During the first couple of months of my pregnancy I saw a different dr. And he was awful, rude, and spent no time with me. I decided to switch OBGYNs and was lucky enough to get in with Dr. Shiu. She was personable, caring, and spent the time I needed to feel comfortable and answer all of my questions and concerns. She was extremely vigilant during my labor as well and safely delivered my baby via emergency c-section after some complications like a super hero! Go see her for great care.

Never go to this doctor. She is not informative or helpful at all. When seeing her at the clinic on Q street, she chuckle when you are explaining your issues to her and will rush you out without really explaining things to you. When seeing her at the hospital, she will also keep you waiting and be on break eating when you need papers signed off by her to be checked out and released.

I have never written a review for a doctor before, but my visit with Dr. Shiu yesterday was the most unpleasant doctor's visit I've ever had. I am 12 weeks into a difficult pregnancy; 3 out of my 4 previus pregnancies have ended in miscarriage. When I tried expressing my concerns and anxieties to her, she continuously interrupted me with, "What can I do for you TODAY?" and "I'm aware of your medical history." Throughout the entire visit, she was shockingly rude, abrupt, and unkind. No compassion

I have never written a review for a doctor before, but my appointment with Dr. Shiu was the most upsetting experience I've ever had with a doctor. I am experiencing a difficult pregnancy; three of my previous four pregnancies have resulted in miscarriage. Dr. Shiu was shockingly abrupt, rude, and insensitive. When I tried to explain to her my fears, she would abruptly cut me off with, "What do you need from me right now?" or "I know your medical history." Least compassionate doctor ever.

She is great! Delivered my first daughter and hopefully she will deliver another one in the future. Very personable and thorough, its fun to catch up each time I visit.

She delivered my baby and I could not have asked for a better Doctor. Dr. shui was comforting and informative and she always made sure she had time to answer any and all my questions. She had wonderful bedside manner and alsways had an upbeat attitude :)

My wife and I can only comment on the poor service and scheduling of Dr. Shiu's office. We had an app scheduled Friday May 6th at 8:15am. On the way to the Dr's office at 8:05 am my received a call that Dr. Shiu had to cancel and we would need to reschedule. This was 10 minutes before the appointment as we were on our way. Both my wife and I took off work for this and our entire day was wasted. I would not recommend Dr. Shiu and her office.
