Patient Reviews (2)
Richmond, VA |
She seemed to be too disgusted to touch my face and came off as cold and unfriendly. She also said my skin condition is a sign of diabetes which is untrue because first, she failed to identify what the skin condition was, and she isn't an endocrine physician to even suggest diabetes. Therefore, I don't recommend her.

I have been seeing Dr. Shinn for over 2 years. She is very patient with every question I have. She thoroughly explains all treatment plans. Her staff seems very intelligent and professional. I recommend her to all of my family and friends. Thanks Dr. Shinn!!
