Dr Shia was awesome. I'm a 47 yr old woman who needed a full shoulder replacement. Dr. Shia was friendly, informative and did a great job on my shoulder. His assistant Jackie was also very helpful. Never waited more than 1 hr for a call back. I highly recommend this team for your shoulder and elbow medical needs!
in Wallingford, CT |
Dr. Shia prescribed an entire month's worth of 800mg ibuprofen to my husband for a very minor injury, instructing him to take 3 a day, for the month, without so much as a warning on what ibuprofen could do to your stomach. He now has an ulcer, and we've spent $4000 on tests and treatment. I would not recommend Dr. Shia to anyone. As a medical professional he should be educating his patients and not carelessly prescribing medication.
