Dr. Shah was awesome! He was so quick and efficient and clear in his diagnosis and not only got me on the right track to clear up my sinus infection but wants to get down to business in clearing up theroot issue. Would highly recommend. Best ENT I have ever seen and I've seen a few.

He diagnosed me with a viral infection. Said I should go home and let it wear off. 2 weeks later I still have very bad symptoms. Went back to a different doctor (Omar I think) and he said I have acidreflux. This time, they sent me back with a piece of paper that has the words "Prilosec OTC" written on it. (Over the counter med).... a hefty few bills later.... I still feel bad, nothing is better.... yesterday I called the office FOUR times to ask for something stronger. Every time they said the doctor is not available at the moment and said they'll call me back...no one called. I called again after 6pm and the woman said she'll leave a message and ask them to call me back. No one has called me back? I'm still waiting. Extremely disappointing.

I have high expectations in my physicians, and Dr. Shah exceeded them. It is important for me that my doctor have a mix of expertise in their field and great people skills. Dr. Shah was personable, informative and put me atease. He used effective analogies and patiently answered all my questions - I never felt rushed. I feel much less apprehensive about potential treatment after discussing the issue with Dr. Shah. His demeanor, and the professionalism of the staff, made me feel confident in my decision to have Dr. Shah treat me.
