Make an Appointment


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.”

The Doctor was very nice and explained everything to my husband and I about my injury and the treatment needed. We felt very fortunate that PIH was able to see us so quickly without an appointment and help me with my injury. Thank you so much .

When I made this appt I told the receptionist that my father was unable to walk and this would be a very big deal to get him there. I let them know he had recent xrays of his knees from PIH hospital. Could they please be prepared to help my father so that he might get some relief in walking. I was told that he needed to be "seen" , apparently that could have been done virtually because the Dr did nothing to "see" him. They didn't have him even stand. So the appt was pointless except to order the shots that we knew he needed already. Why were they not ordered? So my father received no help to the car and ended up on the asphalt parking lot unable to get up and had to call 911 and the paramedics to help. This is unacceptable treatment.
