What People Say About Dr. Alpesh Shah, MD

Dr. Shah is truly a caring and knowledgeable doctor. I can't believe that anyone would call him rude or condescending. He performed rotator cuff surgery on me 6 months ago and today I am pain free with full range of motion. I have recommended him to my family. He is kind and shows care that you don't see in many doctors. I give him my highest recommendation.

Dr. Shah re-repaired a meniscus tear and Baker's Cyst, that was poorly repaired previously. After having issues for 4 years, I can now, after only a few weeks of recovery, go back to all my normal activities pain free aside from slight arthritis. I am a 54 y/o, overweight female. I am back to complete care of my livestock after only 2 months. Dr. Shah is not only a great surgeon, he has such a wonderful manner! He is kind and very easy to speak with. He is genuinely interested in your life

I have already recommended Dr. Shaw to my family and friends. My dad has had several appointments already with Dr. Shaw and was also very pleased with the care provided. Dr. Shaw listened carefully to my concerns and addressed each with expert advice and treatment. What most impressed me about Dr. Shaw is the attention he gave to my concerns. He always spoke with a genuine interest and was exceptionally patient and professional. He even shook my hand each visit - very rare today!
