Dr Shen is a compassionate, skilled surgeon. His patience was greatly appreciated and his confidence was so reasurring for an 82y entering surgery. He and the staff at UCSF Mt Zion went above & beyond to replace my fear and uneasiness into a pleasant experience. Dr Shen personally called to update my family upon completion; and the nurse followed up even after discharge. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
