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.

Out of all the doctors I have met with at this practice, in preparation for the delivery, she felt the most rushed and not so friendly, and actually hurt me during the pelvic exam....Glad she isn't my regular OBGYN.

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.
