Professional Statement

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.

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!

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.

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!!!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!
