I would not recommend Dr. McDaniels to anyone! She lacks bedside manner, compassion, and kindness. Extremely cold for a doctor, especially a doctor in her field. I had some questions after some imaging results, tried to actually speak to her and was declined as she only communicates to patients through an email portal system. She had a very nasty condescending tone, using capital letters in some parts in the email as if I was annoying her, when I simply have questions pertaining to my health.

This doctor is extremely rude and does not care about her patients or their concerns. The first two times I went to her I received cold treatment from both the receptionists and Ms. McDaniel. I refuse to call her doctor because her behavior is not fitting to describe the way a doctor acts. All in all, she will spend about 5 mins in the room with you and her brain capacity is so small that she can only address ONE issue per visit. Regardless of this, I gave her the benefit of the doubt that maybe

The reviews do not lie. As my grandfather says "when somethings smells, it stinks through and through." This expression is completely appropriate when it comes to Dr. Shabarbara McDaniel. I booked an appointment through ZocDoc which was easy and probably the only reason why she's still in business. Her policy is to have a credit card of yours on file in case your insurance does not meet the deductible. Which I refused to give so they would not let me see the doctor until they could confirm this

My experience with Dr. McDaniel has been terrible. I waited an hour to be seen. I got my blood drawn & they collapsed my vein. I had to get a biopsy for a lump. Her office scheduled the appointment & provided me with the information (in writing, twice). The address they provided was incorrect- she had moved three years ago. I googled the surgeon &found another incorrect address. I finally arrived at the correct location an hour late only to discover they never sent my bloodwork over. Never again

Zero empathy. On Yelp she has a record of patients crying in exam rooms. She corrected me when I told her procedures have been painful, saying "no, that shouldn't hurt". She's often annoyed by questions, & if you interrupt her "script" to ask questions, get ready to be spoken to like a child.

I don't ever give reviews. Seriously. I just wanted to write one because I was/am so appalled by this doctor. Worst Doctor ever. Extremely painful biopsy. Horrible staff. The doctor is beyond rude. They overcharge.You WILL wait 2 hours before seeing her. Got a cervical biopsy. It was so painful and she let me bleed everywhere ( this is not supposed to happen)She scared me into thinking I had cancer when I didn't. JUST STAY AWAY!!!

I'm writing a review because I believe it's generally the best way to search for the right doctors/practices. In this particular practice, I strongly believe the cons profoundly outweighed the pros. The cons: lack of professionalism (i.e. staff), withholding patient's full credit card info, uncleanliness regarding restroom & ob/gyn exam room, and poor experience with uncertified technician- a teen who caused me to have a hematoma during a simple blood draw. Pro: friendly doctor
