I was honestly impressed with the level of professionalism that I was treated with. I went in to remove my IUD and Dr. Shah was able to do it immediately and super fast without me feeling much pain! I will definitely continue to see Dr. Shah moving forward.

My visits to the doctor were not satisfactory. They took 3 days to diagnose if I have infection when I clearly mentioned that I was having indications from 3 days by then. They did not send my medicines to the pharmacyeven after following up with them for 4 times. They sent me bills for my free annual check up for which I had to follow up for 2 months.The staff did not respond well to my questions while following up and were extremely RUDE, UNPROFESSIONAL and NEGLIGENT. WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!

It’s always a pleasure having my annual exam with Dr Shah. She’s extremely talented, non-judgmental and down to earth. She gets to know each patient to the point of understanding her well enough to customize recommendations to fit her personalityand preferences. I also greatly appreciate the fact that she does not submit her patients to unnecessary tests and procedures.

I gave 2 stars instead of one star, because I liked the front desk people. Dr. Shah took time to meet with me in her office before my appointment, but during the actual exam, it was very rushed. At one pointshe said she was done, and then mentioned that she had one more thing to check. The results of my pap smear revealed nothing because she had insufficient cells. I have probably had 15 pap smears in my life and never had that as a result. I attribute that to her rushing during the swab.

Felt very rushed, Dr. Shah just threw all the information at me without giving me a chance to ask all my questions and hurried me out. My concerns weren’t addressed and when I called the office to follow up with morequestions, they only gave me vague answers. Wouldn’t recommend.

She was very brusque. Disturbingly, I heard her berate a patient who was upset about testing positive for an STD. She and the patient were in a different room, behind closed doors, but the doctor was so loud I could hear it in my examining room. It was awful.

Dr. Shah was great and the staff was very friendly, only if the wait time could be shorter. I've been going to this practice for more than 2 years, and every time I have to wait for 20 min or morepass my appointment time to be seen. If a blood test is needed, there would be an additional 10-15min wait depending on if someone is using the room.

Was a quick and to-the-point appointment. She gave good advice regarding changing my contraception and took care of it on the spot for me! I thought I wanted a personal experience with an OBGYN, but it was actually refreshing to havea knowledgeable doctor take care of you and get you in and out.

The visit with Dr. Shah was my first and I chose her because a colleague spoke of her with regard to her professionalism, good bedside manner. She was right, I was quite happy with my appointment in general. The wait wasn'tlong, she was quick to handle everything and was ready for any questions. No issues for me at all. I will be planning to follow up with her in the future.

Dr. Shah was very quick and efficient. However to be honest she comes off a little cold and transactional - almost as though reading from a script when speaking to you. The exam was extremely short. If you're looking for awarm, friendly doctor, this is probably not the best fit. However, I have no complaints about the service and she definitely knows her stuff.

My usual gynecologist was out on leave and I didn't want to fall behind with my annual exam so I went to Dr. Shah. Dr. Shah was not friendly nor gentle. This was the first time in my life that myexam was painful. I am extremely tolerant of pain but she was so incredibly rough. I was actually shocked that there wasn't any blood on my gown considering how forcefully she jammed the speculum into me and yanked it out. After the exam she asked that I go to her office to "discuss" my birth control prescription (not sure why, it was a simple refill) and she seemed extremely bothered by my presence when I walked in? I don't want to hang out and chat at the gynecologist's office any longer than I have to but she made me feel like I was a nuisance. She really was unpleasant in every way.
