I had an 8 am appointment and i didn't get called into the office till 815 am and didn't see tDr Shaw till almost 850am . I take the 8 am appointment so i can see the doctor and head to work . I was told that Dr Shaw was double booked by the office and the office told me that Dr Shaw has to ok a double booking ??? I cannot afford to sit and wait for almost an hour once i have my 8 am appointment . Extremely unhappy with how this went down

Excellent care

I have never had a bad experience with his provider

June 01, 2018

Great explanations. Very pleasant caring demeanor. I look.forward to the very frank, direct explanations that are always delivered in a caring way by all the members of my Transplant team. The only member of the team I am yet to see is my surgeon Dr. Tevar. But he did a fantastic job. my actual transplant surgery went really well. I have to say that the nursing staff on the Transplant wing was unbelievable.

Dr. Shah helps with any and all problems , not just kidney problems.as I have said before he is the BEST.

May 16, 2018

This provider has ALWAYS been late or behind schedule for my appointments. It is disrespectful to the patient to always be late for their appointments.

May 09, 2018

Dr. Shaw is a competent and very caring provider. I feel he is always looking out for my best interest. He is very intelligent and always personal.

It was my first visit with Dr. Shah and I can't say enough good things about him or his staff. It was a wonderful experience (for a doctor visit!!!)
