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 more questions, they only gave me vague answers. Wouldn’t recommend.

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 more pass 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 have a knowledgeable doctor take care of you and get you in and out.

Dr. Shah is kind, informative and professional. Her visits are super quick and thorough -- I truly love seeing this doctor! She noticed that I had gotten engaged since my last visit, and recommended ways to handle wedding and honeymoon-related issues (such as sharing the latest Zika/pregnancy guidelines following honeymoon travel).

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't long, 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.

I waited for 30 mins and was then seen for less than 10 minutes. I felt extremely rushed and as though I couldn't ask questions - I didn't leave feeling as though my concerns were taken seriously or thought about thoroughly.

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 a warm, 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 my exam 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.

I went to have a meet & greet with the Dr. and I must say compared to the other doctor I was seeing, her office staff was amazing, really helpful on the phone and once I was in the office. I just felt like they took the time with me and I didn't feel rushed. It's really those little things I think make a difference when you are seeing a practice.

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 point she 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.

Dr. Shah is perfectly nice and efficient. She definitely isn't there to chit chat, which is good if you're in a rush; but sometimes it feels as though the appointment is rushed and that she is just going through the motions.Overall, the location of the office is convenient and Dr. Shah is good but in terms of developing a relationship with a Dr., you might want to look elsewhere.

She was not attentive at all and I felt rushed during my appointment. Her lack of attention to my concerns ended up with me having a more serious illness than I needed had she listened.

Dr. Shah is a good doctor, but a little too brisk and no nonsense for me (as my friend who recommended her described her). My initial exam was so fast and abrupt, I felt rushed and that the exam wasn't the most gentle. She talked so fast and was out of there so quickly I missed her instructions to go to the lab to have blood drawn. I came back for a follow-up for a persistent problem, she said all was fine, so I'm now looking for an alternative GYN.

Dr. Shah was efficient, professional and I had a great appointment with her. I had previously seen an out-of-town older male gynecologist and hadn't felt my needs were met as I became sexually active, so I found Dr. Shah. Very happy about the switch!
