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.
