Awesome doctor
in Methuen, MA |
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.

So far so good... Dr. Shah , is so patient , kind and professional. As a ENT Doctor one of the best around. Come out of surgery perfectly fine, with little to no pain and everything is going great . Would recommend to anyone and everyone. Thank you very much Dr. Shah for all you do.

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!
