Dr. Shah was always nice and thorough, made me feel at ease. After having several bad times when th stress tests at other places, I dreaded having one there. He did the test himself and It was over before I even knew it had started. It was great!

My mother went to him today and he didn't even examine her. Even her telling him that she had shortness of breath and her feet swollen . She sent her home saying that he will check her in a week for a clot. That she was probably depressed. My mom was admitted to the hospital Houston northwest with her lungs full of fluids because of her heart. Please take this guy out of the medicine field.

Dr. Shah was assigned to my husband in 2012 when he was admitted to St Lukes Vintage. We immediately felt Dr Shah truly cared about my husband and the situation. He assured us with his knowledge and excellent bedside manner. He spent all the time we needed with us, we never felt rushed. He became my husbands physician permanently after this ...Unfortunately my husband's health declined, but Dr Shah was with us every step of the way. And ultimately we were transferred to Mem Hermann Med Center

Dr. is very professional with time to explain, discuss and answer all my questions and concerns. I feel very comfortable having Dr. Shah watching over my heart.
