Dr. Shin and his team are excellent and I would definitely recommend him as the guy to fix any issues with your hands. I had a pretty intense fracture in my right wrist and went to Shin for surgery. He is very passionate about his work and thorough in explaining his approach in the solution to your matter. The only downside is that he is so busy, so the amount of time you get with him directly is minimal and therefore the office visits feel rush

Very knowledgable and engaging. Easy to talk to and he explains everything well. He's the kind of doctor you trust to take care of your hand issues.

Dr, Shin was professional without being aloof. He is informative, lighthearted, he and his crew are a great team. My procedure was a minor one, trigger finger release, so not a real serious one. With local anesthesia, we were able to banter through the whole 8 minutes it took. This was my 4th trigger finger release by Dr. Shin. I can't really say its a PLEASURE to be his patient, I'd rather not have to be there at all, but he and the entire team make it okay.

If you're looking for a great hand surgeon and a professional experience this is the correct doctor. Dr shin did a four corner wrist fusion on my right wrist. I had the same procedure done eight years ago from another doctor on my left wrist. This time I decided to go to Dr Shin and can see a major difference afre in my recovery. The office is highly professional and i would recommend them to anyone considering surgery.

I had a great experience with Dr. Shin and his fantastic team at Kerlan-Jobe. I had surgery to repair a tear in my wrist and it was 100% successful. After 4 years of medicore results from other places, I decided to just stop and do my research to find the best hand surgeon in S. California. From the moment I called to schedule my first visit through the surgery and follow-up, I had the highest-quality medical care and most personal experience I could ever expect.
