Qualifications and Experience
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.
Verified Patient Reviews
Dr.Bhadra was really nice and answered all my questions. The wait wasn’t long either.
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.
She is knowledgeable, thorough and so sweet!
I would highly recommend Dr. Shah to someone. She helped me with not only what I came in for but informed me about other medical issues that I should be aware of. Very considerate, knowledgeable, and professional.
I was very impressed. She answered my question and reassured me about my concerns. I felt very comfortable with her.
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.
Dr. Shah was very thorough and addressed all my needs. I'm glad to have her as part of my medical team.
Professional, kind and will give patients the time to explore what is the cause of illness/ issues.
Helpful & kind!
Dr. Shah was very kind and gentle. I went in with concerns and anxiety but her calmness assured me and she is patient in explaining things.
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 prescription would 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.
She's a great doctor highly recommend her!
It was good. She's very patient and and knowledgeable; wanting to know all the facts before deciding on a course of action.
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 of the doctors office. Very old school and traditional way of doing things
She was so calming and nice. Wasn’t rushed at all. First gyno visit and want to definitely stick with her.
Dr. Shah has a wonderful balance of caring and straight forward. I felt I was in good hands.
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 suggested I 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.
Great doctor took her time to explain everything!!!
I had to wait more than 1 hour to be seen, and the place is in the basement so there was no phone reception (at least with my service). Receptionists were curt and not as friendly.
Dr. Shah was patient and took the time to walk me through my medical issue. Very greatful for her care and professionalism.
It smelled like curry throughout the examination room and I'm not sure how sanitary the place was. The wait was absolutely excessive, waited for an hour and 15 mins.
I had an excellent experience with Dr. Bhadra Shah. She was super punctual and her staff very friendly. I made an appoitment only for her to remove my IUD, but she was very thoughtful and patient with all my concerns and doubts in minimal details.
Dr. Shah was very thorough, kind, and patient. She really spent the time to understand my medical history before making any suggestions. I will definitely be seeing her moving forward!
My appointment was at 545pm and I was not seen until after 7pm. Doctor is kind of dry and not easy to talk to.
Great first time experience.
Great doctor, very personable and attentive. It is only GYN though, no longer OB pregnancy care. It should be updated in Zocdoc
Incredibly uncomfortable experience - doctor was aggressive and combative, the office was in the breakroom (exam table is next to the fridge and the office toilet) and seemed unsanitary.
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 was told 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.
I don't mind to wait when a doctor takes time with a patient. Dr. Shah is wonderful and caring. I'm her new patient and she really took her time to examine me thoroughly. I'm very happy to go back to her for a next visit .
Very happy with Dr Shah. Managed to get a last minute Saturday appointment and she was great to deal with and put my mind at ease over my concerns.
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.
Dr. Shah was warm and easy to talk to. She was quick (but thorough) as well as efficient and made my yearly annual a breeze. Highly recommend.
Fruitful. It's worth going.
Dr. Shah was very friendly - I was a new patient and felt at ease going there. She's very thorough, but short, quick and to the point, exactly the kind of appointment I would like on a Saturday afternoon! She was very 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.
Very sweet! I went in for my annual and it was easy breezy
Good visit. I feel comfortable with her
She is absolutely fantastic and her staff are wonderful. They really care and will do everything to help you. You don't feel like just a numbered patient but an actual person that they are about.
Loved Dr. Shah. Easy-going, supportive Doctor. I came to see her, seeking out information on implant birth control options. She provided me with info on many different options, answered all of my questions, and guided me towards the right choice for me. Two weeks later, I saw her again for the procedure. Easy, calm, and supportive. It is worth mentioning that before this, I have had a somewhat irrational fear of going to the doctor, and hadn't seen a doctor in about 5 years. Dr. Shah eased my fears and made the experience easy and quick.
She is very comfortable to talk to.
I saw doctor Bhadra 2 weeks ago and haven't received my results. I called twice and still haven't been able to reach her. I am disappointed because I though she was really sweet when I met her, but not sufficient.
