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!

Dr Shih provides excellent care

May 2017
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.

March 2017
Dr. Shih is kind, knowledgeable, and efficient. I trust her completely.

March 2017
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!

March 2017
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.

February 2017
All was good!

February 2017
She was probably the kindest, sweetest dr. I´ve ever been to. Liked her a lot.

December 2016
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.

December 2016

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.

November 2016
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.

November 2016
Love Dr Shih!

October 2016
I love Dr. Shih, she has been wonderful helping me deal with the loss of my mom.

October 2016
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.

October 2016
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.

October 2016
I was impressed with the concern shown and quality of care provided.

September 2016
A very caring empathetic person.

September 2016
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.

September 2016
Knowledgeable, Confident with diagnosis, listened to concerns and questions, explanations clear and precise. Pleasant manner.

August 2016
I´m really happy with Dr. Shih. She is very compassionate and straight forward.

August 2016
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.

August 2016
