Patient Comments (15)
Berthoud, CO |
Went in for appointment, spent a very short time with him, even though I have had multiple orthopedic operations. He was very disinterested in my condition and the only solution in this office seem to be surgery. I was unimpressed with his manner and concern with me and would not return. There are so many great orthopedic surgeons on the front range, I think we all deserve one who will actually listen to the patient and isn't so full of them self.

My 12 year old dislocated (reset in the ER) and broke his elbow, requiring surgery to set a screw. Dr Shah was very accommodating and adjusted his surgery schedule to include my son the next day.

Dr Shaw is personable, knowledgeable and efficient. It is apparent that his chosen vocation of being a physician is also his avocation. Dr Shaw enjoys helping people get healthy. I liked the fact that he gave me time and opportunity to ask my questions and was very precise with his answers. I left his office informed not confused. Believing in your medical provider is a huge component of healing and with Dr Shaw I had total belief and confidence that he was resolving my health issues.

Dr. Shah was recommended to us by friends who were so impressed by not only his professional knowledge and expertise as an orthopedic surgeon, but also his great patient rapport. My husband has seen him for shoulder and back problems. He recently performed a total knee replacement for me. He is forthright and thorough in his diagnosis and the explanation of it; the pros and cons of procedures; and likely outcomes. He is very personable and exhibits care and concern for the individual.

I have had to successful. Carpal Tunnel surgerys with Dr Shaw, he said he could help me and he did! I also had a shoulder surgery ans he went and did more than I expected and it was more successful to fix so many problems I had in my shoulder. His nurses were so helpful in the surgery room and in his office I just loved his professional but kind approach. I trust what he says and how he had to do it, he went way beyond my expections and I think I will heal and get my life back! Thanks Dr. Shaw

Three years ago this Jan. Dr. Shah replaced my left hip. The moment I awoke I knew I felt better. The follow up care was beyond what I expected. he always talked so my daughter and I could understand. I did as I was told and have not to this day been disappointed. Check his record to see how many patients I have referred to him. In fact just today I revered another patient to him. Dec. of this year I had foot problems with my right foot. Once again I FEEL GREAT. his office staff is GREAT.

During my first visit with Dr. Shah, he took a sincere interest in what I was telling him. He listened closely to everything I said. He immediately suggested what should be done. He explained everything in detail and always made sure I agreed with anything to be done. He answered all my questions and eased any fears I had. He made me feel that he cared. Dr. Shah is gentle and comforting. He always makes me feel my condition is important to him. I'm glad he is my physician.
