Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Shah is the absolute best. Fast, painless, efficient. I would recommend her to anyone.
She is straight forward, thorough and informative. As always she made my hubby and I feel comfortable. Happy to have her guide us through our second pregnancy.
Super rushed! Great office and staff, but Dr. was running from one office to the next and literally only spend 5 minutes with me.
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 is great! She is efficient and listens to all concerns / addresses all questions.
Excellent physician. Smart, caring, informative and incredibly efficient: answers all your questions before you even ask. Virtually no wait time. Highly recommend!
Dr. Shah is very efficient, but thorough. She is straight-forward, and answers all questions. I really appreciate her work.
My visits with Dr. Shah was a pleasure. She made me feel comfortable about my questions/concerns and addressed them very thorough.
Dr. Shah really did a great job of making me feel comfortable by talking to me about my story before doing the exam. The wait was minimal and the office team were all lovely!
She was excellent. Very professional with my issue and called in antibiotics immediately.
Very brief meeting time with Dr. Shah, but answered questions as appropriate
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.
Dr. Shah is a fantastic doctor. She is attentive and makes you feel comfortable as a patient, making the whole experience simple.
Dr. Shah and her staff are awesome. I have been seeing her 2 years now and I have not one complaint. They are quick and efficient. I was in and out of there in under an hour.
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.
Overall service by doctor and nurse who took my blood was average. Not overly friendly. Did not go out of their way to make the appointment comfortable.
The overall visit along with the courteous staff was great. I waited less than two minutes before being seen.
This visit kind of had a "patient factory" kind of vibe, but it was fast and efficient. The doctor I used to go to in this location had incredible bedside manor though, so I think I'm just spoiled.
Felt very rushed. Most of the time she wasnt even looking at me when answering my questions and was busy typing away in the computer. Definitely will not be returning for my future obgyn needs.
Terrible bedside manner: very curt and very distracted when giving me bad news. Would not recommend to others.
Went on my lunch break and was in and out of there! Super convenient and efficient!
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.
Shes very no nonsense and efficient which i prefer. Walked me through my first gyno exam and finished in less than 15 minutes
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.
It was fast and very profresional
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.
Quick and to the point, needed it done during my lunch break, so worked out great for me.
Dr. Shah is awesome! She takes good care of you!
Dr. Shah is very informative and respectful. I would recommend her to any one of my friends.
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.
Very efficient, I needed prescription for mammogram before the visit, I called in and the office email me right away so I did not lose my mammogram appointment.
Dr. Shah was great as always!
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!
Every time I see Dr. Shah, I know that I am in good hands. She is honest and to the point. She explains all options and tells you her experience with them or a common experience of her patients (of course, not sharing names or specific details). Dr. Shah is the first OBGYN that I've been to and don't plan on seeing anyone else.
Dr. Shah was courteous, thorough and straightforward during the exam which I really appreciated. She addressed all my concerns and was great with follow up. Would highly recommend.
I was optimistic that the negative reviews about Dr.Shah's office were wrong, but unfortunately everything they said about the long wait time and rushed, impersonal experience were correct. I would recommend if you need a last minute appointment as I was able to get one the night before, but not for long term care. I also have to question their sanitation and confidentiality. My papers I filled out pre appointment were just left thrown under her desk while gloves were not worn for my examination or lab work. Also, I witnessed them cleaning the examination tools in the sink with dish soap and a sponge...needless to say I will not be going back and will be seeking another exam elsewhere as I am worried about cross contamination and health issues being over looked.
It's my first visit but I thought Dr. Shah was very attentive. She's very thorough easy to communicate with. Lovely facility.
The visit was fast, but a little too fast in my opinion. The exam was also somewhat painful - a problem I never had as a patient of Dr. Warmsley. The staff was great and I love how clean the office is.
Nice Doctor. Took her time to listen to my concerns and offer honest opinions.
Doctor Shah is extremely professional. She addressed all my questions, gave advice.
The doctor was great. I was a little annoyed that someone messed up my appointment time and so when I arrived for my 3pm appt, I was told that they had me scheduled for 2pm, which meant a longer wait while they shuffled things around to accommodate me. The office was pleasant, though, and luckily my son didn't get too antsy. I am happy we chose this practice.
