SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Dr. Shah is a major asset to this location.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

When she first entered the room I was kind of reprimanded that her staff complained to her that I was "Cranky" and asked me to be nicer to them. I tried to explain that from registration to the nurse the 2 personnel seemed to ask me to validate my medical records that seem to violate confidential info exchange in the open registration area and by an assistant when the purpose of the appt seemed lost to them as I am supposed to be in Maintenance Mode according to Stanford Medical policies??!!! Even though The Dr. seemed nice but as a patient I was being "lectured" for being "cranky" to her staff? I was going to give her a Godiva Dark chocolates gift, but instead I gave to her assistant who later returned into the room to give me the flu shot. I apologized to her assistant that "I was cranky to her" & left the room

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Dr. Shah was amazing! She listened to me and didn't discount my worries. It made me feel like my thoughts and voice mattered!

Care provider very thorough in assessing my medical concerns after reviewing my medical records and history.

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

Great Dr. Super informative and proactive

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

Care provider is knowledgable and friendly, but visits are usually rushed. She does not ask as many question/offer as much support as I would find beneficial regarding ongoing my depression, weight, and sleep issues. Care requires more than reading instructions on a follow-up print out.

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

Dr. Shah is very thorough and informative. She's great with me.

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

Dr. Shah is always clear in communicating and I feel like she cares about my health.

Dr. Shah is the best! I would recommend her to anyone

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

I think the doctor was already behind on schedule so I felt like I didn't have enough time to ask all of the questions I would have liked to ask. However, I know that if I insisted she would have listened.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

very good and informative advice

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

Dr. Shah is an excellent care provider. She always treats me with respect and takes the time to hear and ask about any concerns I have. She asks probing questions to get to the root of a problem and make sure she understands fully. Dr. Shah is a huge asset to the Stanford team.
