A very special doctor

For many years, I was able to avoid surgery. Then my pain got worse and I needed surgery. I do not accept blood transfusion because of my faith, but Dr. Shin told me that's not a problem because he has done surgery on lots of Jehovah's Witnesses. I had a spinal fusion operation and Dr Shin told me I hardly lost any blood. I am so grateful to be feeling better.

The worst surgeon

People who require back surgery really need to find another doctor to perform it. Dr Shinn, is shad, unprofessional, and unreliable. He left many patients in the lurch when he closed his practice in Columbia, and the transition to Brooklyn, MD says it all. Even if you might experience some good, don't expect it to last, his first, last and always suggestion for major back surgery after a few token alternatives, is egregious. Stay away!
