- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

2018 - If you don't follow what Dr. Shah says, or you question her staff pertaining YOUR payments, she becomes extremely defensive and derogatory. She tried to split me and my wife by believing when my wife wanted to end the meeting, because Dr. Shah was so rude. Dr. Shah replied, "Your wife knows what's she's talking about. She understands." That was an absolute distortion of what my wife's reason. Dr. Shah, without provocation, and in the middle of our conversation, rudely ended the meeting and requested I find another "sleep clinic" and that she would "report this to my pcp." Dr. Shah can present as bullish, coarse, and bestial.

the whole office was unprofessional from top to bottom. i visited office on August 2017. At first visit i went to receptionist, first she wanted to collect office fee before she asked my name or greet. i went to room to wait for Dr kiran Shah. a lady showed up with scrub. she introduce herself as Dr Alpa Shah. i never made appointment with her. the second she started speaking i knew i am in wrong place. she started to discuss the financial aspect of treatment without explaining my medical problem. i said to her i am here for sleep problem. then she tried to sell me C pap machine and she did not discuss all my options accurately . In my life time i never have seen such unprofessional doctor office. their behavior were like used car salesman.
