Dr. Shirin Peters, MD

Internist, Primary Care Doctor

Professional statement

INTERNAL MEDICINE/PRIMARY CARE & TRAVEL MEDICINE MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS & MEDICAL SKIN CARE ALLERGY TESTING(Food&Environmental) Dr. Shirin Peters earned her M.D. at New York Medical College and is board-certified in General Internal Medicine. She completed residency training at the Former St. Vincent’s Hospital in Manhattan, with a short stint at Wyckoff Heights Medical Center in Brooklyn. Dr. Peters spent the year after completion of her residency training at a private practice in North Carolina. She simultaneously worked at a clinical research company where she acted as Principal Investigator on several large clinical trials. Here she learned about many emerging medical therapies for common chronic diseases, in their final stages of testing before FDA approval. Dr. Peters developed an interest in treatments for obesity through her work experiences so far, both in New York and North Carolina, as well as experiences with the disease entity and its complications in her personal life. She noticed that obesity was either the root cause or an exacerbating factor for many chronic medical problems in her patients. She began to feel that finding an effective way to treat obesity in a person would be the ultimate preventative medicine and would lead to significant improvements in many of their other medical problems. After studying materials from the American Society of Bariatric Physicians and the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine, Dr. Peters observed a weight loss program already established at the practice where she worked. She attended courses on medical weight loss strategies, developed an arsenal of proven approaches to weight loss, and Urban Orchid Medical was born.

The doctor was nice, I was hoping to be seen by a female doctor, as I had some female-specific questions I had wanted to talk about, and I filtered my preference for a female doctor on the app...

UWS location; I sat waiting to be seen for an hour before someone took basic blood pressure and such. Was then told to wait for another 20 minutes. When I finally saw the doctor, she took my own diagnosis without eventaking a look at me. She then referred me to a specialist and sent me on my way. Waste of money and time.

The doctor I saw was nice and did a quick physical which I appreciated. My only complaint is the waitstaff wasn’t the friendliest and the first nurse I saw wasn’t very knowledgeable. Other than that, it’s a great location on abeautiful street. Doesn’t seem like you’re going to the doctor at all.

Staff who schedules always rebooks me from the time I’ve confirmed in Zocdoc because they’ve double booked. This is not the first time this has happened, so I find using Zocdoc to be an inefficient tool to use for booking. This office is very disorganized - quite frustrating!

Waited almost a half an hour for the office to open (it was the day after memorial day) but once they did they were prompt and professional. Everything went smoothly and blood work was back within a week. I've been backsince and there was virtually no wait time. Definitely a great office with adequate staff and in house lab.
