What People Say About Dr. Alpa Shah, MD

I thought I was seeing Dr. Kirin Shah but his wife saw me instead. She carelessly looked at my MRI desk and complained about not knowing how to use her OWN computer screen to look at the mri. Wow. So she told me that she just didn’t know what was actually on my brain and tears began to fill my eye. This was the whole reason why I made the appointment because when I paid for the mri out of pocket ($575) it found something on my brain. I told her that I have been suffering from vertigo like symptoms for the past year and a half. She pretty much told me that I will be dizzy for the rest of my life and I need to avoid any situations and medications that make me dizzy. She called in a medication for me that said that it might help or it might not. And good luck to me. I went to go pick up the medication and right on the bottle it says causes dizziness. What a waste of time and money. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

The visit was more of talk session. I made her aware of the battle of sleep apnea for near 25 years or more, along with over night tests. She made one appointment after the other. As the bill piled up, she demanded me to pay her for sleep study tests all in two or three large payments with prepd card payments. I advised her that I can't afford to pay her that way as a single parent. She then refused to give me the CPAP machine and prescription. Still, today, I don't have CPAP machine.

I have MS and find Dr. Shahs demeaner perfect for me. She is patient and kind. She listens without interruption and strives to find the best course of action of treatment that will best benefit me. She has been an advocate with my less than tolerable insurance company to find the best treatment towards this horrible disease and I appreciate all her efforts! This disease has been scary, but Dr. Shah has helped me get through the hurdles for a more productive life. I'm thankful for her.

Worst experience ever. Do NOT go to this doctor. I'm so appalled at the way she treated my son and daughter-in-law that I'm writing a letter to the medical board.

I saw this Dr today, I do not agree with any of the positive posts. She does not listen to you at all. Only what is convient to her. Her bed side manner is AWEFUL! Only wants to push pills not really find out what is the underlying or cause of your problem. She had the nerve to say its in my head and i have to see a shrink bc she never heard of a medical condition that i am suffering and diagnosed with and treated for more than 20 years. Bc she is a DR. AND KNOW EVERTHING. BEWARE UF YOU SEE THI

I am pleased to leave a positive survey for Dr Alpa Shah. I took my uncle to see her last month as he was having weakness and was recommended by ER doctor to see a neurologist. I made an appointment request on her website and received a call from her staff next day. I was impressed by her bedside manners. My uncle got a scan done next day. The following day we saw Dr Shah and she explained the problem and the treatment in detail. My uncle is getting better now.

Last week my wife and I went to meet Dr Alpa Shah. Her receptionist was kind and helpful. I saw Dr Shah after 5-10 mins of wait. In that time, her assistant took my blood pressure and downloaded my CPAP card which I needed for my work. Dr Shah was caring and knowledgable.

I would really question, the excellent reviews, or comments made on the behalf of Dr. Alpa Shah! My complete visit with her, was a total disgrace, tense, scary, unprofessional, disastrous, reckless, and wasteful visit! She was only interested in the following! Clearing her name, reputation, colleagues, hospital privileges, and Definitely more certainly far more interested in covering her tracks! Mind you viewers my health overall, is in danger, out of control, and hangs in the ballot! WOW!!!!

Dr Alpa Shah is a caring neurologist and so right on her diagnosis. She facilitates the work up quickly. She updates me about test results by phone call on the same day. Her website forms were convenient and saved my time. I am impressed by her knowledge and good personality.
