Verified Patient Reviews
Office staff was friendly despite the long wait. Nurse was personable. Doctor talked over me when I was explaining my concerns and then was dismissive and wouldn’t allow me the space to explain what had been happening with my health. I know she was running behind, but I felt like she was in a huge hurry and couldn’t really be bothered to get to know me or take me seriously. I left feeling as though I still needed to see another doctor as my concerns were not addressed.
Quick, efficient, kind, and informative.
I was late for my appointment but Dr. Hudson saw me quickly even though she had to then squeeze me in between other appointments. She helps me deal with my menopause issues.
Check in process could be more efficient. Dr and staff are great.
Super knowledgeable and quick.
i first scheduled an appointment with dr. hudson and was rescheduled for the following which was already an inconvenience but not a big deal. once i arrived i was told to pay a balance that i was not aware of and caught me by surprise. i was unhappy about it but paid my dues anyways. i waited in the waiting after that for a half hour then was taken to the exam room where i wait an addition 40 minutes. apparently i was forgotten about. the doctor was quick with my appointment and didn’t seem to concerned about my visit. she prescribed me my medicine and i left. i thought i found my go to gyno :( but this was not it.
Dr. Hudson was thorough, kind, and helpful. While there were issues with the appt time Dr. Hudson made time to see me. I would recommend Dr. Hudson to any post menopausal woman
She actually seemed very present the last time I saw her. Usually she's rushing through, barely remembers me (and I've gone quite frequently to see her), and leaves without even saying goodbye or making it clear the appointment is over. She was better this last time. She definitely knows her stuff - she's just doesn't care to create a real connection with her patients. I guess that's just her style.
My visit was at 12:10.. I arrived at 12p and was not seen until 12:40p. When the Doctor arrived she was very short with me and it seemed rushed. She prescribed a medication but I couldn't understand what it was for, when asked she threw large medical terms my way but didn't explain thoroughly. I literally had to WebMD the medicine to understand which defeats the purpose of speaking with a dr. I spoke with the nurse about the doctor's shortness. She seemed shocked and apologized. Not the best first visit to a new office. Also, I received conflicting conflicting info. Over the phone I was told they do not put in the nexplanon birth control, yet during my visit the doctor said they do, but she doesn't do it so she had no information about the procedure. On my notes when I booked my visit, I put that I wanted more info about the nexplanon insertion/removal -_-... not very helpful.
I have been a patient for years and have never had an issue. Today though the front office staff ( shared by many doctors) seemed to have many problems with new systems. Hopefully they work out the issues soon.
She is very knowledgeable and approachable. Great bedside manner made me very comfortable. Very happy with my visit.
Thorough, consise very helpful!
Overall short and efficient appt, willing to answer my questions and address my concerns.
I have been seeing Dr. Hudson for several years - I believe up around 8 or 9 now even through her transition from one practice to another. She's straight forward, kind, and listens carefully. Her current practice staff is on time and professional.
Always professional.. Staff is Great and very attentive. Dr. Hudson is the best.
Very professional and pleasant experience :-)
Dr. Hudson is very warm and caring. She takes time to answer all questions and explain the rationale for her recommendations. The exam always seems a bit brief but I have no comparison (she is my first OB-GYN). Her staff is extremely friendly and accommodating.
Shannon is amazing! I love how fast she is! I hate going to the GYN and she made me feel better about it. Thank You.
I've been a patient of Dr. Hudson's for over a decade, and I really like her. However, I do not like the practice she works with. I have asked the front desk repeatedly not to text me, because I don't need appointment reminders, health nudges, birthday wishes, etc. from a doctor's office by text. If someone wants that, then great, but I've told them on at least three occasions that I don't. They continue to text me, even waking me up at 1:00am on my birthday with a text two years in a row. I feel like I'm in a relationship with their patient management software instead of having a true doctor/patient relationship. As much as I like Dr. Hudson, I'm considering changing doctors because of the practice.
My appointment was at 1pm and I got there around 1215pm. I was seen within half an hour of when I got there and was out before my actual appointment time. It was quick and fast.
She didn't answer any of the concerns I mentioned during registration. She came in, rushed through preliminary questions, rushed the whole annual physical check up, and before I could even sit up straight, she left.
Perfect professional quote and to the point! Highly recommended !
Staff and doctor Shannon were both wonderful. Her staff were very polite and friendly. Visit was quick but I did not feel rushed. Excellent experience overall!
Dr. Hudson was extremely efficient and had excellent bed side manner. After taking some basic information, she took the time to explain to me the phases of menopause and what I could expect to experience. She demonstrated great knowledge and I left feeling very confident that I had made a great choice in choosing her during this phase of my life.
Dr. Hudson is extremely knowledgeable in this field and made me feel like I was in good hands. A good word to describe her is "efficient". Sometimes doctors who are "efficient" lack bedside manner, but I did not find that she was disrespectful or cold with me. Overall, I was very happy about my visit.
Professional, efficient, friendly.
Short and sweet visit! Answered all my questions completely, and got me in and out all before my lunch break was over.
Dr. Hudson really knows what she is doing and resolved a long-standing problem I had with a post-menopausal issue. She is well informed and very professional. I am so grateful, as I had suffered a long time with this.
The office was so efficient and everyone I met was very personable and professional. The actual visit with the doctor was quite rushed but she provided useful information and the exam was easy.
I didn't even know the speculum was in, she was that fast and efficient. The best gym exam ever
Dr. Hudson was very friendly, experienced, and knowledable. As awkward as it is to see a gynecologist for me....it was the most comfortable GYN visit I've had in a while. Also enjoyed the patient portal....always love a office that keeps up with modern technology. Thank you, Dr. Hudson.
