Ratings for Dr. Aanand Shah
This dr. needs to go back to school, and learn how to be a good dr. The staff at the front, are a joke!! They hire people who haven't a clue of manners. My first time there, the receptionist was saying how FXXXING hot it was outside. I couldn't believe my ears!!! NOT PROFESSIONAL AT ALL! I will never go back there!!!! I go there with a cold and Dr Shah decides on his own to send me to an ENT Doesn't tell me, or discuss it with me even. I get a call from the receptionist, and she says she ma an appt. I said,,,,,NO,,,I don't need an appt. Then yesterday (3 months later) I get this call from the U of A hospital saying I have an appt. next Thursday at a specialist. I called and cancelled it. The receptionist obviously never cancelled it previous. Then the last appt. the DR. prescribed me PENICILLIN, AS I HAD A COLD. I have a severe allergy to penicillin. I stop breathing when if I was to take it. The clerk at Shoppers Drug caught this mistake, as it is on my file. I've been to the clinic 3 times, and TODAY the receptionist said to me. "Oh well the DR made the mistake because we were just putting the Penicillin alert on your chart, and he never had it. It should be on a chart the 1 st day the patient comes to the clinic. Don't go to this clinic. The Dr is a waste of time.
Always rude, curt, grouchy. He's my "family" doctor, got him when i moved to edmonton because he was the only one taking new patients. I've seen him over a dozen times in the last four years, i've never once seen him crack a smile or say hello, or make the slightest attempt at being human. Guy is a complete dick, seems like he hates his job.
I have always had excellent experiences with him. I have been a patient of his for 4 years, and he has always been thorough, patient, and informative with me. He listens as I explain my symptoms, schedules the appropriate testing, the office calls for follow-up if results are unusual, he will explain things to me for as long as I would like, and overall I find the service excellent. He appears very knowledgeable to me. He has made numerous referrals for me, and they are always completed in a speedy manner. In fact, his office will even call me with results from the tests that specialists sent me for. I have been nothing but pleased with his service. And, I think he dresses very attractively; it's like eye candy for me every time I go to the doctor - I love it!
I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS DR AND CLINIC AT ALL. First of all, I went in the clinic and all the Filipinos are just chatting on their own language and did not bother to offer help. That's very unprofessional. They aren't there to chat and people coming in the clinic are either in pain or sick. Secondly, the DR is the WORST ever that I have encountered. He made me feel that my case is something that doesn't need attention. I am in pain cause of my swollen knees and can't barely walk. He saw me holding onto the walls just to get out of the clinic but he had never assisted me. He kept going out of the room and then cae bck twice just to give the prescription. He left without explaining what could have caused this so When I managed to get out of the room I looked for him cause he did not give me an explanation. When I found him, he said "I have no idea". Very disappointing for a DR who went to school for so many years, have studied so much medical books and yet give an answer such as that. He's a perfect example of a DR who works for the money but not because they are concerned with the patients.
Excellent Doctor. Very intelligent and to the point. I've been seeing Dr. Shah for a few years now and have nothing but great respect for the man. He focuses on the symptoms and analyzes the best way to move forward. He answers all questions thoughtfully and accurately. I would recommend him to anybody.
This is by far the worst dr I've ever met ..I feel bad just saying like that but it's the truth .if your looking for someone to care for you with compassion and good bed side manner this is not the Dr I could care less how he dresses as long as he is clean but he has no warmth he never asks questions and you definitely feel as if your a burden . This doctor has alot to learn . I wouldn't recommend him unless your just going in for something simple like heartburn then he's your man
Very grimey almost robotic felt very uncomfortable with him. Didn't listen to my problems very much take two but don't call him in the morning. Not recommended extremely arrogant people skills are nill
He is not the doctor for the ones who need opinion or help. Robotic approach, always in hurry, worst is poor listener and no follow up even when u require d most. He can not relate to what patient want. Do not opt him if u need serious care n attention :(. I 'm very disappointed.
