Beginning with my phone call to make an appointment , to my initial meeting with Dr. Shah reviewing my xrays I have felt a sense of partnership. I was always a part of the decision making which was very important to my. The coordination of services after the surgery was efficient and complete. I am more than satisfied with my experience and share this with others who are contemplating orthopedic surgery.

My hip replacement surgery was at New England Baptist in April, 2018. Dr. Shah and his NEBH surgical and nursing team are superb. Dr. Shah is moving from NEBH to Brigham and Faulkner Hospitals in July 2018.

Dr Shah is outstanding . He listens , he is prepared and he is confident. I have had over 10 knee surgeries and he is my favorite orthopedic for his skills along side a very calming bedside manner. I highly recommend him. I had a complicated knee problem and he was great.

If you need a knee replacement don't look any further then Dr Shah. He is the BEST. He replaced my husband's knee which was inflected for 13 months after the previous surgeon did not do his job right. We would highly recomend Dr. Shah. Keep up the great work!

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