Dr. Hudson was extremely professional and informative. The exam was quick and the staff was helpful and friendly as well.
Really caring, but also informative. Compared to a horrible past experience with another OBGYN, I felt fantastic with my treatment.
Dr. Hudson is a no-nonsense professional. She really seems to know her stuff and I am confident she will resolve my long-standing problem.
Great visit, very informed, very nice and professional.
Very knowledgeable - had a great bedside manner! Explained very clearly how all methods of birth control work. Only had to wait about 10 minutes to see the doctor.
She didn't listen to my concerns , and seemed arrogant by lecturing me about biology (talking fir far too long before even attempting to listen to my personal questions and concerns). She then said she would prescribe a medicine but accidently called in the wring during, which I had to call he office and alert her so she could correct it. The office also got my birthday wring in their records further delaying the process of picking up my birth control. This should have been a simple process and it was a multi step headache.
I've been in perimenopause since I was 39 y.o. and I swear to G-d I haven't been able to get a gyno to talk to me seriously about it until Dr. Hudson. Everyone else has poo-pooed my symptoms and talked pretty condescendingly to me and it's been so frustrating. I even went to one gyno who asked if, at age 45, I wanted to get pregnant! That must be where she makes the bucks. Dr. Hudson specializes in menopause and that's exactly what I need. She has good bedside manner, takes patients seriously. Does not rush you out the door. I was able to schedule an appointment really quickly. Highly recommend!
I've seen multiple doctors at this facility. All very helpful and informative.
Thorough, informative and nice new offices with a lot of equipment on site. Very happy!
She was very attentive and sat down and took the time to explain things in Lehman's terms and she made me feel comfortable. Love her.
Dr. Hudson was very professional and quick! It was very clear that she is very knowledgeable in her field and talked with me about symptoms that my previous doctors had not considered.
Very straight forward and to the point. Wish I felt a bit more comfortable going into depth, but Dr. Hudson was very swift with her check-up.
She was wonderful.
She is really experienced with the pep smear process.
She was very patient and kind whilst answering my questions.
I was a new patient hoping to switch over to her care. I went to see this doctor because I had a lump in my breast. I was visibly nervous about my issue and also trying a new doctor, as I've had the same doctor for 15 years. Her demeanor was very dry and cold (she didn't even greet me) and was rough during breast exam, which I figured was needed due to my concern. But she was also rough during the pap smear (which I didn't ask for). I walked out in tears... I've never felt so violated. Needless to say, I would never go back or recommend her. Besides the interaction with the rest of the staff, everything about the visit was terrible.
Bedside manner was ok- the doctor left the room after my exam and neglected to tell me the appointment was over, so I sat there for 20 minutes. Kind of weird.
she was fast, efficient, non-judgmental, answered all my questions
The quickest and most painless pap I ever had
I will always trust her. After all these years she has excellent bedside manner and will always listen to you concerns
I have been a patient of Dr. Hudson for many years her professionalism, care and treatment has been consistently excellent
She is really amazing! I am really glad I found her on ZocDoc. She walked me through every process and gave a good explanation. She also knows a lot and really catered to my own personal needs. I was blessed to have her as my new Doc.
Dr. Hudson was very professional and knew exactly how to make me feel comfortable. I was very impressed by her and will definitely be coming back here. I have never encountered a better doctor!
Good doctor and staff, but absolutely impossible to get through via phone and dont expect them to call you back even if you leave messages. No kidding! Was just there last week and was promised their phone system works but just tried and was put on hold for 15min and left a v.m. Thank goodness for zocdoc!
The last appointment at this office was the first time I actually met Dr. Hudson. I have come there several times before that day. She barely looked t me or tried to engage with me. I wsn't asked about any concerns. I didn't feel like I should bring up any concerns I had. Then the worse thing, she didnt warn me when she inserted the speculum! Very jarring. I cant say I can go there again and chance meeting her. It' a shame, I met some really nice NP's and it's a good location. She is not sensitive. Period.
Quick, very gentle, and very nice / funny demeanor! Also, shoutout to the tech who took my blood and too the time to get it in one go (I have terrible veins)!
Dr. Hudson was brusque and curt. My appointment with her was for an issue of some concern and instead of a helpful physician I got an anatomy lesson. Everyone has bad days, and perhaps she was having one. That said, she spoke to me like she couldn't wait for the appointment to be over and was a bit dismissive of the symptoms I discribed as the reason for my visit. I would not recommend this physician to any woman I know.
She was great, sweet and to the point i was in and out and still felt i was seen properly
Dr Hudson is a very nice person, professional and has good manners. She answered all my questions without any rush. I am going to visit her in future and highly recommend her to all.
Terrible, absolutely nasty. This doctor is not sensitive at all. When it came to my pap smear she was not careful and even rough when inserting the instrument and didn't seem to care that i was yelping in pain. Also does not take time to know patient and very unfeeling. To top it off: she walked out of the room without letting me know the appointment was over and what the next steps will be. I spent 20-30 minutes barely dressed in a cold room waiting for her or a nurse to stop by but no one came. i had to dismiss myself and did not find out the conclusion of the appointment. I asked the receptionist if the doctor has left any notes for me but there was nothing.
I've been coming here for a year, and Dr. Hudson is, as always, direct, fast, smart, and helpful. Make sure you ask questions if you have them; she's happy to answer but doesn't have frills or give extended explanations so if you need/want those you'll have to advocate for yourself. The staff are wonderful and I'm always treated with respect.