What a sweet woman. Thank you for making the appointment a breeze and being so warm / welcoming.
Preface: I get nervous before the gynecologist (I told her about this) which seemed to annoy her. Besides some other odd details the removal and insertion of the nexplanon was an absolute horror. It's never taken longer than 5 minutes before w other drs but this dr seemed to struggle a lot, made me very uncomfortable and it was so damn painful... I actually asked her to stop! She did not. My arm still hurts pretty bad 4 days after... I probably won't be going back.
Though the wait was EXTREMELY long, the visit was worth it. Dr. Shah was extremely welcoming, caring, professional and reassuring. She spent a good amount of time with me, as she seems to do with all of her patients, and conducted a full physical even though I came in for a different reason. I would highly recommend Dr. Shah.
She was very nice and explained everything. She seems to care about her patients unlike some other doctors. Highly recommend her.
Great listener and very patient.
The office was dated and I did not feel confident in the doctor's skills being up to date. She kept squeezing my nipples which was extremely painful. I've never had an exam like that before. I felt like she was close to retirement.
The doctor was amazing . The doctor addresses your concerns by suggesting ways to help in the patients concerns . The doctor made me feel calm and at ease . I would reccmmend her to all my friends
Dr. Shah took the time to explain everything to me - I honestly haven't had a doctor give such clear explanations before. Great doctor.
She is awesome. She was listening and very open on what I needed to do and still very precise and with good advices.
She is thorough and awesome.
The wait is really REALLY long, and it prompts me to reschedule my appointment several times. I don't care for the doctor's attitude either.
As with the last time I visited Dr. Shah, she was very straightforward and kind. My only frustration with this specific appointment was when I arrived. I arrived at the office about 10 minutes before my scheduled appointment and had to ring the door bell and bang on the door for 5 minutes before I was let in. Dr. Shah had not arrived yet and I am not sure where the receptionist was, but knowning there is always paperwork I feel the office should have been open at least 10 minutes prior to any scheduled appointment times. The proceedure itself went very well and Dr. Shah was very kind, understanding, and patient. She answered all my questions and kept me very calm...I tend to get nervous and question everything when I do.
I've been going to Dr. Shah for years, Dr. She is excellent and very professional and I would recommend her to any who needs a gynecologist.
Dr. Shah was wonderful. She was very kind and professional. She gave me great advice not just about the contraception I was asking about, but regarding my health as well.
Excellent professional, very sensitive and respectful of your wishes.
The office is not very clean, but Dr. Shah is always very quick and I trust her medical opinion.
Had to wait a bit even though I was early but receptionist was very friendly. Dr Shah is kind and gentle; I felt comfortable with her. Side note: there is no wireless reception in the office; receptionist looked for WiFi password but didn't know it. Would be nice to have that as one waits for the apppointment to start. Otherwise all was good; I'll go back.
Doctor was very thorough, in assessment and evaluation. She was calm , professional and gave time to patient. She answered all of the questions asked. I would recommend her to my acquaintances and friends.
It was a good visit. Positive, nice doctor.
Dr. Shah is excellent and takes care of her patient.
Highly informative, professional, and efficient. Personally called to see how I was doing. A little warning while on the examination table would have been nice, but overall very pleased.
Exelent bedside manners.Very campassinate
I waited an hour before I was seen, but the actual appointment was excellent. Dr. Shah was very attentive and answered all my questions. She took her time asking me about my medical background and explaining the cause and treatment process.
I have had a lot of issues finding an ob-gyn that will tell it to me straight and not beat around the bush... Doctor Shah was EXCELLENT.
I love Dr. Shah. She is straight forward and thorough. She takes her time. I appreciate that because I know she isn't letting anything slide or be overlooked. She is also kind and caring. She is soft spoken and I sort of feel like that makes me listen to her more. I will be going back to Dr. Shah for all of my OBGYN needs.
