I have been seeing Dr. Cha for about 18 years now. He has been an intricate part of my treatment of high blood pressure and SVT. I am happy to report that my blood pressure has been under control for some time now and I haven’t had an SVT attack in years. He has an amazing staff and a patient portal that is so easy to use and they respond to my emails so quickly it amazes me every time. Theys do all their testing on site and is so relieving to know that him and his staff are right on top of my care. I really hope this helps you pick him as a provider.

Dr. Shah was very personable and took time out of the visit to explain to me what the symptoms were and meant. He really knows his medicine and made sure to prescribe the most reasonable treatment. His staff did a good job following up and he answered all the questions asked and explained everything thoroughly.

Dr. Shah is alright. His nurse is very nice, the office staff appear to be in conflict with one another. However the technician who did my test was horrible!!!! He was rude, unsympathetic , uncaring, and completely into himself. I don't know his name but you can't miss him. He has a very large disgusting handlebar mustache . Try to ask for someone else to do your tests.

Dr. Shah mischaracterized what I said my symptoms were and he was dismissive of my concerns. He did not take my complaints seriously. In the course of our discussion, he made errors regarding my health history. He was personable and friendly, but I felt he did not really pay attention to what my symptoms actually are .
