Dr. Shah performed emergency surgery on me to repair an aortic dissection. It is a complicated surgery done with very little notice that he seems to have executed quite well. I would feel comfortable knowing he is working on any of my friends or family.

I went to him for varicose veins that we're causing me pain and discomfort. Dr. Shah seems to be stretched very thin when it comes to his patients, as each visit cost me $70 in co-pays and allotted me about two minutes of time talking with him. He relies on other staff to explain what's going on and seems almost impatient to get to the next person. And his medical decisions were inadequate to help fix my problems. It took going to a doctor dedicated to veins that I realized the difference.

Dr. Shah was part of team of vascular surgeons at Cedar Sinai who diagnosed and them monitored for a year a small saccular aneurysm of my abdominal aorta. The collective expertise of the team and their recommendation that complication risk with them doing the surgery was even smaller than very small risk of rupture assuming periodic monitoring, motivated me to undergo the endovascular AAA repair.. .His excellent bedside manner, and experience and expertise were comforting...Great result.
