Stow, OH |
He is a horrible doctor who has narrasisic behavior himself. Someone will die under his care. He cares nothing for his patients and is all about how much money he can make. Talks down to you at every appointment. Feel worse coming out then when you went in. Please don't give him another dime.

in Akron, Ohio |
The absolute worst physician I have ever seen. Tried take me off Ambien that had saved my life and helped me be able to live a normal life again. Blamed my insomnia on electronics somehow and cell phones when at the time I only had a flip phone that I barely used. Stay Away!!
Akron, OH |
Very poor. Has his own ideas on treating severe anxiety/panic with drugs I've had before that cause more harm because he prescribes it in a "special" way.

I saw Dr. Shah several times over a period of a few months. I found him to be extremely judgmental, arrogant, incompetent and frankly very rude. I've never had anyone talk to me with such a condescending tone. The office is old, dirty, and needs renovated.
