- 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.

I don't understand why some of the great doctors in this practice would want to be associated with a doctor like this. I saw him impatient because he was on call for the practice that I use and I hope I never see him again. Spent about 3 min in my room. Didn't introduce himself, and practically had his hand on the doorknob the whole time. Never asked me one question about what landed me on the hospital. Dodged my questions, and undermined the well respected urologist (who had been in my room 2 hours earlier with his opinion of my diagnosis) by dismissing that diagnosis but not giving reason why, his own opinion, or a course of action. In my opinion, he is a malpractice suit waiting to happen.
He is not my primary but he was covering for the practice when I was in the hospital. Every answer to my questions, ehich was relevant to whty i was admitted was, "I don't know, I am not familiar with your medical history" and when I tried to explain, he abruptly stopped me. He is very arrogant and apparently is not interested in knowing the whole picture. In a hurry to get in and get out mentality.
I have seen Dr. Shah several times both inpatient for and outpatient and have noticed that he ignores what the patient says or just doesn't listen to patients and he doesn't even read the patient chart for history or listen to patient history from the patient them self. If you make the wrong diagnosis or don't make a diagnosis then tell the patient that their medically and personal history based suggestion is wrong - in a cocky manner in front of numerous residents point blank - then you should probably have evidence or reason to back up your decision. The same week, a doctor in the same hospital, a specialist, made a diagnosis of what I had suggested to Dr. Shah. He has also told me before that he didn't think I was sick but gave me a Zpack anyway then refused to talk to me on the phone after I completed the z pack and was worse than beforemaking me wait an extended period) and eventually ordering the medication that my chart clearly shows I use with that infection. He is arrogant and ignorant- and sees/hears what he wants and makes decisions based on that. Office staff are great, hospital staff are great, wait time is irrelevant.
