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.”

September 20, 2021
All staff has been exceptional and the Dr. Shah received a 10/10 physician
September 20, 2021
Been a patient there for over 20 years. Patient care has been outstanding. Wouldn't go anywhere else giving an option. Dr Shah is a very conservative Dr. which I place in high regard.
September 17, 2021
very well all my questions were answered my experience was really good .
September 16, 2021
Please provide this. This doctor was very, very, very good. Very skilled and very knowledgeable in my in my injury. Actually, the best I've ever had. I've had multiple injuries and and some bad procedures in there. Wasn't as pleasant as as it was with Dr. Shah Very good. Thank you.
September 13, 2021
Dr. Shah listens well to what how I feel and what I would like to see done far as physical therapy or Lets me him. Decide what treatment works best for me. And I was able to walk again. After my knee surgery. He's working with me on my hip and appreciating extremely. Thank you.
September 02, 2021
Dr Shah was wonderful! He cared about how I felt, my recovery and everything associated with my surgery. I have never had a doctor show so much attention to how I felt after the surgery. I hope anyone who needs total knee replacement will see Dr Shah; he/she won't regret it. Thank you Dr Shah!
August 30, 2021
That they have the patient in notice of prompt attention, at least every 5 or 10 minutes waiting for the Doctor because I waited almost 30 minutes without anyone telling me that the Doctor would be with me shortly. Thanks
August 20, 2021
While I really like my surgeon, his OR time is very limited and looks like my surgery will not take place until 4-6 weeks. I can only imagine how much more pain I will have to endure until the surgery can take place. Surgeons need more OR time!!!
August 19, 2021
I arrived early for my appointment. I was there at 3:07 p.m. My appointment was at 3:15.
August 19, 2021
The doctor and nurses were great, but someone needs to monitor the waiting room as some people didn't cover their mouth and nose with a mask while in the waiting room. We all share the space, and someone should monitor and make sure that all patients are properly wearing their masks.
August 10, 2021
The doctor and staff were very patient and informative. All questions were answered. I was treated with respect . Dr Shah was very very nice Add made me feel comfortable when I got my Cortizone shot. I will go back to Dr. Shah again I really liked him
August 09, 2021
I was supposed to have an MRI after the first time I went with a dislocated finger and I'm waited two weeks to go to the appointment and still never had the MRI. Then I went and the doctor said that I would have one, they would call me and I still haven't heard from then. So I would give him a blank nothing. He's he or his staff does not follow up on what they say they're going to do and for maybe needing surgery. It was kind of silly to go to him. And now I have to go to a surgeon so it's like double duty. That's my opinion.
August 09, 2021
Dr. Bindesh Shah is awesome...
August 06, 2021
I was very grateful for having Dr. Shah see me as my doctor was not able to see me as he was booked. Dr. Shah was very helpful and thorough during my visit. I have been a patient of PIH and have never had a negative experience-I feel very fortunate to have PIH!
August 05, 2021
It was fine I wish the office wasn't so far for me to travel
August 02, 2021
I like to say that the staff and the doctor they all are very professional. And very kind, and helpful explained everything to me at surgery prior to the surgery.

February 19, 2021
His a very good Dr . And is very kind. And helpful. he lists to me. When l m taking to him about what is going on with me
February 18, 2021
if the doctor makes you wait more than a reasonable time (waited an hour after my appointed schedule), the office personnel should let the patient be aware, instead of leaving the patient waiting with no one to acknowledge why is a delay? or at least apologize but not wait for the doctor to show up late and leave up to him to do the apologies.
February 12, 2021
Thank You for listening to my needs!
February 09, 2021
It was an excellent service that I received, thank you.

January 08, 2021
I am new to PIH and have seen a few doctors and I found Dr. Shah to be most friendly, informative, and he listened to my concerns. Dr. Shah ordered MRI's which I had requested from another doctor and the MRI on my knee proved I was correct knowing my meniscus was my knee problem. And thanks to Dr. Shah. I am happy that I was appointed to Dr. Shah and found him, not like some doctors, to give his time listen and made me comfortable to continue with microscopic surgery on my knee.
January 07, 2021
Hi, I was referred to by Dr. Shah to another doctor for my epidural injection. But they never called me. I called them. They never called me and and they said that it was a mistake that I should have an appointment first with pain management doctor before I get scheduled for an epidural injection. Dr. Shah didn't tell me that. He thought he told me that I would just have to dial the number for my epidural injection right away. And then somebody told me it was a mistake that has to be you have to this person has to be seen by a pain management doctor. So that was my only complaint. Until now I haven't received any call from Pain Management yet.
January 05, 2021
I did not like the way he treated me.
January 04, 2021
