Huntsville Doctor Appears In Court On Harassment Charge

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - A Huntsville doctor accused harassment pleaded not guilty to a judge this morning.

Dr. Amish Shah entered the plea at his arraignment in Huntsville Municipal Court.  He appeared before Judge Sonny Rodenhauser.  The judge set his trial for May 30 at 8:30 a.m.

Dr. Shah's lawyer and family were present.  The nephrologist turned himself into Huntsville Police on Thursday morning to face the charge of harassment.

A magistrate issued a warrant for the doctor's arrest earlier this week.

The charge comes from a report filed by an employee of Huntsville Hospital.

Dr. Shah is an independent member of the medical staff at Huntsville Hospital and Crestwood Medical Center.  He also runs a private practice on Whitesport Drive.
