Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

thorough and by the book but i feel that she does not see the whole picture and lacks some experience. She tried several medications on me without success so I looked for a second opinion at a non IBD specialist who treated me successfully on the first try

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.
