Dr. Shah and his staff are very friendly and caring. They called to check on me and on how I was feeling after receiving my new medications. I appreciate that they truly care.

The SHAH EXPERIENCE: I've worked in the medical field 8yrs. The experience is MUCH different when I walk into an office as a patient. Its amazing how clothing can change a persons perspective when they meet you. I look very different outside of work. However, because of my profession & experience in the field despite the fact that I'm wearing normal every day clothes, my mind thinks like a medical professional & I pay close attention to how I am treated. (To be continued)

I like Dr. Shah. He is professional, informative and a good listener. All my expectations were met in a caring and timely manner. After losing my doctor to retirement I was not looking forward to getting a new doctor but I am very satisfied and glad I have him as my new doctor.

Three years ago, Dr. Shah agreed to accept my 90+ year old parents into his practice after their previous physician retired. He has treated my parents wonderfully and with sound medical advice. When he is uncertain about whether they understand an instruction, he will give me a call. Likewise, when I have questions, he will always return my call. Both my parents and I feel very secure and comfortable with Dr. Shah's care. I would recommend him unconditionally.

My family recently moved to the Watervliet area and were searching for a Doctor for my 7 year old daughter. We selected Dr. Shah because he was in close proximity to our home. This was the best decision we could've made! He was so great with our daughter and very personable, which is becoming more and more medical professional. He was also very knowledgeable regarding her allergy to all nuts and addressed all questions and concerns we had. Highly recommend!
