DR SHAU IS MY KIDNEY DOCTOR I THINK HE THE BEST AND VERY GOOD AT WHAT HE DOES

March 22, 2016

All STI staff is highly trained and good with patients.

March 16, 2016

Dr. Shah is one of the best doctors I have had experience with. He is knows about my history, my health, and just as importantly I believe he know about me as a human being and looks at me as such. I am not just a kidney patient, I am a person.

Dr Nirav Shah was excellent and Lori my transplant coordinator does an outstanding job

October 02, 2015

My experience was excellent. While my former doctors were very good it was great having a doctor who's expertise in in medical rather than primarily surgery. With my multitude of health issues it's refreshing to have someone look at the whole person.

September 23, 2015

We never have any problems when we come for the appointments. Everyone is always friendly and courtesy to us.

September 09, 2015

Dr. Shah is a wonderful provider. He explains things, he listens, he was able to look at me and get a sense of how I was feeling. Highly reccommend.

July 29, 2015
