've been a patient of Dr. Shah since 2016. He is wonderful. Super smart, very thorough, explains everything so I understand. Very nice way about him. I wouldn't go to anyone else. My last visit was 6/12/20.

Dr Shah is an excellent specialist GI Doctor. I have Crohn's disease. I've had 2 colonoscopies performed by Dr Shah (1 requiring specially traianed skills to remove bigger sizes polyp and 1 regular for followup) the past 12 months. Both times my experience were very pleasant. Dr Shah listens and explains the procedures in detail. I highly recommend him and would not hesitate to use his service again.

Dr. Shah is an outstanding physician. He put me at ease with his kindness, patience and clear communication. I was impressed with the fact that Dr. Shah uses a new type of endoscope attachment for colonoscopies that most GI doctors do not use. It enables a reverse camera view as the endoscope is being withdrawn, providing him additional precision. Dr. Shah also communicates directly with his patients through an on-line portal to answer his patients' questions and concerns, and he responds quickly. I feel fortunate to have such a well qualified, competent, high energy, and friendly doctor who uses up to date technology.

I have been seeing Dr. Shah since my first colonoscopy in 2016. Having a high genetic risk for colorectal cancer and G.I. cancers due to Lynch Syndrome I need to be screened every 12 months. Dr. Shah has been trained in regards to LS and the polyps that hide in the wall of a colon. He is very thorough and has assured me he found every polyp possible to see by his expert eye... and removed them for lab testing. His education and training are more then impressive.... I like the fact he’s recently (in the last 10 years) been educated and trained in the newest medical procedures and technology not to mention my genetic mutation. His demeanor makes having a colonoscopy annually a much better experience!

This review in fairness has nothing to do with the doctors, but with the medical group itself. I had previously seen a doctor at this office that is no longer there. I looked at the other doctors' specialties and decided that Dr. Shah was the best option for my symptoms. Unfortunately, this medical group will not let you pick your own doctor!! You must see the doctor who took over for your previous doctor. I have never heard of this before and I'm shocked that a medical group would rather lose patients than allow us to decide who we want to see. I'm off to look for another medical group who allows patients the freedom to choose their own doctors!
