What People Say About Dr. Timothy Shen, MD
Reply
Not a good listener. In fact he didn’t listen at all. Insisted that I had had a recent test that I had not had (his assistant finally pointed out that the test was in 2017 not 2019 as he claimed). He did not seem to care about my pain but just wanted to get through the non-exam (literally 5 minutes for a first visit!) quickly. No compassion. Oh and he man-splained me whenever I tried to speak - ugh!
