I feel well-cared for by Dr. Shah! I have had numerous eye issues over the years and I am so happy with the treatment and care I have received from Dr. Shah. She is attentive, intelligent, confident and kind to me and has worked very hard with to help me with my eye issues. She never hesitated to reach out with text messages and phone calls after surgical procedures which makes me feel at ease. She uses the team approach and communicates with my other docs concerning my case. She sees me whenever I have a problem or concern. I’m very grateful that Dr. Shah is my eye doctor and surgeon and the entire team of staff and doctors at ECI has really been stellar. Thank you so very much Dr. Shah and Staff— I appreciate you!
