Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shah "Helping people is her passion, she looks at your entire life health history as interconnected like a web, everything is clue to your present state of health and illness. With each patient that she sees. she seeks to find common link, root cause of illness, and not simply treat the symptoms. She believes in engaging both patient and herself in a therapeutic partnership. By shifting the traditional disease centered focus of medical practice to a more patient centered approach, and addressing whole person and not just an isolated set of symptoms. She spends time with her patients, listening to their story and looking at genetics, environment and, lifestyle factors and their influence in the long-term health and complex chronic disease. She believes in looking at the person who happened to have illness rather than what illness that person has."