Good doctor, but do not expect in and out. Wait times are extensive.
She is very knowledgable and through. Answers all my questions.
Dr. Shah basically walked in and talked to me for 2 minutes (my 32 week pregnancy appointment). She was very monotone about everything and I felt like she spoke very quickly and from a script. She listened to the heartbeat for a few seconds and was in and out super quick. It wasn't exactly the best experience from a doctor I've had. There are others way better in the practice.
She was so thorough and so professional. I felt like I was being examined by an expert and that was far more calming that warm fuzzy fluff. She was also very inclusive (I am a lesbian) and her questions made me feel very comfortable and understood. I will definitely be making her my permanent gynecologist and will highly consider her when planning my family soon.
I love Dr. Shah worth my trip into New York once a year.
Dr. Shah is amazing! She listened to all my concerns, and made the entire exam process as smooth as possible. Highly recommended!
I have been a patient the last 3 years. She is great! The wait time is mostly short. Highly recommend!!!
She's great! Fastest appointment I've had ever. I was in and out within 15 minutes. Answered all my questions prior to exam. No awkward conversation during the exam.
Friendly receptionists and was seen quickly. All my questions were answered and the whole appointment went very smoothly!
This was the worst gyn appointment I've ever had. I found it shocking to be shuffled with 3 other patients, the doctor was literally doing several tasks during my appointment. Was told to undress and had to wait for 10 minutes in the room, naked, because she was seeing the next patient - same thing at the end of the consult. When I asked the nurse/assistant if this was normal, she said it was. Although the doctor answered all my questions, I felt like I had to be the one to remember to ask everything -- she did not prompt me in any way. Lastly, and worse of all, she started my pap smear without so much as a word -- it hurt me so much because I tensed up, and she would not pause when I asked her to, I had to literally grab her hand so she would give me a few seconds to breathe and try to relax my uterus. Seriously!!! Lastly, later on when I had a question regarding my diagnosis and called the office, the attendant on the phone was quite rude. She said the doctor would call me back "maybe that day but she's very busy." It has been days and needless to say I did not get a call back. That was my first and will be my last visit!
Dr. Shah has been my obgyn for a few years and delivered my son! She is amazing, warm, caring and efficient! She answers all my questions before I even ask them, thank you!!!!!!
Dr. Shah is detailed and on point. You will not regret it. Loved the service and friendly staff.
Dr. Shah was great. She had an excellent manner and was very thorough.
My visit went great. Dr. Shah is very professional and is very informative. She gets to the point quick but you still feel connected. She's very thorough and will return!
She was my doctor years ago. I left this office b/c I became a stay at home mom and it was earlier to go to someone closer to where I lived. Now that I am back to work, in the city, I am back to Dr. Shah. She is much better than the doc I dealt with by my home.
I was treated with zero respect. She talked down to me when I asked questions and the whole appointment felt rushed. Will not be returning.
I had a pleasurable visit with Dr. Shah. She really took the time to listen to my concerns, and recommend the best practices going forward to make sure i was ok. She explained everything in detail, and didn't make me feel like she was passing judgement on me either. I am relieved to have a medical professional who is not just attempting to get me in and out of the office, but wants to get to the bottom of my condition.
She met with me before my appointment which was nice, but she rushed through the actual check up and was a bit rough.
Though I've visited Dr. Shah before, I was truly disappointed with my last visit. I sat in the waiting room for 30 minutes and was immediately irritated. I don't mind waiting, but the receptionists should have had the courtesy to let me know the doctor was running late, or should have apologized that they were behind schedule. Finally, I got into the doctor's office. The woman who prepped me to see the doctor was fine, but wasn't at all warm or personable. The doctor asked questions about my health history that she should have had documented, and I was confused as to why she didn't know these things. My exam was quick, and I felt like I was an object on a conveyor belt rather than an individual person. I had questions for the doctor and didn't feel that I was provided a window to ask. I usually have a good experience with the doctor, but was surprised at how impersonal my entire visit felt. I'm not sure if that's just "NYC" culture getting in the way, but I feel that it's important to be able to connect to your doctor. Disappointing.
