About Dr. Bhadra Shah

Dr. Bhadra Shah intends to provide optimal patient care with compassion and concern for patient's health. She has treated generations of families and would love to treat any new patients in the same way. Dr. Shah and her staff respects and cares for your time and comfort. We can do our best only if patients keep their appointment and complete their forms ahead of time. Too many last minutes cancellation requires overbooking which results in long wait some time. We also have acupuncturist and alternative therapy provider (who offers help for many ailments) available in my office.

Dr shah seems somewhat competent, but her office staff is a nightmare, and her bedside manner is awful. I had togo back for multiple visits bc her office staff did not understand how to contact the insurance. Her bedside manner is very bad- she is very cold when delivering news and doesn’t understand how to interact with patients. Her office is also very cramped and dirty, with outdated medical equipment.

Dr. Shah is a trustworthy, patient provider. If she’s ever running late with her appointments, I guarantee it’s because she’s giving each patient the time they deserve. She listens carefully, has a very gentle and reassuring bedside manner, and has assisted me through some very difficult procedures. Unlike so many doctors these days, she doesn’t rush you through anything. I respect that she prioritizes doing things the right way.

Dr. Shah was a kind person, but also very outdated. I have had surgery in the past that will impact my fertility, and when I asked her about them, she said it was a conversation I could have when I am married. For a female-identifying doctor, in NYC, this was a huge surprise. Not to mention, my marital status doesn't impact my biology whatsoever. Additionally, the problem I went in to see her for was dismissed very quickly and her office lacks things like wipes, etc, to remove the jelly. I won't be going back to see her.

Dr. Shah was very sweet and the actual appointment was quick. I got there 15 minutes early since I was a new patient and figured there would be paperwork. However, I was seen an hour later than my appointment time. So the waiting time wasn’t ideal but the actual visit was fast and efficient. She answered my questions and addressed my concerns.

Dr. Bhadra is not for everyone. Not the type of doctor you go to just get a quick fix. She looks at you entirely. Don’t waste your time if you are always on a rush. That type of negative energy is not needed. She looks at you entirely from top to bottom. A real healer.

I've gone here twice and both times have waited 2 hours to see the doctor. Even when I called ahead before my follow up appointment to see if I should come later, I was assured that there would be no long wait again and that I could come in on time. Don't waste your time here, there are far more efficient places in New York

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.

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 realistic timing. 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 even though 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.
