He was terrific, and told us just how it was, didn't mince words.
He misdiagnosed me. He said I was stable. He would see me in one year. I had a hole in each Retina and one that had been there for some time. I felt he did not give me a thorough examination. You wait to see him for an hour and he might spend 5 minutes with you. Would not recommend this Doctor. I have been seeing doctors from this group for over 50 years.
Dr. Shah has skill that is second to none. I had a detached retina and feared I would be blind in one eye. The surgery went perfectly, and each time I follow up with Dr. Shah, he is caring and extremely positive. Still have a way to go with my healing, but know I'm in good hands. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Shah and the Retina Institute of St. Louis MO, to anyone needing his field of expertise. Dr. Shah's staff is professional and helpful, too. Thank you Dr. Shah!
I met Dr. Rao in 2008 when I was diagnosed with a severe case of Uveitis throughout my entire right eye. Never having any problems with my vision, I was shocked to find out that this disease was leading to blindness for me. Dr. Rao was so compassionate and positive helping me with this emotional roller coaster; as well as being an extremely talented doctor and surgeon. He worked very closely and diligently with my other doctors watching my overall health. In fact, I went to John?s Hopkins in Bal
Dr. Shah is a very skilled physician. His personality is very positive and friendly. Dr. Shah is confronted with people who are depressed about losing their sight, yet he remains very positive and has helped me restore my sight. He practices the latest advances in treating people with macular degeneration. He is the perfect combination of skill and upbeat personality that makes him an outstanding physician and surgeon.
Great doctor and helped figure out that I had a blood disorder and that is what caused the stroke in my eye. The other doctor just jumped in and gave me a shot on my eye and not try to figure out what caused it.
Dr. Rao is very skilled in his work. He evaluates things very thoroughly and explains things in an understandable way. He has a very gentle manor and yet is very direct in his communication. I feel like he is truly interested in me as a person! I have been seeing him as my retina specialist for 9 years and am so grateful for his level of care.
