Patient Comments (5)

Dr. shah is a very warm, caring man. My reconstructive surgery was handled without a hitch. I tell all he was my first and only choice.

Very unprofessional and impersonal. After two appointments, he told me he would have to wait two years to do my double mastectomy reconstruction. The Cleveland Clinic did my reconstruction at the time of my mastectomy.

To make it easier not to make other patients wait to see the doctor, I took time to print out my BMX pictures, and as to why I needed a new physician. *He did not have time to look at it, he told me. Husband is only provider, so if any plastic surgery, I have to do them years apart If bad...more
