Dr Shim and Jason are simply the best and most caring professionals I have met and trusted for my spine issues. Always friendly, thorough, effective and extremely sensitive to your needs and pain. Add to that a firm handshake, smile, and pleasant sense of humor — you just can’t get any better than that!

Dr. Shim and his office staff are amazing! From the very first call, everyone was patient and willing to answer any questions that I had regarding my injury, treatment options and recovery time. Less than a week after my surgery, a hurricane hit Florida. Dr. Shim, Jason and Cathie made sure that I had a way to reach someone if needed during that time. They never stop thinking about the well being of their patients.

I originally came to Dr. Shim for a second opinion, he and Jason proved to be the team I was confident In trusting with my well being. Professional, caring, & thorough throughout the entire process. They were available for my every need and concern, for myself and my family. Now six weeks out from my neck procedure I have no regrets. The supportive care I received from the entire staff following my surgery was unsurpassed. Jason possesses a special talent in patient care. A heartfelt thank you!

Listen here! Dr. Shim is the man, Direct, to the point, and will get the job done! (I am BACK!) no point intended, however, my back is 100% back to normal... I was in agonizing pain since my accident, not anymore. Not only are they professional, they are affordable, personal, and truly genuine staff. I'm talking about from Jason answering any and all question, all the follow up calls, help with prescription after surgery without hesitant. I could write all day. Easy, God Given Staff! Thank you!

Dr. Shim and his staff were the best. After my initial visit with doctor Shim I knew I was in the right place for my back surgery. Both he and Cathy were so informative I felt like all my questions had been answered and Dr. Shim's confidence with the procedure left me wishing I had done it long ago. Now it's been two weeks since it was done and I feel a vast improvement and getting better everyday. Thanks doctor Shim Rick Wilkinson

We met with Dr. Shim on 2/7/ 2017. We were completely satisfied with his clear and concise explanations regarding various procedures to correct a painful left leg condition. He thoroughly explained options to correct issues in the M.R.I. He listened well and explained the corrections using different techniques. He was very knowledgeable with a good sense of humor. After updated M.R.I. testing we will meet him again to determine the operation corrective actions. His staff was very effective.

Dr Shim and his staff engendered trust and a positive professionalism from the first phone conversation. Prior to actually meeting him for my initial consultation Dr. Shim was personally recommended. I never had any reason to feel anxiety or concern thru the entire process. It was comforting to know immediately that Dr. Shim had my best interest as a primary concern. I have already recommended him to several people, and expect to recommend him without hesitation in the future.

Dr. Shim and his assistant, Jason, did an overall excellent job in the diagnosis, the surgery procedure itself, and the communication of information in every aspect of my situation. So far, my results are great and I am very pleased with the outcome. After only 2 weeks recovery, I am looking forward to resuming my normal, daily activities.

Dr. Shim, his assistant Jason Mazza, and the rest of the staff were wonderful. Very courteous, professional, and took the time to explain everything in detail before and after my back surgery. Would recommend Dr. Shim and his staff to anyone.
