What our patients say
What our patients have to say about Shim Spine
Scoliosis and Spine Surgery Second Opinion
Our daughter was diagnosed with severe scoliosis and the pediatric surgeon recommended surgery. We went to Dr. Shim for a second opinion as he is an experienced sugeon with great reputation and a very conservative approach to surgeries. There is a lot of research suggesting a high percentage of back surgeries are unnecessary and we did not want to risk such an invasive surgery with one opinion. Dr. Shim's office is very clean, staff is friendly, and no wait time. Most importantly, he gave our family as much time as we needed to ask and respond to questions. We never felt rushed which is rare in a doctors office.
