Verified Patient Reviews
I was pleased with his easy manner and thoroughness in going over my history. I was hoping that he was more of an internist as opposed to a sports therapist. As his assistant said "he does everything" and I am sure he can. However, I have to decide if adding yet more doctors to my already full roster is what I want to do, or do I want an old fashioned family practitioner (internist). Overall, my experience with Dr. Shah and his staff was very pleasant.
I appreciate His Professionalism, as well as His compassion. He goes out of His way to Identify the actualyy problem rather than just treating symptoms. His honesty & bedside manner were a rare treat for Me! :-D
