Review of Dr. Shah


My husband went to Dr Shah and his initial visit Dr Shah told him "just because I can't feel my brain doesn't mean I don't have one". My husband said he was extremely rude, arrogant and was unwilling to listen to his concerns. My husband was in intense pain and he told my husband he would recommend him to a doctor that went to Harvard. My husband told him if he wasn't going to do anything for him then he wanted his money back. My husband was reimburse for the appointment.

Review of Dr. Shah

-Collinsville, IL |

My initial appointment was rushed. Dr. Shah kept telling me how behind he was, even though I was one of the first appointments of the day. I felt I was not taken seriously and dismissed as my "level" of weight management may not have been as bad as others. He prescribed me narcotic medication, before ever even discussing healthy alternatives (portion control, etc) with me. It's very upsetting as I went to him as a last resort looking for guidance.

Review of Dr. Shah


My husbands insurance requires us to use Express Scripts. Express Scripts sent a refill request to Dr Shah in July. I have 6 pills left of a medication which causes very bad side effects if stopped abruptly. I saw Angie Epplin since and she said theyd get prescription faxed. This is the third time this has happened with this medication. Both Dr Shah and Angie Epplin do not follow through, check oatients records or evidently care at all about patients. Time to find a Dr that does their job.

Review of Dr. Shah

-Nashville, IL |

He would not listen to me. I tried to explain what the problem was and when i asked him about a previous successful treatment i had for the problem, he was extremely rude and left the room. I will never go back and see him.
