This physician is always behind schedule, running late.

October 28, 2016

Every one is always very kind.

October 12, 2016

I have a chronic condition so I see Dr. Shah about every 6 months. I see other doctors as well. I am very comfortable with care provided and his interest in me as a person. I would definitely recommend him to others. I would also take his recommendations for other physicians since he knows my concerns.

September 30, 2016

It is always a delight to see Dr. Shaw, of course though I have not had any bad news like rejection since I have met him. It was also great to see Stacey Acevedo my favorite transplant coordinator.

September 14, 2016

Dr Shah and his staff have been the most courteous, professional and helpful with my health than any other I have been involved with.

September 07, 2016

Good, no better than that, DR. SHAH, NIRAV ARVIND is easily one of your best doctors. I would be very sad if he was not my doctor.

August 12, 2016

I was very oleased with my doctor. he answered questions and took his time. great experience.

August 10, 2016

I was very happy with the care, communication and understanding from all of the staff but was most comfortable speaking to the doctor. I am a new patient of his and he was very informative and listened well to my concerns.

August 03, 2016

Dr. Shah provides me with lab orders in advance of my appointment. The results are made available to me on UPMC HealthTrak. He discusses the results with during my visit as well.

July 20, 2016

Dr. Shaw is the best doctor I have ever experienced. He is very attentive and shares his knowledge readily. I wish he was my PCP.