OB-GYN appointments are never the most comfortable thing is the world, but I'd recommend Bhadra Shah to anyone looking for an OB-GYN in NYC. Very professional and timely. Only pluses in my book.
I saw Dr. Shah for the first time April 8th, 2016 and overall my experience we excellent. Dr. Shah is very thorough; she doesn't overlook anything. She is very pleasant and made me feel extremely at ease. I felt like she listened to me and explained, in detail, what she was doing and answered all of my questions. I will definitely be going back to Dr. Shah!
The receptionist put me in quite a bit of financial strain by overcharging me. It took quite a while to get the situation sorted with my insurance so it was enough to make me not go back after the first visit.
Shah is one of the nicest doctors I've seen, she sits with you at her desk before and after the exam to answer any questions you may have and gives thorough explanations. It is clear she enjoys what she does.
Very bad. Extremely painful test, held me down as I screamed/cried for her to stop because it was mind-blowingly painful (she was very rough and didn't use the best tools available for the job until I was already in severe agony). I don't scream or sob very easily, owing to pride and a high pain threshold, but the experience was torturous, roughly analogous to the stabbing pain of root canal without properly applied anesthetic. Impossible to control the reaction. Made me get up and change in the other room when I just had to take one more undergarment off (top) so I had to roughly stuff my feet in my boots (wrinkling the tops and I hope they're not permanently damaged) to get there since everything else was off. Acted like I was wasting her time, tried to blame it on me when I specifically told her it was my first time at this kind of appointment and I didn't know what to expect. It's been about 12 hours since the very basic annual test she did, and I am still feeling some pains. Not normal and now I'm worried for the sterility of the instruments (other patients had noted that the office did not seem completely clean). If I discover down the line that I have some sort of STI/STD while being sexually inactive, I'll know for a fact it was from here. The positives were her post-test explanations; I did appreciate being shown the diagrams and explanations of how it was all structured. It was a good in-session followup. It just wasn't enough to make up for everything else. Zocdoc, could you please publish this review anonymously?
The worst experience I have ever had! They charged me more or copay and said they will send me back if my insurance has covered. It takes about 2 hours for all the process, but the test is only 10 minuets! It's really a bad place!!!
She was very knowledgeable and had great bedside manner.
Waited almost an hour but she was very nice and knowledgeable!
Dr. Shah is professional, compassionate and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her.
I waited over an hour- the doctor was running behind and there were 6 patients ahead of me when I got there. I had come in for my annual which is covered by my insurance but was charged a co-pay because I asked for a change in birth control. This place is a money making scam- they don't care about patients, they just want to find cheap ways to make money off of you- I will never go there again!
She was GREAT!!
Exceptionally good treatment and care with personal touch. She is like angel to patients. Except wait time...everything ..is just great... I would love to refer my friends and relatives to her. Thank you Dr.....
Wait time was long, but her bedside manner and expertise are priceless. I'll wait any day for that type of care.
You might feel like you're walking into a drug den going into the building but her offices themselves are clean and comfortable and she's very kind and helpful.
Dr. Shah was thorough, friendly, and answered all my questions thoughtfully. I didn't feel rushed whatsoever and found her bedside manner to be excellent. Her assistant was also courteous and answered all of my questions. I do agree with some other reviews about the office being less "fancy" than most -- but I certainly don't think it's an unsanitary environment. I highly recommend Dr. Shah.
She was gentle and kind. I'll definitely consult her in the future.
The doctor was very thorough, very professional and easy to relate to. I highly recommend her.
Excellent and experienced doctor.
The doctor was very welcoming and answered all of my questions. She took into account everything we conversed about and was very professional.
You wait a while but its worth it because unlike most doctors in nyc she will sit with you and talk first. I felt comfortable and heard.
I was very pleased with the doctor. she took her time with me and she was very informative.
Seeing Dr. Shah was nice except the wait time was terrible. Someone else was ahead of me to see Dr. Shah. She was very clear of her next tasks.
