At first, we got off to a bumpy start He may not be the easiest person to get a long with at first, but i will give him credit where credit is due. My surgery went well, he was attentive post op and he was great at explaining my problem to me and the risks and benefits of the surgery. His staff is nice and his office was clean. He took time to answer all my questions and went over my prognosis again to refresh my memory. I would recommend him, but I'd give caution. He's definitely the boss.

Incredibly rrogant and condescending. I experienced a singular event that instantly damaged my left ear causing chronic tinnitus. He dismissed my story and told me that the two things were unrelated. He was barely took the time to speak with me, told me there was nothing that could be done, yet had me in for a follow up visit, told nothing again and again billed my insurance, but good both times. Subsequent visits to other ENT's confirmed that the incident was likely the cause of my tinnitus.

HORRIBLE person. Dr. Shen seems like he has a personality disorder -- he completely lacks empathy and is cold, rude, and abrupt to his patients. He was unprofessional during my visit (talking about me outside the exam room with several nurses) I would rather go to a doctor with lesser credentials but a bigger heart.
