I was having severe back pain and loss of sensation in my legs. My GP said I had nothing wrong, just lose little weight. Dr.Shih checked me, confirmed severe stenosis with test and recommended a terrific surgeon. Now all of my symptoms are gone and I feel 20yrs. younger! She also helped me greatly with knee pain. Perhaps the best Doctor I ever had!

Dr. VIVIAN SHIH - is an excellent doctor. She is intelligent, she listens and responds to your needs. You are never rushed and she takes time with you to understand your problem and helps to manage your pain and provide you with excellent referrals to other Doctors and physical therapy. Dr. Shih has cared for me over the last 8 years and I have made excellent progress and because of her care I feel that I have my life back. I would highly recommend her.
