I found Dr. Shah to be most encouraging from my first visit to his office. I sustained a water injury to my wrist and knee and he was highly recommended by my wrist doctor as the orthopedist to see for my knee injuries. Everytime i went for a follow up visit he was thorough in his explanation to me, showed me the x-rays and indicated how i was healing and was always willing and available to answer any questions i may have. I would recommend him to anyone and already recommended my brother in law

I have been a past patient of Dr. Shah for shoulder and knee issues. He is knowledgeable, patient, trustworthy and kind. Today, I took my 11yr old daughter in for a consultation and now I can say he is also amazing with children. He will always be my “go to” orthopedist for any issues moving forward. I highly recommend him to anyone reading this.
Hi Bill G., thank you for taking the time to leave a review for us. We're happy we could meet your expectations!
in Bayport, NY |
I suffered from a fully torn ACL and partially torn meniscus. Dr. Shah was instrumental in my recovery. In addition to recommending the PT at Orlin Cohen/ Bohemia, he patiently explained what I was in store for regarding my recovery. He emphasized the importance of pre-op therapy, the details of my choices in surgery options, the devotion I needed to commit to for post-op therapy, and the long term recovery. He did the surgery and I'm now back to work. He is a gentleman and a true professional.
R.a., reviews like this give us motivation and help us ensure we provide high-quality care. Thank you again for leaving us this response!

Definitely would recommend Dr. Shah. Happy with how he answered all my questions and explained everything clearly. Well organized office, very helpful staff.
Hi Linda, we are very happy to have provided you with such a positive experience!
Plainview, NY |
Dr. Shah may have experience as a knee doctor. However, his bedside manner is unpleasant and condescending. If you are a patient that needs TLC and wants someone who treats the WHOLE person, not just the knee, DO NOT go to him. I would not recommend him at all.
At Orlin & Cohen, we are committed to providing superior orthopedic care to every patient, every day. We, therefore, immediately alerted Dr. Shah to your concerns. Should you wish to speak further, please call Ashley, our Patient Relations Manager, at 516-536-2800.

Dr Shah is an excellent doctor who takes his time explaining options to his patients. His caring and expertise make me trust him and give me confidence in his recommended treatment. I will definitely recommend him to family and friends.
Hi Larry. On behalf of everyone at Orlin and Cohen and Dr. Shah, thank you for the kind words!
in Holbrook, NY |
Dr. Shah has a God given talent. He is extremely patient and very knowledge in his field
in Inwood |
Very Profesional and knowledgeable. I feel comfortable for his answers to my questions. I feel very secure to have him taken care of me and my family as a Doctor.
