Dr. Shih is a wonderful doctor. She is warm, friendly, kind and sweet. She took her time with me and made me feel like my concern was important.
Dr. Shih did an outstanding job understanding my condition, recommending actions, and answering questions from my wife and myself!
I was very satisfied with this doctor. She was professional and yet very caring. I felt at ease telling her my problem.
if dr. pineda-liu (my pcp) not available would definitely see dr. shih again
Dr Shih provides excellent care
She was thorough, a good listener, and I never felt she was rushed even though she spent more time with me than my appointment normally would have been. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Shih is kind, knowledgeable, and efficient. I trust her completely.
I absolutely LOVE Dr. Helen Shih - her energy level is always high, but in a good way, and she makes sure she reviews my chart ahead of time, so she knows me as if I am the only patient that day. She makes me want to take better care of myself!
I still don´t really understand what would have caused the abdominal pain I experienced. Helen told me not to worry, and I do trust her judgement, but it´s still weird not knowing why something would happen.
All was good!
She was probably the kindest, sweetest dr. I´ve ever been to. Liked her a lot.
dr. Shih is awesome! she didn´t blame me for my deliquency in routine checkups, but she gave me a full work up to get me back on track and then determined next steps to ensure I felt comfortable to get my health on track. I´ve already taken steps towards her suggestions.
very personable yet thorough Ann knowledable. she was great!
Excellent service and friendly. explain fully all options and questions I had
My impression of Dr. Shi is very positive. She is thorough, asking all the questions relevant to the symptoms. She explained the potential sources of the symptoms and the logic of her diagnosis. I am very satisfied with her service.
The Dr was very efficient and seemed knowledgeable but it was difficult to understand everything she said because she spoke so quickly. I felt very rushed, as if I wasn´tresponding quickly enough. The Dr was friendly and personable but seemed to be in a hurry...very efficient service.
Love Dr Shih!
I love Dr. Shih, she has been wonderful helping me deal with the loss of my mom.
Dr. Shih was very well-informed about my dermatological problem, and I was surprised by that. I appreciated that she knew of the latest treatment options for my condition.
After seeing this dr, I am switching primary care dr´s! She spent an amazing amount of time, taking notes and genuinely seemed concerned to get to the bottom of why I was there.
I was impressed with the concern shown and quality of care provided.
A very caring empathetic person.
Both times I have visited, it has been the best care I have ever had. I will be telling everyone that needs a doctor to come here. Incidentally, I did survey creation & analysis for a living, and "How likely would you be to recommend us to someone else" is the single most useful metric - which is why I made a point of spelling it out :) You should heavily weight the answer to that question, if you aren´t already.
Knowledgeable, Confident with diagnosis, listened to concerns and questions, explanations clear and precise. Pleasant manner.
I´m really happy with Dr. Shih. She is very compassionate and straight forward.
The doc was responsive to my questions, helped outline a clear plan for wound care, and reviewed reasons why I may need to followup for further care. They took the time to answer my questions raised during the appointment, and even reversed course and sat back down at the very end of the visit when I had a healthcare question unrelated to my presenting complaint (and helped sort out how best to followup with said question through my primary care doc). I know my being late to my appointment can effect the whole team, so I was very much grateful they were able to still see me and take the time to be thorough. They even made sure the supplies I needed were the ones I had (tegaderm, steristrips) so that we knew our plan in the clinic matched the realities of my kit at home.
I have great confidence in Dr. Shih, and am happy to have her as my regular physician. She is thorough, smart, caring, and an overall outstanding professional on every level.
Dr. Shih was excellent. She listened to my questions and clearly explained a range of solutions to consider.
Great overall experience. I had to get in quick.
Dr Shieh shows exceptional concern and had great follow-up.
I was very impressed with Dr. Shih and am so happy I chose her as my provider.
Very impressed and would gladly see her in the future.
This was the first time seeing Dr. Shih. She did not make me feel like I was wasting her time. I liked her very much.
Never felt rushed and felt she listened .
Dr. Shih is the best doctor I have ever been to and I would highly recommend her to any one.
First visit to Dr. Shih. Went awesome. The visit was excellent and she seems clearly first rate.
Dr. Shih was wonderful. she was on time, listened to me and was very caring. she answered all of my questions and put my mind at ease. I would definitely see Dr Shih again and would recommend her to others.
This provider is very friendly
I always feel included in the decisions w/Dr. Sheh. She seems to have a more holistic approach - I truly appreciate & value her.
Superlative in every way.
