Excellent, very knowledgeable physician.! Very happy that such a well trained specialist is available locally in the Lehigh Valley. Relieved I don’t have to travel regularly to Philadelphia for specialist care.

Dr. Shah is excellent. He took time to explain everything and answered all of my questions. My husband has dementia and Dr. Shah was very good at checking his eye problems. He was very kind and explained everything to me so I could understand all the options. I highly recommend him.

I couldn’t be happier with Dr. Shah and the services provided to me by him and his team. The outcome of my procedures were better than I could have ever expected. I felt he was very knowledgeable, courteous and patient, which made it a relaxed and friendly atmosphere at both locations (Bethlehem and Allentown).

march of last year had my cataract procedure done by Dr Shah. I was a little scared, but went full force with the prep and the day came and I went in for procedure and 15 minutes later I was done. I could actually see at that moment even through the clear eye cover. Second eye ......same as the first. Dr Shah is more than a Doctor, he is really nice and understands older peoples needs of understanding.

I was referred to Dr Shah who specializes in my type of issues. He was thorough and forthcoming with information which could have been perceived as very technical but simplified it. He made me feel comfortable. Building confidence is important so you trust your Doctors’ advise.
