Got a fast appointment in to get a second opinion on my son’s finger injury. He quickly assessed exactly what we thought and have done therapy suggestions. His office is professional, efficient and friendly.

I am kind of torn here the Doctor is great but if he is gone the staff and other doctors don't give a hoot about you. Just had surgery and a platelet shot on my right elbow. He went on vacation suppose to follow up with his associate 6 days afterwords for the follow up so I called and found out that no one else but Shah himself can make a decision about my case. Why shoul I go see him waste my money if he is not going to do anything for me. They are responsible for my post op care yet can't ugh.

Dr Shah saved my hand after a tendon was inoculated with Pasteurella Multocida from a nick of my cats canine tooth. It wasn't a bite, she was licking top of hand and I moved it away too quickly accidentally bumping the tooth, which just barely grazed a tendon sheath. With his expert surgery he was able to lance the sheath allowing the penicillin I had been taking to get to the pathogen. Thank You Dr. Shah.
