Dr Shah is great. He is on time & takes time to explain treatment plan. Would definitely recommend him to.
Conroe, TX |
A waste of time and money. Dr. Shah was rude, short with answers and had no personality or compassion. All about the money, this office was too busy to care. I left frustrated.
Spring, TX |
I can't say I was impressed. Office was chaotic, they lost my appointment, nurse was extremely cold and rude and while I'm sure Dr. Shah was probably competent he didn't inspire any great trust. Even though I needed the surgery right away to repair my crushed wrist...I went elsewhere

WE love Dr Shah!!! I had shoulder surgery with him. He also took care of my husband, 2 daughters, and our son. He is amazing!!!!!!!!! Totally recommend him to anyone!!!

I have been seeing Dr. Shah since 2005. He is an excellent hand surgeon. One of the best I have ever had. He explains all your options for treatment, answers all your questions, and makes you feel that you are part of the final decision. He has one of the most efficient offices I have seen.
in Spring, TX |
My experience with Dr. Shah was outstanding. He is an excellent orthopedic physician who has not only treated me, but my family and close friends as well. His staff is very knowledgeable and compassionate. I highly recommended Dr. Shah for any orthopedic problems and procedures.

Dr. Shah has been treating me and my family for 11 yrs! I always have a wonderful experience with him and his staff and will continue to see him for all of my orthopedic needs.

I went to see Dr. Shah for a broken wrist. I was throughly surprised at how easy everything was. His staff was great and efficient too. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!
in Houston, TX |
I went to Dr shah for a second opinion he was very open and honest (wish I'd seen him first and wouldn't have needed a second opinion) he spoke in terms i could. Relate to . If you want a upfront and honest doctor he is the man.

Dr.Shah was great! He has seen me several times and performed surgery on my elbow. He truly cares about his patients. The work he performs is top notch. Dr.Shah's staff are some of the best in my opinion. I had a problem with my cast rubbing on the incision and they told me to come in right away, changed the cast and made sure I was very comfortable before I left. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a great surgeon. Robert

My 14-yr-old son suffered a broken wrist while playing sports. Dr. Shah was very thorough in explaining the injury and the possible remedies, answering all questions, and taking plenty of time in putting my son at ease, as he (my son) was very nervous before procedures. We never had to wait an unreasonable amount of time, which was a welcome surprise.
in Spring, TX |
Dr. Shah was recommended by both a co-worker and my neighbor who spoke really highly of him. I'm so glad I saw him! He is friendly and professional and didn't push surgery. I like that he offered many non-surgical options. His assistants are super nice and efficient. Thank you Dr. Shah!
in Spring, TX |
Dr. Shah is one of the most helpful doctors I've ever seen. I visited his office for a sprained ankle. The wait time wasn't long at all, the staff was all friendly, and he was able to diagnose the problem within one visit. I was given a treatment plan that definitely helped, and he was more than happy to thoroughly explain everything and answer any questions that I had. Overall, I would definitely recommend visiting Dr. Shah and my ankle is completely healed.
in Spring, TX |
Horrible. He spent maybe 15 seconds with me after I waited 45 minutes in the waiting room. I was one of probably 50 patient he had scheduled that afternoon and I think he was more interested in getting patients in and out than he was in actually examining them and discussing care. Of course, he thought I needed surgery. There was no discussion of any non-operative management. I left and went somewhere else. All he wants is to operate. You are money to him, that's all.
in Spring, TX |
Dr Shah and his office staff are great! He's really knowledgeable, professional and easy to talk to. The staff is super nice too. Sam was great. I was seen quickly compared to other doctor's offices that I've been to. Overall, great experience. I recommend him to all my friends.
in Spring, TX |
Dr. Shah has been awesome! Me and my family have been seeing him for years and have found him to be thorough, knowledgeable, and courteous. He is great with children's problems too. I have recommended him to all of our family friends because we trust him. It is sometimes hard to find a doctor that recommends surgery only when you really need it, but he does just that. No reservations about this doctor!
in Montgomery, TX |
I highly recommend Dr. Shah??!!! It has been nearly six months since he performed Carpal tunnel surgery on both of my hands . I?m pain free in both , no more numbness or pain . He is very professional courteous and to the point . His staff is friendly and makes you at ease during the appointment. He is exceptional with kids as well , my 12 year old broke her wrist playing softball. Dr. Shah did a great job on getting her healed and back on the field again. He is excellent. Gary Snead

I felt Dr. Shah and his staff was attentive and professional. Yes, he is a bit more expensive than probably most, however he is very knowledgeable and he addresses all of your concerns in a professional manner. He does not delay surgery and he is always the doctor that you will see not anyone else in the office (from my experience). My paperwork was always filled out on time for my job and the staff always called to check up on me to see how I was feeling after surgery (and not just once).
