Very knowledgeable Doctor. He laid out options for my shoulder injury and didn't sugar coat anything.

Dr. Shah was very patient and pleasant. He noticed right away that I had another problem aside from what my appointmentwas for and recommended two doctors. Will definitely be back if needed.

Arrived early for the appointment, taken right away. Dr. Shah's nurse was efficient and very nice, and the doctor himself was a breath of fresh air, down to earth, spoke to me like the thinking person I am and not anumber. He sent me for x-rays right then for a knee problem, sat and talked with me afterwards about all my options, advised me on health issues involved with each option, and recommended surgeons on staff for the point in time when I decide I can schedule the knee replacement. I was in and out in under an hour, an efficient staff at every step.

My first appointment was a consultation for chronic shoulder pain — they performed an x-ray and referred me to get an MRI. I'm not 100% sure of the diagnosis yet, but Dr. Shah heard my concerns and didn't rush to any conclusions.

I came in to see Dr. Shah because I have been having knee problems which I believe have stemmed from running. I did not have to wait at all, they took me in right away! After the nurse looked at me,Dr. Shah came in right after. He was quick but thorough with my diagnosis, and told me that he did not think I needed x-rays, which was great because he did not try to sell me something that would have cost me a lot more. He then spent a lot of time answering any and all questions I had, and gave me cost-effective suggestions for treatment. Would highly recommend!

This may have been one of the most efficient and enjoyable doctor visits ever for me. The team and processes at NYU Langone are so organized that I was able to see the doctor, get an x-ray and have it reviewedall within an hour. Not to mention Dr. Shah was wonderful to work with. I appreciated his attention to detail and his consideration to getting my poor knee the help it needs. I will happily be visiting again.

Good bedside manner but comes to a diagnosis almost too quickly without providing much input on causes of the condition, time to recovery, etc. In prior visits I have not had an opportunity to complete listing my symptoms before Dr. Shahhas already made a diagnosis. Turnaround is typically under two or three minutes which seems almost too quick.

Dr. Shah is everything a doctor should be. My husband had surgery on his shoulder with Dr. Shah in December and we have been so impressed with the care and compassion we have received. The office is fantastic and Dr. Shahis personable, compassionate, he takes his time, and he's a great listener. He's also very conservative about the decision to have surgery - which we appreciate. He had us try every other solution before resorting to surgery. Can't say enough good things about Dr. Shah!

Dr. Shah is very good but as with most doctors in NYC, very quick in turning patients around. He takes a quick assessment, just says what the issue is and that's it. It would be great if he took the timeto tell you what may have caused the issue and general avoidance or explain the issue in more detail. But other than that, he appears competent and has a good bedside manner.
