Dr. Shah has skill that is second to none. I had a detached retina and feared I would be blind in one eye. The surgery went perfectly, and each time I follow up with Dr. Shah, he is caring and extremely positive. Still have a way to go with my healing, but know I'm in good hands. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Shah and the Retina Institute of St. Louis MO, to anyone needing his field of expertise. Dr. Shah's staff is professional and helpful, too. Thank you Dr. Shah!

Dr. Shah is a very skilled physician. His personality is very positive and friendly. Dr. Shah is confronted with people who are depressed about losing their sight, yet he remains very positive and has helped me restore my sight. He practices the latest advances in treating people with macular degeneration. He is the perfect combination of skill and upbeat personality that makes him an outstanding physician and surgeon.
