My psychiatrist retired so I had to find another psychiatrist in the area because the office of my former psychiatrist is overcrowded with patients. I found Dr. Shah and my first visit to him will be my last. He came off as very rude, arrogant, and incompetent. He asked me a whole bunch of questions that were not relevant and talked to me in a very demeaning tone. Stay away from this doctor. He seems to have issues himself.

I've been Dr Shahs patient for around 2 years now. I've seen nothing but the finest in care from his office. After suffering for years with depression and anxiety I received help through Dr Shah office. I have nothing but good things to say about him.

After being treated for depression with paxil and XANAX, I had a psychotic break and I am convinced that Dr. Shah's treatment methods brought me back from the brink. He's a great clinician.

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.

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!!

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.
