Ratings for Dr. Thomas D. Shin
From my experience I can say that Dr. Shin is a great doctor. He is very knowledgeable. He listens to my concerns and had decided the best for me. He took care of my first pregnancy 12 years ago. Recently I had another son. He also took care of this pregnancy and delivered my baby as well. Plus, he helped a lot during 2 miscarriages I had; unfortunately both time I had to have a D&C because the sacks didn’t came out. During these procedures he perfectly explained to me what he was doing and made me feel so comfortable. I have no complains at all for my Dr. He always makes me feel that I’m in good hands, especially during those important occurrences of my life. Dr. Shin has always been very caring and helpful. He is just wonderful! I love him.
We had a terrible appointment with Dr. Shin. He missed out first appointment and we were not told of the cancellation until we were in the waiting room, then he was 1.5 hours late to our second appointment. When we finally got in to see him he was dismissive, unkind, and short. He did not listen attentively to any of our questions (we had made a list in advance since this was our 8 week pregnancy appointment). He was gruff and did not respond encouragingly to the idea that we wanted to have a natural vaginal delivery. Over all, we felt disappointed and unwelcome in his office and decided not to trust him with the labor and delivery of our baby. I do not recommend him at all.
I love Dr. Shin. He has delivered two of my babies, with another on the way. He has always listened to my concerns and addresses them as needed. He is a warm caring doctor with a welcoming personality. I trust him because I know he knows what he is doing. I would highly recommend him.
I didn't have any horrific experience like some of the reviewers here, but I didn't especially care for Dr. Shin. He didn't address any of the issues I listed on my intake form until I brought them up first, and I found his concern a bit phony. On the plus side he was quick with the exam and was patient with my discomfort during it. I would just choose someone else next time; I am looking for a doctor who takes time to address my issues.
Dr Shin was my OB and guided me through my labor which lasted 24 hours. He encouraged me to walk and get to a good place for an epidural and then gave me time to progress. Didn't push a c-section on me and although he had left the hospital before I delivered, he really supported me the whole way! I will be returning to him soon!
Great doctor. He delivered my baby and I couldn't have had a better experience in the hospital. Unfortunately the staff here is really unhelpful. It is difficult to get through to the office and schedule appointments. The wait time at every appointment has been 45-1 hour. They do not call to confirm appointments or to let you know they are running late.
I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Shin last year when I found out I was pregnant after already having one miscarriage. I am extremely happy I found him. He is very friendly and caring. He answers all our questions (my husband and I) and monitored my pregnancy very carefully. I finally have my baby and I will continue to go to Dr. Shin for care. The punctuality issue is not really an issue at his Rockland office which is where I see him. At the hospital however it is a bit of a problem but I do believe he is worth the wait.
