Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Great doctor who made sure I was put in a room when he knew he was running 45 minutes behind. It wasn’t rushed and I had time to calm. I was informed well of everything

Best GI I’ve ever met, and I have Crohn’s so I’ve seen my fair share of GIs. Dr. Shah is very knowledgeable and respectful.

NO RECOMMENDATION!!! -5 rating!!! Colonoscopy in 2017. Afterwards told me I had a hiatal hernia!! NO WAY would a Colonoscopy have shown that! However, when I called his office to check findings, I was told of other problems he found but NOTHING was ever sent to me in writing or as a report! I will NEVER use him again OR recommend him even to my worst enemy!!!

I saw Dr. Shah after I went to the ER and was admitted into the hospital with a UC/Crohn’s flare-up. He was the Gastro on call that evening and the following days. He was very rude on more than one occasion literally asking me “Have you Seen someone with Crohn’s?” Because of my weight, he blew off my 11 years with IBD. I weighed 200 pounds at the time. After he did my colonoscopy, that he threatened not to do if I didn’t drink all of the gallon of Go-LYTELY Prep because I couldn’t keep anything down, he saw first hand that I have Crohn’s disease. I left the Lewis-Gale Gastro team after this event and gave gained an additional 60 pounds on Stelara. We are not cookie cutters and medicines and illnesses affect us each differently. No patient should ever be shamed or threatened. You work for us doctors. Please think twice about how you treat patients.

Hospital consult with subsequent procedure. Exceptional provider bedside manner. Respectful to patients and their family. Not condescending or mocking of those with less education which I have unfortunately seen in other providers. Very pleased. Appreciate his service.

Dr Shah was wonderful! My husband made my appointment here since I needed a 2nd opinion and he found my issues right away after the first doctor told me nothing was wrong. I've recommended him to other friends and family many times.

Primary care doctors recommendation reason for making appointment, I could not have asked for better doctor from initial visit. He was VERY patient, knowledgeable, kind and compassionate!! It so happened that I required extra attention and as unsettling as it has been, he helped myself and husband through the process which is still ongoing. I can say without hesitation that the husband is next!. My husband trusts me to select the BEST of the best when it comes to OUR HEALTHCARE
