Great Doctor!!

My mother has been going to Dr Shah for 10 yrs now. He literally saved her life by getting her the proper treatment when she had acquired MRSA via a hip replacement. I changed from my doctor to him after I saw the way he handled my mom's situation. He is compassionate and cares about his patients! We LOVE Dr Shah!!!

Dr. Shah is an okay guy but as a physician we just didn't click. Very difficult to get in touch with staff and/or him. Wait in office to see him is too long (once 3 hours, another over 1.5 hours); then, see him for less than 10 minutes. Did not feel like he was paying attention to patient's needs. At times, actually argumentative. Did not order new prescription as he said he would. Very disappointed as patient needs a primary care physician and was hoping he was it; he's not.

Pleasant doctor; unpleasant office

Although I liked Dr. Shaw, you have to endure a lot to actually see him. They consistently over-book; he was at least 45 minutes late for all three of my visits. And since his waiting room is tiny, and crowded with all of the people who he hasn't seen yet, it is often standing room only. His staff does not seem to answer the phone during their normal business hours, and go days without calling you back when you leave a message.

very slow response from staff

The staff has a dont care attitude and will never return your call. Have to call multiple times to get anything done. The doctor is good but dealing with the staff negates the experience.
