Office staff are professional and friendly at the same time. No feeling of arrogance seen at some other doc's offices. Not sure how they do it, but they have fit me in within a few days of my calling. Wait in examining room is prob a few minutes more than ideal, but far better than some providers. Most important (to me): Dr. Shah explains situation and options very clearly. He seems willing to spend as much time with me as i would like. I always go into a doctor's office with questions typed out (it's my thing!) and Dr. Shah is patient as i go through the questions. I leave with a complete understanding of what we did and what comes next.

I got super bad fracture on my ankle that needed lots of screws and metal bar to rebuild it. I could not feel my foot at that time for the ankle was completely dislocated and one bone was completely fractured. Dr Shah fixed all for me. 2 months later I can walk as free. A few more month later Dr Shah removed the hardwares for me. Unbelievable! I can even immediately walk as free. Thank Dr Shah for the awesome treatment. W feel so lucky to have Dr Shah to cure me and really thank Shah very much.

I have had three surgeries with Kansas City Spine and Sports Medicine--two with Dr. Shah. Both were shoulder repairs. The best testimony I can offer is that after having one shoulder done, I came back to the same surgeon for the other. Dr. Shah is both a technical master and an artisan in orthopedic surgery. His medical team is world-class, and his administrative team is equally outstanding. No one wants to have orthopedic surgery, but if you need it, go to KC Spine & Sports Medicine.

All staff and physician are very helpful, response time on telephone calls and appointments are very good. Minimal waiting on scheduled appointments. All questions are answered immediately or if a call back is required, it is usually in the same day. All in all, everyone is very helpful and professional.

Dr. Shah diagnoses the problem, recommends treatment options and completes the treatment...resulting in the results you came for. I have been very satisfied with the surgery on my knee, the shot for my rotator cuff, and all the treatments for my knees. I highly recommend Dr. Shah for his medical skills, his patient empathy, and the treatments he recommends.

Dr. Shah did a femur fracture surgery and I must say he did an excellent job. I had no complications considering the extensive surgery. Most people do not recover as quickly as I did. The only problem that I have is that he is affiliated with Menorah hospital and I don’t recommend anyone to recover at Menorah, my worst experience ever. Too bad he is affiliated with Menorah.

I was an RN the hospital that referred us to Dr Shah, so I had confidence in this referral. After a Achilles tendon injury, x-ray, MRI and exam we were told "everything is intact, you can get out of the boot and wear shoes and start rehab" I was surprised to say the least, but when the Therapist expressed concern,read MRI report ourselves and the summary said " high grade tear of the achilles tendon 90%" Shah didn't even read the report!! 2nd opinion Dr could tell it was torn from xray alone!

I experienced a severely shattered wrist and had the outstanding good fortune of being treated by Dr. Shah. He is possibly the very best and he preformed the surgery required to repair my problem and it is again like it never happened!! Dr. Shah is in my opinion the best in his profession and I highly suggest to anyone needing surgery to consider contacting Dr. Shah! You will never regret that choice!
