    Dr Shah truly cares....he's got a good bedside manner. Sometimes takes a little to understand that but once you do you will not go anywhere else. Hard to find a Dr who cares. Now I need to listen too all of his recommendations to get even better ?? I'm glad I found him and followed him since then...
