Dr Shah has been caring for my family members for a few years and recently I have also been a patient. His bedside manner, medical knowledge and ability to explain my condition, along with his honest concern for his patients is outstanding. My family and I trust him explicitly and highly recommend him. He listens to my concerns and addresses each one, provides options for care and never makes me feel as though he is rushing me out of the office to move on to his next patient. The office staff are all pleasant as well and they are responsive to phone calls and retuning calls when necessary.

I saw Dr Shah 2X via telemedicine during the COVID19 crisis. He was very thorough in his questions to me and in his answers when I had questions for him. Dr Shah is pleasant and explains things in a way that’s easy to understand.

Follow up visit to discuss and review CT scan for possible flare up of diverticulitis. CT scan ordered after dietary modifications did not relieve symptoms. Dr Shah's timely response and guidance avoided ER visit. I avoided exposure to other ER patients and ER costs. More importantly I avoided unnecessary antibiotics and anxiety associated with ER visit.

I've been seeing Dr. Shaw for over 10 years. He is a very experienced physician and endoscopist and has provided great preventative and acute care for myself and my family. He was my strong advocate recently in coordinating with UPenn for a major pancreatic surgery. I strongly recommend him.

I have been a patient of Dr Shah for 7+ years now. He listens to me, talks to me and is persistent in helping to get answers for my symptoms, in so doing finding out that I had a rare carcinoid tumor. I'm now cancer free 5yrs. If I call with concerns or new problems he'll see me and address it in a timely fashion. I would recommend him to any one looking to find a excellent Dr.

Dr Shah is just the best! I’ve been seeing him for 5 years. He actually reviews my record before my appointment to re-familarize himself with my history. Listens to my concerns. Tells me whether I should be concerned or can stop worrying. Explains what treatment he's proposing and why. Let’s me know of any symptoms I should watch for and what to do if they occur. Explains recommended procedures and why they’re necessary. Couldn’t be better

Dr. shah is a brilliant doctor with a great personality combined with a serious side. I was able to put my faith in him and allow him to take over during a time in which I was in severe distress over liver disease. Without this trust, I would not have made the dramatic improvement that I so desperately needed. He addressed all of my concerns with patience during every appointment. I'm usually skeptical of doctors but Dr. Shah came through for me in a big way. I'm very grateful to him.

Dr. Shah is kind, compassionate, caring as well as thorough. He found the lymphoma in my stomach and has followed up with my treatment over the years. He answers any and all my questions and calms me when I am worried. He has been a big positive for me and I am happy to say that I am cancer free for 5 years now. As far as I am concerned, he is the best!

Dr. Shah is a very gracious person with a wonderful sense of everything a doctor should be. I never feel rushed - he always greets me warmly and takes the time to walk me out. The kind checkout person managed to fit in my liver fibroscan the same day so i would not have to go back and miss more work. They are awesome!

Dr. Shah has been my doctor since October 2012. He has treated me for pancreatic and colon cancer. Besides being an excellent doctor he is a tremendously caring individual. I called the office because I was having a problem. Dr. Shah was on vacation so I booked an appointment with another doctor in the practice. Dr. Shah called me the next day, even though he was out of town on vacation, to make sure I was being taken care off.
