I am always very happy with me care, whomever I see. My only comment was that I made notes on my file paperwork prior to me visit as requested, those were not reviewed during my visit. i.e. I had a partial hysterectomy not a complete; and with the symptoms I was experiencing I felt that might have been important.

Dr Shih is an outstanding physician. The best I have ever had. Very kind, listens to what I tell her and most of all doesn't just discount what I tell her. I feel she believes what I tell her therefore working toward the goal if getting better instead of feeling ignored like I have been from other doctors (at other clinics). I would highly recommend Dr Shih.

Dr Shih is excellent in evey way in my opinion. I have often recommended Dr Shih to my family members and friends. The ones who chose her have also been very happy with her. She is smart, a great listener, compassionate, and every suggestion and diagnosis she has given me (and my family) has proven to be accurate. I am in my 70's... family I have recommended to her vary in ages... young and middle age. All are reportedly very happy with Dr Shih as I am also.

her email follow up could use a little more detail. for example, one email note "may not need further scanning" but no notes on what to do next to determine whether I need follow up scanning and if not, is this something that needs to be monitored year-to-year.

Dr. Shih is very knowledgeable and easy to understand. I told her that she always makes me feel better!
