Having been an orthopedic nurse myself for several years with the pleasure of working with Dr. Shah, I have the experience of both coworker & patient. Personally & professionally, Dr. Shah is one of the best doctors with whom I have worked. He genuinely cares for his patients & thoroughly explores all options to ensure the best one is used for each individual. He makes sure to explain everything in detail & never rushes through his time with patients. Top notch!
