Dr. Shah is very calming, detial-oriented and sweet but the that cannot make up for the wait time that was over an hour. I will however continue to visit this office once a year for an annual checkup because I do feel comfortable once in the patient exam room.

My first time visiting Dr. Shah, she was very friendly, easy to talk to, she made me feel very comfortable which is extremely important to me. Even the receptionist was very friendly. Dr. Shah was very informative and I could tellshe just wanted to provide me with all my options before I made any decisions. I would 100% recommend her to anyone.

The visit was fine. I called in earlier that day to confirm insurance, as this was my first visit. The receptionist told me that I should come closer to 4:15, rather than my scheduled appointment time, 3:45. I appreciated the realistictiming. I still had to wait about 35-40 minutes to be seen. Besides the wait, Dr. Shah asked lots of questions to be sure she understood my medical history. She also took time to answer some of my questions. The patient portal was set up during my visit to have access to blood work done.

Felt the need to give her unsolicited opinion on depression and anxiety issues that she has no business doing. Every time I’ve been (I’ve been multiple) she tries to recommend I get acupuncture and give me a coupon.... very dismissive of concerns and unprofessional.

I've gotten the sense that Dr. Shah does not value her patient's time. I've spent more time in the waiting area than in the doctor's office.

There are a few thing that I felt unpleasant about my visit to Dr. Bhadra Shah. The visit itself was OK, since it was basically for annual OBGYN / Pap Smear Test. However, I received a bill from the doctor eventhough the test was covered by my insurance. I called the office and it turns out she charged me for discussing the options of birth control. I still feel very dismayed about this since she was the one who asked and started discussion about this topic and the information she gave was pretty basic that I know already. I tried to communicate with her about how I think about this but it was very difficult and she kept insisting I am the one who is responsible for the charge since she doesn't know if the birth control discussion would be covered or not. However, the point I feel really frustrated is she "charged" me for discussing such basic issues which seems very unprofessional to me. A doctor should be the one that I can trust wholeheartedly and discuss my health without feeling deceived. In this case of my visit, the doctor was not the one I was looking for. Moreover, the office sent me the test results almost a month after my visit, which made me very anxious. I kept calling the office about the results but I could not receive it until two weeks later. Overall, I felt very stressed, victimized and deceived by the doctor's authority and the system of the office. I cannot recommend this doctor for any reason.

She's a sweet, older woman. Obviously knowledgeable. My concerns are that she lacks a energetic, engaging personality and she prescribed me medicine that wasn't covered by my insurance. I asked before leaving her office if the prescriptionwould be expensive and she said no. Her medical assistants are nice and have great customer service. This was my second appt with Dr. Shah. During my first appt, I waited almost 2 hours before seeing her. I believe she over booked appts that day. So be aware of that possibility.

She did very little to make me feel comfortable during procedures, and she talked down to me in a way that was clearly meant to make me feel guilty or bad about my decisions.

Dr. Shah is the both patient and knowledgable. She puts her patients care and comfort first and makes herself available (often after hours) via her patient portal. While her office is unassuming, Dr. Shah's team is professional and consistent.Dr. Shah is hands down the best OB-GYN I have met with.

She was very kind, patient and very thorough. The receptionist was nice but I didn’t like how she asked me my reason for visit in waiting area in front of everybody. To me that should be asked in the privacy ofthe doctors office. Very old school and traditional way of doing things

Office was outdated, but most importantly, the doctor seemed judgemental. I regularly exercise but am still a little thick for a short girl (size8/10), the doctor didn't ask me about my diet or exercise routine but not so helpfully suggestedI just "lose weight". She also acted weird when I asked for an STD test. I asked about birth control and she just prescribed one for me without asking me what I was looking for or explaining different options. I wouldn't go back.

I have had the worst experience with this doctor and office. I went in to get my annual check up and to talk to her about concerns I have been having with my period. I did the ussual test and wastold to come back in two weeks to get my results. When I went back I had to wait an hour to be informed that my blood/samples bad been lost and I had to do everything over again and then come back two weeks later. It is now two weeks later and I still have no test results and was told I need to login into a parient portal to then request my results from the doctor and she will get back to me in a couple of days. I am so beyond fristrated and do not know what to do.

Dr. Sha did not want to perform any other tests other than annual visit. I was there for my annual visit and only told her that I had an uncommon discharge after I was already laying in bed. She told me,I should have told her prior to laying down. Hence, she did not want to do any other test. Too bad! I guess I won't be going back.

She's very thorough, but short, quick and to the point, exactly the kind of appointment I would like on a Saturday afternoon! She wasvery detailed in her answers to all my questions and seemed as though she would be accessible to me if I have any more. Would highly recommend.
