Very unethical practices. They schedule appointments for an hour but you only get 50 min. The other 10 min or more is a buffer for doctor. But god forbid you have an emergency (with proof) or be 1 min late, so they say.(that all depends on what clock they use) you may be on time by your watch. They will try to charge you for the session and then refuse to see you. They also threaten you if you don't pay. Telling you they will report you to collections. Very unprofessional.

The office staff is friendly and I've only had 2 appointments with Dr.Shin, he is fast with getting you in and out but accurate in asking questions and making sure you're okay and have what you need. I think it is a great office to go to for your behavioral needs!

Dr. Shin and this office is amazing! As a military spouse, I have been to all sorts of Psychiatrist Offices and this one is by far my favorite. It is small, well decorated, comfortable and clean. The staff is VERY polite and I have never waited more than 5 minutes for my scheduled appointments. I chose this office because I didn't want to drive into Fayettville and because it didn't seem as clinical and depressing as many of the offices I have been to. I was not disappointed. Always leave happy.

I had an emergency and had to cancel an appointment. I called as soon as their office opened to cancel. About a week later I got a bill in the mail for $250.00. I called and they said that was their cancellation fee. They wouldn't even work with me. They are crooks. I have never heard of such a fee being so high. I'm sure they filled that appointment slot with another patient. I would never refer them to anyone!!

Barely attentive, not flexible with scheduling, not military friendly. Rushes you in and out in less than five minutes. Refuses to talk to you directly outside of appointments, even in urgent situations. Stay away.
