Dr spent 10 minutes to review 15 years of chronic pain. I had short, concise summaries of all mris and scans and an injection history. He didn’t even take them from my hand. Reviewed only 1 mylegram. I have chronic back pain and have been through years of physical therapy and other treatments without relief. He basically said there’s no reason for my back to hurt though I have 11 bulging discs. Referred me to 2 week pain management program and said there was nothing he could do. I drove 5 hours for this appointment and I’m sure the bill will be hefty. Waste of time and money. Who can afford to stay in a hotel and attend a 2 week medical program? I can’t even imagine the cost of that. I have cochleae implants and could hear most of what he was saying. I told him that repeatedly but he just continues to ramble on not facing me and unintelligible. I do not recommend this doctor. I’ve been to Cleveland clinic for my hearing and had high expectorations. Let down.

Dr. Shin felt my back and had me raise my arms and turn to each side. He told me there was not anything he could do and I would just have to live with the pain. He said it is all muscle. I left crying. The new doctor said yes my muscles are tight but caused by nerve damage. Thankfully I have found a doctor that is going to help me. Not through the Cleveland Clinic. I would not take my cat to him.

Dr Shin is an excellent doctor. After 2 months of unknown reason for pain, I was able to get in the same day. He diagnosed my issue that 2 ER visits did not do. He was able to read my CT scan and find the reason for the pain I have been in for 2 month. I will suggest him to anyone that needs pain management. Thank you Dr. Shin!

Dr. Shin has been my Pain Specialist since 2013. I have lumbar and cervical areas with fusion, and had pain MD interventions since 1995 by different highly rated specialists. Dr. Shin listens carefully and has performed trigger point, epidural, and radiofrequency ablations on both areas, as is appropriate and I had the most relief from his procedures. Use the Wooster facility. This outpatient facility is efficient, the nurses caring and are expert in IV insertion. No anesthetic hangover.

In my opinion, unless seeking help for ACUTE PAIN ( pain of less than 3 months) or TREATMENT WITH OTHER MODALITIES (example: surgery, injections, etc...) don't expect relief from pain. I found no help for chronic pain. The discussion centered around getting off existing medication for chronic pain and living with the pain.