Loved her. Beautiful office, helpful staff. But Dr. Shah was amazing - I came in with a complicated issue and she was determined to solve it! And indeed she did. I'm so appreciative of her, and she'll become my regular obgyn here in the city now! Only complaint is long wait time in the office.
She was very thorough and listened to my complicated issue and FINALLY resolved it (after I had gone to another dr. for literally 4 months with no improvement in my condition... later learned that Dr. was fired from the practice...) Highly recommended. She's also SUPER quick which is always a plus when you're in those stirrups, na' mean??
It was very quick. I would've liked it for her to be a bit more warm. However, she seemed like she was thorough with the examination. The reason I was there was to get more information about family planning and I did share with her that I was planning to get pregnant. I wish she would've given me more information about it.
Dr. Shah is always very responsive and professional and has been a terrific gynecologist for me for 8 years now: excellent and thoughtful and sharp.
Dr. Shah gave birth to our beautiful son and has been an amazing Doctor over the years for all questions and concerns.
I saw Dr. Shah two years in a row. At first, I appreciated her direct manner of communicating. But my second experience was miserable. I usually have a high pain tolerance, and prior to getting tissue removed for testing, Dr. Shah assured me it wouldn't be bad at all. The procedure was excruciating as her tool did not work (so she had to do 2x the amount of "punches" in an attempt to get tissue samples, switched her tool, and in the process, cut off my IUD string). Dr. Shah was incredibly dismissive of what was some of the most acute pain I've ever felt in my life. After the procedure I felt scared by how much pain and stinging I felt, as Shah insisted that I should have been just fine. She implied that my pain was psychological rather than physical. She was incredibly curt and dismissive. I would not recommend.
Great. Only thing is i had implemented all my med info online prior to the appointment and yet they made me fill in the info on paper again when i got there.
She was great - very real and nice. She shared opinions and gave knowledgeable advice but ultimately left decisions up to me. I will definitely go back to this doctor!
Makes you feel
I had a very unpleasant experience with Dr. Shah. Pros: -I liked that we sat in her office before hand to address concerns and discuss my visit, as I was a new patient to her. -I like that they have a portal for viewing results online. -I was seen within 10 minutes of arrival Cons: -The whole office I found to be very dirty. The exam room has greasy garbage bins and dirty looking counters. Dr Shah's office had paperwork scattered EVERYWHERE. I could actually fully read and see several confidential letters lying around with patient's names on them. She also had dirty lunch containers laying around. When her assistant took my vitals, she jotted them down on a lunch napkin! -The pap smear itself and breast exam went fine. However, when she checked my ovaries, it was very painful. I've had at least a dozen exams in my life so far and I've never had somebody squeeze and push at my stomach and ovaries so hard that I actually yelped out in pain. It's been over a week and I'm still feeling discomfort from it. -She also just seems very miserable, cold, and impatient. I don't need teddy bears and hugs from an OBGYN, but I do want to feel that I'm receiving proper and compassionate care. I will never return and wouldn't recommend her.
I highly recommend Dr Shah. I have been going to her for years and have sent friends and family to her and they really like her as well. Some people mentioned that she is not that personable, but I disagree, she is just very professional. Honestly, my doctor doesnt need to be my best friend, she needs to keep me alive and healthy and I trust Dr Shah to do that. I also discussed my thyroid issue with her that I was recently diagnosed with and she was very knowledgable about that and helpful. Dr Shah is a total pro.
Appointment felt really rushed. Willing to give it another try, but if it's the same next year I'll look for another doctor. Rushing through appointments just makes me feel like things could get overlooked/missed during the annual exam.
She was very nice and competent. I will go back to her.
What a wonderfully pleasant (and short!) annual checkup. I am highly recommending her to all of my female friends.
Dr. Shah was polite, friendly and thorough. She went over my gynaecological history and concerns with me before doing a comprehensive exam. There was zero wait and the front staff were efficient. Most painless pap smear I've had!
Wait time is ridicuclous just for the doctor to barely greet you and only spend 5-10 minutes with you
Everything about my visit was perfect. Dr. Shah was amazing! Very gentle and answered all my questions! I would recommend Dr. Shah anytime.
Dr. Shah was very attentive and welcoming of questions and concerns. But also, quick and right to the point. Perfect combination.