Very efficient appointment, everything was pretty clinical and over quickly, which I like. Probably not right for you if you want a lot of emotional support and hand holding, though I'm sure if I had needed to ask more questions Dr Hudson would have taken the time to answer them.
Quick, easy efficient.
I could not have asked for a better experience at Dr. Hudson's office. The receptionist was very pleasant and I was called in for my appointment several minutes early. Dr. Hudson has a very pleasant, comforting bedside manner and is easy to talk to.
Shannon was super helpful and knowledgable. I felt very comfortable with her and would recommend her.
My yearly exam was quick and thorough. Sex- positive as well as body positive doctor answered my questions easily and without judgement. Exam itself was very quick. Friendly staff. It was the first good gyno experience I've had in nyc in years.
Visit was great. Come to find out Dr. Shannon is also my mothers Doctor. Walk through and explains everything each step of the way. Will be back soon
Dr. Hudson was my first gyno in NYC - I have heard stories from my friends about other doctors that haven't been so positive. I was seeing a nurse practitioner in her office for a couple years who was also very good. Now that she left, I'm back to Dr. Hudson and happy about it. I trust her and her bedside manner is great - especially with making you comfortable, explaining anything, and answering questions. It's not the most comfortable Doc appt so this all makes it much better.
I'm a longtime patient. I have always found Dr.Hudson to be very knowledgeable, thorough, empathetic, and trustworthy. She's great at listening and explaining everything so that you feel comfortable, educated, and confident.
I thought she was excellent. Took her time, explained things well, lovely manner with patient. Very reasonable, matter of fact, detailed, and a plan.
Dr. Hudson was terrific! The exam itself was quick - just a routine check, so efficiency was definitely preferred - but she spent about 20 minutes answering my questions and taking me through various treatment options, which was very impressive.
Dr. Hudson saw me within about 10 minutes of my arrival. She was attentive and easy to talk to. The staff were also attentive and friendly.
Quick, friendly and direct
I've been seeing Dr. Hudson for quite a few years now and I really like her. She is super knowledgeable, always takes the time to explain everything in great detail, and she's very gentle. I strongly recommend her!
Dr. Hudson was very patient and knowledgeable - she took time to explain all of my questions. Only the exam itself seemed rather short.
Excellent and very informative!
Dr. Shannon Hudson took the time to explain everything that was happening to my body and also reviewed the list of options available to me in a very systematic way before she recommended a treatment option. I liked how she got straight to the point, she was comprehensive in helping me understand what was happening to my body, and she gave me several options and made me feel at ease about the benefits and trade offs of every one of them. I left there feeling well-informed and hopeful that my issues would be resolved.
I have been seeing Dr. Hudson for 8 years. I always appreciate her ability to get me in and out but also hear all of my questions and address all my concerns. She's fantastic.
Dr. Hudson over exceeded my expectations. She was very kind and patient. She took time to explain everything she was going to do and assured me everything would be fine. I left her office feeling happy and looking forward to returning.
I used to enjoy this office when Jessica was the PA. But, now that she is no longer there, I have been very disappointed with Dr. Hudson. She comes in and out so quickly without even acknowledging you may have questions or want to discuss something. I have been misdiagnosed twice by her (at least, I think so, according to what I was told and what I saw on the lab results - I can't even get a call back to discuss my questions/concerns, let alone cancel/change an appointment). Ladies, this is our body, if you want someone who is warm and will discuss issues with you, or an office that returns your calls, do NOT go here. I had to do a follow up appt at a different office because I couldn't even get a call back. Disgraceful. Never coming here again.
Dr. Hudson is clearly very smart, and while it is true that she is somewhat brisk, I was grateful to get in and out quickly.
As always a great appointment, treated respectfully, got called in quickly and got Dr. Hudson full attention and questions answered. She is a pleasure and i recommend her to every woman i come across that needs these services. Great Job Dr. Hudson and staff
My time with Dr. Hudson was ok. The staff at midtown 41st St were great: very nice and helpful. I was late to my appointment and they worked me to move things along nicely. The staff behavior at 9 Maiden Lane was unacceptable and quite frankly disgusting. When I arrived to the office I informed the receptionist that I very much wanted to speak to a dr b/c I had a medically urgent development the night prior. She right away gave me an attitude and told me that it was not possible and that I had to schedule another appointment. It was 9AM and there was only one other patient in the office. The receptionist then told me I had to pay right then before even starting my appointment. She charged me what I thought was the wrong co-pay. The receptionist then told me to make another appointment and I told her that I didn't want to make one and I just wanted my test results as soon as possible. This then led to the receptionist closing the door, whispering to some people, and the person who was to draw my blood called me into the office. This made me feel really UNCOMFORTABLE. The person drew my blood and promptly gathered her things and turned the light off in the room while I was still sitting in the room gathering my belongings. I was literally sitting in room in the dark. This was abnormal abhorrent behavior. I will never return to this office due to this experience. I would also like to note that many people have complained about this office on Yelp. Most of the doctors at this office have good reviews on other websites but the staff at 9 Maiden Lane have consistent terrible feedback.
