I liked the doctor herself, however, the technology seemed outdated. Was also seen by an intern before the doctor, who seemedinexperienced. There is not another doctor in the practice to tend to urgent needs when Dr. Shah is out of town (as is my current situation). I was told by the receptionist that I could go to an urgent care or another doctor that would not have access to my medical history. This defeats the purpose of having a PCP in my opinion. Because of the last item described, I will be going elsewhere moving forward.

It was my first time visiting with Dr Shefali Shah, both she and the grad student/nurse were very friendly. I felt that she wanted to understand my condition and not just give me meds and go on to the next patient.I look forward to following up with her for my next appointment when the time comes.

I love Dr. Shefali Shah! She is the sweetest person ever! The only negative thing about my appointment was the wait time in the office. I didn't leave the waiting room until 30 minutes after my scheduled appointment, which I arrived 10 minutes early.

I switched to Dr. Shaw’s office a year ago when i received a new insurance provider and I have been happy with my choice since! She has a very positive energy which is helpful when whatever brings you in may causeyou worry or anxiety. She is very professional and I will continue to see her as my PCP as long as I live nearby.

I've seen Dr. Shah several times. Sometimes, I leave feeling more self-conscious and judged for my conditions. This was one of those times. She has been occasionally insensitive to how I feel about my own conditions and the prescriptions that come along with it. I felt ashamed.

The doctor came in promptly followed by a medical student. I really hoped to like her because it is a real pain to find a good new doctor in the city, but she spoke a mile a minute, looked at my"hives" from fifteen feet away (only up close for a matter of seconds), and sent me off to get tests that I didn't want and knew would be inconclusive but figured it was part of the procedure. I never received a call back or letter with the results, only a very large and unexpected bill for the tests. I wasted further money trying to treat bed bugs with Claritin and Benadryll for two months. Never again.

Dr. Shah was lovely. Very kind and walked me through some concerns I had. Very professional and even talked to me about some good home practices for self exams, which is important for women's health and hard to talk about sometimes!Would highly recommend her to anyone needing a new Gynecologist. Only thing I noticed about the office, however, was that the walls were very thin. I could hear the conversation of the patient one room over, so put in headphones. Overall, 5 star experience.