She was great at what she does and very professional. I felt kind of rushed. I usually prefer a doctor who sits down and talks to you and makes sure you have every question answered.
She is very thorough and listens to all my questions and provides answers.
I thought she was great. Very efficient and I liked how she was thorough but respectful of time.
Very nice, understanding, not long wait time to see her. Great Doctor.
I saw Dr Shah for a second opinion to a medical procedure. She took the time to review options, show me diagrams, review pros and cons and do a through exam. Dr Shah was very helpful. I may switch her to my regular GYN.
She was great - one of the best experiences at the GYN ever.
Felt like i was rushed.
She made me feel very comfortable, answered my questions and is very comprehensive.
I thought that she was very to professional. Gets right down to business (which I am a fan of) and is willing to answer any questions that you have. The office was efficent and helpful. For a quick in and out check up it was exactly what I wanted.
Dr. Shah was knowledgeable, personable, straightforward, friendly, and practical. Highly recommend.
My visit with Dr. Shah was excellent! She's always been very helpful to me with the knowledge and advice that she provides.
I have been seeing Dr Shah at LexOBGYN for 4 years now and have nothing but good things to say about my experience with her. She is quick and to-the-point during routine check ups which I appreciate. However, if something abnormal does come up, she is extremely helpful! On one occasion rather than having me come into the office, she was answered all my questions over the phone free of charge. Another time I needed to see her right away and she was able to squeeze me in at the last minute the day-of. I've referred many other patients to her who all had similar good experiences!
Straight to the point. In and out annual visit.
Great physician, thank you so much.
Dr. Shah is quite nice and professional, but it always feels like she is in a rush. Every patient doesn't get good amount of attention from her.
She is awesome. She's very professional, but also hilarious. She was highly knowledgable and willing to answer any questions I had, and she did so very thoroughly!
Dr. Shah is a pro and always answers questions thoroughly and with excitement and care.
Very quick. Felt rushed and insincere. Front office staff are very nice however.
Dr. Shah is always accommodating, thorough, and professional. Out of all of the doctors I have to see she is the best.
Dr. Shah is straight to the point and doesn't sugar coat things, but in a very comforting way. Instead of saying a bunch of words that only doctors understand, she sat down and drew a diagram explaining exactly what my test results meant. I highly recommend going to Dr. Shah and her helpful staff.
Dr. Shah is great. I recommend her to all my friends. If I ever have a baby in NYC, I would absolutely want her as my doctor.
Loved my visit with Dr. Shah. I waited maybe five minutes to see her. Dr. Shah is fast but very thorough, she answered all my questions and has a great sense of humor. I would definitely refer friends and family to her.
Dr. Shah is informative, to the point, and fast. She made sure all my questions got answered. I would come back.
My visit was great and knowledgeable.I felt like a patient in great hands
Dr. Shah was very professional and patient. I would certainly recommend her, and already have to a friend. Her office is also very conveniently located to the subway.
Professional and fast, knew what she was doing. Exactly what I was looking for.
Dr. Shah was very expedient and knowledgeable. Gets the job done fast.. But perhaps too fast. I went in for an annual exam/pap smear and let's just say she wasn't the most gentle about the situation. It was a little alarming and more than just uncomfortable.
Dr Shah is cold and not very welcoming. She knows what she is doing; however it feels like she's rushing you out. I was slightly put off by how dirty the treatment rooms were. They should make more of an effort to keep the office clean and sterile for patients.
Dr. Shah is really thorough and does a great job. What I have appreciated most about having her as a doctor is her willingness to answer questions over the phone. I have called with a few concerns over the course of the year, and she has helped to talk me down and help me better understand my body. Thanks Dr. Shah!
I love her because she is so kind and answering my questions Every time I see her smile I feel in good hands and all my friends who I recommend her for them saying the same things and continue with her
Very nice, made me feel at ease.
Dr. Sha was professional, knowledgeable and friendly. I felt a bit rushed during the visit but at the same time, glad the annual exam was completed quickly. The staff at the clinic was friendly also.
Anu Shah was very straight forward and helpful with my questions. I found her to be very comfortable in demeanor and professional.