I would never recommend this doctor or office to anyone. Dr. Hudson is negligent and my visit felt rushed. I went for routine tests and Never received a call from Dr. Hudson about anything abnormal so I assumed everything was ok. Turns out, not only was I NOT tested for what I was supposed to be tested for BUT Dr. Hudson never even called to inform me. It was AFTER my call to her almost 2 months later that she realized "the lab messed up". Yea OK! Needless to say, I'd Never go back to see this doctor
D.r Shannon was quite professional and caring. She spent time to explain her observations, help me relax and also patiently answered all my questions. I'll not hesitate to recommend her to others. The front desk staffs are also quite friendly and efficient. I am coming back to this clinic for sure.
she took her time, answered many questions and provided good information. Most importantly asked questions about me to make informed decisions/recommendations. I would highly recommend and continue to see her.
Dr. Hudson is delightful in ensuring you are in and out with no time wasted. Even though she is quick, she's thorough, informative, and always makes you feel comfortable. Would definitely recommend if you like information straight to the point and little wait time.
Dr. Hudson was wonderful-- my exam was quick and thorough. Dr. Hudson also explained everything, answered my questions, and provided an incredible amount of useful information that I did not even know to ask. Thanks, Dr. Hudson.
Very quick, Only took about 5 mins to see the doctor. Dr Hudson was not only very polite but also very concerned and knowledgeable. I immediately felt comfortable with her. Would def recommend to anybody. Almost can't wait to go back
Very nice and informative about any questions that I had.
Good and helpful.
Dr Hudson is very nice and has a good bedside manner, however the wait time was unacceptable. My appointment had already been rescheduled once due to long waiting times and when I came back in the following day, I had to wait over an hour for my appointment. The reception staff did nothing about it and were not able to give me a realistic estimate of when the doctor would be able to see me. This is rude, unacceptable and I won't be coming back.
I've been seeing Dr. Hudson for the past 5 years, and while she was fine for an annual check up, as I bring other problems to her, I'm getting more and more frustrated. She spends no time asking me about my personal experience, but quickly gives me a text book answer and a prescription and sends me on my way. As my issues continue to persist and her suggestions and prescriptions are of no help, I am left very frustrated and in search of a new, more caring doctor.
One of the front desk ladies was super sweet and the other one was a bit rude. The doctor was friendly and made me feel comfortable. However, a part of the actual examination (inserting the vaginal spectrum) could almost be described as violent. In conclusion: nope.
Really great experience. Didn't wait long, staff was friendly. Dr. Hudson is knowledgeable, straight forward, understanding.
She is nice, professional and highly knowledgeable. Highly recommend her.
The doctor herself is very efficient if perhaps a bit cold (but I never mind that - I'm looking for someone to keep me healthy, not be my best friend). Her colleagues and the receptionists, however, are absolutely terrible. Without going into personal details, no one in this office knows what they're doing and you're going to spend at least an hour waiting, even if you're early / on time for your appointment. You'll also be told different things by different people. I called to schedule an appointment for one thing and they scheduled me for two separate appointments, an hour apart, without telling me. They then drew blood (which was the test I originally wanted but was told that that wasn't their procedure on the phone). I'm now on day 6 of waiting for test results I was told I would have within 24 hours. Meanwhile, I'm a nervous wreck. If this office can't even keep straight what type of appointment you should schedule, how can they be trusted to take care of something as important as your health?
I love coming to this Doctor. I feel very comfortable as she makes the whole process seem like a breeze. She is very understanding and knowledgeable. She provides efficient medications so I don't have to keep going back as I know a lot of other doctors wouldn't do that since they want you to keep going back and pay for their services. Highly recommended. Quick and to the point.
Very nice but very fast. Feel like I have to speak 100 miles a minute to ask questions before she's out of there
Not the best bedside manner. In and out.
Dr. Hudson was fabulous - quick and efficient, but still thorough and attentive. She was also very responsive when I called to follow up after my appointment. I will definitely be going back!
Took me a long time to find a GYN that I felt comfortable with. When I met Dr. Hudson...it clicked right away that she was the one. Just so comfortable in her skin...it made me comfortable in mine. Good Doctor...so glad I found her.
Was seen quickly, lunch time appointment in mid-town NYC, was out of there within 45 mins. Got lab results via on-line quickly!
horrible experience and very irresponsible office.
Went in to get an IUD as I had previously discussed with Dr. Hudson. The procedure began just fine, right along the lines of what I was expecting, but there was a slight complication that caused me to bleed excessively and be in quite a bit of pain (in spite of the fact that I "should be completely numb" according to Dr. Hudson). When they were finally able to stop the bleeding, Dr. Hudson and the Physician's Assistant offered no apologies, and made no effort to console me though my teeth were clenched and I was covering my face in pain. Bedside manner was the worst I've witnessed and I was made to feel as if I were wasting their time. Overall would not recommend.
The wait was a bit long but when I did see her Dr Hudson was excellent. She has a great bedside manner and made me feel very at ease. Her staff were professional and very nice to deal with as well. Office was clean and tidy. A good overall experience.
Dr Hudson is very thorough and takes a special interest in knowing the details of any medication you have had in the past. Her sheer confidence in making everything right for you, will make you feel safe!
Another patient recommended Dr. Hudson so I was excited to finally go to a good doctor. Right before the appointment, I read some pretty bad reviews. I ended up going in very nervous. But from the moment I walked into the office, I couldn't recognize any of the negativity spewed in yelp. Very friendly and helpful front desk (how rare!). Dr Hudson was QUICK and efficient. She may not be for everyone but I appreciated her no nonsense approach.
Great--always best to get the first appointment of the day.
Dr Hudson is actually one of the best gyns I've ever gone to. She listens patiently and explains options for different methods of treatment.
Dr. Hudson is only somewhat thorough. Her bedside manner can best be described as rude and curt. She seems to know what she's doing medically speaking, but she needs to work on being nicer.
Friendly & efficient!
