Dr. Shah always left me feeling intimidated and unsafe to speak truthfully. I'm a very honest person. His demeanor and limited interest in my situation, and the fact that he stopped taking my insurance caused me to move on. I do need treatment, but I'm one of the good patients, not difficult and very compliant, and I don't behave like I'm in my own personal movie. I've never dropped a doctor before this, there is more, but this suffices.

Horrible !!!! He is in it for the money and nothing else . Stay away if you want to keep your sanity . Find someone who really cares about yours or your child's well being . Patients are cash cows ... he is demeaning and does not want to hear anything you have to say . His way or the highway . The minute he thinks he's not getting paid by your insurance he will tell you he is going to discharge you . Worse worse worse experience . Aren't you supposed to feel better after you see a psychiatrist ? You need a psychiatrist before and after you see him with your child . He is absolutely terrible . I will never recommend and I would not give him any stars . He is the star of greed . The front desk staff have to put up with his nonsense and they are wonderful .