Best doctor I've been to in the city. Super attentive and genuinely caring. Loved her.
i really like that she takes the time to pay attention to what every problem i have and she seems to really want me to be well. easy to talk to .
Dr. Shah has very sporadic appointments, making it difficult to schedule; however, she does have Saturday appointments which is great. I went in a requested a full round of testing, and was told I would have to call her for the results. When I did call her for the results, she forgot to order one of the tests that I specifically requested, which meant I had find another doctor and go through the same process all over again. Very disappointing.
It was ok but the office is not extremely clean. Mrs Shah is very nice and explains well.
Dr. Shah is very knowledgable and friendly , she expresses geniue concern of your personal health. I was very impressed that she recalled everything from our last appointment which was a year ago !
My biggest concern about this office is that even if you had abnormal tests, you had to call the office to receive any of your results. 99% of the time, no one would pick up the phone. In most professional offices, they will call you if something shows up abnormal. Here, you need to hunt down your results if you can!
She's very thorough !!!
Very long wait to be seen, but the doctor herself was very nice and helpful.
She took her time and made sure I left her office with full knowledge from my check up. She was very professional but kind...
Last minute booking with Dr.Shah.. Most likely the last. She made me feel uncomfortable for a number of reasons, but mostly after pointing out the fact that I was chubby and mentioned "You need to lose weight". Duh, thanks for the update, I wasn't aware of my own body. Told me to cut out salt completely. Please stick to why I scheduled the appointment with you, and why we are here! Confusing to find the office in a giant old and musty smelling building. One wrong turn? Good luck! At least the woman at the front desk was a joy.
She was very nice and friendly. Very informative about the medications i wanted and even wrote me a prescription for an acne cream! Not a long wait time and everyone was really in the office!!
Dr Shah was calm and soothing. I approached her with a pretty scary issue and although a diagnosis is still in the air, I certainly felt less scared when I left. One thing that did not comfort me very much was when I was waiting for her in the examination room, there were used instruments and (looked like) another patient's samples sitting out and unlabeled.
In addition to having multiple issues with sorting out my insurance with Dr. Shah, she neglected to inform me of an abnormal test result for over a year- an issue I didn't learn about until she refused to refill my birth control. Appalling and irresponsible practice of medicine.
Terrible, terrible! Went in for a suspected STD. She was easily confused when I answered her questions about birth control history, she wanted to go back 13 years and she wrote the dates wrong, then blamed me for telling her the wrong ones. Um, girl, I know what I've taken and when, mmok? Scolded me for putting the paper gown on the right way (opening in the front for paps) and had me turn it around while she was standing there, naked. Now it's on backwards and she ripped it to do a breast exam. This is why we put the opening in the front, lady. All she could talk about was my weight (I had just run a marathon) and that my blood pressure was high (duh, consider why I am there) and started talking about lowering salt intake. Wha??? Focus, please, let's back to why I'm here. I was told to call back in three days to get the blood test results. Tried to dissuade me from getting a blood test bc my insurance might not cover it. Straight tomfoolery. Never could reach her, told the receptionist to please leave me a message with results, mail them, email them. Kept calling, Shah was never available. THREE WEEKS later, she calls me back with results. Not good ones. I could have started treatment 2.5 weeks earlier. Avoid, just go to a real doctor!
I was very nervous to come in, as it had been a while since I had a pelvic, but Dr. Shah's manner was very calming. She took very good care of me and has followed up with me to make sure that all is well. I am very glad to have found her!
awful experience. waited 90 mins past my appnt time.
My wait time allowed me to finish filling out newbie forms and open my email. I was called before reading email number two! Dr Shah met with me in her office before and after exam which I liked. Someone complained about changing in the bathroom... But it was attached to the exam room and large... What's the big deal? My visit was fast and efficient. All questions were answered. She not chatty, but for me that's ok when all is exposed! She works with skill and precision like a seasoned Dr. I didn't feel like anything extra was done to charge my insurance company. I will return.
