Dr. Shim took her time explaining things to me in as much detail as I could handle, and I know what to expect from our next meeting, depending on how I respond to her suggested treatment. Thanks Dr.!

Dr. Shim is excellent, as is her staff.  I think Dr. Shim has done all my colonoscopies for the past 20 years at least.  Highly recommend.

I appreciate Dr. Shim's direct-yet-sensitive style of delivery. My appointments are very thorough and I have never felt rushed. I just told the office today she reminds me of an "auntie"--that is, a family member who you really like, and who will tell you what you need to know--perhaps bluntly, but with affection.

She has amazing bed side manners, a great staff, and she is very helpful and personable, and professional.  I need to leave her practice since I'm moving out of state and I will miss her as my gastroenterologist.  I have ulcerative colitis and felt completely secure in her and her staff's care.  I highly recommend her practice.

For over 10 years I suffered from chronic irritable bowel syndrome from gall bladder removal. I went to see multiple doctors, but none were able to help. Then I went to see Dr. Jan Shim. After only ONE visit. Just ONE visit. I was cured!! I no longer have loose movements at all. I highly recommend you go see Cool Doctor Jan Shim.

Dr. Shim was excellent! She took time to listen to my concerns, my time with her was not rushed and she was thorough in explaining everything to me. Very glad I found her.

Dr. Shim is a thorough disciplined practitioner with a superior bedside manner. She takes a complete medical profile of her patient(s) and discusses his/her symptoms to acquire a complete case study prior to advising a specific treatment which, in my case, took a conservative route.

Dr. Shim is very personable as well as being very thorough with her patients. I’ve recommended her to many of my friends and they all agree

I went to Dr. Shim to get a second opinion after being misdiagnosed by another gastroenterologist. I am so glad I did because she was able to quickly figure out what had really been causing my symptoms. She was thorough and friendly — and I felt like she really cared about my health and well-being (which, believe it or not, is hard to find in NYC). I highly recommend Dr. Shim.

I was caught in the grip of debilitating gastrointestinal distress for 6 weeks with no end in sight. Dr. Shim suspected a dairy intolerance may be the cause. So, I eliminated dairy items and in a week or so the symptoms subsided. During this time I got tested for Coronavirus antibodies at Quest Labs and the test was positive for antibodies. Then I got a nasal swab at City MD and tested negative for active Coronavirus. So, I believe the virus along with my dairy intolerance made the situation much worse. However, with the use of a fiber supplement and Amitriptylene in a low dosage, as Dr. Shim suggested, my bowel habits vastly improved. As instructed, I will maintain this regimen until my 6 month followup appointment with Dr. Shim. Both my wife and I are so grateful for the excellent medical care that Dr. Shim provided.