The wait was frustrating but I had planned for some wait thanks to your reviews. Overall worth it bec Dr. Hudson was professional, efficient, and made the visit comfortable. It is clear that she knows her practice and that is greatly comforting.
Very possibly the most knowledgeable doctor I have ever visited. Dr. Hudson is extremely well-versed in anything and everything, and it's easy to feel comfortable around her. My only (minimal) complaint is that she seemed rushed to get through my exam, and would start answering my questions before I could finish asking them.
She's awesome all around as always. Very nice and knowledgeable. She knows her stuff and is great with explaining details. I will keep coming to her for as long as she's around!
I enjoied my visit with Dr. Hudson as I found her to be very responsive, attentive, personable, proactive, and pleasent to work with. I would highly recommend her as she's very knowledgable, informative, and willing to explain all results and next steps.
I had a terrible experience with this practice. I have gone to Dr. Hudson for about six months and haven't had any huge issues but would always have to wait and found that the front desk staff was rude and incompetent. This last time I showed up for my appointment and they mentioned that they left me a message (only ten minutes before I arrived) saying that they were behind and that they would have to reschedule, even though this was the second time I had to do so. I also felt as if they were bullying me and trying to scare me about the test I was going to have. I will not be returning.
Felt as if she was in a rush. Did not get the proper treatment I needed. I was on time for my scheduled appointment and I had to wait more than 40 minutes to be seen, mind you I was the only soul there waiting to be seen. Overall, she's sweet but I personally wouldn't recommend the service.
She's amazing. Willing to answer all of your questions and makes you feel super comfortable.
Dr. Hudson is great but getting a human being in the phone when you call the office is impossible. Your call gets routed to a call hub with operators, who don't know anything and direct you to the Patient Portal... Which is equally as useless. You're better off just showing up if you have a question for the doctor or staff. Other than that, everyone that works there is great. Professional and nice.
Quickest annual exam I've ever had! Very professional, punctual, and kind. Highly recommend!
I got to my apt 20 min early as a new patient to fill out forms like they request. No big deal and the forms are quick/easy. However I wasn't seen until 20 min after my scheduled time where I was then seen in under 15 minutes with no questions asked about my "women's health history" which made me feel like something could have been missed. However Dr. Hudson was super knowledgeable and quickly assessed me for a yeast infection and gave good insight on how to prevent them/why it happens.
I waited for about 30 minutes actually in the exam room, but that's to be expected sometimes. The exam was very quick and impersonal but Dr. Hudson gave me all the information I needed and answered all my questions.
Dr. Hudson has been my doctor for the past 7 years, and she is very knowledgeable. Always very attentive and ensures that you get the best care possible.
very informative, and was very relatable!
I went to Dr. Hudson because she had good reviews but my experience with her was awful. I didn't have to wait and the staff was nice but Dr. Hudson was cold and quick, even a little rude. She was out of the room before I was able to ask her anything. I would never go back there again. It was the most uncomfortable doctor appointment I have ever gone to.
Quick, painless, awesome. Answered all my questions and explained everything for my first visit.
Her staff was friendly and helpful. Dr. Hudson was also incredibly informative and quick with the appointment, which I appreciated.
The actual appointment lasted about 5 minutes, during which Dr. Hudson seemed very rushed. What upset me more was the doctor's office coding the visit incorrectly and then refusing to answer the phone when I and my insurance company called to correct the issue. I was finally able to reach someone via email but this issue is ongoing as the office refuses to admit they coded the visit incorrectly. It's been almost three months since my visit, and I definitely won't visit this office again.
I was a bit early, the receptionist was friendly and helpful. I completed the paper work and the wait time was approximately five minutes. Dr. Shannon Hudson gave me information on a procedure I had in the morning to ease my concern. During the exam she was matter of fact, professional and answered all my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Shannon Hudson.
I went for my annual and Dr. Hudson examined me for less than a minute. Though I understand it's not necessarily about the amount of time spent, I did not feel that I had an adequate exam.
This was maybe great experience. Dr. Hudson was friendly, professional, informative and reassuring. I couldn't have asked for anything more.
Love the doctor. Don't like the administrative staff. Have an outstanding coding/billing issue from a YEAR ago that they still have not resolved. I find this to be unacceptable. But I absolutely Love Dr. Hudson.
Dr. Hudson could use some work on her bedside manner. She was extremely condescending and not very helpful. As for the office, they are completely unresponsive. You can't get anyone to answer the phone or respond to messages left. They gave me a prescription and when I asked for a re-fill they said they needed the pharmacy and the prescription information. I don't know how you lose that kind of information, but they managed to do so.
She made me feel ver comfortable and was attentive and professional.
She was knowledgeable but could be a bit more friendly / warm
She is very nice and makes you feel as comfortable as you can Jessica is very nice as well and helpful.
Knowledge doctor who was open to discussing options for treatment.
Excellent. I wish for a more flexible schedule. I either have to take off from work or schedule far way in advance in which case I just have to see a Dr. near at Medic First places.
Dr Hudson is the best gynecologist!
She the best OB-GYN i have been ever.
An overall good experience...The office setting is nice, clean, and organized. I did not have to wait very long for my appointment. Dr. Hudson was pleasant, did not rush my appointment, and answered all my questions and concerns.
Was seen right away but then waited in exam room for 25 minutes... in the freezing cold with just the paper thin robe on! Exam was super short - so much so, I wasn't sure whether it was over or not. Not a bad thing - as long as she was thorough. She is extremely warm, and provided me some recommendations which were very helpful. Will see her again in a year, if not before!
