With the exception of skill, being trust worthy is at the top of the list. Dr. Shah presents as friendly and engaging however never lose site he's working for the insurance (NJM). When the prescribed care of a patient is dictated by insurance and not medical outcomes based on evidence. Skill means nothing. I say with certainty this clinician will leave a bad taste in your mouth. Bring a court appointed surrogate to every office visit/ audio-video record every word that comes out of his mouth. Then and only then you might have have a 50/50 chance.

Dr.Shah is a truly great doctor including the nurses and reception workers. Dr.Shah operated on ny neck in 2015 installing 6 screws and plate to very displaced neck and since have been great, gave me my life back. I just needed another surgery for my lower L3,L4,L5 and has again taken away the pain!!! Dr.Shah is when you meet him is like your best friend! Great manners and professional but great amazing doctor!!!!!!

I am really thankful and grateful to have Dr. Shah and Dr. Joseffer perform my surgery. They changed my life and I feel awesome. Their professionalism and practice really speaks volume. I am so satisfied words cannot explain how I feel. They made my surgery seamless and through my entire recuperation. A big kudos to both of them.

Diagnosed with herniated disk L4, L5 was referred to Princeton Brain & Spine by Bill Scott. Dr. Shah was able to schedule me for surgery quickly. 7 weeks after surgery I'm moving around and getting more mobility back in my left foot, thanks to Dr. Shah. Couldn't be more happier with the results. Another 6 weeks of PT I will be back to normal routine. Can't thank Dr. Shah and the Princeton Brain & Spine Center.

Dr. Shah and his staff are wonderful. Their professionalism and compassion are more than I expected. My surgery went well and they made sure everything that was going to happen and was always very helpful when I did have questions or paperwork that needed attention. I could not have made a better decision for my healthcare.

A family friend recommended Dr. Shah. I went to him after several years of dealing with numerous other doctors and chronic pain everyday. Dr. Shah, Toni and his staff were fabulous. He listens to your concerns and has a great bedside manner. He is personable and explains everything. He provided the information that I needed to make an informed decision. I never felt any pressure to have surgery or not. I am very happy that I had surgery. It has been well worth it. I highly recommend Dr. Shah and his team.

I had spinal fusion surgery with Dr. Shah. I could not sit, sleep, walk, go up stairs, stretch, bend, or do much of anything else. A coworker of mine was wearing a back brace and referred me to see him. I am so grateful I found him. He gave me my life back. He's a wonderful listener and takes time with his patients. I highly recommend him to anyone who is experiencing back pain.

Needs to take more time with patients and not make them wait astronomical amounts of time to only give you 2 minutes of his.

Dr. Shah took my spine injury and pain symptoms seriously. He wasn't judgemental and his kind and caring demeanor was always reassuring. He was attentive to my concerns and answered my questions. His experience and knowledge was a perfect match for the care I needed.

I was recently in a car accident and had significant trauma which included blurred vision and headache. I was not sure I would ever be able to think straight again. I was referred to Princeton Brain and Spine by a friend who told me this was the best group in all of New Jersey. After my appointment with Dr. Shah I felt so much more confident that things would go back to normal. He took his time with me and was very knowledgeable. Today was my follow up and I feel as though I am almost 100%.

Excellent surgery and results (although 5 months later I'm still healing). Dr Shah is not only a highly skilled surgeon, he's compassionate and caring.