Hardly any wait time, quick and thorough appointment
Though my first time, she was so fast to explaning or listening...Clinic wasnt hiygienic...I saw the rubbish arround of the bedside... She didnt give me contact information about any question or concert to ask...Im still still waiting to test results.. despite of 2 weeks/
Dr shah was very helpful and knowledgable. I would definitely reccomend her
I really like this doctor, but I was there for an hour before I was seen.
VERY professional, I will definitely go back!
Dr. Shah is not an ultra warm-fuzzy type of doctor, but she is a very intelligent, diligent, very thorough and an extremely knowledgeable professional. She moves efficiently and quickly, but not in the way that is harried - just very confident and practical. She takes the time where necessary, and is available when needed. She will answer any and all questions on point, is very responsive with phone calls. If you need someone who hand holds you through every single step of a gynecological exam probably she is not the doctor for you. I personally think she's great, and it makes me actually trust her more that she can do an exam, and have a conversation at the same time. It shows that she is an even, calm person who does well under pressure (great qualities for the OB part, especially - she delivered my child so I have firsthand knowledge). I have been with this practice for over 7 years and have been very satisfied.
Dr Shah has been my doctor for 5 years and she is amazing. I look forward to seeing her yearly and who ever looks forward to seeing their doctor.
I saw Dr. Shah in an emergency when my regular obgyn was out so the wait was long because I didn't have an appointment. Dr. Shah was thorough and answered all my questions; I would highly recommend her.
She was very good. She answered all our queries patiently.
Knowledgeable, very direct. No BS.
I have been a patient of Dr. Shah's since 2006, she has consistently been a great doctor. Very relatable and accessible, takes the time to answer all of your questions and returns phone calls regarding follow up questions.
She's wonderful! Straight to the point, but very kind and informative.
Left without any answers and feeling like I had an incomplete visit. The wait time and office staff is never my concern would just like a good Dr. She was quick and didn't give me enough exams. If you are looking for a quick yearly exam I guess she is fine, but if you have any concerns or questions she is the wrong Dr. Wait time was fast, but that is probably because she rushes through all the patients. Also, you do not ask patients WHICH test they would like, I am not a Dr. I do not know which tests I need to figure out my medical issue. And my results were mailed back to me which I thought was odd.
I've been going to Dr. Shaw for a little over a year now and find her to be very professional, smart and reliable. She's really kind and friendly. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends!
Dr Shah was nice, thorough and professional!
Very pleasant, and she is very knowledgable.
She is great. She patiently answered all my questions in detail.
This was my first visit with Dr. Shah. I was very happy with this visit. She was very clear and concise answering my questions. I also felt she listened carefully to my concerns. In terms of the general practice, the waiting room is nice and bright with ample seating. It was also very clean. Blood work can also be done right in the office, which is also a plus!
Dr. Shah was efficient with the exam and to-the-point in our conversation. It made for a quick but thorough appointment. I appreciated getting it all taken care of without wasting any time.
She is super quick and to the point. Bed side manner is not her top priority. Getting down to the root of the problem and solution is.
I have been seeing Dr Shah for 5 years now. I started with another doctor in the practice and actually switched TO her because I liked her so much. She has seen me through 2 pregnancies and delivered my second child. Here is the lowdown on her: I see a lot of negative feedback about her being aloof and abrupt. I kind of see what these people are saying. She is incredibly busy, as are the other doctors in the practice. If you need a ton of personal attention and hand holding, she may very well not be the doctor for you. But in my experience I find her to be incredibly smart and talented (which to me is way more important than being my BFF). She always asks about me, asks to see photos of my kids, tells me about her family. Yes, this practice is very busy. Your appointments will be somewhat brief and to the point. But never, ever at the expense of your care. Frankly I have always appreciated the efficiency of the practice. If you have a job and kids and a busy life, it's nice to not have to sit around there all day - it works like a well-oiled machine. Dr Shah is very real and will give you straight-talk advise. I highly recommend her and the practice.
She is nice, straight to the point asking medical history and getting the job done fast and quick.
Dr. Shah is amazing! She took great care of me.
Very thorough and professional. Exam was fast, but not rushed. Dr. Shah was very open and provided multiple opportunities for questions, discussion, etc. Even took care of of helpful little things, like calling in my prescription to my pharmacy before I left, so it'd be waiting for me to pick up right away.
