Specialties

Dr. Shahida P Mirza has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

One Star

Dr Mirza is rude and does not take the time to get to the patient. She was dismissive and missed a significant diagnosis bc she acted like she couldn't be bothered to take the time to discuss symptoms during my appointment. I have since switched doctors and am being treated by someone much more competent.

Wonderful Doctor!!!

The Dr herself called w/lab results.... not the nurse or receptionist, so if there were other concerns, they were dealt with during that call

Office Staff

Her new office staff in Niskayuna are very unprofessional, even coming off a little rude. When coming in to let them know I have an appointment, one girl never smiles or acknowledges you. The other tries to act like a Doctor.I really liked her office staff before she moved. The Nurses here are very nice, feel very comfortable with them.

Great Doctor!

I have been with Dr. Mirza for over 10 years and can't say enough good things about her and her staff. When a physician has a staff person that has been with them over 10 years, it says alot about a practice. I have always received excellent care, fast responses to questions and follow up. Dr. Mirza is very responsive when I am waiting for labwork follow up, or I need a prescription refill. She is kind and caring, and so is her staff.
