Dr Shah is an excellent doctor. He listens and explains things completely and always is respectful. He is by far the best medical professional I have ever interacted with!

Every one is always very kind.

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.
