Dr. Shah really took the time to explain my options and then explained the surgical procedure once I made my decision. I was very happy with the outcome of my procedure and would highly recommend him and his staff to friends and family.
in Oak Lawn, IL |
Dr. Shah has great skills very efficient and so intelligent. Had a rotator cuff surgery and a meniscus bucket tear both extremely successful considering my age and health issues. He surrounds the experience with all the phone numbers and information that you may need for immediate help from his staff.

Dr Shah spends ample time with me to explain what is going on with my shoulder, my options and answers all of my questions in a way that i can understand.
in Mokena, IL |
All of our teenagers have been to him for for sports injuries - knees, shoulders, and ankles. Some needed surgery others didn't. They all recovered and back to playing. He is trustworthy and if surgery is needed he has excellent skill.
in New Lenox, IL |
Dr. Shah was very concerned for my overall health not just my response to the orthopedic surgery. He is very friendly and explains everything so you understand not only your short term care but also what you can expect long term
in Chicago, IL |
I would definitely recommend Dr. Shah. He is friendly and approachable. I had minimal pain with the surgery.
Palos Park, IL |
Immediately upon arrival, I was sent for x-rays. Once back at the office, I was called in immediately and a nurse took my history. 5 to 10 minutes later, Dr. Shah arrived, and his personality is such that you feel at ease. He explained what he was doing throughout the exam, and then took the time to illustrate what he believed to be the issue with my knee. He informed me of the different possible diagnoses (dependent upon an MRI) and treatments, and he did not rush through the exam.
in Palos Heights IL |
Dr Shah is a wonderful md, he makes you feel comfortable and explains himself throughly!
in Homer Glen, IL |
Dr. Shah has wonderful "bedside" manners. In addition, you are never rushed during your appointment and he takes his time answering all questions as well as explaining what the situation is. I highly recommend Dr. Shah for your knee, shoulder or elbow orthopedic needs.
in Chicago |
Extremely thorough and explained all the options, and recommendations along the way. I felt like a partner in my own health analyst. Spoke in medical terms I could understand. Great VISIT!!
Great bedside manner and very informative
in Oak Lawn, IL |
Dr. Shah was great. Surgery was not bad and recovery was smooth.
Dr.shah was by far the best surgeon I've ever had. Thanks for the great care
in Hinsdale, IL |
excellent bed side manner. pleasant demeanor always and an excellent surgeon for my family's shoulder and knee problems
in Fitchburg, WI |
Dr, Shah has performed both of my knee reconstructions (same knee). He is extremely knowledgeable and helps patient through the graft decision making process, planning for pre and post surgery, and is able to answer ANY questions you may have regarding your operation. Knee surgery is also a 2-way street IMO, and a patient should come prepared to appointments with questions to help your surgeon make determinations for course of treatment and best possible outcomes.
