Allentown, PA |
Dr shin is faboulos!!!!!!! She knows and understands me and my situation AND IS VERY PATIENT AND KIND!!!! Yes one has to wait a bit in the waiting room but she is TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!!!!
Pottstown, PA |
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 for an appointment to get her to fill them out, once she had the papers, she made me wait an additional 2 weeks just to get them back. Because of this I lost my benefits. She is money hungry don't go!!!!

She is an excellent diagnostician and is excellent with medication management.

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.
in Royersford, PA |
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, but I am going back this weekend to set up and appointment, as my life is falling apart from terrible anxiety which I had once thought was ADHD but it could be the combination of the two.
Wilmington, DE |
Dr Shin makes her patients wait anywhere from a half hour to an hour. She arrives to work past her first appointment. I have time her office visit with my relative and it rarely exceeds 4 minutes. She never knows who her patient is, does not review ant charts. She is a wate of time and money.
