Care Philosophy

Every patient and every cancer is unique. I take pride in getting to know each patient individually and tailoring the treatment plan to their specific desires and needs. Cancer is always a devastating diagnosis. It can be hard to find a caring doctor who explains the diagnosis in words that patients can understand and who knows how to carry out difficult surgical procedures with confidence. I take great pride in being that kind of doctor for my patients.

Dr. Shah is the most gifted man I have ever met. He took care of and preformed a very complex surgery on my husband with no complications. He explains things and takes the time to make sure you understand so you can feel confidant and involved. He is available, smart, extremely skilled surgically, but he is also compassionate, caring. We spent several months in his care and are very grateful. Cancer is scary but when you know your in capable hands it takes fear away. Outstanding in every way!

Dr. Shah treated my husband for bladder cancer and did surgery on him in 2010 . He did an excellent job. He has a great bedside manner. He takes time to talk with you. I would recommend Dr. Shah very highly.
