What People Say About Dr. Tina Shah, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
She doesn't seem to be very experienced. Also, she (or her office staff) doesn't return patients phone calls regarding questions concerning the treatment or blood tests results. The office is dirty and located in an even dirtier building. Other than that, she is friendly and cordial (as any doctor should be ).

She is very kind and knowledgeable. She spent over an hour with me. She is the only doctor I've has that has fully listened to me and examined me. I'm very happy with her care.

She didn't know how to take an x-ray. Instead of asking me to move so the x-ray machine would capture the area needed; she just said...that will have to do. I witnessed unsterile techniques while she was preparing injections and seemed surprised when I refused to let her inject me. Blood work ordered; results came back with some issues, she never called to give me the results. Still no call back 3 months later. Wants recheck for money, but doesn't know what to do.Old building,seems unclean