Dr. spent maybe 5 minutes with me, didn't introduce herself, didn't ask if I had any questions. The whole appointment felt very rushed and unwelcoming.
Has an open manner that makes you feel completely comfortable. Extremely personable and professional. It's a hard match to find!
My visit with Dr. Shah was one of the most unpleasant doctor visits I'd ever endured. It was clear she had overbooked for the day and was rushing through my exam. My actual physical exam, while brief, felt more like an assault than an exam. She did not explain to me anything that she was doing as she was doing it and merely rushed through the entire procedure. I was left in tears in the exam room by myself because of the discomfort of the whole situation. However her staff was personable and friendly, especially the front desk staff who answered my questions about insurance succinctly. I will not be going back to her and urge you to think twice before choosing her as your ob/gyn, unless you don't mind being treated like a piece of meat on a slab.
The Doctor was fine but the office was horrible. Takes forever to get anyone on the phone and they are not good about extending your prescriptions. Which is absolutely ridiculous when its for typical birth control.
Arrogant and cold woman. Stay away
Dr. Shah was extremely quick and made me extremely uncomfortable. To the point where I actually felt bad after the appointment with her. I went in for an annual exam and to ask her about alternate birth control methods and she brushed me off as if I should suck it up with what I have, which has been causing me physical problems. When I kept pressing her for more information and she finally relented, asking her any questions was impossible. Her desire to hear what was going on with my body was ZERO. Definitely changing doctors and I would not recommend her, though I'm sure Lexington OB GYN has other great doctors.
Dr. Shah was fantastic. She saw me very quickly, provided a thorough exam, and listened to each of my concerns. I found her extremely pleasant and attentive, and would absolutely see her again.
I have been seem Dr Shah during my pregnancy (my due date is in 4 weeks). She has provided me a great assistance and attention. She also has a lot of common sense and is reasonable with her recommendations which I really appreciate.
Dr. Shah made me feel very comfortable discussing my health issues; very professional, caring and knowledgeable.
It was good but it took an hour to see her, she said usually it's not that busy.
All the reviews were pretty true-to-form... I went for a routine yearly exam, and Dr. Shah was super fast, almost to the point of being gruff. If you're looking for a doctor to build a relationship and feel more-than-anonymous with -- don't know if this is your place. But if you just want to get in and out - she's probably a good option.
Wonderful and very Professional and great rapport. I will keep her as a doctor.
This was probably the fastest appointment I've ever had. She was very quick, a little too fast at certain points. She could be a little warmer to new patients, but otherwise it was fine!
Dr Shah is professional, but not very personable. Long waits in the waiting room, to get examined after the initial consultation, and to have blood drawn by the nurses.
I read the reviews on ZocDoc before I booked the appointment and they were pretty accurate. She's definitely direct and to the point. She speaks really quickly, since I'm sure a lot of this stuff is very routine for her. She is indeed a bit rougher than my past experiences. If you're looking for something quick and not very "relationshipy" it's a fine choice.
She seems professional and answered my questions. But she talks very fast and it made me feel the check up was a bit more rushed than necessary.
i personally appreciate dr shah's 'get to the point' mentality and appreciate her swiftness.
Although I thought she was very nice, she was extremely rough even though I kept saying "ouch". I felt rushed while being examined. The staff was also very unprofessional. I could hear their conversations regarding the men in their lives and the receptionist at the front was making it obvious in her conversation with her coworker that she did NOT care about her job or the well being of the patients.
I am happy with it
I am a first time client and I liked my visit with her very much. It was my first time ever seeing an OBGYN and it was a comfortable experience. She saw me right away and the people at the front desk were extremely helpful when I had to fill out my paperwork. Dr. Shah is very good at answering all your questions with clear, straightforward answers. She explained everything that she was going to do thoroughly before my examination, which put me at ease so I knew what to expect. I left the office feeling satisfied and would definitely go back for an annual check up.
Dr. Shah was very thorough and informative. I went in extremely nervous not knowing what to expect, by the end of my appt my nerves were gone and I felt knowable of whats to come of my pregnancy!!!
Dr. Anu Shah was excellent. She made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions. I left the office feeling very educated and less worried. The reception who took care of me was also great. There was almost no wait time or additional paper work considering I filled all the forms prior to my visit. I definitely recommend Dr. Shah to any female.
