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.
