Getting told I had cancer (multiple myeloma) was a hard pill to swallow. I was so scared. Dr. Shah's bedside manner and compassion towards me have helped me deal with this horrible disease and now I'm in remission. I've recommended several people I know to see him too.

I've been meaning to write a review for Dr. Shah. I'm very thankful to have him practicing in my community. Having Stage 3 colon cancer was one of the toughest things I've had to deal with and now I've been cancer free for two years due to his care (after undergoing Chemo).

I am cancer free because of Dr. Shah, and I can't be more thankful. I had colon cancer and was devastated to here of my prognosis from another oncologist, but when I saw Dr. Shah, he was able to provide me hope and now I am cancer free.

Last month, I saw another oncologist in the area who told me that I had 3 months to live. Needless to say, I was in tears through the whole night and needed a second opinion asap. Dr. Shah fit me into his schedule the next day, looked over my records thoroughly and told me that there was hope in my case. I had longer than 3 months...maybe even a year+! He new about the latest medications that were on the market and trials. I feel confident in Dr. Shah's ability as a physician treating me.

Horrible, rude, never returns pages. Does not take the time, but wants the money. Beside manner needs improvement. I would never recommend him to treat a dog.

We saw Dr Shah for the first time last week and he was amazing. He spent over 30 minutes going thru out family history and coming up with a game plan. My wife and I felt very comfortable with not only his approach but his in depth knowledge. I would highly recommend him.
