Dr. Shah says firsthand exposure to “various orthopedic deformities” as a medical student and resident in India lead him to specialize in orthopedic surgery. Backed by strong family support, Dr. Shah—recipient of an arthritis and reconstructive surgery fellowship—became a physician to serve the community.  He says, “I always wanted to assume independent responsibility with hard work and zeal.” He describes his ability to alleviate arthritic pain and improve the quality of life for his patients simply as “gratifying.”

Dr. Shah belongs to the Jain Center of Southern California and served on the volunteer medical rescue team that provided relief to victims of the 1993 earthquake in India. He enjoys tennis, travel, music, cooking and “spending time with family.”

Dr. Shah has wonderful doctor/patient communication. He's kind, open, responsive to questions, gets to the source of your problem and explains in detail how he will proceed to rectify the problem. I like his direct approach. I got the impression that he will try everything before resorting to surgery.

This doctor listens and answers questions, but he does not offer additional information that may be helpful. He is old school. If you need medication, confirm where it is being sent before you leave the office. No, do not share online.

Waiting 1:30 without any updates or acknowledgment is unacceptable. After waiting for an hour I stepped out of the room and without any apology or "people skills" the medical assistant abruptly stated "you're next ok. He is finishing up in the other room." Thirty minutes later Dr. Shah appeared without an apology for such a ridiculous wait.
October 21, 2016
