I highly recommend Dr. Shen. Their newly renovated office in the new building is very clean and staffs are friendly. They are the largest neurology group in southern California and I am very happy to be Dr. Shen's patient.

wish i could rate this no stars. This guy truly does not care about his patients, and the poor ratings justify it. But just a bit of insight on this gentleman. I work 60 hours a week and for me it can take up to 2-3 days to respond in a timely manner. He withdrew me from seeing him because i did not respond within that window. Which is okay, I was not seeing him for advice or to obtain information because he is not that educated in his field to begin with. You will pick that up once you see him
Dr. Shen is very knowledgeable about all kinds of neurological disorders. He is very friendly and really cares about his patients. The staff has been incredible with me. They are extremely friendly and have gone above and beyond to answer questions, authorize treatments, and even have greeted me with hugs because I've had some challenging transition of meds this past year.

I would highly recommend Dr. Shen. He is extremely knowledgeable, very thorough, caring and patience. He listens to my symptoms and explains in very understandable terms. He communicated with my primary care Doctor to ensure they were on the same page. I referred him to several friends and they all have Dr. Shen as their Neurologist. Dr. Shen has been nominated as Top Doctor for many years and they are the largest Neurology group in Southern California.

Hard to schedule appt with front office, takes forever to have someone gets back ! I would not recommend this facility to anyone !
in Newport Beach, CA |
Dr. Shen is very calm, caring, and professional. I highly recommend him! My cousin who is a Cardiovascular Surgeon recommended Saddleback Neuroscience Medical Group since they are the largest Neurology Group in Southern California and Dr. Shen has the best reputation. I had several morning appointments with Dr. Shen and all went well.

I would never refer anyone to this Dr. My PCP referred me to him and I made an appt. After cancelling 2 appts with plenty of notice, was told that if I wanted to reschedule, I would have to see another Dr, as he is upset that I had to cancel. His staff thanked me for calling saying lots of people don't call. My reason for cancelling was due to my adult daughter being very ill. His office girl seemed embarrassed to tell me of his tantrum. Don't need this kind of medical help! Praying for him.

His manner is terrible and he misdiagnosed my symptoms. The combination of bad manner and problematic diagnostic skills created lots of unnecessary problems for me. I would avoid this doctor at all costs.

Receptionist unfriendly upon check in. Check out receptionist very friendly and helpful. Dr. Shen was border-line RUDE with my 83 year old mother. Of course she is struggling, that is why she is there!! He treated her as if she was a 2 year old, totally condescending and impatient. My mother does not want to go back, and now I have to try to convince her!
