I had surgery done by Dr. Shah in March of this year. As soon as he walked into my hospital room I knew everything would be ok. He is more than a great surgeon. He communicates your medical situation in a very straight forward manner with an excellent bedside manner. I will always highly recommend him AND his staff. They are also amazing. Betsy Dunivin