I have been going to Dr Hudson for 10 years now. She gets right to the point and makes the appointments a breeze. She also performed a colposcopy and LEEP procedures on me and I was very confident that I was in good hands. She is very quick and does not waste your time. I would not recommend her to someone that needs extra hand holding or emotional support from their doctor.
My visit with Dr. Hudson was good. I like the way how she performs the examination quickly with minimal pain. She gave good advice on other health issues affecting me. So glad she was recommended as my gynecologist.
great professional bedside manner,experience and knowledge shows. Great doctor!
She's great as always!
DO NOT go to the NY Comprehensive Gynecology for a Pap Smear. The appointment was fine. Dr Hudson was fine during the appointment. The nightmare starts when I try to obtain the lab result. They have a patient portal which you could obtain this. It sounds great and efficient but the problem is the result said the collection date is in 1900! I tried calling the office to get this correct. They told me that I have to contact Dr Hudson via the portal. I emailed her via the portal on 2/18. It has been a month and I haven't received a response. I called the office 5 times in the last month trying to get the lab collection date collected. I could not reach anyone but the appointment desk. Each time a very courteous representative said they would pass on the message to the office. I'm determined to call every day from now on. DO NOT USE THIS OFFICE OR THIS DOCTOR FOR A PAP SMEAR IF YOU WANT A LAB RESULT PROMPTLY WITH CORRECT INFORMATION.
I have been going to Dr. Hudson for a couple of years now. I think all the services are great. Bedside manner, treatment, advice and appointment times.
From the moment i walked up to the secretary (super sweet, btw) to leaving the office was 25 minutes. PERFECT! I did not feel rushed, i was asked if i had questions or concerns, everything was effortless. I really like Dr. Hudson, I plan to stick with her for a while!
Always professional and good at explaining
Dr. Hudson was very excellent during my examination. She took her time to explain to me. I would recommend Dr. Hudson to my friends.
She's fine, her staff is a NIGHTMARE. You cannot reach them on the phone. They do not return voicemails. They gave me the wrong information about what insurance to use, and have since sent me multiple incorrect bills--all while I have tried in vain to get them on the phone to correct the issue. Truly incompetent, DO NOT VISIT.
Dr. Hudson knows what she is talking about and is always wiling to explain the science behind any issue you're having. She is fast when she should be and thorough when she should be, and extremely nice, the perfect combination honestly.
I went to Dr. Hudson for annual check up and I am very happy with her. She speaks very fast but explained all my questions. I walked out of the office without worries. Also, all staff are very friendly. Specially a person who takes care insurance is extremely helpful on the phone and receptionist is lovely. This is my second OBGYN doctor from zocdoc. I am definitely going back to DR. Hudson.
Dr. Hudson did my annual exam very quickly (10 mins max) but was thorough, knowledgeable, and kind. She talked very fast and seemed rushed, but she made sure to answer all my questions and make me feel comfortable. And I barely felt a thing!
She was very nice and informative. I was feeling a bit nervous because I did not feel well and her open, easy-going manner helped put me at ease. I definitely will go back to her for general women's care.
She's great! I am so glad my co-worker recommended her to me! Clean office, helpful and intelligent staff. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Hudson.
I was very unhappy with my appointment. I waited for about 40 minutes after my scheduled appointment time (despite arriving 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork) before seeing the doctor. When she arrived she was brusque and quite insensitive, listing several things that might be "worst case" diagnoses before even performing the exam. Though she explained things, she was highly technical and factual and offered very little reassurance until I actually asked "is this something I need to worry about?" (to which she responded "no, probably not" despite having made me very alarmed earlier). Particularly in OB-GYN, a sensitive bedside manner is absolutely imperative, and I found this experience very unsettling and upsetting.
She was awesome and bubbly
She seemed nice and made me feel very comfortable throughout the exam.
She's always very businesslike and no-nonsense so if you want a touchy-feely doctor, she's not for you. Personally, I don't want that kind of doctor as a gynecologist. She's like a tough mom. Pretty perfect if you ask me.
The appointment was smooth. I filled out some paperwork in advance online, which allowed me to speed through waiting and get to see Dr. Hudson asap. I was in and out of the building in 20 minutes. The time efficiency is much appreciated!
She is an easy-going, insightful and intelligent Doctor. I highly recommend her.
I found Dr. Hudson on ZocDoc and she's been my normal gyno for several years. She is thorough in her explanations and always takes time to draw a diagram or write notes to help explain to the patient. She is no nonsense, takes away all awkwardness, and feels like someone you can be open and honest with about how you're feeling. She definitely knows her stuff. But it is a busy office and I do often feel rushed out without asking all of my questions. And I have to repeat my history at the beginning of each appointment - as though notes from my last visit have not been reviewed before seeing me again.
Super speedy - did not want to chat. Perfect for the type of appointment that I needed. No wait time!
Dr. Hudson was very straight to the point but made me feel welcome. She was quick and efficient. The office was clean and everyone was friendly. In and out in half an hour tops.
This was my second visit to Shannon Hudson's office. On my first visit I saw Jessica Azad and I really liked her a lot so I requested her for my second visit and saw her again. She is very smart and answers any questions thoughtfully. She is very efficient as well. I am amazed at how quickly I was in and out of the office for my annual exam. I arrived at 3:15 for a 3:30PM appointment and I left the office before 4PM! I was scene right away and I greatly value that. The office is very nice and I enjoy the front desk and all of the staff. Highly recommend!
