What People Say About Dr. Samir Shah, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

He's arrogant, careless and not a 'straight-shooter', as he claims. He did not provide pain med in order for me to complete vital liver test & claimed my pain doc did not call him back. His solution? NOT to inform me, thereby delaying crucial test in order to tx life-threatening disease I have. When I was finally able to complete test, and it was mistakenly sent to another doctor--NOT my error--he terminated his tx of me leaving /out care for a life-threatening disease. He's a legend in his own mind. And completely devoid of medical, professional ethics, responsibility, to say nothing of the multiple errors of medical judgment he made while under his care. Power tends to corrupt, absolute power corrupting absolutely. No one is holding this man to a standard of ethical decency & medical responsibility. One would have to die 1st to be able to sue him for such malpractice. Trust him at your own risk, for he assumes u have no idea of his malpractice.
