H. Shin, M.D.

In the era of modern medicine and managed care, the role of the physician has unfortunately been relegated to that of a 'care provider'. In my practice, I strive not only to explain to my patients the basis for diagnostic tests and treatment plans based on scientific and evidence-based medicine, but I also hope to make a difference in their health and well-being by becoming a friend and advocate they can trust...
