I felt very comfortable with the doctor and the staff with the precautions in place for an appointment during COVID 19. The doctor was kind knowledgeable and informative. She was also thorough and answered all of my questions and concerns regarding moles and skin issues.

She was great for conventional medicine. I guess I was hoping for knowledge of alternative/holistic approaches in combination with conventional medicine. The focus was on treating symptoms but not the underlying issues causing the symptoms.

Dr. was running very behind and wanted to get in and out as quick as possible. Wasn't interested at all in discussing health issue. Seemed to get offended that I had questions. Spoke down to me saying what was written in mychart was "academic." This came across as her implying I didn't understand what was written so it wasn't worth discussing wth me.

I have great confidence in Dr. Shinkai and I did recommend her to a friend however his insurance would not allow the transfer. She found skin cancer that I did not even notice as an issue this routine care and the biopsy confirmed her diagnosis. My condition would be a lot worse if I did not have the most competent dermatologist doctor Dr. Shinkai. Thank you

Dr Shinkai showed professional skilland compassion.
Jul 02, 2019
Can't answer the last question because this bright physician may prove to be a far different person when she's not 40-50 minutes behind for a 10-minute appointment and at the end of the day when who knows what important personal commitments she may have.

Dr Shinkai provided helpful information during and after when I emailed her due to irritation from bandaids. She recommended an alternative which resolved the issue immediately. She also called me and left a message with the pathology results as soon as available. I had been very worried so I appreciated her leaving a message and sending me a message on my chart as well

As a UCSF patient and employee the providers I have seen at the dermatology clinic have been the best at diagnosis and treatment. I fully trust my Dr. Shinkai's judgement and also felt very comfortable with her. There was no wait time and overall it was the most pleasant doctor's appointment I have had in years.

this doctor is my dermatologist not my primary care internist. she did a thorough exam with full body scan. she arranged for future dermatology chemical light treatment and follow up appt in 6 months. she did not discuss my meds in previous three months as my meds were prescribed for post op ortho and other primary care issues.
