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.

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.
