He seemed to be in a hurry to leave the room as soon as walked in. He talked too fast, wasn't helpful, and wouldn't explain things even when asked. I'll not do my follow-up appointment with him.

My 13 year old daughter tore her ACL and meniscus and is in need of surgery. Dr. Shah explained her injury and the options that were available to us in great detail. She is an athlete so this injury is devastating to her. He made her feel at ease which was the best part of the whole visit. I would highly recommend Dr. Shah.

I am very pleased with Dr Shah. I have been going to an orthopd for several years for the same problem. Dr Shah actually provided more options and advice in this first visit than I have received in all my previous visits to the other doctor. His approach is professional,yet he put me at ease immediately. Speaking with me in an accepting and intelligent tone. I immediately felt that I would be a large part of my care plan. He listened to my concerns and provided several options towards my treatment. In total ,I was very happy with this excellent doctor and his staff.

I did not like Dr. Shahs bedside manner. With the conclusion of the problem, his hand was on the door handle ready to move on without giving me much opportunity to ask questions especially when surgery is a concern.
