My spouse and I have seen Dr Shah for more than twenty years. He has the two most important qualities of a great physician-----technical skill and interest in his patients. He explains matters fully and well. There are no negatives about his performance.

Review for Dr. Shah

Dr. Z and his staff were pleasant, professional and on time, a rare thing for doctors these days. I felt he listened and made good suggestions. When it came time for surgery, I was in and out in no time at all with no problems or issues. Highly recommend!

I had LASIK with Dr. Whitten. He and his staff were wonderful. The most helpful thing during the procedure itself was definitely getting a narration of what he was going to do just before he did it. My eyesight now is great! I can see people! I can drive without glasses!

Dr. Glaser is the best and most competent Doctor I have ever had. He is friendly and informative, asks questions, and covers all the points I had planned to ask about but forgot to write down. That he is easy to talk to about things I don't want to talk about with anyone is an added plus!

Dr. Wathen treated my entire family for ~25 years. He gives you a Plan A and Plan B, as he calls them. Plan A is less aggressive; if that doesn't work, then he moves to plan B. He always had time for us.

Thrilled with results of my Lasik. Dr. Whitten was very professional at each visit. The procedure itself was very impressive. He carefully and clearly explained every step during the procedure, keeping this anxious patient’s mind at ease. (The Valium ahead of surgery was appreciated as well.)

Interested in only prescribing medication to "mask" a health issue instead of trying to figure out what the underlying health issue is. OTC supplements say to consult your physician before taking and when I did, she shrugged her shoulders.

My mom has stage 4 emphysema and she called it a slight case of COPD. My mom's pulmonoligist in Johms Hopkins recommended us to steer clear of her but my mom wanted to try her anyway. She's a joke of a dr. Following Johns Hopkins recommendation and going to Calvert instead.
