He's an excellent doctor! I've been going to him for a few years now off and on due to my back issues and he is always so calm, patient, and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend him to others. It is so hard to find a doctor that actually cares!!

Such a caring educated professional doctor! You can’t teach the level of compassion he has for his patients. Dr. Shah is a Patient advocate at heart. Goes above and beyond! As a well check he called me during his time off just to help me through a crisis. No words to describe the level of appreciation I have for him. Dr. Shah, I was in tuned and hyper aware of the extra level of care you gave ... and give me. Thank you!!!

I was skeptical about all the great reviews online, but after meeting him twice in his office for an initial and follow-up appointment, I am a true believer now. He has absolutely lived up to his reputation and professionalism. I feel so fortunate and grateful to have be seen by Dr. Shah. I am going to recommend Dr. Shah to all my family and friends from now on. He is everything what a compassionate and knowledgeable doctor suppose to stand for and believe in. Thank you very much!

Dr. Shah is compassionate, brilliant, and so friendly and warm. He is helping me get my life back, and I couldn't be more grateful. I would recommend him highly to anyone seeking a super smart neurologist who won't rush you, and who really, really cares.

After consulting many doctors regarding my complicated injury, I was very pessimistic about finding someone who could understand my injury and communicate well with me about how to deal with it. When Dr. Shah entered the room, I knew immediately I was with a rare kind of doctor. He was respectful, validating, understanding, a great listener, and gave me numerous recommendations covering all aspects of dealing with my injury with a supportive, nurturing, and positive attitude. I am so grateful!

I took my father to Dr. Shah following a stroke and memory loss. Dr. Shah has incredible bedside manner, shows genuine concern for his patients and is very accessible. He responds quickly to emails and phone calls and takes his time to answer all of our questions. We feel very lucky to have found a physician like him and look forward to seeing our dad recover under his care.

He was friendly. Made you feel comfortable and was completely aware of your problems and knew how to treat them. Also, he answered all questions no matter how big or small or how many times you asked them.
