The WORST physician of all time. Left me with torn meniscus after a surgery to remove the tear in December. Came back to his office multiple times ovecomplaining of constant pain. He did not care and rushed me out of his office. I tried physical therapy on my own even though he did not think it would help and finally sought another surgeon's opinion. The second surgeon found that I still had tear from the first surgery and I just had my second meniscus surgery this week. Dr. Shah is the pits.

I have been going to Dr Shah for almost 10 years and have found him to be the very best around for knee surgery. I have had both meniscus and full knee replacement with him on both my knees. He is a professional and knowledgeable doctor I trust totally for any of my orthopedic needs. We connected on treatment from our very first appointment. He is neither too conservative or too aggressive in his treatment. I highly recommend him to anyone with orthopedic needs.

Dr. Shah can say enough about how wonderful is to me when I came to him with my right knee a mess he was caring and compassionate. After several attempts to avoid a total knee replacement there was no choice. He walked me through the entire process prior to surgery and on the day of surgery was there when I woke up. Stopped by the next day to check on me. At all of my follow up appointments after surgery is caring and compassion was always there. I will recommend him to anyone that needs.

My experience s with Dr. Shah were wonderful. He performed both a successful partial knee replacemen,as well as a successful total knee replacement. His dedication to my recovery and his compassionate care gave me confident I could be healed. He is now the only knee doctor I will - see. I trust him completely with my care.
