      Sometimes doctors think themselves all wise, like Dr. Shah, but are unwilling to do some tests to find the problem. I've called, emailed and waited on results and some kind of feeling that they care about my plight, but to no avail. I would recommend only to someone with a definite heart problem that is already diagnosed.

      Dr Shah is an extremely competent physician. He is also a very caring individual. I feel fortunate that he is my doctor.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
