This was my first visit to Dr. Shah. I liked her brisk, yet friendly, no-nonsense approach. I was seen almost immediately. So far, so good.

It was quick, clear and to the point. I got my blood work done immediately after my initial appointment and was out of there in 25 mins or less. Great for someone who can only take a lunch break to seedoctor. Large and clean facilities. Liked seeing a strong women presence.

Dr. Shah was very kind. She listened to all of my questions and gave thorough, easy to understand answers. We laid out a plan to address the issues I've been having and she made me feel like I was a patientand not a transaction, which is the main reason I left my previous PCP. I will be coming back to Dr. Shah. This was my first visit to the Stoll office and I was impressed by the speed in which I was seen.

My whole visit was very impersonal. It was my first visit with Dr. Shah and she made no attempt to get to know me or learn about who I am as a person. All of the office staff seemed to havethe same attitude as well - I was just ushered from place to place without even a hello, how are you today? It seemed like it was more important to the staff to get me in and out, than to build any type of lasting relationship. Where I come from, primary care doctors not only know your name, but they know your kids names. They understand that every single person is different, so they ask about your life and your family, and not just in the context of a 5 second family medical history questionnaire. They learn about your true lifestyle and take that into account when making medical decisions. Going to a doctor is a very vulnerable experience. Excellent physicians know how to build trust so that patients feel comfortable opening up and talking about what is going on in their bodies. They allow space for slowness, aging and frailty and take time with every single patient. They recognize that people coming to them might be afraid, overwhelmed or sick (no matter how they appear) and they respond by being gentle healers who create the space for humanity and vulnerability. Though I will not be returning to this office, nor recommending it to my friends, I do have hope that Dr. Shah and her staff take this feedback into account and that in a few months they will be able to transform the office culture and offer a true primary "care" experience.

I was pleasantly surprised. Dr Shah was compassionate, friendly and SUPER EFFICIENT! I went in because I was super sick, and she asked how I was feeling and showed concern. Most importantly, she made sure that all the medications that Ihad were covered by my new insurance AND gave me coupons for some of my medications. Outside of my pharmacy, I have NEVER had a provider care so much about not just diagnosing, but make sure that I had ACCESS TO CARE! I was floored.

Dr. Shah and the whole team were wonderful. I've nursed a phobia of doctors and needles for most of my adult life and finally followed through with a checkup. I was feeling really overwhelmed and embarrassed but they worked really hardto put me at ease. I appreciated Dr. Shah's bedside manner—she was efficient but also offered guidance and more information when I requested it. The lab technician (whose name I unfortunately didn't get) was a lifesaver. She was so patient and kind even though I was afraid of getting a routine blood draw. Hopefully this is the start of more regular care in the future.

My Pap smear was done quickly but she was cold and rushed. I had a lot of questions I wanted to ask but didn’t feel comfortable enough to do so. She stopped to ask if I had questions as she waswalking back out. There was also a scribe in the room taking notes which also made me uncomfortable. If your just looking to get a Breast exam, Pap and get out of there then I recommend her but if your trying to ask questions and have more conversation about your vaginal health I would go to someone else.

I was seen promptly, but by a team of office staff who did not seem to know what was going on. First they were not able to tell me if they needed a urine sample, then they inquired for updated prescriptioninformation for something that is embedded in my body (aka: only able to "stop taking it" if an MD took it out). Dr. Shah was nice, but a bit brisk. She does her own note taking (no scribe) so my time with her felt distracted. Pretty disappointed, as I had switched to this PCP when my original left this practice. Seems like it might be time to find a new PCP again elsewhere...

The office considerately fitted me in even though I was running late to my appointment. Dr. Shah listened to all my concerns and made recommendations, as well as necessary referrals. It was also very easy to get everything done in theoffice with the lab there-- tests and vaccines. It was the end of the day and the nurse seemed a bit rushed through the beginning questions in the appointment, but the doctor quickly made it into my room and I had an overall positive experience.

Dr. Shah has a bit of an aggressive bedside manner. For some people, it definitely works! But I need someone a little more nuanced. She’s certainly not rude or unkind—I just didn’t really feel like I could say much or talkabout my issues. But overall, she got right down to it, was quick and thorough and certainly knows what she’s talking about.
