    in North Bergen, NJ |
    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.
