First, let us say that we appreciate having the services of Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center here in Danville. We both have been patients on several occasions, most recently in the new ICC unit.
It is now July, and we still have major concerns about the ongoing treatment of our physician Dr. Shahzad.
We have been his patients for 10 years and have received exceptional care from him. Not having his services available at EMRMC for the last six months has been very stressful. It is our understanding that Dr. Shahzad has done everything that has been asked of him, but after six months he is still not able to admit patients.
We do not think the situation involves malpractice and believe the state board in Louisville is not conducting any investigation that would result in the revocation of his license. If this situation cannot come before the hospital board again until August, we will have been without his services for eight months.
