A freak accident left me with a gash in the middle of my face. I went to the ER to get 5 stitches put in, but I was worried the result would be an awful scar. I was able to get in to see Dr. Shim Ching, & talk about LITERALLY SAVING FACE. Dr. Shim Ching removed the ER’s 5 stitches & put in 15 small tight stitches to help ease scarring & make for a better overall end result. From start to finish, my experience at Asia Pacific Plastic Surgery could not have been better. The office was clean, beautiful & everyone wore masks & took safety precautions for Covid-19. The staff were warm, funny, generous & accommodating. Tera, CST was super nice & made me feel really comfortable. Erin, OR Nurse, was amazing & really went above & beyond organizing everything & taking care of me. Dr. Shim Ching was attentive, thorough, kind & exceeded my expectations. Everyone really went the extra mile & I truly feel blessed to have gone to them when I did! Thank you for putting this Mama back together!!!

All in all, I paid $9.5K for literal torture that left my legs deformed. I spent more time waiting for the doctor on the day of the procedure than I did actually being operated on. The office of Dr. Shim Ching has terrible communication and terrible follow up care. The office seems to always be overbooked and its apparent that they care more about quantity than quality care. I am embarrassed to wear shorts in public, I am ashamed of my own body, and now I would have to fork out a ton of money if I wanted to fix these issues. These procedures always have risks and I guess I was just one of the unlucky ones. I am more upset about the care that I received than I am about the procedure results.

Well started out good. When I first went there for consult the nurse I spoke to was great. I came to find out that this was like fishing, i fell hook, line ,and sinker and booked my surgery by them saying all the right things. my implants almost immediately after surgery started bottoming out, so the dr.blamed it on me and can fix it with another surgery(alot more money). I'm very unhappy. Day 14 -8 months post op now, but looks like I'm 80 with a job that looks like it was do e 35yrs ago.

I recently had a breast augmentation done by Dr. Ching and it's only been one week since surgery. I love them already and can't wait to see the final drop/shape of them! Pain was very least and also my incisions look amazing. I've never seen anyone's incision look as good as mine does, only after 1 week! Dr. Ching was very patient with me considering that I am very skeptical about every little thing and it has to be perfect to me. I felt only he was up to my standards! Thank you Dr. Ching! ??
