Dr. Shah was punctual. He inquired about how I was feeling. He reviewed my vitals. He used his stethoscope to check my upper body. He discussed my lab work and mammogram, and checked medication dates. He complimented me on my health, and noted that my blood pressure was lower than last time. He encouraged me to watch my cholesterol level. He scheduled a return visit for 3 months, unless I had a concern.

October 21, 2019 7:00 PM

My provider gave me needed advice and answered all my questions, and gave me _____ good advice.

October 11, 2019 7:00 PM

i went in because my glucose levels were 425. Dr Shaw asked me why I came into the office because they don't carry any medicine there. I told him I had come in because I wanted to get something to bring it down. he decided to do an iv of insulin, yet he told me they didn't have medicine there. once placed in a treatment room, no one came back for a very long time. I had to leave the room to look for the nurse. I ran into Dr Shah and he said, "No one has set you up yet?" He went to ask the assistant who originally took my vitals what happened. I do not know her response. Dr. Shah then went to find someone to help me. Finally his nurse came in to give me the iv.

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

This visit was good overall. However, I did not receive a referral for a colonoscopy that I requested based on the advice of Dr. X. Also, there was a 1 hour wait time because the computer system was down. Dr. Shah is an excellent doctor and I value his expertise and the quality of care I receive.However, this visit did not completely address all of my concerns .

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM


January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

wait time was long but that was understandable and when I talked to the staff they explained why wait times were long

October 14, 2018 7:00 PM

Always have a great experience, thanks very much.

October 14, 2018 7:00 PM

The Provider appeared to be in a hurry while treating me. The Provider spent most of the time looking at the computer with my record instead of listening to me thoroughly about what my total issues were. The Provider could not locate one of my medical issues on the computer and suggested I get tested to show that I have this illness, but that some of the problems I was there to be seen could be as a result of this illness. The Provider was very confusing.

October 7, 2018 7:00 PM

Doctor helped me maintaining a healthy blood pressure by not just taking my medications, but eating healthy, exercising and getting my rest. His at advice worked. I feel much better than I use too.

September 17, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Shah is very organized and he is familiar with my medical history. I am comfortable discussing my medical concerns with him. Most of the time we agree.

September 16, 2018 7:00 PM

I always feel comfortable and confident that I will get the best care .
