    More and more nightmarish things are going to come to light about Shah and his medical care. So unfortunate and so sad. These poor families.

    I am a patient at CIDS for 5 years. You hardly ever saw Dr Shah it’s always been a revolving door of less than professional PA’s,NP’s and students. You’d think Dr. Shah would be more involved in his own practice. He just has his hands in too many pots. He wants to be at Mountain View as a practicing director.Then he’s supposed to be a supervising physician over two busy medical offices and allied medical infusion services. He then maintains an instructor at a medical school. It’s just impossible some part of all that has just got to give. I have thought so long of moving my care and was reluctant to move to a worse practice. Caveat Emptor.

    I lost faith in this turd 4 years ago when he put my mother on infusion antibiotics for an infection he could not name. He had no idea what he was doing. He did not test for infection or for treatment results.
