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.
