    How was your appointment with Dr. Shih?

    Jul 12, 2022
    Dr Shih is a caring kind doctor that doesn’t rush you out the door, he listens which isn’t typical these days. He helped me get tests that I wouldn’t have been able to get and the results showed that I had precancerous polyps and if I would have waited till other doctors wanted me to wait till, I would have had full blown cancer. He is great!
