Stay away from the dr and Daniella, office staff. No communication. Dr is not in network. Billing is 6+ months behind. Invoice inaccurately shows visit with the dr but only saw his assistant, not him. My appt was with the dr but he sent his assistant instead. Total scam.

Dr. Shah is a horrible doctor, I filed a complaint with the Medical Board. He is in business to make money only.

On the day of my surgery, Dr. Shah was late and the nurses were begging him to hurry up, even after he was in the room the nurses were telling him to quit talking and start the procedure. Very unprofessional, he is in business for the money.

Over crowded waiting room with utterly uncomfortable chairs. Waited for nearly 2 hours for a first time patient appointment. Definitely would NOT recommend this physician solely on the lack of respect for patient time and value.

My husband visited Dr. Shah on 3/25/15. He said the doctor was fine - no complaints about the service. However, we are giving 1 star because his back office only recently sent a bill for the service. It's been over 2yrs! The phone number on the bill to call for questions is disconnected. I called the Dr.'s office who gave me the correct number. I left a message and it was not returned. I then left a message with Daniella the office manager and after a week still have not received a call.

I would give zero stars if I could. They continue to bill me incorrectly, but only after 3 years! The billing company won’t help me and neither will the dr. office. The office says the dr. was out of network and that I’m not HMO, despite a referral from my insurance company that states otherwise. I have mailed them my EOBs showing what they can charge me, yet they ignore it and keep billing me. These people are crooks. STAY AWAY!

The waiting room is filled with people spending most their afternoon reading magazines before ever getting called in to see the doctor. I've received the same bill in error twice now. I continue to explain over the phone and in email that this bill is incorrect, but no progress has been made. DO NOT GO TO DR. ANOOP SHAH, MD

I would never recommend Dr. Shah. He misdiagnosed my granddaughter, resulting in 5 months of pain, and medicine she did not need. After a week under his care, he advised me because the meds he prescribed were not working, to find another doctor. Dr Shah had no interest in her symptons, therefore leading me to seek other professional help.

My first visit with Dr. Shah will 12/2008. Considering the type of medical visit, and his youth, Dr. Shah was very kind and pleasant. I saw hia again midway (2011/12) and he was still very kind and a bit more funny. Eight years later, the experience was still safe, and sound. I was glad to see some of the old staff... which say a lot about their boss.
