in Millersville, MD |
Last 2 visits were a 90min wait and a 2hr wait, then spent less than 5mins in the office. No interest in actually fixing or addressing current issues. "Just tough your pain out and take some pills" offered no direct solution to multiple spine issues. I had C3-4 surgery done by him, surgery went well. Left voicemails with no return call. Office staff is never happy because he is consistently late, ALWAYS. Not sure how he continues to practice medicine. I would not recommend him to anyone.

2-3 hour office waits and unpleasant office staff. Dr shin is rude and arrogant. He didn't explain my surgery well and argued with me when it didn't work, later openly admitting he did the wrong surgery for what I really needed. Absolutely horrible experience. I would give 0 star rating if that was an option!
in Columbia, MD |
With over a two hour wait time, the entire visit took 3 hours (no exaggeration). In addition, I called with a follow up question about the prescription I was given and a conflict with an existing medication and never received a return call. Why was I prescribed a medication with a clear conflict, particularly when I had included all my current medication in their questionnaire? I will be looking for a different doctor.
