Does not even spend more than 10 minutes with you and recklessly prescribes medication without checking your current medications for serious interactions. Prescribed medication that wasn't even meant to relieve pain.

I have a rare genetic condition (Ehlers Danlos) with other commorbid conditions. Another speciality doctor referred me to Dr Shah because she said De Shah looked at patients in a more wholistic way. I have found Dr Shah friendly, direct and informed. She was able to even identify a specific pain issue no other doctor has been able to help with. I am quite hesitant about new medications, and I found she was very respectful of that. Ultimately my pain is far better today thanks to her help.
