Specialties

Dr. Helen T Shin has the following 3 specialties

  • Pediatric Dermatology
  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • Dermatology

    A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
    Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.

Awful bedside manner.

She does not have compassions for a child and she has an awful bedside manner. I have an 8 month daughter with an atopic dermatitis. As soon as she saw her, she used a condescending tone on me saying this is the worst it can get and why I haven't kept using steroids on her. I already tried two steroids but nothing worked, so I told her I am against using it. Then, she coldly told me not to come back. I believe that the choices made for their children are totally up to parents. Pediatric doctors should respect parent's decision even if opinions might differ, not being offended when parents would not like to follow their decisions. That's why I would not only come back to her, but would like to warn others who expect to see a "special" pediatric dermatologist, because she simply is not that doctor.

Heartless medical office - no sympathy for suffering children.

Really 3 months to make an appointment even though child is having terrible rash and bites all over body. The whole front desk staff was rude and didn't care at all about my child's suffering. They didn't even blink an eye. How can a medical office be so heartless. Very disappointing.

The worse doctor ever. She made my child's condition much worse than what it was. I will never come back to her. I wish I could give her 0 starts
