Patient Comments (4)
Bishop, CA |
I saw Dr. Shinada one time. He ordered lab tests and told me to message him through the patient portal when I got the lab work done, which I did. I did not get a response from him, or USC for a follow up. I messaged again a few months later when symptoms increased, no response. This was my first time to a rhuematologist, I live in a rural area and drove 5 hours to see him. Some kind of response or instruction would have been appreciated.

With hands down this is one of the best doctors my husband has seen at USC. He has great people skills and takes time and explains everything. Compassion is the best word to describe him. What a great and wonderful doctor!
in Downey, CA |
Been under Dr. Shinada's care and I must admit that he is an excellent medical provider. I trust his knowledge and appreciate his care toward my needs.
in Rosemead, CA |
Dr. Shinada is very kind, professional and respectful. He has been taking care of me for my Lupus and daughter for RA for more then 10yrs. I also see him when my PMD is too booked to get a appointment and I can see him within 24 hrs. or sooner. He is the Best !! He really care about the whole person.
