This was my first time seeing Dr. Shrivastava and I will definitely be going back. She is approachable and genuine and takes her time to make sure that you’re comfortable and informed. Definitely impressed with her bedside manner, not to mentionthe office was so quick with taking me back, I was in and out within 45 minutes.

Long wait times, assembly line service and she spends all of 5 minutes with you before rushing you out the door. I had several appointments both gyn and ob and all were the exact same. If you care about your babyfind another obgyn, you and your baby deserve better care and a doctor who is more attentive.

Dr. Shrivastava was very thorough. We just had an initial pregnancy visit. I brought a list of questions but she answered all of them before I could even ask. I didn't feel like she was rushing through the appointment at all.I think she was on the conservative side when it came to throwing medicine at pregnancy symptoms (concerned for baby) but discussed ways to manage symptoms through diet/lifestyle changes (and some over the counter medicine if desperate). She asked us several questions and was just very thorough about what to expect in the coming months, what to do, what to avoid... She and her group of doctors seem to be open to the type of birth you want to have - natural or medicated. Also, there the doctor mentioned ways that we could get in touch with her via email or by phone to someone on call 24/7.

Dr. Shrivastava is an amazing doctor, which is why I keep going to her. She is not the nicest person in the world to your face, but you should suck it up because she is worth it. She knows OB-GYN toa T and will take care of you until the end of time, even if she acts rushed or at times a little stuck up. If you are sensitive, you should not see her, but if you want the best gynecological medicine practiced, then you should. Word of warning though: she is ALWAYS behind. Do not try to see her on a lunch hour or when you need to be somewhere. Prepare for at least a 2.5 hour window when you go to the practice.

The doctors was very nice and listened to all my concerns but I waited such a long time to go into the room and then to talk to the doctor and then for the actual check up... Honestly I felt thatshe was running around between patients, it was such a long visit for such a simple check up.

My appointment was at 11 am and I left at 12:10 pm. The pros: no time spent in the waiting room; the doc's assistant was very nice and we got through weight, blood pressure etc quickly. The cons: took over halfhour for doc to come in to take medical history. She was nice but was obviously in a hurry. She left so I could change and it took 25 more minutes for her to come back. The actual appointment/ check took maybe three full minutes? She didn't describe what she was about to do, which maybe some patients like but just ended up as an unpleasant surprise. Again, pleasant but rushed. And her hands were FREEZING so the breast exam was not great.

Dr. Shrivastava was awesome! Very thorough but yet quick and to the point. The wait time was long but she apologized immediately (as did her assistant who brought me to the exam room). I had completed all the check-in forms onZocdoc however it did not transfer to the office so I did need to provide all the relevant information as well as my insurance card again. Not a big deal at all, but would be good to note that so patients don't bother filling out the information on Zocdoc prior.

My former OBGYN moved to the west coast so I saw Dr. Shrivastava instead for my annual checkup. I was so surprised by the lack of caring... she outright laughed at my concerns when we discussed fertility and trying to getpregnant. At my age (36) and having never been pregnant, it's a sensitive subject and I would expect a respectful conversation. She told me to keep trying and come back and see her in a year. It was so dismissive. Then I was charged for a well visit plus a sick visit for that one appointment. I have been fighting with my insurance since then. I would not recommend.

Though she was professional, smart, and efficient, I did not find her warm or comforting. I think she pushed me beyond my comfort level, which for my specific situation was an impatient decision. I do not wish to return. Her assistantwas very kind and offered me water and candy when I felt faint. I felt more comfortable with her than the doctor. I don't like to criticize a woman for not being warm/comforting, but I think these qualities are important for a doctor and especially for a gynecologist.
