What People Say About Dr. Saurabh Shah, MD
It was an honor to meet Dr, Shah and his staff, especially his nurse Debby. He was very personable while being professional and thorough, explaining every detail in lay people terms. Am very pleased that I was given something to do to ease the problem rather than getting a prescription!
