The clinic seemed somewhat disorganized. I recognize that there has to be a certain amount of wait time for the pupils to dilate before taking the patient to a test, but the entire visit took 90 minutes with about five minutes of actual contact time with a provider. One instrument had been recently moved or something, and I think they were going to test me on it but didn't because it was out of service or unavailable... it wasn't quite clear. Then when the doctor finally saw me, he basically immediately told me I didn't even need to really be there (for a diabetic retinal exam one year after an initial exam) because my eyes were currently fine and any diabetes-related changes would be very slow and could be identified by a standard optometrist -- in which case, why did they schedule me to come back, after the first visit a year ago? I'm just as happy not to come back; the physician was very brusque in the current appointment and one year ago and I did not care for his "bedside manner" at all.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr Shah and his staff at the Eye Center! This was my first surgery ever, and he was so patient, explained everything in terms I could understand and answered all my questions. The staff at the UPMC Eye Center, and at UPMC Mercy where my surgery was done, were fantastic. Everyone from the surgical staff to the parking garage attendant were kind, pleasant, and helpful. I would highly recommend Dr Shah and the UPMC Eye and Ear Institute.

Doctor and everyone who administered my tests were courteous and competent. Doctor was extremely personable and very comprehensive. More so than I expected.

I appreciate Dr. Shah being upfront about my care and letting my tests reveal whether I need an eye injection or not.

nothing bad to say everyone was great providers

As usual, the time I spent waiting at the Eye Center seemed to be related to the unavailability of test equipment.

Dr Shah is a great physician. He is very kind, patient and extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend him strongly to anyone who is seeking a retina specialist.

Answered all questions thoroughly, and listened to my concerns. Asked me to tell him what symptoms would prompt an emergency call. Excellent skills.
