Dr. Shah was wonderful, he spent time explaining and comforting us during a very difficult time. He never rushed and took the time to explain procedures in layman terms. He saved my life and I will forever be grateful to this wonderful and very skilled Dr.

I was diagnosed with Pseudomyxoma of the peritonei. Which is a very rare cancer. I was referred to seek help from Dr. Bavin Shah. The office staff was very welcoming and tentative. Dr. Shah was very knowledgeable and personable. He answered all of our questions in a way that we understood and addressed all of our concerns. Dr. Shah spent a total of 21 hours in 3 different surgeries to remove all of the cancer. As of February 19th 2020 I was declared cancer free. Because of Dr. Shah’s knowledge and professionalism I can now continue to live my life with my wife, children and grandchildren! Thank you!

Dr. Shah was absolutely incredible through the entire process. I was sent to him with a tumor, and he gave me his honest opinion about what he would do. He spent a long time explaining all of my options to me, I didn't feel hurried, rushed or unimportant. He made me feel like the only priority when he came in the room to talk to me. My report wasn't ready the next appt and he waited in the office until he had the report in hand and stayed til after the office closed to talk to me about every detail, and even tried to schedule my surgery right then and there with the hospitals. The surgery ended up being more difficult than he had thought, but he spent 5 hours doing a surgery lathroscopically to avoid cutting me open. He was communicative the entire time, always was able to fit me in with appointments when needed. Came to see me first thing in the morning the day after my surgery even tho I didn't get out til after 11pm. I highly recommend Dr. Shah and his staff. They are incredible!

I'm an experienced cancer patient, and my usual surgeon retired. My Oncologist recommended him, and I can't say enough good things. He literally went out of his way to take care of me and did a phenomenal job. Not only is he a talented surgeon, but a very nice person. Thank you Dr. Shah.

Dr. Shah cares about his patients he is very through. He takes the time to explain things well and is very caring and understanding. He performed surgery on my son who was very scared and he made him feel reassured. He is very genuine and truly cares. We saw him in the hospital.

My insurance coverage changed after one round of chemo and I needed to find a new oncologist. Dr Shah saw me in one day, thoroughly reviewed my records and determined I was not a surgical candidate. He personally got me an appointment with a medical oncologist and and scheduled a port insertion on the spot so my next chemo would not be delayed. I have never met a Dr. more compassionate or committed to their patients. He is the kind of Dr. everyone hopes for.
