Amazing doctor who goes out of her way. Squeezed me in for multiple appointments during her time off when my earlier pregnancy was not viable. Gave us a very sensible game plan to deal with complications. Made a lot of great calls that resulted in our healthy son being delivered and a fast recovery for me. Well loved doctor highly respected by her peers... we heard over and over again how great she is and for good reason! Thank you so much, Dr. Shin!

Horrible in my opinion. Did not use any anesthesia for a procedure I have and terrible bedside manner.
