This was my 6-month follow up appointment. Dr. Shah was, as always, thorough and timely. Since starting with him and other Cardiologists in his group in 1999 they have managed to keep me alive. Beginning with a mild Stroke in 1987 while on Active Military duty followed by Angioplasty in 1989, I eventually had a Cardiac event in 1999 involving the same area of the original Angioplasty which required emergency dual bypass procedure. Over time, attempts to lead a healthy lifestyle, and several more Cardiac events I have been with Dr. Shah for quite a while. I trust his work, opinion, and advice. He and his staff are top-notch. Highly recommend him if anyone needs a trustworthy Cardiologist.

I found Dr Shah via web search. He is a specialist in heart, and also in advanced stress test techniques to look for blockage. I had chest pain, and was scared it could be my heart. He explained to me in lot of detail what he initially thought, why he was to do some tests, and then went over the results. It turned out I had a blockage, which he took care of in the hospital. I have not had any more problems thankfully, since then. Thank you Dr Shah!!

I saw Dr Shah since I was having extra heart beats. Dr Shah listened to me carefully. He explained to me his thought process in detail in language that I can understand. He completed the tests, figured out the problem, and put me on medication that helped me a lot. I could not ask for more. Very very good doctor.
