Staff is Cold and Rude

I think Dr. Shi is great. However, her staff is horrific. I have dealt with Jennifer and another girl. They are rude, not helpful, don't greet patients, they act like they are annoyed by patients, they seem miserable and like they hate their jobs. I have been dealing with her hateful staff for too long. I am finding another Doctor.

One Star

Looks like a good doctor, but reception is extremely rude. They do not allow a patient to leave voice mail. They expect you to just hold for 15 or 20 minutes on the automated answering service without talking to anyone, even at 2pm in the afternoon when their office is supposed to be open and fully staffed.

Excellent Bedside Manner!

I have been a patient of Dr. Shi's for three years now. I love her bedside manner and she is the most caring and personal doctor I have ever had. I would recommend her to anyone who wants the personal touch that is missing in this day and age.
