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 repaired my badly broken ankle 4 years ago. He did an excellent job in the repair, and subsequent PT and visits. He understood my current issue, and provided me with all the appropriate tests and PT appointments. I would recommend him to any family or friends who required help in his speciality.

Great provider, nice to talk to, explain everything you have to know.
October 27, 2017
Provider didn’t explore my symptoms and was too quick to dismiss me and didn’t use his independent assessment of case to diagnose my condition
October 24, 2017
Dr Shah is a great doctor, he took very good care of me. Saw me in one day and set up an MRI that same evening.

See my previous post. I have had MD thorough PIH that were delayed for various reasons but the lateness was acknowledged and the time spent with me seemed to justify the delay in the appointment. This was not true for Dr. Shah. I believe he is a reasonable practitioner, although both he and his partner said I could expect about a 2-3 week time in restraint and after 5 weeks he suggested I continue in it until I complained about his suggestion I continue for another 6 weeks. I would not recommend him or would warn them to be very proactive in forcing him to respond to their concerns. I got a satisfactory response when I kept asking questions. The first time I was just out of the hospital and expected him to be more communicative.
