Patient Comments (1)

Although Dr. Shah is very direct, even to the point of interrupting you, he is the perfect doctor for you if you want all the dressing on the side. I met him while an inpatient. He gets the job done and does it well. If you want to discuss things a bit, he can get testy though. Wish you all good...more
