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!

I first met Dr. Shah almost 20 years ago when I ruptured my Achilles Tendon. He operated on me and after all these years, I have felt no pain, no discomfort nor has my life been affected negatively in any way because of my injury and Dr. Shah's surgery. A few months ago, I suffered two tears in my left knee and have seen Dr. Shah several times about this injury which he properly diagnosed and sent me to physical therapy and the injury seems to be subsiding. I highly recommend Dr. Shah.

I highly recommend Dr. Shah. I originally saw a different Ortho, however, he didn't feel like I needed help with my shoulder and he dropped me. I saw Dr. Shah as a 2nd opinion and it was the best move I could have made. He fixed my shoulder and I couldn't be more grateful to how amazing he was. His patient care, his skill, his follow-up, there is no one better than him. It's because of him that I dont have any pain anymore, I have full ROM, im back to being myself. I'm very thankful for Dr. Shah

I am a patient of Dr Shah since 2016. Dr Shah is an amazing doctor, not only is he professional but he is also compassionate. Dr Shah takes his time and listen to your concerns and understanding the level of pain you are enduring. I couldn’t ask for a better doctor to repair my shoulder. I recommend to my husband, family and friends. They all praise his professionalism and sincerity. “Thank you Dr Shah, you are an AMAZING doctor. Your true patients know how awesome you are.”

rude and condescending. I would not recommend him or this practice. They consistently overbook appointments so the wait is usually about an hour.

His manner was condescending and nasty. If I am paying for a service I expect to be treated respectfully. I will not go back, nor would I recommend any practice that he is associated with.

Dr. Shah performed my rotator cuff repair in Oct. 2017. His kind and professional approach put me at ease and was the primary factor in my decision to have the surgery. He patiently answered all my questions and has guided my rehabilation. I am now almost fully recovered and I look forward to catching a big striped bass in the spring thanks to Dr. Shah.

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!

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!

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.
