Dr Shen is a great doctor. he spent enough time to listen me and truly understood what I need, and knowledgeable explained the potential reason for causing my back pain. his treatment plan worked me very well and now I do not have any pain on my back.

I found this doctor to have a lack of compassion that was distinct. I feel he didn’t give me the time of day; instead told me the reasons I should not be in pain. Mansplained my pain to me. Very surprised at the lack of quality care I received from Dr. Shen at MGH. I feel he made very little of an effort to understand me and/or my pain and recommended treatment options just to be done with dealing with me. Made me feel like a burden.
