIK this past Friday. I was so nervous I was not sure if I could do it. Dr. Shin and his staff comforted me and made me feel safe, relaxed and in the BEST hands. I can't say enough great things of all of them. Dr. Shin was amazing. His staff was amazing!!!! If you want the best care, these guys are the ones!!!!
Eclectic, AL |
Dr. Shin and the entire team were outstanding. They educated me before my Lasix procedure and talked me through each step while the procedure was happening. They made me feel like part of the family and I could "feel" that they wanted nothing but the best for me. I would highly recommend Dr. Shin.
in South Bend, IN |
Dr. Shin and his staff are highly recommended. They were extremely professional and personable while guiding me through the process of having PRK surgery. They are to be commended for educating me thoroughly during each step of the procedure and counseling me afterwards regarding any concerns or challenges I may have had. Kelsey Howe deserves special mention for her intelligence patience and compassion while guiding teaching & assisting during this delicate operation. I am grateful and thankful.
in Montgomery, AL |
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.
in Montgomery, AL |
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.
in Montgomery, AL |
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
