    I went to see Dr. Shah because I had an itching sensation in both of my ears. He pulled a piece of wax out of one ear and wrote me 2 prescriptions to apply to my ears over a 3 week period. Neither prescription helped. Now I receive a bill of $275 for the 15 minute consult and an additional charge of $240 for pulling out a small piece of wax in a matter of seconds. This is highway robbery and I would not recommend going here. I was not impressed even before I got the bill.

    I have been seeing Dr Shah for over a year for different issues and he is one of the best doctors I have ever seen! He performed my right lobe thyroid removal surgery and he was informative and also has an amazing bedside manner. I recommend Dr Shah to anyone that is in search for a local ENT doctor!
