Dr. Shah walked me through my carpal tunnel diagnosis and spent ample time with me throughout the year as I worked on non-surgical methods to ease nerve pressure. Ultimately, I needed to go through with the release surgery. Dr. Shah was sure I felt confident going into the surgery, and talked me through what my recovery would look like. He is an excellent physician and I highly recommend him.

Dr. Shah was excellent. I saw him twice concerning a wrist problem after an injury. Over the past decade I had been to Northwestern twice, with different doctors, and had not been that pleased. I decided to give NW one more chance. This time I saw Dr. Shah and he listened well, explained everything clearly, asked if I had any questions, responded clearly to everything I asked, and was very friendly. Plus, both times he treated his interns well as colleagues which I respect. Love this guy.

Dr. Shah could not have gotten me out of the room faster shook his leg the entire time and spoke like a cattle auctioneer. Dr. Shah condescending, did not allow me to ask questions, did not explain potential causes of the issue, nor would he elaborate except when prodded. He referred me to get a test done and then got snappy with me when I asked about details of the test (like what exactly they were looking for). The bedside manner of this man needs improvement. I was in and out in only 7 mins..