They called to confirm my appointment (which was at 2:30), and they asked if I can come earlier at 1:45. I showed up at 1:35, and wasn't seen until 2:25, because the doctor wasn't even at the office until 2:20.
Dr. Shah is such a nice woman! She was very sweet and professional. I would definitely go see her again!
Super long wait but extremely kind and thorough service.
The place is really old. There's no dressing room, you have to change clothes in the toilet, which at the moment I had to use it was stinking.
I like her, she's very thorough and cares for her patients.
She's attentive and gives good diagnosis.
I really love this doctor. She is so kind and friendly- but the office as a business doesn't run as well as I need in order to feel satisfied. It is often late, the call-backs seem disorganized ( I still haven't received mine ) and the setup is antiquated, almost running entirely on paper.
Very kind. Good listener. Thorough and well informed.
very calming, great doc!
I like the fact that she is thorough, also she's take's the time to answer any questions I may have
Dr. Shah is an experienced and intelligent physician. She is a very gentle soul who has a great bedside manner and is very informative. She also has some Saturday hours which works well for women in who work and have busy schedules.
very impressive visit. extremely clean and organize office. Examination room was immaculate.
Very thorough and kind. Sent my prescriptions to the pharmacy for me!
Very nice, but didn't explain procedures in too much detail for a first time visit. Still, I will go back for follow-up. Office staff is very friendly and helpful.
She is efficient and warm, aligning her personal and professional experiences with your situation. I feel lucky to have found her by accident!
I typically faint when getting blood drawn, or any other injections. I also have sever anxiety when dealing with doctors especially when its a first time visit. Dr Shah was unbelievably understanding and walked/ talked me through what I was anxious about and instilled courage. Doctors who take special care like this are far and few between. Not to mention the receptionist has repeatedly been very thorough, helpful and sweet.
She was wonderful! So gentle and helpful!
Dr. Shah was very thorough, gentle and kind. She made sure to get a clear and comprehensive history, asked questions to understand my issues, and was very professional and helpful.
Dr. Shah is very personable and made me feel comfortable right away. She did not seem rushed at all, yet was very efficient.
Dr. Shah is very nice, but always expect a wait. It's usually about an hour.
It was long wait and I was her first patient. She is very thorough however and does not rush you. I will be back for a follow up.
I wish I would have found her sooner she is personable, kind, sweet, gentle and attentive. I highly recommend Dr. Shah.
Dr. Shah was professional, attentive, and patient. She also seems like a very kind individual.
Dr. Shah is a excellent Dr.
Very sweet, thorough, to the point, and honest.
Nice person, but not very "customer" friendly.
I liked Dr. Shah at first but less and less as I had more appointments with her. She is inattentive to detail, which is disturbing in a doctor, and I had to keep prodding her to get her to explain to me what was going on. She also ordered a pile of lab tests that turned out to be hugely expensive as my insurance did not cover them in full. Her office also does not call patients to remind them of appointments, which I can forgive her for but seems like an obvious thing to do. I missed one followup appointment and her office tried to charge me for it, claiming that I had actually gone to the appointment and had been complaining of and been treated for "abdominal pains." No idea what they were talking about. I can only assume they had me confused with another patient. I told them to check the sign-in sheet and they never called back.
Very lovely visit! Thank you.
Very reassuring and professional approach
She was thorough, professional and quick!
She was good.
Had to wait over an hour past my scheduled time to be seen. Also, they didn't take credit cards for my copay. They seemed nice, though.
Dr. Shah was incredibly friendly and helpful. I was suprisingly able to book an appointment the same day that I found her on Zoc Doc, and the receptionist called to confirm, which was appreciated. The office is nice, clean, but small. I did have to wait about 35 minutes past my appointment start time due to other patients, but overall, I would recommend her.
Dr. Shah was rude, insensitive, and condescending throughout the appointment. When I spoke to her on the phone a few weeks after the appointment, she was once again rude and mean to me. I found the whole experience to be negative and off putting.
