Dr. Shin saw me for neck pain. He took his time to explain my diagnosis and what the possible treatment I could have. I saw him several times and eventually my pain went away. I recommend him to any one with spinal conditions.

I had a minimally invasive spinal fusion 8 weeks ago, and am making good progress. I can't wait to see the golf course again.

I had a fusion on my back with rods and screws holding everything together. It has been 12 years now since surgery and I am in terrible shape. I can not stand up straight anymore and now I have chronic nerve damage between L4 and L5. I am still in pain. Would love it if he could fix my problem so I can do the things I did before surgery.

I had a back surgery 2 months ago and he does magic. I drive, work, and exercise like usual and I’m back to normal like nothing happened to my back. He is The Best of the Best.

Terrible Administrative practice - This office owes us money from an overpayment, i mistakenly paid an invoice twice, and we have been calling them for 6 months to get the money refunded. They finally sent us a check and it bounced...unbelievable! I would never recommend them to anyone. I would give them 0 stars but it doesn't allow you to do that.
