“very pleasant experience”

I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Shen. A lot of my family members see Dr. Shen who is very patient and listens to all my questions and concerns, to put my mind at ease. Also, she is detail-oriented and professional. She took her time to explain every single detail and provided valuable advice to solve my dental problem. I highly recommend Dr. Shen.