The wait is never to bad. Everyone that works there makes you feel comfortable even though it can be nerve wracking. I enjoy this place it's where I've gone since I moved to New York and I plan to stay here! Thanks.
Dr. Hudson is great! She listened attentively, addressed all my concerns and was very informative. I highly recommend her and wish I had found her years ago.
She's very efficient, and answered all of my questions. She could seem short and rushed to those who want a more personal touch.
Dr. Hudson is great, I've been going to her for 5-years and have always had top notch service.
Dr Hudson is fantastic. I found her on here 2 years ago and she has become my regular OB/GYN. She's on top of my health and always takes time to answer questions without making me feel dumb.
I've been going to Dr. Hudson for a few years now. I love her! She's friendly, gentle, and always takes the time to answer all of my questions. She also explains everything in detail.
Fastest exam ever, I would estimate less than 5 minutes with the doctor, total. She left the room and I actually sat there for a second wondering if I was done and allowed to get dressed. I don't think that's a bad thing, but it was definitely a bit surprising.
Always very professionaly Staff very helpful
Very rushed, felt like couldn't be bothered even though no one in waiting room.
Dr. Hudson is a cool chick. She's efficient, approachable, and tells it like it is. She was recommended to me by my PCP (who operates much like Dr. H) and I couldn't be happier. I just hope the Affordable Care Act stays out of our relationship :)
I scheduled an appointment with Dr Hudson due to increasing concerns that required her expertise. If you don't have time to completely read this review, just note that her biggest and most significant disservice is that she is inpatient and rushes through appointments, which is extremely unpleasant for a concerned patient. Not to mention their billing department is not very attentive when it comes to a patient's insurance (it really doesn't take that long to confirm copays). I usually see Jessica Azad, who is great, patient, and a wonderfully attentive listener. On the contrary, with Dr Hudson I felt extremely rushed to the point where she interrupted me before I could rattle off all my symptoms and concerns. Therefore, I didn't have time to fully disclose my medical history during the time I had with her, but I assumed she read my chart, which she carried in her hands; but I realized later she did not, which is disappointing. I understand doctors are busy and want to try to cram in as many appointments in one day, but they are obligated to listen to all of a patient's concerns and questions, and at least try to be patient; it's the right thing to do. As if that wasn't stressful enough, at the end of the appointment, she explained the prescription, but explained that the prescription will be providing more doses than was necessary for me to take. When I tried to ask her to provide more details, she waved me off, telling me the prescription would have all the information (it didn't have her specific instructions - what a surprise!). Barely before she spoke her last words, she was walking out the door, leaving me with no instruction to get dressed or hand me a wipe, which is a typical and simple etiquette measure at a gynecologist office. I was shocked, wasn't sure if she was done with me or not. One more thing that you should note about this office: it's impossible to get someone to pick up the phone to get an appointment.
Nobody likes going to the gyno but Dr. Jessica is so nice and extremely professional and really puts you at ease. So thankful to have found an OBGYN I want to stay with!
Lovely lady very informative and pleasant
She kept it light, explained what would happen, what her observations were, and was very quick about it. She also kept things light and it was a nice experience.
I never have to wait when I come to this office and everyone is such a pleasure to be around. I highly recommend it!
Wow, I'm glad I saw this Doctor. She explained everything. I had about five questions about different issues and she took her time with each one. I felt very at ease in her care.
Dr. Hudson is a very GOOD DOC. She is knowledgeable and cares for her patients .You must feel comfortable when you visit your GYN..I will follow her wherever she moves. She is detailed oriented and explains in "lay terms "so you can understand.her beside manners are impeccable.I was operated by her 11 yrs ago.Please never change!!! No complaints,
She is fantastic, very personable and a smart woman!
Very knowledgeable and actually explains things instead of assuming the patient doesn't want to understand how things work in the body, as has been my experience with other doctors.
Dr. Hudson was great. She was professional, friendly, and answered all the questions I had in a very clear way. She seemed a little rushed, but I've found that happens a lot with doctors, particularly OBGYNs (maybe they're just trying to get it over with before you have a chance to feel awkward).
Dr. Hudson is exceptionally accomplished and bright. And equally important, welcoming and personable.
The front desk was great the wait was less than 5 mins, but Dr. Hudson herself seemed like she didn't want to spent even an extra minute on me. She really was in the room with me for about 5 mins. Asked very little question and i don't even think she had the time to read my medical info. I would think for someone being a new patient you would at least try to get to know my history more than just 5 mins? Would not recommend anyone to go unless you love doc that are fast and give you little time with them..
Dr. Hudson is professional and efficient, yet she will listen and answer any questions. For a regular exam, it all happens quickly! For more serious issues, I felt that she was caring and available. The office is usually busy and there can be a small wait.
She was in a hurry and appeared like she did not have time to answer my questions.
I usually dread going to the gynecologist but with Dr. S. Hudson I do not have this feeling. I feel at ease. She answers all my questions with care.
Extremely curt, no explanation of procedures, was not gentle at all. Didn't feel any empathy or warmness. As a new patient, spent 5 minutes max with her, no introductions, smiles, anything. I've never left a review for anything in my life but feel compelled to here - I would not recommend her to friends/family and there are spades of other competent, warmer OB/GYNs in the city that I would prefer to receive care from.
Very thorough with my symptoms. Highly recommend
very rushy. don't explain. not gentle. doesn't seem to care.
If you are looking for a 'great doctor' with good bed side manners, and more importantly, skill! this is the Dr. for you.
Dr. Hudson has been taking great care of me for over 15 years.
