A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Pradip A Shah - Posted on November 8th, 2017
If I could would give negative stars and I come from a family of doctors. In Jan 2016 my aunt died unexpectedly due to his gross negligence in releasing her when she had sepsis. None of the doctors in the hospital could understand it...sure enough the VERY NEXT MORNING we had to take her to a different hospital and she passed. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE be aware. Again we did not sue because we know our aunt would not have wanted to but this man is dangerous.

terrible clinic and terrible doctor. he just doesn't care patients...he hurries up and don't even listen to your problem fully...I went to a general doc for the same issue and she was able to identify the issue correctly...all she had to was to listen to my problem correctly.
Never compassionate. Never smiled. Not responsible. Beware.

My family member died in the hospital under Dr. Shah's care. The member had a severe kidney illness and an aggressive blood infection, which Dr. Shah treated. Dr. Shah was never helpful or friendly. Once he entered the hospital room, he wanted to leave it immediately. He spent more time putting on his gown and gloves than talking with me. After he checked my loved oneâs breathing, he began removing his gown and gloves and proceeded to the nursesâ station to write his notes. What did he even do? I wanted to ask him questions but always felt rushed. I wound up asking most of them while he was in the hallway, exiting the hospital room. This happened every day. Dr. Shah rarely reviewed the labs or chart before coming into the hospital room. I once asked him about a rash on my loved one's chest. He said that it was due to low platelets. I said that the platelets were above 200 (considered normal) for the whole week. Dr. Shah's response: "Oh." And, then he left the room. Another awful occurrence: every time Dr. Shah visited my loved one in the hospital room, he asked if that person had eaten. Are you serious? This person had a NG tube and was not fully alert. When I reminded him that my family member couldn't eat or drink, his response was "Oh yeah." My loved one died with an extremely high WBC. It had been spiking several days before. I asked Dr. Shah if it could be an infection. He said that a medication caused the high number. Once I indicated that my family member had already stopped that drug, he said, "[Family member's name] is at a high risk for infection." And, then he left the room. How was that even helpful? I knew that she was prone to infections. Wouldn't it have been wise to check for an infection (i.e. blood culture) much sooner than towards the end of the week (2 days before my loved one passed away)? My family member had fought off a severe infection 2 weeks earlier, so when the WBC began to elevate, Dr. Shah should have been proactive by ordering tests to figure out what was going on. I regret not asking my PCP to replace Dr. Shah with another ID doctor. Dr. Shah treated my family member for months in the hospital, yet he never even had the decency to offer his condolences after the person passed away. Most importantly, I would never trust Dr. Shah for treatment of an infection. It's literally a life and death choice, so I'd strongly recommend finding another doctor.
