Lansing, MI |
Dr. Shah is wonderful. He is thorough yet kind. Passionate about his work and his patients. I am a long-time patient in Lansing and will be making the drive to Marshall if I must. I have referred friends to him and they have been very happy. I am not able to rate his new office, so office and staff ratings apply to the office I know. I am sure, given his standards, that the new office is just as great.

Dr. Shah saved my life by sending me to Dr. Glen Lehman at the Univ. of Indianapolis for a life-threatening attack of pancreatitis. Unlike most doctors, this proves that he is willing to seek additional advice when needed. He treated me with respect and did not condemn me for my previous alcohol addiction. I can't adequately express my great appreciation of him as a person and medical professional.
