Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shah "I specialize in nasal problems such as sinus disease and have given local and national lectures on the topic. I perform balloon sinuplasty, a safe and effective procedure for sinus sufferers that can eliminate the need for medicines and surgery. I believe in putting the patient first. When I care for E.N.T. issues, I try to utilize natural methodologies first when appropriate."
