I will be filling an Insurance Fraud case against Dermuss 1/25/2012

I checnged to Dermuss becasue it was closer to my house. I went in for a wart removal on my hand. I have had this before, it was a $25 copay. She took a biopsy of the wart, but never even removed it with nitrogen. I got a bill for a Level 4 pathology biopsy since she had it tested for cancer. Everyone knows that this was just a wart and not something she couldn't tell what is was - being a Dermotologoist. I got a bill for $314 and she billed my insurance carrier $510. I was screamed at by her office manager for questioning the bill, she just kepot yelling ""THIS IS YOUr bill, pay your bill"". thIS IS EXTREMEMLY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE ON TOP OF INSURANCE FRAUD. I It seems like insurance fraud must happen there a lot for a customer to get yelled at after asking the first question for my first visit, on the first phone call to them. The one good rating listed here seems false, as if the office wrote it. If Dr. Shah and here collection agaeny TRANSWORLD again fails to answer my 3rd letter to them in 6 months trying to clear this up, I will be filing a BBB report, writing a siliar review on the Doctor's section of Angie's List, alerting Blue Cross Blue Shield for Insurance Fraud, and ask my attorney if I have a case for mental stree aND PUNATIVE DAMAGES SINCE THIS HAS UPSET ME SO MUCH. more

I left crying :( 11/29/2011

Do you ever leave somewhere with a pit in your stomach? This is the experience I had here. I was referred by a friend for my children's warts on their hands. I had appointments for 2 of my 3 children. When we entered the exam room, the nurse looked very annoyed that we were there. When my kids were talking, she kept ""shushing"" them (even though I was present). When the Doctor walked in, my one daughter was going to ask her a question and she walked up to her and said ""Stop!"". Wow. When my daughter had her wart burned off, she was crying very loudly because it hurt her. I asked the nurse if that was normal and she said ""NO!"" When my son had his warts treated, the Doctor talked down to me about his ezcema without asking what treatment I use. She simply told me I needed to ""get on top of it!"". Again - a slap in the face. I felt so embarassed, insulted, degraded and angry. I am a college educated professional (not that it matters), but it really is shocking. I would recommend to stay far away from this dermatologist. I love my own which is Advanced Dermatology in Lincolnshire. more

Excellent! 10/23/2009

I am a new patient. i came with shorts and a tanktop so she could see my skin. i checked out okay. i think the visit was pretty lighthearted. i found them all to enjoy being there. I was told to buy a cream but i didn't purchase it because of cost. i've read the other reviews, just because it's prescribed that doesn't mean you have to get it. it wont get better however. to the comment below, remember she is the one who went to med school. NOT you. If she says it's okay, it probably is. Pros: Efficent getting in and out Cons: scheduling more

Didn't get a thorough exam... 10/19/2009

I've seen Dr. Shah twice, two years apart, for routine ""mole screenings"", because I have a family history of skin cancer and have had skin cancer myself (basal cell). On both visits, I felt Dr. Shah did a very cursory exam. After the first time this happened, I felt a little shell-shocked and decided that I'd be more forceful the next time. But I recently had the second exam, and was this time even more disappointed. For example, I was wearing jeans, and although she pulled up the bottom part of my jeans to examine my calves, she never saw the top of my legs! And what about the top of my head? Or my buttocks? When I go in for a comprehensive mole check, I expect all areas of my body to be examined, not just a few. All the while, she kept repeating that she ""wasn't concerned at all"". Well, it's not about HER being concerned! I'm the patient! I won't be giving Dr. Shah another chance, I'm afraid. I've gotten the feeling she likes working a few hours a week and driving her little sports car... Pros: Dr.'s personality seems sweet and helpful at first... Cons: But then she becomes condescending. more

findanotherdoctor 10/12/2009

I had a bad experience with this Dr Shah-Sheth. The Dr. would not listen to my thoughts and ideas as to what the problem may be, and even after stating that I had concerns about steriod based creams, prescribed one for me. Then has you purchase these really expensive creams at the counter that you can buy at Walgreens for half the cost. I do NOT recommend this office for anyone needing a dermatologist. Cons: nickles and dimes you to death more

Terrible!!;(StayAway! 10/9/2009

I agree with the previous negative comments and have had a similar experience. I would encourage people to look and ask their friends or family for someone other than Dr. Shah-Sheth to go to. My aunt even had a bad experience, felt like it was a waste of her time and money for what she was diagnosed and told to buy there. That's why I mention to ask around, we both got taken. more


Dr. Shah-Sheth - SHOW ME THE MONEY. This is the only thing on her mind and her office staff. I have seen several dermatologists concerning a severe skin condition. Once I was referred to Mayo Clinic by Northwestern Memorial Hospital I had to gather 4 years of medical records and biopsies. I was really pleased to see my other dermatologists finding out about my problem had no problem sending me all my records ASAP, to my surprise at no charge, but Dr. Shah-Sheth referred me to the fine print on her office policies that there is a outrageous amount of money required to receive any medical records or biopsies( this fee starts at $50.00) and could go higher based on the number of pages. Maybe Dr. Shah-Sheth should read the Hippa Privacy, which states there is a charge but a reasonable charge that starts at pennies per page which is considered reasonable charges. Once again, I would not reccommend Dr. Shah-Sheth, all she is out for is money. Shame on you, SHOW ME THE MONEY. Cons: Will take your money more

Friendly and professional 6/26/2009

Dr. Shah-Seth has a wonderful bedside manner, so to speak with children and adults. Both my teen and myself have had dermatology issues. Skin cancer has occurred on both sides of our family. Dr. Shah-Seth is thorough in her explanations presenting options for procedures and has a manner that is professional and approachable. She is the reason we switched from a different dermatologist. Pros: Dr. Shah-Seth Cons: Limited Hours more

Awful! 5/8/2008

I saw Dr. Shah-Sheth for my son who has moderate acne problem. The Dr. looked at his face briefly and explained a regimen and then proceeded to check off on a list the items she wanted him to use, never letting me know that these were her products that needed to be purchased at the conclusion of the visit. Total bill: $30 insurance co-pay and over $200 for the products!!!! If the products were helpful I wouldn't have minded so much, but they made my son's face worse. More follow up visits were required with more prescriptions needed. I called the office and explained the situation. Her staff is rude and unhelpful. Beware!!. more
