Dr Shah was filling in for Dr Bolla at the time of my father's appointment. Dr Shah was very courteous but Dr Bolla understands my father's history. Some of the explanations Dr Shah gave for some of the medications my father is on didn't make sense. We made the decision to keep everything status quo until his next appointment with Dr Bolla.
