Concerned about radioactive tests and how to manage that versus test information that is needed. Good analytical thought process and plan for future care and monitoring.

I respect Dr. Shah and trust him as my heart Dr.....however, I would prefer that my follow up appointments be made at the end of my visit.....even if it is for the following year! It was 15 months between visits this time...and NO labs since August 2018. In the BIG picture of Life.....I am happy with Dr. Shah and his staff.....whenever there has been an issue.....They have been there for me!

Did NOT know medical history. I didn't get a thorough exam or check-up. First time patient for this Dr. Shah. He didn't know anything about me. Didn't go over labs either. Mainly we just sat and visited about NA subject.

Good experience as usual - A pleasure to see the doctor and his staff - even though its only once a year. The care given to the grounds, office building and parking area is exceptional.

Reviewed on May 25, 2018 7:00 PM

I had a pleasant experience with Dr. Shah. We had discussed getting an MRI done previously. I appreciated that he wanted to hold off on this test unless it became more obvious I needed it. When doctors in general are pushy about test, I feel like they're trying to make money for the hospital. Having a measured approach towards specialized tests makes me trust Dr. Shah very much.

Reviewed on May 25, 2018 7:00 PM

Since being referred by Dr. X at Christ Hospital, Dr. Shah has been far more than I had hoped for. And he and his staff have shown more concern for my well being than I thought possible, and I look forward to a long term relationship as I have only found a very few doctor offices that don't mind going to for check ups and such. I've learned my lesson about thinking I was immune to having major health problems.
