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 with a total knee replacement, he was able to correct a deformity due to a long standing injury. I'm so happy with results! My leg & hips are now propperly aligned. Dr. Shah is an excellent surgeon.

The doctor seemed to really understand my injury and asked my thoughts on the way to treat it. he asked if I wanted Gel injections that might help.

Dr Shah has a very busy schedule with many patients requiring his time and yet he found the time to explain about how my bursitis could be causing my pain and at the end of the day it was indeed the bursitis and not my arthritis that was causing the underlying pain that he was able to treat effectively with a cortisone shot!

That's he a good doctor but don't forget that his office doesn't take Cigna

About this provider and all of the ones I've had to see. The appointments are always more than one month away. The announcement says you can get in same day, never happens, even if you are in desperate need.
April 26, 2019
Dr. Shah is a marvelous surgeon. He stepped into a very complicated position and thoroughly researched every aspect of my care. He really cares about his patients. I would recommend Dr. Shah above any surgeon I have had (and I have had several) for orthopedic surgery and after care. I trusted him from the first visit.

What i mentioned earlier
February 08, 2019
Dr. Shah is professional, takes time to explain the situation and next steps, listens withconcern, is polite and respectful, took his time, requested another x-ray to know theseriousness of the pain more decisively. When surgery is decided upon, I feel confidentthat Dr. Shah be my surgeon...I trust and respect his bedside manner.
February 07, 2019
I was very impressed with service and promptness of the staff. It does take a little time to register before you go to see your doctor because of the question and information you fill out on the electronic equipment and the staff also helps you when needed.

The blood pressure machine wasn't working properly, so the medical assistant just gave up and said, it's okay, we don't need it! I walked into the examining room and saw the doctor sitting there, chatting with the nurses behind the desk about their coffee and food order. I provided an X Ray, and while sitting in the room, I could hear him say, is she here for her foot or her hand? Someone told him the X Ray is for her back. When he entered the room, he started rattling off his knowledge of surgery and pediatrics, neither of which are relevant to me. He then busted out a computer screen and started searching scoliosis on a medical database and started reading to me about surgery and scoliosis in small children. Mind you, I am an adult. He then said he should examine me, and asked me to move my ankle. I moved my ankle, and he said, no, move this one. He meant my foot. He doesn't know the difference between basic body parts and he doesn't listen.He is the perfect example of someone who is book smart yet lacks basic common sense. On my way out, he said, if you like, we can do an MRI in case you have arthritis. I'm not coming back.
December 06, 2018
He is helpful and professional. This appointment could have been taken care of over the phone, since I need to come back for the procedure. There was no real exam.
December 03, 2018
He is a very knowledgeable and caring person

Keep up the good work
November 01, 2018
We waited for over an hour to see him no one came out to let us know he was running behind on appt's. Then literally spent less than 5 minutes with the provider. My advice is to let patients know if provider is running behind I was starting to wonder if my son was forgotten!
November 01, 2018
Everyone as very helpful.
