Ratings for Dr. Alice Shin
I have been a patient of Dr Shin for a few years and have been to see her many times for myself and my children. Every single visit has been a good experience. I find her attentive, thorough and a good listener. She takes the time to really understand the issue, asks questions and has never made me feel rushed. She also often calls me personally with test results to discuss. The best family dr I have had in Ottawa.
Staff seems very distracted, possibly under staffed at the reception desk. Although the wait times aren't terrible, I am never seen on time. She is very diligent when diagnosing problems but I feel she is often questioning herself. She is good to provide relief to the problems you present
I had a morning appointment with her and asked her a question about a pill and its uses. She would refuse to answer me in a polite manner, rather giving me no details on what it is used for. She told me I had an angry/pushy attitude towards her that wasn't polite. I asked her about another pill and its uses, one that doctors don't prescribe and she told me everything about it and it's uses and dangers. I came out of there with no knowledge of my question that could've been answered by a doctor. Very unimpressed.
I am actually copying the comment written by someone here since I totally agree with it. Met her for the first time today and left with an extremely good first impression. Not only showed me compassion but truly listened. REFRESHING CHANGE compared to others that more or less rushed me and stopped listening after a minute or two ..
Dr. Shin was a very caring and attentive family doctor. She was probably the best I have encountered. I was sad to hear of her leaving the Kanata location but her replacement has been good - but nothing in comparison! Thanks for all your help with me and my baby girl, Dr. Shin! We're doing much better :).