Loved DR Shah, very knowledgeable and caring. Listened to all my concerns and recommended the best treatment for my PCOS.
I find her very cold. Also, she seemed annoyed that I wanted an annual ultrasound since there is a history of ovarian cancer. When the ultrasound showed uterine polyps she claimed I did not need further testing or treatment. I was not comfortable with this so I got a second opinion which differed and went with that one.
Great! Quick and easy
She was thorough and friendly, but the visit felt extremely rushed, and I waited a bit longer than I would have liked.
Awful, awful, awful. I heard Shah have an entire sensitive medical phone conversation with a patient--while in my gown waiting for the her--since she was sitting with her office door wide open. And that was the best part! Her office is wildly incompetent--they billed my insurance incorrectly and took over a year to fix it, all while blaming me for their error. Avoid!
Very speedy and efficient! Front desk was really nice!
The appointment started inside her office, where she sat in front of her computer asking questions and I assume taking notes because she didn't really make eye contact. I personally did not care for that. I believe you can engage with your patients and still do you job. The check up was a quite rough and painful. I had been to another doctor and nothing ever felt as uncomfortable as I felt with Dr. Shah. I don't think I'll be coming back to her because I do not appreciate being handled so roughly.
Dr. Shah was very nice and efficient. There was no chitter chatter - definitely got right down to business.
Friendly doctor who is very knowledgable and does not rush through your visit. I would recommend her to anyone.
I chose her based on good reviews on ZocDoc and figured it would be a quick in and out because all I needed was to renew my birth control prescription, but I was kept waiting for 45 minutes past my appointment time while the doctor ate her lunch (at 3 pm). I get it, you need to eat, but to wait around for 45 minutes and then feel rushed through a 15-minute appointment just felt unprofessional. The office was nice, though, and the staff was relatively friendly. Seemed like the pregnant patients going in and out were happy with the service, so maybe they're more focused on the expectant mother set.
Excellent doctor. Vry sincere, patient & detailed. Made me feel very comfortable. Office staff was pleasant, polite & helpful. very good experience.
Very professional and attentive. put me at ease and answered all my questions really well.
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.
She was very polite. Straight to the point, not much small talk. Then again, most people probably don't want to talk in these awkward appointments anyway. She was clear and made me comfortable.
Great experience, the office is very clean, Dr. Shah is easy to talk to and very knowledgeable. I'm happy to find a new gyno in the city.
She was very matter of fact. She didn't waste my time or sound patronizing. She answered my questions clearly and seemed genuinely interested in solving my issues. She checked with me about which tests I was interested in having (so there weren't unexpected costs). She then followed up personally via telephone to explain my results and the prescription she sent to the pharmacy (on a holiday, no less). I will definitely use her as my OBGYN going forward!
Dr. Shah was great she answered all my questions. I'll definately keep seeing her and will recommend to anyone.
She's the best. She takes time with her patients, and she has amazing bedside manner.
Very efficient and to the point.
Very efficient. Not particularly friendly, and seemed a bit rushed, but she addressed the concerns I brought up and seemed to be thorough.
She was great!!! It was a great experience.
She was very nice, to the point and on time. The front desk personnel were extremely helpful and kind.
She was professional and caring. I had a good visit.
Dr. Shah was very friendly and she answered my questions well. The people at the desk were nice and efficient.
Dr. Shah was great and the office atmosphere was very welcoming. Will definitely come back and reccomend to friends
I felt like I was being rushed out and when I was trying to discuss some problems, her answers were rushed. I felt too intimidated to discuss everything I had meant to.
Dr. Shah is no nonsense but compassionate. Office staff are friendly and competent. Just wish the wait was a little shorter.
She is impressively knowledgeable for such a young doctor! She is very down to earth, but still very professional. Dr. Shah is very respectful of her patient's hectic New York City schedules, she gives the quickest, yet most thorough PAP smear I have had in the city!
Very little bedside manner or care. I felt like a lab specimen versus a human visiting her doctor. In and out. No patience for counsel.
Great experience, Dr. Shah was informative, thorough and helpful. The entire visit took less than 30 minutes, which was nice.
