This doctor was condescending and dismissive from the start. Telling me that the problem is in my brain not my ears, even though I told Jim I've had pressure, a ringing and clogged feeling in my ear for many months. And though my hearing test showed hearing loss, he said I should try my best to ignore the discomfort. Later diagnosed with a disease by a reputable ENT in Burbank.

I had heard good things about him so I thought he may have been a good choice for a reliable ENT. I couldn’t have been more wrong!! This man has the character of a lying slimy coward and shouldn’t be trusted to trim a dogs toenails. The real ENT in this area is Dr Steven Battaglia. Mr Shen is as useless as wet toilet paper and will try to get you into surgery asap so he can make as much money as possible. Aside from his incompetence as a surgeon, he is also a lying little pipsquike and would be more suited to work as a janitor cleaning toilets where the worst he could do is to screw up on a toilet instead of your face. Be forewarned and seek out the real ENT so as not to be a victim of Bozo Shen!!

Not good. He only see me for 3 min. And said no problem. Go home. I paid $60 for co pay and did not get anything and he did not even solve the problem. Still dizzy all the time . So rude and cold person. Bad bad person. Never go to him. Just want my money.

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.
