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. Shah is 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!

Very professional, as always. Be sure to ask questions when you are with the doc as he didn't tell me what to do about the pain until I asked later, after leaving his office.

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 time to 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.

I was amazed that I was directed to the doctors examining room right away and Dr. Shah walked in just a few moments after I was seated. Usually, a visit to an orthopedist's office is something I dread and, as strange as it may seem, I view this as an almost pleasant experience. The doctor is very personable, patient, and efficient. Believe all the positive reviews.

I was pleasantly surprised! This is one of the best appointments I've had in NYC. The NYU center is a bit of a maze, but everyone was very helpful and friendly in directing me to where I needed to be. No one part of the process took very long, and I waited at most 10 minutes between seeing different nurses and technicians. Expect to be greeted by several nurses, receptionists, xray techs, etc.
