Dermatology | Female

As a dermatologist I understand that ailments of the skin can impact a person both externally and emotionally. I want to make sure that I do everything in my power to ease my patient's problems and make their day better. It is essential to spend time listening and allow individuals to share their story. I believe that patients are part of the healthcare team. Only together can we cure or control an ailment. I value teamwork – through mutual trust, respect, and holding one another accountable, we can ensure the safety and well-being of our patients. Read more

This was my first visit upon referral from primary doctor. I was very happy with the initial visit and path provided for treatment.

Dr. Shah and assistant Cassie are professional yet kind. The skin evaluation feels complete yet not invasive.

I am a 65 year old man on a fixed income. I went to see Dr. Shah for a very common skin condition. I have recently moved to the area and needed to find a new dermatologist. Dr. Shah was the only one I was able to get in within a reasonable amount of time (derm shortage?). Dr. Shah insisted that I use a medicine that was over $350.00! I have experience with other options that have worked for me in the past. Insisted I "try" it. Pharmaceutical sales reps must be doing a great job with her.
I appreciate the feedback that was left and am committed to finding a resolution. I fully understand and am aware of the rising cost of pharmaceuticals. As a provider, I always try to present the most cost effective option for my patients. I encourage you to call our office to discuss if there are alternate more cost effective medications that can be prescribed for your condition.

Terrible. I have a severe skin issue, that I have had for years, and she didn't take time to speak with me or find out about previous treatments I had tried that worked. I would not recommend this doctor if you have severe skin issues. I would see someone with more experience and patient care skills. She about 30 seconds talking to me. However, the staff was very friendly and did a great job.
Thank you for your feedback. I apologize if you felt that an adequate amount of time was not spent discussing your condition. I believe establishing a good physician-patient relationship is essential in providing quality care. I encourage you to call our office to schedule a follow up appointment and give us the opportunity to take care of you.

Professional, great attitude, attentive, and answered all my questions.
in Benton Harbor, MI |
Dr. Shah is very friendly and competent. She quickly identified suspicious moles on my skin and exhibited skill taking biopsies with minimal pain an discomfort. The lab results confirmed her observations and she was able to quickly remove remaining basal cell carcinoma with easy-healing skin scrape/thermal treatment in lieu of traditional excision. My wife and I are very happy with Dr. Shah and highly recommend her.
