Dr Shah is a personable and extremely knowledgeable nephrologist.

I had an 8 am appointment and i didn't get called into the office till 815 am and didn't see tDr Shaw till almost 850am . I take the 8 am appointment so i can see the doctor and head to work . I was told that Dr Shaw was double booked by the office and the office told me that Dr Shaw has to ok a double booking ??? I cannot afford to sit and wait for almost an hour once i have my 8 am appointment . Extremely unhappy with how this went down

All good experiences. Dr. Shah is an excellent doctor and very caring.

My experiences with Dr. Shah and his staff have always been very positive. They are friendly and efficient.

Excellent care

I have never had a bad experience with his provider

Great explanations. Very pleasant caring demeanor. I look.forward to the very frank, direct explanations that are always delivered in a caring way by all the members of my Transplant team. The only member of the team I am yet to see is my surgeon Dr. Tevar. But he did a fantastic job. my actual transplant surgery went really well. I have to say that the nursing staff on the Transplant wing was unbelievable.

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.
