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.

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

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.

my son is mentally & physically delayed, in a wheelchair. Dr. Shah impressed me when he walked in and introduced himself to Andrew (my son) first & asked him how he was doing. He was very thorough in asking questions. Very kind man. We will see him in 6 months. I feel comfortable with Dr. Shah being Andrew's Doctor. The young man at the reception desk was great.
