How was your experience with the doctor?She listens to my concerns (I am the type to have some anxiety about things) and gets straight to the point. She is very no nonsense and will tell you what you want to know, which is super super helpful. I needed an IUD and she consulted me for it as well as put it in. It was a very seamless procedure and she was very helpful. A true professional.

How was your experience with the doctor?I have been searching for a long time for a female gyno to talk to me about menopause. I cannot tell you how many docs have been condescending, asked me at age 44 if I wanted to get pregnant (obviously a money maker), treated me like my symptoms were just “grin and bear it” Dr. Hudson makes everything clear and understandable. She treats me with respect. I am so happy I found her.

How was your experience with the doctor?As always, I appreciate Dr. Hudson's no nonsense approach. Some may think her brusque, but when I'm up on that table, I don't want small talk! She is professional, quick, and thorough.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Hudson''s office billed my insurance company thousands in testing through a 3rd party lab called Sunrise Medical Laboratories, for which I did not give any consent to have this testing done. I am now ultimately responsible for nearly half of this, and was never given an explanation or any indication that I would be responsible for anything over my copay. When I emailed to inquire about these outrageous amounts, I received a response from the billing department saying that I "should check with [my] insurance company before [I] use such hyperbole". So really fantastic customer service as well.

How was your experience with the doctor?I didn’t expect for us to be best friends but we barely exchanged pleasantries. I had a basic check up so there was not much to explain as I was healthy. Dr. Shannon was direct & short. Had something been wrong, I doubt she would’ve been enthused to explain. She seemed rushed. I figured she was havin a bad day.

How was your experience with the doctor?I've been seeing Dr. Hudson for over a decade. She's a consummate professional with excellent bedside manner and who always takes her time to address any concerns one may have. I do however, despise the practice she's part of. Not only there are many redundancies with submitting and updating your information (it has to be done twice or more per appointment), they always try to charge me a co-pay for my annual and have threatened to cancel my appointment if I did not comply. I'm the benefits admin for my company so I'm well aware of what's covered. Apparently it's their "office policy" to charge a co-pay. I've also had an appointment canceled after arriving because I was not informed of the pre-requisites of the visit in advance. The staff is a mixed bag of incredibly rude to professional. In short - lover Dr. Hudson, highly dislike Maiden Lane Medical Practice.

How was your experience with the doctor?I like Dr. Hudson, but dealing with the staff at this office is perpetually frustrating. At every visit, they try to charge me a co-pay, even though I don't have one; I have to call my insurance provider on the spot (every time!) and connect them to the office to avoid paying the charge. I've also had problems after every visit with how things going to the laboratory are coded. I'll receive a bill, call my insurance company, and be told that the tests should be covered but the doctor's office coded them incorrectly. It sometimes takes weeks of calling the office before I can get someone who can tell me how to correct this (the procedure seems to change between every visit). I will probably look for a new OB/GYN, because the hassle is just not worth it.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Hudson was on vacation today. I was not informed of that. The staff were rather flippant about it. I was able to see another doctor within a half hour so it worked out okay. Not thrilled, but will still see Dr. Hudson as she is very good.

How was your experience with the doctor?i first scheduled an appointment with dr. hudson and was rescheduled for the following which was already an inconvenience but not a big deal. once i arrived i was told to pay a balance that i was not aware of and caught me by surprise. i was unhappy about it but paid my dues anyways. i waited in the waiting after that for a half hour then was taken to the exam room where i wait an addition 40 minutes. apparently i was forgotten about. the doctor was quick with my appointment and didn’t seem to concerned about my visit. she prescribed me my medicine and i left. i thought i found my go to gyno :( but this was not it.

How was your experience with the doctor?She actually seemed very present the last time I saw her. Usually she's rushing through, barely remembers me (and I've gone quite frequently to see her), and leaves without even saying goodbye or making it clear the appointment is over. She was better this last time. She definitely knows her stuff - she's just doesn't care to create a real connection with her patients. I guess that's just her style.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Hudson is extremely knowledgeable in this field and made me feel like I was in good hands. A good word to describe her is "efficient". Sometimes doctors who are "efficient" lack bedside manner, but I did not find that she was disrespectful or cold with me. Overall, I was very happy about my visit.

How was your experience with the doctor?I was a new patient hoping to switch over to her care. I went to see this doctor because I had a lump in my breast. I was visibly nervous about my issue and also trying a new doctor, as I've had the same doctor for 15 years. Her demeanor was very dry and cold (she didn't even greet me) and was rough during breast exam, which I figured was needed due to my concern. But she was also rough during the pap smear (which I didn't ask for). I walked out in tears... I've never felt so violated. Needless to say, I would never go back or recommend her. Besides the interaction with the rest of the staff, everything about the visit was terrible.

How was your experience with the doctor?I've been in perimenopause since I was 39 y.o. and I swear to G-d I haven't been able to get a gyno to talk to me seriously about it until Dr. Hudson. Everyone else has poo-pooed my symptoms and talked pretty condescendingly to me and it's been so frustrating. I even went to one gyno who asked if, at age 45, I wanted to get pregnant! That must be where she makes the bucks. Dr. Hudson specializes in menopause and that's exactly what I need. She has good bedside manner, takes patients seriously. Does not rush you out the door. I was able to schedule an appointment really quickly. Highly recommend!
