Patient Comments (7)
After a hip replacement done elsewhere, I had pain issues that were not getting resolved. I was given the name of Dr. Shah. Upon meeting him I liked him alot. However, when I continued having problems after a number of attempts to alleviate the problem, I called him to ask a question and was never given the courtesy of a call back. Instead it was suggested I get another doctor. I am so disheartened. Doctors should treat their patients the way they would want their loved ones treated- Not ignored

I had a partial knee replacement and everything went just as the doctor told me. 1 year 100% full recovery. Road my bike outside four weeks after surgery.

You know when you meet someone and immediately you feel comfortable with them, that's how I felt after meeting Dr. Shah. Last week, I had my left hip replaced. I was very scared and Dr. Shah put me at ease. He listened to all my questions and explained things so could understand them. One week later, and I feel so much better than I did before the surgery. In addition, I was very impressed with the New England Baptist hospital. The nurses were awesome and the facility was clean and updated

Dr Shah took me as a patient after I had had a number of surgeries on my hip. I had complications after my hip replacement, and ultimately contracted MRSA in the joint. Dr. Shah correctly told me that the implant needed to be removed for some time and the infection treated with intravenous antibiotics, but he made a couple of false assumptions. Ultimately, he dropped me as a patient after removing the hip, and left me nowhere to turn.

I honestly stumbled upon Dr Shah!! A year ago when I was having pain in my hip I was doing some You Tube surfing and I watched an educational video with Dr Shah describing THR . His confidence yet humble description of what to expect when having surgery at the New England Baptist Hospital led me to make my appointment immediately with him. I was blessed that there happen to be a cancelation and I could get in to see him within two weeks and less than 6 weeks after I had my surgery!!
