Approach

Dr. Shirin Peters attended college at the New York Medical College and completed her residency at the Former St. Vincent’s Hospital in Manhattan, NY, NY. Additionally, she spent part of her residency at Wyckoff Heights Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY. The following year, her training took her to a private practice in North Carolina, where she completed her residency. She utilizes her diverse experiences in her practice to this day. She developed a particular interest in weight management in both states and has a strong desire to help those who suffer from obesity and weight-related conditions. She realizes weight issues affect a person — both physically and mentally — which plays a role in a patient’s overall health and well-being. That’s why she’s developed weight loss solutions that are effective, yet reasonable for patients to incorporate into their lives. She doesn’t just focus on weight loss, though. She’s devoted to her patients’ health in all areas and focuses on every aspect of primary care including screening and prevention. She always searches for the latest and most effective treatment solutions.

How was your experience with the doctor?The location I went to shouldn’t be open to take on new patients. They measured me incorrectly, didn’t feel comfortable that my name wasn’t on the lab that I provided. Then most recently called me to tell me they didn’t collect enough blood but did indeed collect 3 tubes full. I will never go back nor recommend.

How was your experience with the doctor?This clinic is just disrespectful for its patient. They keep sending me reminders for the appointment (which I showed on time for) but from they side, they kept me waited for almost for an hour just to let me know that there was a confusion in their scheduling and no one will be able to see for another 20 minutes at least. As they would had charged me if I wouldn't show up, I would expect them to take responsibility when they're not there on time. Not going back there.

How was your experience with the doctor?UWS location; I sat waiting to be seen for an hour before someone took basic blood pressure and such. Was then told to wait for another 20 minutes. When I finally saw the doctor, she took my own diagnosis without even taking a look at me. She then referred me to a specialist and sent me on my way. Waste of money and time.

How was your experience with the doctor?Waited almost a half an hour for the office to open (it was the day after memorial day) but once they did they were prompt and professional. Everything went smoothly and blood work was back within a week. I've been back since and there was virtually no wait time. Definitely a great office with adequate staff and in house lab.

How was your experience with the doctor?Overall disorganized experience and very very slow. I checked in at 8:20 AM and didn’t see a doctor until after 9:15AM. I waited to see the doctor and no one working in the office seemed to be preoccupied with anything. The nurses who saw me before the doctor seemed very inexperienced. The office itself is very old. Everyone was nice but the overall experience was very poorly managed and extremely delayed and slow. I would not recommend this doctors office.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Peters' office is unreliable. They lost my test results, and then said that "we might have not done the right test" for a time-sensitive and potentially life-threatening issue. After they were so unhelpful and unresponsive about this, I ended up having to go to another doctor to be treated, and they were pretty appalled by the incompetency of this practice. I would never recommend Dr. Peters as a primary care provider, because primary care providers are supposed to be your first line of medical support, and she couldn't be further from consistent and supportive.
