Dr. Shah helps with any and all problems , not just kidney I have said before he is the BEST.

This provider has ALWAYS been late or behind schedule for my appointments. It is disrespectful to the patient to always be late for their appointments.

Dr. Shaw is a competent and very caring provider. I feel he is always looking out for my best interest. He is very intelligent and always personal.

It was my first visit with Dr. Shah and I can't say enough good things about him or his staff. It was a wonderful experience (for a doctor visit!!!)

Never had a bad experience.

one of the best

Listened to me about my problems and cared and is trying to help me!!!!

Everyone was extremely pleasant and helpful.

great Care, treated very very well. I look forward to my visits.

Entire staff/medical, were very professional. They treated me with dignity and respect.

I met Dr. Shah for the first time in this visit and her was very interested in all my health issues, not just the onesI was there about. This made me feel assured he would provide very accurate and informed guidance on how to successfully continue improving my health outcomes. I would recommend him to needing his expertise.

Everything was good and any concerns that I had were discussed. However, the change in my magnesium chloride was not discussed, it was just reported on the After Visit Summary.

explained everything asked...and course of action till my next visit

Dr. Shah spends more than adequate time answering my questions and addressing my concerns.

dr shah is always kind and patient and attentlive to all my concerns and questions and goes over bloodwork I have seen other doctors also. dr shah is one I have seen most frequent

Dr. Shah is a very easy doctor to talk to. He seems to really listen to you. Wish there was more days of the week you could see him, not just Wednesday.

Dr. Shah spent a great deal of time with me during my visit to get to know me and my medical history. He seems to care about his patients.

wonderful thorough and thoughtful

Dr. Shah is very professional and knowledgeable. He explains issues in depth and how to manage them.

Had to wait too long for my appointment

very Pleasant staff

No problem, I am still alive and that is good.

This office runs quite efficiently. I never have to wait long and the doctor is always well prepared.

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!

Dr. Shah is a very good care provider. He is always patient, respectful, and thorough during my appointments. I would highly recommend him to others.

Provider was knowledgeable, listened well, concerned about my concerns and conditions, friendly, professional and overall most excellent.

very good

This physician is always behind schedule, running late.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

I have only had good experiences with this provider

Dr. Shah is a wonderful provider. He seems to remember me as a person and not "just" another person. I would highly recommend him.

DR. so easy to talk to and he explains all question I had.
