Allergy doctor pleads guilty to using serum without license

A Dublin-based allergy doctor pleaded guilty Thursday to using the serum for allergy injections without holding the required license. Dr. Summit Shah, 36, was ordered to pay $210,031 in restitution to insurance providers to cover the cost of the drugs under a plea agreement. He pleaded guilty to four felony counts of selling, purchasing or delivering dangerous drugs. As part of the agreement, prosecutors dismissed Medicaid-fraud charges against Shah, who operates Premier Allergy on Perimeter Drive.
