in Watervliet, MI |
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.
in Manistee, MI |
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!
