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.

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!
