I visited Capital Digestive Care and Dr. Shah for care related to IBD. I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr. Shah and Capital Digestive Care. Everyone in the office was friendly, fast, and accommodating. Dr. Shah is very knowledgeable, professional, and makes you feel comfortable and understood. She is great about working out a treatment plan and taking into consideration your own preferences. You can tell she truly cares about you and the treatment you choose and making sure you are staying healthy.

At Capital Digestive Care I felt warmly welcomed at every step of the process- even @ front desk. This was my first consultation w/Dr Shah. She seemed prepared for the conversation, had suggestions for me, we had time to go over every symptom & concern that I had- I did not feel rushed! She was supportive & seemed knowledgable on each issue mentioned. She gave me a gameplan to test out and we will revisit in a couple months. I feel confident so far to work on digestive issues with Dr Shah!

My son is a Colitis patient of Dr. Shah's. She has been a literal life-saver for him. She absolutely cares for him and calls to check up on him if she hasn't seen him as frequently as she likes. During a recent hospital stay she called and texted us constantly to keep abreast of what was going on and at 11 pm was up compiling and forwarding pertinent medical records for me to give to the doc at the hospital. My son avoided unnecessary surgery becuz of her intervention!! We love love love her!

Doesn't listen to the patient and doesn't really care to either. No follow up. Only go to this doctor if you're interested in wasting time and money.
