Dr Shah is a wonderful doctor. When I was in an emergency situation he was able to calmly talk to my family about the overall best solution for me as a total being, not just as a kidney patient. Following a liver transplant, he has been able to manage my S4 kidney disease and my kidneys are now back to healthy and functioning. He is caring, interested in about me and family not just me as a patient. I would recommend him 100% without hesitation.
