Ratings for Dr. John Shin
I was referred to Dr. Shin for difficulty with my vision. He was patient, kind and thorough in his examinations, further testing and explanations to me about what my condition is. I particularly appreciated how he took the time to draw diagrams to show me concretely where the problem is in my eye. He has a sense of humour and is compassionate. Thanks for your help, Dr. Shin, and for your reassurance and follow-up.
excellent doctor, kind, patient and answers all my questions.
I've only recently had the opportunity to see Dr. Shin and I cannot say enough good things. He is extremely patient, he is a great communicator, takes the time to explain and make sure you've understood, is very knowledge able and so caring. The 4 stars for punctuality is not a bad thing. When you're in his office to see him, you get all of his attention. He does not rush you and takes the time to answer all of your questions. He is a gold standard.
I have no reservation to rate Dr John Shin as a top professional in his field and related disciplines, I have beeb under Dr Shin's care for a few years and have been thoroughly impressed by his professionalism, knowledge and caring personality. A first rate Ophthalmologist,
Dr Shin is very knowledgeable, professional& helpful. He listens carefully to patients and explains clearly in detail of their problems and his diagnosis. A doctor who sympathizes patients issues & worries with compassion and offers all possible options of cure and procedures. Even though he is very busy & with patients in the waiting room, he still takes time to explain clearly and never rush his patients. I am thankful to Dr Shin for all he does and how he did.
I was most impressed with Dr. Shin . I like the way he talks one-on-one and face to face, instead of sitting across a big desk and sometimes not able to hear. It was my first appointment and he took the time to listen, in spite of a waiting room full of people. I had a lot of confidence in him and he's a very nice man. Thank you for being there Dr. Shin.
Have to wait one hour or so more on our appointment time... mY daughter has lazy eye she's six at that time and Dr. Shin doesn't have any helpful instruments to thoroughly check her lazy eye... he just cover the eye with a tissue ? not so friendly to kids ... visited 4x and decided he cannot help my daughter..... For now I am seeking for the right eye doctor who specializes chidren's eye problem.......
I could not have been more pleased. Dr. Shin is professional, knowledgeable, and charming. I have had to visit several specialists in various fields over the past few months and have to say my contact with Dr. Shin was by far the most rewarding. Dr. Shin was attentive when listening to my concerns and very respectful of even minor questions. He is a very knowledgeable ophthalmologist willing to take the time to make his patients feel confident in his skills. I left his office with a printed report that outlined my condition and his findings. I have not experienced that level of respect from any other specialist, the report is normally 'only' sent to my family Dr. and reviewed at a later date.
