Patient Comments (7)
in Memphis, TN |
Dr. Shala is a great doctor, but getting his office to call refills to your pharmacy in a timely manner needs to be improved.
Memphis, TN |
Dr. Shala spent time with me and listened. He is thorough and has great bedside manners. Staff were very nice. I finally found a Cardiologist I can trust. Busy practice, worth the wait.
Cordova, TN |
Dr Shala is simply the best Cardiologist in town! I was seeing another doctor in one of the big clinics and felt that I was on an assembly line. At Dr Shala's clinic I got personal and great care. Hands down recommended.
in Memphis, TN |
Mary, his Admin Asst., never returns telephone calls and they are very slow in filling out paperwork despite, the fee that you pay. You have to stay on them. Also, Dr. Shala told my husband one thing during a visit and when asked about it one the next visit, he denied that he told him that. As they say, it's all about having a good show!
Certainly apologize for the slow response in paperwork. We looked into this situation and clearly found out that the patient's disability claim as cardiac issue was not legitimate and that response upset the wife tremendously. We have to keep high standards of professional integrity and ethics even if it leads to this type of retaliatory review on Healthgrades.
in Eads, TN |
Very caring MD who listens to your complaints and concerns. Excellent care!
in Cordova, TN |
He is so passionate about his patient. He is also very knowledgeable and will describe all medical issues using diagrams or any other teaching device. He has a great nurse and staff. He is the best and I would highly recommend him.
in Collierville, TN |
Considerate and takes time to talk to you and detail any procedures.
