How was your experience with the doctor?Fantastic. I arrived 20 minutes early because it was my first visit and we got through the paperwork by the time of my appointment. Dr. Shum saw me right away at the time of my appointment. He had a wonderful bedside manner was very calm and listened and was responsive.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Shum was kind and professional. His physical was efficient, albeit slightly rushed due to the volume of patients waiting in the office. I had to email/call for my results a week later and was told everything was normal, though it would have been nice to get some details on what was tested for, what constitutes normal etc.

 Isn't sure about this doctor

How was your experience with the doctor?I'm updating my review of the good doctor because he moved offices and now is at 210 E 47th street (pretty much half a block away from his old office), AND!!!!! the offices are so much better.  You can actually check in, wait for the doc, etc., and not be in anyone's way.  His staff is kind of meh, And the doc continues to be pretty good.  Always a quick email away, no long waits in the waiting room (the average wait time for me has been, tops, 10 minutes.)  Looking at the down side though - he's a little too quick with the antibiotics and prednisone, so you kind of have to keep that in mind.  I've been seeing him for about 15 years now, which I think says a lot.  Is he the doctor that you'd go to if you had really serious medical issues?  I don't know.  But for the day to day stuff we all struggle with, he's great.

How was your experience with the doctor?He is patient and has good bed manner, however everything was so rushed. Te overall visit probably took me 10 minutes. He told me to email him if he didnt get back to me for the results. I never got the results after 3 weeks had passed. He may be a good doctor but it did not feel personal or that he cared for my wellbeing. I felt like another sheep.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Shum is efficient yet thorough. A rare combination in NYC where doctors tend to make you wait for an hour and then spend less than a minute actually seeing how well you are.
