Seemed rushed to get me out, and didn't feel like she listened to me when I told her my symptoms. Gave me a flu shot, which I had an allergic reaction to- and when I called, receptionist told me this was"impossible". It's not, and it's dangerous of her to say so. Nurse was very nice, and they followed up promptly about my blood work.

It was my first time here. My experience was none less than my greatest doctor visit. The place itself was immaculate. So clean and simple. The receptionist and wait staff were the kindest. They helped me switch my pcp over realquickly too. Then when I was waiting for the doctor. The nurse was so friendly and nice and very thorough. She definitely knew what she was doing. Even when she took blood samples it was quick and painless. The doctor was the same. Dr. Should was kind and gentle. I had a lot of questions but she was so patient and answered each one very carefully. I could tell that she cared. I really enjoyed my visit. Even got my friend to switch to her.

To be fair, Dr. Shi's office is great for annual check up which is what I first went to her for. It was easy and quick. Which is why I made her my primary physician recently and returned for a checkup before my travels. I told her where I'll be visiting and she prescribed me Typhoid, but informed me my insurance wouldn't cover it. Only my insurance does if she had requested a prior authorization (PA) with my insurance when she prescribed me the Typhoid! So I paid out of pocket and had to request the PA from Dr. Shi's office (which they should've done in the first place) and it took them a week to get it done after numerous calls. By the time they got the PA approved by my insurance, the CVS 7 days refund policy expired so I have to call my insurance to send me a reimbursement form. Thanks a lot for wasting my time for not doing the PA properly!

Dr. Shi has a gentle manner, and her assistants are nice. They seem to specialize in Chinese speakers. I think they make Chinese immigrants feel very comfortable culturally. If you are not culturally Chinese, they are a fine, functional doctor'soffice, but they may not be the best fit for you if your ailments are culturally related. For example, my mid-back sometimes hurts because I participate in powerlifting as a sport, but Dr. Shi questioned why I do heavy lifting and seemed to assume it was for work. However, she still listened to me and agreed with my request for a physical therapy referral, so it's fine as long as you take an active approach to discussing possible treatments with her. They charged me for an annual check-up covered by my insurance and said they would return it if my insurance goes through, which is inconvenient, but not a big problem unless you are strapped for cash. They have an online patient portal, which is a convenient way to securely transfer information. The wait time was as bad as other reviews make it seem. I was seen 50-60 minutes after my appointment time, though I arrived 15 minutes early. Bring a book to read.

Doctor Shi was very professional. I mentioned some of my symptoms and immediately she knew what sickness I had. She made some recommendations on how to combat my throat dryness to prevent getting sick easily moving forward. The medicine sheprescribed was on-point - not too much or too strong. She also gave some option medication just in cause my cough escalated. HOW CONSIDERATE!!! In addition I really want to emphasize how much she cares. This was my first visit and she spent 30+ addition minutes completing my annual checkup AND taught me ways to check for early signs of breast cancer. Best clinic experience ever. I will make her my primary doctor no doubt.

Probably one of the worst doctors I have been to (although she is very nice). Went to get some test results done because was not feeling well and she did not even try to figure out potential reasons why I wasnot feeling well. Just took the tests, asked a few questions on family background and left. Nurse calls me up few days later describing my results and she could not answer basic questions that I asked. Asked for the doctor herself to call me and she never did.

I am very pleased with Dr Shi. I had a medical emergency on a 3-day weekend. My primary Dr was closed, but Dr. Shi saw me immediately and sent me to the hospital, where I spent 14 days in ICU. Herfollow up was tremendous while I was in the hospital, and she has an overall warm and caring soft spoken demeanor that put me at ease. I definitely recommend Dr Shi. Office is clean, bright and well located near subways. Staff and receptionists are always friendly and responsive.

It was my first time attending this office. Even though the practice is pretty small Dr.Shi gives you all the attention needed during your appointment. I scheduled for a physical and before I seen the doctor the nurse drew blood outwhich kept me calm because I wasn’t just sitting and waiting. You also get a portal online so you yourself can view your results. I tried to look the results online and that was a mistake Google tends to over exaggerate things haha! Good PCP! will see her again as her appointment availability is one of the best so far! Asap appointments!
