I loved him! He was engaging straight away and made me feel like I was his only patient. I felt he listened and wasn’t ready with pen and pad in hand to prescribe unnecessary medication.

I came to Dr. Shah after enduring a rapid heartbeat onset for the last 40 years. HE was very courteous and actually listened to what I was dealing with. He had me take 3 tests to make sure there were no other issues with my heat. After these tests he knew exactly what my problem was and thru medication I am now having and avenue to deal with this issue. HIs office was very courteous at all times. There were no long waits on my appointments. I would definitely recommend Dr. Shah to all my friends
