I give it one star because there are none lower. This is a terrible place any way you look at it and I would advise everyone to avoid at all cost!

My elderly mother was diagnosed by her PCP with shingles on her face around her eye. So he sent us Ms Shah's practice. This office saw us right away which was really great. We saw a very personable man who is only there a couple days a month (his name is either Bill or Bob). He too immediately said it was shingles and he started writing out a prescription for her and all of her instructions as well as making notes in her chart. But later that day she started getting extremely nauseous. I wasn't sure if it was the medication he put me on or not. So I called the office back the next day right when they opened (in fact I ended up calling twice because my mom was so miserable and no one was calling us back) so I could talk to someone about the possibility of changing my mom's meds or dosage. He wasn't there but Ms Shah was. She called back at the end of the day and told my mom to stop the medication and go back on the antibiotic eye drops the walk in clinic gave her for pink eye (which she definitely did not have). My mom was very sick so talking to Ms Shah was a little confusing to her (you know how fuzzy your mind is when you are in severe pain and you're nauseous on top of it). However this woman who has never met my mother nor saw what her face looked like, decided to take her off shingles medication and put her on pink eye medication. There are a couple different known medications for shingles and I was hoping she would change my mom's meds to one of those. I called my mom's PCP back and they changed her medication. Don't bother with these people. The right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. All she had to do was read my mom's chart to see her diagnosis and know that she didn't have pink eye
