My company changed insurance so I was forced to find another doctor. I found Dr. Khaliq Shah’s office through my insurance website.
I chose him because his office was convenient to home and work for appointments.
After my first appointment with him, I found him to be a likable and, more importantly, knowledgeable.
After the first visit, I would be kept waiting in the lobby for at least 45 minutes before seeing Dr. Shah.
This was consistently so from this point on. I put up with it for a handful more appointments because I figured all doctor’s offices fall behind.
This being the case, I started to schedule my appointments for first thing in the morning.
I found that Dr. Shah could not be bothered to show up to his appointments on time.
He walked in 45 minutes after my appointment was scheduled and apologized about traffic. Really?
The straw that broke the camel’s back was when they scheduled an appointment for a day after a holiday weekend.
His Office Manager/partner even called me the Friday before to confirm.
Come Tuesday morning, I was even 15 minutes early for my appointment!
I should have known better. It seems they decided to extend their holiday weekend without notifying any of their patients.
I left a voicemail for them to call and reschedule me before I left.They couldn’t be bothered with a return call.
Yes, Dr. Shah is nice and knowledgeable but his action, or lack thereof, showed that he did not value his patients.
If you want your time to be wasted, I highly recommend him. If you value your time, find another doctor.
