What People Say About Dr. Purvi Shah, MD

Dr. Purvi Shah is one of the worst doctors I have ever encountered. She does not listen to her patients, insisted I do not have the food/medicine allergies I HAVE been tested and confirmed to have, and is very impatient. The prescribed treatment was horrible, making my breathing issues worse after the visit. I suggest seeing other doctors in this office and avoiding her at all costs.

We recently saw Dr. Shah for a comprehensive new patient visit. We found her to be pleasant, knowledgeable and interested in our list of problems. She spent quite a bit of time explaining her thoughts and ideas and finished our appointment with a round of allergy testing. We are very pleased to have found such a professional Allergist in our community.

Dr. Purvi Shah has very poor manners, gets impatient easily and has absolutely no understanding of allergies. She would never take the time to listen and when it came to medical conditions, her explanations were always hurried and misleading. I would not recommend her at all. However, I don't have any problem with the practice itself so we have started seeing another Doctor (who is really good) within the same office.
