Dr. Shah quite literally saved my life. When I was 15 years old, I was in a terrible car accident. He was my trauma surgeon to remove my spleen, gallbladder and 3/4 of my pancreas. His bedside manner and follow up was incredible. 16 years later, I am still forever grateful to him and the rest of the team at LV Hospital.

Dr. Shah and his colleague Dr. Dutton performed emergency surgery on a ruptured bowel when I was in the area in Sept 2016. The collegiality of the group and their dedication to excellent patient care stood out for me. I am grateful for their help and highly recommend them for surgical needs.

Dr. Shah is the most wonderful physician I've ever known. I needed to undergo several surgeries over a period of 6 or 7 years, and during that time I'm certain I received the best surgical care available anywhere. Dr. Shah is not only a skilled and talented surgeon, he's also warm, kind, sincere, and compassionate. And Phyllis, his office assistant, is terrific, too. I truly love this man for his kindness and care.
