When I asked him about different radiation treatment options he explained each one in detail and why he felt that treatment would or would not benefit me in my situation. Dr. Shah throughly explained his reasoning behind each of his answers. Since my appointment with him on 9/26 we have had multiple email exchanges in regards to my care and he has always been very helpful and extremely prompt. He is willing to help in any way he can.

I just wanna say, I have come to truly respect and love Dr. Shah. He is a very professional, no nonsense individual, but has a sense of humor. So glad to have him as my Doctor. He went over details of my tests and condition. No need to lolly-gag with him. I loved that I was not put in his office for 20 minutes before he would show up. My wait was no longer than about 5 minutes, which is a record for some doctor offices.
