The doctor talked a lot, but I didn't get any specific solution to my problem. I will search for another doctor. I would not do any serious operations with him, because he seemed to me indifferent to Me. He wasn't trying to help.

Dr Shah was fantastic. He was considerate and caring and thorough in his explanations. I didn’t feel shamed or rushed. The only downside was that the nurses didn’t seem fully knowledgeable on what they were doing, so that could have beensmoother. But the dr was great and the administrative staff was helpful too!

Been holding off visiting the dentist for years after a bad experience with a root canal. Dr Shah is absolutely amazing, his bedside manner is truly something you don’t see often amongst healthcare professionals. He explained everything thoroughly,provided me options for treatment and his staff is wonderful. I highly recommend Dr. Shah.

It was great! They were a bit backed up, so there was a little bit of a wait to be seen. But the doctor was very friendly, funny, and had me taken care of in no time. Wish I could give6 stars. I definitely don't want to see an oral surgeon if I don't need to, but this will be my first choice if I need one in the future.

I went there for an emergency consultation..yes the 1st floor doesn't look like much but the upstairs is awesome..super clean and new..I was seen by a female doctor and she was absolutely amazing..took the time to go over any concerns Imay have, so did the assistant who kept me company as I waited... I got to meet Dr Shah as well and he did the same and had a great sense of humor...every single staff member was super professional and friendly...all the front desk girls are super sweet..this place does not discriminate or treat you differently based on the insurance you have. When I decide to I will definitely choose this place to have my wisdom teeth removed!

Before I even booked an appt, I was already dreading the visit. I needed wisdom teeth extracted and the thought of it made me want to cry lol. Thank god for Dr Shah and his team because they made me feelat ease and before I knew it, I woke up and the procedure was done! It felt like 1 minute and was probably 20. I’m home now wishing I knew went to Dr Shah sooner and if I had anymore wisdom teeth, he would be my go-to man.

I am stunned at how wonderful Dr. Shah was. After so many dentists upselling me on products and giving me poor care because of my insurance, I was amazed to be treated so well. Very honest, down to earth, and extremelyknowledgeable. Definitely found my new dental practice. Highly recommend him if you’ve been through similar!

My visit at this dentist’s office was amazing. I went to get my wisdom teeth removed and the nurses were so nice and were so helpful after the procedure. The only thing is I don’t know if I was supposed toreceive discharge papers; I didn’t receive any information about aftercare or anything informing me on the steps I should take next. I pretty much had to depend on Google for everything.

I had to have an extraction of a back molar that was giving me major pain for over a month. I had started the procedure with another dentist of root canal only for it to become infected & a source ofmajor pain. Dr. shah not only took care of the problem, he also eased my anxiety. I had the extraction with just a local anesthetic & did not feel any pain at all. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I had an amazing experience. Dr. Shah is a very delightful person. He answered all of my questions with a smile on his face. I had two of my wisdom teeth taken out and I didn’t feel a thing. He gaveme an IV Sedation and the last thing I remember is him asking me to lay back. I woke up and I was a bit out of it but I felt no pain and I was able go back home after 10 minutes.
