I've had two annual visits and each time, I'm impressed with her medical knowledge and interpersonal skills. My ongoing prescription needs are handled easily and changes are make quickly as needed. I've seen 7-8 dermatologists over the years. She's in the top tier!

Dr.Shah possibly saved my daughters life. After seeing several doctors about a mole/tumor I took her to see Dr.Shah. I had a feeling it could of been something serious since my daughter was immediately scheduled for surgery, but Shah never said or did anything to startle us. Just a few days after removing the tumor we were told it was Melanoma. Since then Dr.Shah has seen my daughter every 6 months to a year and When we have concerns. She provides love & urgency to all of her patients.

Not a good experience in any way. Receptionist was rude, doctor Shah was abrupt and brisk, not willing to clarify when asked questions. I was simply told id get paperwork to explain everything.
