What People Say About Dr. Shamita Shah, MD
Reply
I saw Dr. Shah at Stanford some years back and always found her to be highly effective and very knowledgeable. While not my first gastro, Dr. Shah finally got me to understand the adverse effects of NSAIDs on the condition and that single change probably made the most significant difference in improving my health. Anyone would be well served to speak with Dr. Shah about IBD issues.
