About Me

Welcome! My name is Dr. Shin, and this is my Web page where you can learn a little about me.


I was born and raised in San Diego, traveled to Northern California for undergrad (UC Berkeley) and medical school (Touro University), and then returned to Southern California for my residency training at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital. Ever since I could remember, my dream was to become a pediatrician. It was the best of both worlds: working with kids and helping people get better. I am passionate about kids because they are resilient and full of energy and joy. I love seeing healthy kids and also making the sick ones feel better so that they can get back to being healthy.

About my practice

I strive to practice medicine based on current evidence and research and to stay up to date on the latest standards of care. My goal is to work with you and your family as a team together to keep your child healthy. I stress the importance of all immunizations being given on time, including the flu shot, and strongly encourage all members and their families to stay up to date according to the immunization schedule from the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

How I thrive

I live well by playing with my daughter at the park, playing piano and guitar, and cheering on my favorite sports teams: Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Chargers.
