I would recommend Dr. Shah to anyone needing an opthomologist. She is fabulous. Not only is she brilliant and knows how to diagnose good, but she genuinely cares about all her patients. The problems I'd been having weren't even her specialty, yet she knew what to do and how to fix it. Dr. Shah and her staff are such an asset to the Joplin medical community.

Wonderful physician, wonderful staff. Dr. Shah diagnosed cataract problems I was unaware of. Surgeries went very well with her excellent OR staff. So congenial and efficient. I wear hearing aids but still don't hear well and often important information inadvertently gets past me. My initial complaint to Dr. Shah was a problem with my right eye. That remains unresolved. I assumed she would do retinal pucker surgery. As a 24/7 caregiver for my Alzheimer sick wife, K. C. Clinic is not an option.
