If I could give Dr. Shin ZERO stars I would. The Columbia staff is great so this review does not pertain to them. I saw him twice. The first time was my first prenatal visit where he cut me off while I was asking a question and rudely replied "are you going to let me talk?!" My lab results came back alarming and I never received a phone call nor did he follow up at the next appointment. He's rude, speaks in a condescending tone and makes you feel as though you're an idiot when you try to speak.
