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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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).
