Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shah "My approach is simple. I take the time to educate patient's of the conditions that they have and I give them alternatives to take decisions. The conditions that I treat are very serious and can be very concerning for my patients. These decisions are very important as they affect many aspects of their lives. So an informed patient will always be better able to make best decisions for themselves."
