I am 71 and never had better medical treatment than what I received from Dr Shaw. He is a caring man and a true asset to the Southern Maryland community

Review for Dr. Shah

Dr. Das acted like i was wasting her time when she asked me why I was there. She didn't listen or try to help me and when I got upset she told me I could leave. Worst doctors appointment I have ever had!
