I'd been a patient of Dr. Shi for my regular annual appointments for about 3 years & liked her. When I started trying to get pregnant everything changed. In short, she was terrible. Each times I had blood work, I would arrive to the lab and the tests were never ordered. Once I jump through hoops waiting on Dr.'s assistants to give me the paperwork to take back to the lab, the lab told me when my result would be available. No one called me with results ever, this happened at least 6x in my experience. I would continually call the Dr's assistant & be told that the results were in but the Dr. hadn't reviewed them and I would have to wait until she did- this would take days in some cases. Terrible service, especially when it comes to pregnancy. If you plan to use this Dr. expect to be calling the office ALOT, expect to feel like a number, and don't expect to ever hear from the Dr. herself, even when something comes up abnormal. They won't call.
I could not agree more with the comment below. That was exactly my experience with this doctor. I went to see her for a third opinion since I had two different diagnostics. The nurses were rude, the asked for my records before seeing Dr. Shi. She did not let me explain my situation, she refused to treat me and she made me feel horrible to the point that I wanted to cry. Her answer was I cannot treat you, go to see the last doctor, because he is your doctor.
She could be a wonderful doctor, but I never even got to meet her at my appointment. When I told her nurse that I had seen another doctor already, she made me feel horrible, telling me that it was unethical for me to see two doctors at the same time. I apologized, explaining that since this was my first pregnancy, I just wanted to make sure that I was comfortable with my doctor. She offered to answer any questions I had about Dr. Shi, so perhaps I could make a decision based on her answers without actually seeing the doctor. When I asked about Dr. Shi's bedside manner, she told me that I would not be happy with the bedside manner of anyone at the Women's Pavilion, and that I'd be happier if I just stayed with my current doctor. She added that she would never have a baby at the Women's Pavilion even though she could have free medical care there. I don't know if she was instructed to just get rid of me or if she really felt that way; either way, it felt completely inappropriate. She said that I could still go ahead with my visit, but after all of that I decided to just leave. Again, Dr. Shi could be a lovely doctor, but unfortunately my very strange experience with her staff left much to be desired.
