I have glacouma however I saw Dr. Shah for a comprehensive review of multiple problems. She was very well versed multiple complications of my eye I felt that I had one of the best overall discussions on how the issues I have all work together or in my case all may complicate my problems if not watched carefully. I completely trusted her knowledge and appreciated the time she took to explain some very detailed diagnoses in terms that I understood. Well done, she even returned a phone promptly!

I had a partially detached retina - although I have visited this medical group I had never seen Dr. Shah. She was clear in communicating to me the problem, the solution and my follow up care. I felt very comfortable in her hands. Most of all she did an excellent Jon in repairing my retina and restoring my vision. I also greatly appreciated that she had no problem answering my questions, sharing her medical training with me and assuring me that this would be a common and successful proceedure.

An excellent physician. I have nodular uveitis. My previous ophthalmologist tried treating it without any substantial outcome, so I switched physicians. Dr. Shah started me with high dose of steroids which she tapered as she started Methotrexate. Result: Uveitis is substantially subdued, my energy level is back to normal from being zero. Its like getting a new lease on life. Thank you so much Dr. Shah. You are a miracle worker.

She is one of the most knowledgable and compassionate doctors I have ever met. She was so kind and helpful to me, answering all of my questions. I had a vision threatening retnal detachment and lost sight in that eye. Dr. Shah was so calming and confident and explained everything to me regarding my surgery and prognosis. She did my surgery and everything she told me would happen came true. Thank you Dr. Shah for giving me my sight back!