She was professional and fast...win win! (Especially when having to be in such a compromising position, if you get my drift!) The ladies at the front desk were fabulous, friendly, and smart.
So professional, personal and understanding.
When she is fully booked, her asst Jessica Azad takes iver and is perfectly capable and wonderful. They have similar bedside manners, they welcome questions, and nothing feels rushed or forced. They are great at making people feel at ease.
Nothing but praise. It's not just "bedside manner", but actually wanting you to understand what and why she diagnoses or prescribes. I just saw her and she was able to explain my condition (PCOS) as literally a slate of doctors over the past 10 years could not. She didn't have some magic cure, but she explained why they recommended what they did and why she recommended what she does in a way that finally, finally makes it make sense. If you have PCOS and have been befuddled by the condition, I do encourage you to see her-- knowledge is power, and she really wants you to understand. She spoke fast and she wanted me to listen, but she let me ask the questions I needed, and her point was for me to make an informed decision. I cannot say how grateful I am that my insurance and my location led me to her.
Dr. Shannon Hudson is very professional and caring!
Dr. Hudson was very quick and efficient but also warm and friendly! Very nice staff, clean office, not too long of a wait time. Didn't address my paperwork with past health history but other than that, great!
Brisk and quick -- not the Doctor for a sensitive or nervous patient. Have your questions ready and ask at will because she will not prompt you. Also be succinct and specific. I don't think she has time for conversation. With nearly 20 years of experience, I trust she knows what she is looking for, but I don't think she was very thorough. My exam was over in less than 5 minutes. Be advised: the patient rooms are not soundproof!! You can hear everything in the hallway and in the next room!
This medical group is terrible. I went to Dr. Hudson for a new patient visit, and she spent less than 5 minutes with me! She didn't even take my height/ weight or blood pressure, which is extremely dangerous since I am on various medications. To top it all off, they billed my account for an annual visit (which is covered by my insurance), and it has taken over 3 months to resolve. I had the insurance sort it out the next week, but the billing department was so incompetent that they could not remember talking to the insurance company or receiving any updated payment information. I am so frustrated with this group and would never go back!
Dr. Hudson has not change her warm hearted manner and her professional interest in what you ask. I will always follow her as long as I live in New York. Four years ago she saved my life when I refused to see a surgeon for a second opinion which after surgery turned out to be ovarian cancer.She actually made the appointment with the surgeon. Thank You Dr.Hudson
Dr. Hudson and staff were great. They just moved into a new office so the location of my appointment was mixed up and I ended up missing my actual appointment but they were able to accommodate me at the new location the same day which I was happy about. Dr. Hudson was great and walked me through the procedure which was great. I would highly recommend.
Dr. Hudson is wonderful.The visit itself was a disaster, primarily due to the fact that I was there on the first day that the new office opened. There was much confusion, which led to a much longer portion of my day devoted to this appointment than I had anticipated. However, Dr. Hudson and her office manager made it right to the extent that they could. On that basis, as well as Dr. Hudson's overall demeanor and the way that I was treated, I would highly recommend this physician. I am pretty sure that the next visit will not be the debacle that this one was.
She's so thorough and always helps to examine the issues from multiple perspectives. She really cares about people and what she does which helps to make such intimate matters much easier and more comforable.
Dr. Hudson is great and I would recommend her however I just waited two and a half hours in the waiting room. This is the first time I have had t
Dr. Hudson was very matter of fact and performed the fastest pelvic exam I've ever had. No lingering around and causing undue discomfort. She also finally gave me the answers I've been looking for to address some concerns I've had but no other doctor has addressed. For instance, for years I've been told by other "professionals" that heavy painful periods indicated smooth childbirth. I was given 600mg of Ibuprofen and essentially told to suck it up. Dr. Hudson was shocked! We immediately came up with a treatment plan based upon my preferences. She was very, very helpful.
I was so disappointed with her staff and her clinic. I had someone call me with test results and leave a message saying I should schedule a procedure. I called and left 2 messages and emailed to schedule and finally when they put me on their schedule they cancelled it a day before because the doctor had to be in surgery that day. This happened 3 additional times where my procedure was scheduled and then I was called only days before saying they had to cancel. The reason were: You should not have been scheduled on this day in the first place because it is the doctors surgery day, you should not have been scheduled here in the first place because we are moving clinics, and we should not have scheduled you because our new clinic is not ready yet. When I heard from this clinic that I need a procedure and should not wait to get it and then was canceled on 3 times, it scared me. I have moved my health somewhere else and it has been impossible for me to get my records moved because the staff will not answer my request.
Dr. Hudson was thorough, straight-forward - and willing to answer questions. Her explanation of what we discussed was clear.
Dr. Hudson was A-MAZING. Although I do believe an 1:15min wait is too much. Whoever is scheduling her appointments needs to re-evaluate. She did take quite a bit of time learning my history and speaking with me so if that is any indication as to how much time she spends with all patients, the staff up front needs to be aware of that when scheduling--especially new patients. BUT, Dr. Hudson herself was fantastic. I was so pleased.
Dr. Hudson was wonderful and kind and the entire experience did not take long.
I really like Dr. Hudson otherwise I would have just left. I had to wait over an hour to be seen and no one let me know what was going on. It's highly frustrating. The front desk staff and her nurses were absolutely delightful which is a nice change from other offices. Dr Hudson is wonderfully knowledgeable and compassionate. It's just the wait was a nightmare. 30 minutes sure, but over an hour with no notification? Otherwise the visit was great.
Only Dr that spent quality time with me. No wonder it was such a long wait. Ultimately worth it for knowledge.
