I woke up one morning with symptoms of Alopecia Areata. After spending many hours researching for a treatment, I decided to make a consultation at Shah Aesthetics. Now, two months after my treatments, I'm finally leaving the house without a hat. It was only a few days after my first treatment that I noticed my hair was growing back. I would describe my condition as severe because I had many patches of hair loss and one 5-inch patch just behind my hairline. I was anxious to get my confidence back. Seeing Dr. Chughtai & Dr. Shah was a miracle for me. Medical assistant, Delia, and everyone at the clinic is such a blessing! Because this is a life-long autoimmune disorder, I will be sure to continue my treatments as needed, and most importantly, to de-stress. Thank you sincerely, to everyone. To go in detail about the experience, my two treatments were 4 weeks apart: PRP and steroid (kenalog) injections . Both were done on separate days to help reactivate the hair follicles.

I visited Dr. Shah after noticing frown lines in my recent pictures. After four days, I noticed the frown lines had disappeared. How I wish I had've went sooner! Dr. Shah was personable, professional and had me finished in no time. His staff was friendly, yet professional and attentive to all my needs. I'm definitely going back and recommending all of my friends.

If you take your health and well being seriously, PLEASE pass on Dr. Anil Shah. His office is filthy (garbage overflowing in the patient care rooms, foul smelling, dirty), wait time was over 90 minutes when I walked out! I never even had an opportunity to have a consultation with Dr. Shah. If this type of first impression he find acceptable, clearly it is a refection of how he values his level/quality of patient care, surgical expectation and overall unprofessional. HIGHLY DO NOT RECOMMEND. NOTE

Dr. Shah and his team went above and beyond for me: to working with my insurance company, scheduling a surgery center location and working out the surgery center fees. In addition, he is the only surgeon to personally follow up with me himself the night after my surgery just to make sure I was doing well. Now it has been a year since the surgery and I am so so happy with my new look and able to breath better too! Thanks again for everything Dr. Shah and Staff!! I am truly blessed!

This man is not only a technician but a true artist. I broke my nose over a decade ago and he completely reconstructed it, my septum had completely collapse and I had trouble breathing and sleeping. My nose looks and functions perfectly as a professional singer that means everything ! I am now lifelong client for facial treatments, yearly Botox, filler and laser resurfacing, as an entertainer & fitness instructor my looks are part of the job and this man & his amazing staff keep me on point!

I've waited a few years to write this review, just to see if anything would get better like he insisted it would. But nope. 3 years later and I still have a completely botched nose. I have horrible alar retraction, a drooping tip, tip bossae and a hanging columella. When I asked for a revision, he said; "well I'm happy with it, so I think we should leave it alone" - well it's not his face or money that was spent, so his happiness is irrelevant here. I'll always regret choosing this doctor.

Dr. Shah is thoroughly knowledgeable, realistically confident, understanding, and compassionate. He totally changed my daughters life and self confidence by restoring her breathing passages after sports injuries. She now has the nose that lets her feel as beautiful outside as we know her to be on the inside. Dr. Shah’s staff is wonderful, and we highly recommend this practice and the procedures they offer.

Dr. Shah is an expert in the beauty industry. He perfected my rhinoplasty years ago and I continue to see him for anti-aging treatments.
