Dr. Shin only cares about money, not your health. Over books patients so you will be waiting over 1 hour after your scheduled appointment time. I needed her to fill out 2 papers so I could apply for government assistance, would not let me drop off or fax the papers in. I had to wait over 1 month...more

All you do is wait and wait. Don't plan anything after this appointment because you'll never make it. If someone shows up late for their appointment, don't worry, you'll be pushed back and wait even longer.

Dr. Shin is great and easy to talk to you, she is very down to business, and clearly knows what she is doing , and what you may need just from a first impression and a small conversation. I absolutely love this doctor, although I canceled my prescription a while ago, so I do not see her anymore,...more
