DO NOT go here if you have any kind of state aid and NEED surgery, they won't schedule you bc your insurance doesn't pay enough even if you need surgery.. after waiting 2months for a surgical date they said they'd give me (they do take the ins, so does the facility), they said no bc they can't make enough money off of me and I need this surgery to live my life and help take my pain away, and take malfunctioning hardware out of my body at 30yo, but these heartless people could careless. I've had nothing but problems since I stepped foot in their facility and it hasn't stopped yet.... None of their staff listen to anything you have to say when it pertains to your case and how you need to proceed; not the dr, not the scheduler, and god forbid any of the staff actually know they have a manager on staff or know how to contact them or even forward any problems to that person so that unhappy patients can potentially be helped before it's too late..

I can’t speak highly enough about Dr. Shah’s expertise, professionalism, and most of all the way he truly cares about his patients. We have one of the best neurosurgeons right here in Genesee county and that is Dr. Shah!

I had the worst experience at the hospital when my face and left side of my body went numb and weak. Being young no one believed me that there was an actual issue. I was dismissed until Dr. Shah was consulted and ordered a bunch of tests to find the culprit. If it wasn’t for him I highly doubt they would have figured out what was wrong with me.

I found out that I have a disc herniation in my mid back. Dr. Shah recommended a basic treatment plan to help me get better. After manipulative therapy, physical therapy, and postural correction, I am longer experiencing tingling in my feet and pain in my back. Dr. Shah is honest and has a great bedside manner

I would highly recommend Dr. Shah and his entire staff for any type of back surgery. Nina is the office manager is always on top of her game she is caring and you can tell that she is a good person at heart. After surgery i had 24/7 phone number for follow up to make sure everything is okay before and after the surgery. Dr. Shah listens to your concerns and makes recommendations for your full recovery but most of all makes you feel confident on your decision of treatment. Thank you Dr. Shah

Dr. Shah is an AMAZING surgeon!! He always goes above and beyond for his patients and really listens to what you have to say. He performed my back surgery 2 years ago and did an amazing job! I have started having pain again and he recommended a spinal cord stimulator. I did the trial one and it worked amazing. I am now going for the permanent one and am so excited! This stimulator is and will be life changing for me. I have the utmost respect for this man and what he does for his patients.
