SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Both doctors that I saw were terrific.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Got watch - TV - cool.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Provider didn't seem all that concerned about my questions regarding my condition (which has been worsening).

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Dr. Shinn is great. He listens.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

DR. Shinn offered no suggestions of treatment such as acupuncture,white noise machine,therapy, he basically told me to live with it,a complete waste of time, old school mentality with not sincere interest in my suffering with tinnitus

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

DR Shinn is very professional, caring and friendly.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

Dr. made me feel dumb when I could not describe my "dizziness" so he understood. Also made me feel like I was making it up by staying my symptoms didn't notice.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Unable to help with my tinnitus problem.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Great service!

SHC Patient, Mar 2015
