I was a high risk pregnancy put on bedrest & given additional treatments to delay my delivery. I was complaining of extreme pain & bleeding for a couple of weeks & had more frequent visits to the doctor. While she continuedto do internal exams & ultrasounds at no stage did she monitor to see if I was actually having contractions. After 2 weeks with no sleep due tot he unbearable pain I spoke to an associate that suggested I take Benadryl to help me sleep... my baby was born that night at 25 weeks in the ambulance on the way to the hospital after my amniotic sac had come out at home. When I called to tell her.. she said that since I had called an Ambulance I wouldn't be taken to her... While I was in the operating theater she spoke to my partner & mentioned (not for the first time) that now she would not be paid for my care as she had not delivered the baby. I believe that more could have been done to delay my premature labour if she had taken the time to check everything. Even if this was inevitable it was extremely tactless to mention payment while both myself & my baby were still in the emergency operating rooms.

Pros: factual,straightforward, efficient check-up Cons: horrible bedside manner, extremely dismissive of any concerns I voiced (trying to conceive). While I understand the need to move through patients and from appointment to appointment,when women are seeing you for either a) a very personal check-up or b) at a pivotal time in their lives, eg. when trying to conceive or pregnant; would hope that a professional in her line of work would have a more compassionate approach to her patients.

She was very efficient. I went for an annual, so I think she spent less time with me than she might have otherwise.

During the exam she was so rough with me I jumped off the table in pain. She was dismissive and brushed off my complaints and concerns, didn't care much for what I had to say. Due to this experience I amdealing with long lasting fear and trauma with vaginal exams. I would NOT recommend her.

Dr Shah is the best - a really fantastic obgyn. She is attentive, never rushed, and makes you feel so comfortable in the office. She is incredibly thorough, answers all of my questions and addresses any concerns with such great care.She delivered my first child in 2012 and I've been with her ever since! I highly recommend Dr. Shah.

The office felt very clean. The receptionists were helpful at the front. The nurses bedside manner was not good--actually extremely cold. The toilet was not working and they had asked why I used it and not another (I had not knownthe toilet was not working before I had used it). Dr Shah was efficient and I was in and out. Good if all you need is an annual, your birth control prescription. Will come until I decide to get pregnant--then I'll find another doctor.

She is a great doctor. Really nice, polite and informative. However, the bathroom was disgusting, it smelled really bad and there was some sort of green fungus growing out of one of the sink nobs. It was a bit disappointing togo to such an unkept and disgusting office. The gyno offices i have previously attended were well kept and immaculate. They really need to work on presentation.

Dr. Shah was friendly, professional, communicative, and efficient. I made an appointment less than two days in advance, was quickly sent forms and paperwork via email, and spent less than 10 minutes in the waiting room. Dr. Shah sat down andwent through my medical history thoroughly, answered my questions, had a practical yet reassuring manner, and conducted my exam wuickly and as comfortably as possible. So glad I found a reliable GYN!

She was thorough and asked a lot of questions for background information. The exam was extremely quick b/c Aetna claims you only need a pap smear every 3 years. This was a little too quick of an exam for my liking.She does speak very clearly and makes sure you understand what she is asking and why.

This was the worst doctors appointment I have ever had in my life. Dr. Shah was rude, dismissive and treated me like a nuisance. I had concerns about a prior health issue and she shoved them off and didn't ease myfears at all (like most doctors would have). I could go on for hours about how awful this appointment was, but I won't because she is not worth anymore of my time. DO NOT SEE THIS DOCTOR. TRUST ME.

Dr. Shah wants you in and out as quickly as possible. She talks at you without listening back and then ushers you to the door. Not thirty seconds after a painful procedure, she didn't bother to ask if I was okor let me breathe for a minute before blitzing me with cursory information and then promptly leaving. I have no idea what she said because I was still crying in pain.
