Customer service at front desk is discussing. No respect for a patients. Please Tae M Shin MD do something. It's very hard to work at front desk I do undestand that but with this attitude all patients will gonna chose different doctors. This is one of the unprofessional medical offices in Los Angeles and this last time I'm visiting this office. Please all patients chose doctors office wisely.

When I made my appointment, I had to wait a full month and I was in constant pain the whole month. My doctor was on vacation, so I could not get any help. I asked if they ever had cancelations, I was told NO! I showed up for my appointment 10 minutes early only to find 20 people sitting in his waiting room. I made the decision to walk out and find another doctor. Dr.Shins cattle call, mass production, see as many patients as possible everyday is not the kind of medicine that I want.
