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.
