in Arlington, VA |
Competent with good patient skills... exam was efficient and she provided time to answer my question. Her suggestion for my follow up care was sensible and well reasoned.
in Falls Church, VA |
She is very professional, explains results of the exam and current condition (cataracts). She has an outstanding background)
Vienna, VA |
Dr Shah performed both Glaucoma and Cataract surgery on my eye. She is one of the most compassionate and talented Doctors I have ever dealt with. The care she took to explain the two procedures was extremely comforting and the results were excellent. I would encourage anyone needing glaucoma surgery take time to visit with her and experience her outstanding ability to explain the procedure and after care.

Dr Shah is great. I was referred to her quite recently by another very nice ophthalmologist Dr Marissa Albano but from the time I met DR. Shah, she has been great. I had the surgery yesterday morning 01/04/16 on my eye and I didn't realize that she called to check on me yesterday after the surgery . Dr Shah is a great doctor and I will refer her to friends or family. Dr. Shah you are a very good doctor and I want to thank you.
