Dr Shah is amazing! All I can say is he was my 5th ENT, years of not breathing out of my nose. I was told be every other ent it's was allergies here's another nasal spray. In 5 minutes saw the deviated septum and he looked at my ct and mri then we booked my surgery! Everything went well and he even personally called later that evening to see how I was doing! He is clear and listens to what's going on, highly recommend ??

Dr. SHAH is personable and professional. He explains his findings and why he made his course of care decisions to you. I feel that he is trustworthy which is a quality I look for in a surgeon. I feel completely comfortable with his conclusions and am happy to have found him to be the doctor I need to address my ENT needs.

I went to see Dr. Shah because I had an itching sensation in both of my ears. He pulled a piece of wax out of one ear and wrote me 2 prescriptions to apply to my ears over a 3 week period. Neither prescription helped. Now I receive a bill of $275 for the 15 minute consult and an additional charge of $240 for pulling out a small piece of wax in a matter of seconds. This is highway robbery and I would not recommend going here. I was not impressed even before I got the bill.

I have been seeing Dr Shah for over a year for different issues and he is one of the best doctors I have ever seen! He performed my right lobe thyroid removal surgery and he was informative and also has an amazing bedside manner. I recommend Dr Shah to anyone that is in search for a local ENT doctor!
