"Family affair "

3 members of my family including myself attend Dr Shani , I highly recomend her , she is one of the very few doctors I know in New York city that will take her time with you. And answer all your concerns and questions , she is very knowledgeable and I have called to speak to her on a couple of ocassions and she was very prompt to return the call , I feel very blessed and thankful that she is taking care of my family and me , I have only good things to say about her staff again always professional and efficient from the front desk and rest of staff ,

Appt. staff is terrible

Dana is a good Doctor. Her staff, on the other hand, are so unkind, unprofessional and lacking common courtesy I have chosen another hematologist.

really nice

Sonya is really nice --and she is the only one that gets things done in there when you ask her.I have been going there for 9 years only because of Sonya because she gets me in when I need to see Dr. Shani. She is not a beggar she has always been there for me like a friend and not as a patient. The person that wrote about Sonya has personal issues.

We didn't see eye to eye, she's too old school

She has an abrupt way about her, her bedside manner is not the greatest. I felt that we did get along on some level due to our cultural similarities. Her office staff were polite and professional.She is definitely old school She just wants me to take the drugs. I told her that I want to avoid drugs and continue with close monitoring and taking vitamins and antioxidants combined with good nutrition recommended by my integrative medicine doctor. She said she doesnt believe in vitamins, couldnt give an opinion about vitamin D3 and doesnt believe that avoiding alcohol is necessary. I told her about my concerns regarding taking drugs but she wasn't that helpful. I dont trust her opinion; I will go see another doctor.
