Dr. Shah helped me with my snoring that would wake me and sometimes everyone in the house. He also diagnosed restless legs where my feet and legs would ache as soon as I laid down. Now I have Minimal aches and no snoring and feel well rested. I admire him for not just throwing meds around he keeps everything well monitored so I am on the least doses and still get good results. The office in Suffolk is fast and friendly and quiet.

My experience with Dr. Shah has been a positive one each of the three times I've seen him for sleep apnea. He's very thorough and explains things very clearly. It took a few different masks types until we found the one that works the best. I highly recommend him! I can finally sleep through the night feeling refreshed the next morning.

Dr Shah changed my LIFE! Twice in 2018 I was in Sentara for COPD Exacerbation, one time for a week! My GP MD referred me to Dr Shah he said I had Stage 4 COPD. He prescribed Daliresp not an easy drug to get used to, but really worth the results, all of a sudden my lungs were clear!. Next he sent me to Pulmonary Rehab(an exercise class) he said a weak body takes more oxygen to move, boy was he right! it took 6/8 classes before I could feel a difference, after 36 classes and 25lb loss I feel GREAT

Dr. Shah is very thorough each time I visit, I have never left his office having a question, very easy to talk to. His staff (specifically his nurse) is very kind and courteous. I was quite nervous going to a new doctor but they made me feel at ease right away.

Dr. Shah was very helpful. I didn't fit in to the "usual" patient but he didn't rush me, said we could try the test again in 6 months and when I got the same results he counseled me wisely. I now use a cpap and this has made a wonderful change in my life.

The support staff from signing in to lab technicians were courteous, professional and efficient. Dr Shaw was prepared in reviewing my history and works hard to establish and continue a good working relationship with the patient, listening to my concerns and responding to my questions. I certainly would recommend Dr. Shaw to my friends.

The first time I saw Dr Shah was when I went in with my adult son seeking a second opinion regarding narcolepsy. I was impressed that he ordered all new test. He was very concerned about my son's condition and was very professional. Then when I needed to be seen for sleep apnea he was still very professional, he seems to remember you from one visit to the next, I really don't know if he did but he acted like he did. So as a result I would recommend him to my friends and family.

When meeting with Dr. Shah, he is very personable and explained what I should expect from my treatment if I did as he instructed. His diagnosis was right on point. I have more energy during the day and I am able to get good nights rest because of his concern for my well being. I will recommend him and his office to anyone. A good doctor and a friendly staff are hard to find these days and I am glad I was referred to his office.
