I LOVE Dr Vaidya and her staff. She is beyond a caring doctor that listens and cares. Over years over medial issues I have been to so many doctors offices and Drs and nobody comes close to this Dr and staff. Dr Vaidya overs each detail and really looks at each issue going on with my heath. Will suggest things that shows she cares from her heart with a warm smile. I'm not a number yet a member of their famiky more than a patient. The professional care to kindness is beyond words to express.

She has been our family doctor for many years. We started seeing her after she took over for our prior doctor who got sick She is compassionate and passionate about her patients. She helped me get my diabetes controlled and my diagnosed an early cancer in my husband with her thorough exam

My experience with Vaidya was not positive at all, she was running two hours behind, the nurses were pleasant but i could hear her interactions through the door and she was quite rude, she rushed through my visit and that was after i waited an additional 45 minutes in the room, I feel like she just wants the copay and doesn't care about her patients. I will not be visiting her again.

I will never come see this doctor again, I shouldn't have to come in at 11 am be pulled back on time and then be seen 45 minutes to a hour later by the doctor and then for my visit to take 10 minutes!!!! I switched from my previous doctor to her because I heard that she was the most efficient doctor. Apparently this information was wrong. I will never visit her ever again.

If i could give zero stars I would, there are excessively long wait times to see Dr.Shilpa Vaidya, I've witnessed her being rude to her staff and if a doctor is rude to their staff, what does that say about patient care?If I make a appointment at 7:15 then I shouldn't have to wait in the exam room until 8 to be seen.I've made several 7:15 appointment and everytime she always comes in late to see me. so what is the point of offering that appointment time if she's going to come in at 8 am

My experience with Dr. Vaidya was excellent. She spent an appropriate amount of time going over my lab test and explained in laymens terms what each one meant and how I could improve on ones that needed attention. Very impressed with this Docter and would highly recommend her to family and friends.
