Dr Shah & his assistant are amazing! They get five stars! The front office is horrible! If I could give 0 stars, I would.

Dr. Shah did my left hip replacement and did and amazing job. He explains everything thoroughly and understandably, and he is very kind. He came to see me in the hospital after my surgery even though another doctor could have very well done so and he himself was going through a family emergency. My hip is 100% now. I dislocated it four times (yes!) by being mindless, but it has been almost a year since I've done that. He never belittled me for the dislocations but assured me I would get stronger

If you're going to spend $100,000+ on hip surgery, you have to have confidence in the organizaion. Orthopedic Surgery West Hills CA and Center for Orthopedic Specialists - Westlake are run like sales organization. With the main purpose of getting a pipeline of as many folks as possible in the stuffy waiting room and have the receptionists apologize like crazy that the doctor's are running so late. Imagine what the surgery would be like. Go to Ceders or UCLA. This is bush league.

A prime example of why doctors are not trusted. He has a fragile ego. Great energy and displays confidence but I would expect the person calling himself expert to be able to diagnose bone spurs! I had to stand over him to get him to even take the time to look at my x-ray. in the center island of 5 room my privacy was violated. He rec bilateral Hip replacement and refused to do it because of my age. Claiming severe arthritis of Acetabular Socket. Bone Spurs growing into Rectus Femorus Useless!!!
in Calabasas, CA |
I've had both my knees replaced by Dr. Shah. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Shah, he is the absolute best and I would highly recommend him!
in Los angeles |
My first hip was replaced 15 years ago by another Doctor. They told me eventually I would need the other replaced. That day came -I was assigned a physician through my insurance. Dr Shah was amazing! I was skeptical because he is young-but the most excellent surgeon I have encountered. I had the quickest recovery-No Pain at All! I'm soon to play tennis in two more months! He's a very nice person as well great bedside manner !!!
