Dr. Siddharth H Shah has the following 2 specialties
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.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

I would give Dr. Shah a 5 star because he is great Dr. with a great personality and always greets you with a smile. However due to the staff being so rude it's a wonder he still has a practice. Here are a few examples: Ask for an appointment "you don't need to see the Dr." You need a refill "We got 72 hours." They hardly ever pick up phone and God forbid if you call to check your status " don't call us we'll call you." Don't expect to go in his office and find the staff helpful or friendly because you'll be disappointed. We are the patients and we should not be treated disrespectful by the staff, they need to be helpful, friendly and treat us with respect. I hate to drop my Dr. but walking in seeing this front office lady is torture.
A few years ago i had beginning symptoms of what I felt could be multiple sclerosis. Had seen a few doctors after Dr. Shah regarding this issue as well. One a specialist I waited two years to see. Dr. Shah was correct that the initial blood tests didnt say that MS was ruled out because three years later i had the full blown version with all kinds of crazy things happening i ended up in hospital. Can't help but wonder if i shouldve gone on a pill or something. Dr. Shah knows his stuff. I don't care about his office staff. They are under pressure.
My complaint is with the administrative staff, not the doctor. Dr. Shah ordered an EMG and an MRI. With the results, he wanted me to see a neurosurgeon. The staff recommended a particular doctor, but since I was a Workman Comp case, which they knew, they had to contact the W.C. rep to get an approval. After waiting 4 weeks, I tried calling them to find out what was happening (I had called the W.C. rep myself who stated he still had not heard from Dr. Shah's office). My phone calls were never answered as if they had caller ID and were avoiding me. I finally went to the office in person. The receptionist looked at me and I asked her if she remembered me. She replied, "yes Mr. xxxxx, I am sorry, we dropped the ball." I replied stating it was not doing me any good with that explanation. The receptionist stated they were short staffed but would contact the W.C. rep right away. Two more weeks went by and still no word. I contacted the W.C. rep who than, knowing my medical condition was serious, gave me the approval to see a neurosurgeon. Thus, I would strongly recommend to anyone to AVOID this situation by not going to this doctor. He seemed nice enough, but if his staff are this inefficient (putting it nicely!), his judgement, at least as a business man, is not good!
