Ratings for Dr. Shefali N. Patel-Shusterman
Dr Patel is the BEST!! She spends so much time with me explaining things so I understand. She is caring and compassionate. I always feel so confident with her knowledge and assessments. Her staff is very friendly and accomodating. They make me feel welcome. They appreciate my time restraints and try to schedule appointments minimizing wait times. The office is very clean and organized. I highly recommend Dr Patel if you want a Dr with expertise and knowledge as well as a fantastic bedside manner. I'm so glad I found her.!!
I do not recommend this doctor. Although she is knowledgable in her practice, she seems to lack compassion and is always in a rush to get you out of the office.
I thought Dr. Shusterman was ok. She took time with me and answered my questions. I liked the way I could book an appointment, same day even. What i didnt like, is the way the office 'strong armed" me to leave my credit card info. They dont like to send out bills any longer, what??? Also I contacted them via vm and email, even fax, attempting to get a script for a mamogram, No response, dont know if this was the office staff's fault, or MD didnt want to bother without a scheduled appt and $50 copay. The fact that she doesnt do procedures locally, that is a downside. She doesnt do procedures at local surgicenters.
Dr Patel is truly an amazing physician. She takes her time and gets a thorough history, not only as it relates to ob/gyn, but everything. She makes sure you have had a mammogram, colonoscopy, bone density. She is very thorough, patient, calls with results even if everything is normal!! Her office staff is very accommodating. In today's medical atmosphere - very refreshing to find a physician and office that is n to run as a mill. Love,love, love her!!
This doctor's bedside manner is awful. Would never recommend her services to anyone because of her lack of compassion and kindness. Can honestly say this was my worst experience with a physician.
I was searching for a new OB/GYN, my previous one retired. I came across Dr. Patel's name at RateMDS.com. I was very pleased with the office visit, she explained everything in detail and she is very thorough. In the process of testing, and she leaves no stone unturned...
Dr. Patel is the most caring and knowledgeable GYN doctor I ever had. I started seeing her about three years ago. I was experiencing heavy bleeding that was affecting my personal,work and social life. I also had chronic anemia due to the heavy bleeding. She provided me with informed options after running a series of tests to evaluate my condition. I opted for the endometrial ablation. It required same day surgery and anesthesia, but it was all worth it! I had the surgery in 2012 and it has been life saving. The heavy bleeding stopped and I'm no longer anemic. I'm able to go about my everyday tasks without feeling sick or concerned. I will always be grateful to Dr.Patel for her medical advice and great care!
