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.”

I went to Urgent Care on Sunday and I didn't get in until the following Friday. And when I finally did get in to Dr. Shah, he rushed me, I didn't get to ask any questions, and I was left unsatisfied...way less unsatisfied when I walked out of there. I have to go back in 2 months or 3 months, and I'm seriously going to change to (name removed) because I didn't care for Dr. Shah. He didn't listen, it was whole appointment was rushed. So I was really disappointed because I usually get great care at the PIH, on that particular floor too. So I won't be recommending him to anybody and I probably won't go see him for the follow up appointment. I'll probably change it to (name removed). Thank you.

The 12400 Bloomfield office was friendly at the checknin point. And Bindesh Shah' entire office staffade my visit comfortable and enlightening. I shared with Bendesh Shah how i felt as he & his staff had an enjoable office. Along with his medical service he provided me. Thank you, My nieces all work for Kaiser & they are always trying to get us to switch over. Nope...not going to. Thank you All (PHI removed) Workers Stay because they feel Valued & Appreciated Thanks again.

June 20, 2022
Dr. Shah is very professional in what he does, especially with the results of my operation. Thank you Dr. Shah.
June 17, 2022
The staff in this office are very helpful and they show they care about you. Had x-rays done and the tech was very patient and gentle with me. He was also kind enough to escort me back to my room because the layout of the offices is so confusing. Dr. Shah is a very thoughtful and friendly physician. He explains everything in simple terms. I'm very happy to have been referred to him for treatment.
June 16, 2022
Was ok
June 13, 2022
It was a good experience.
June 13, 2022
The office was very cold. we needed some clothes or some blankets in order to to be able to sit there and wait for the doctor. I suggest that temperatures be turned down quite a bit, especially early in the morning. Thank you.
June 10, 2022
I love my... the attention that my Dr. Shah gives me to me. I love my Dr. Shah. I recommend my doctor to all my family.

Dr B Shah is kind, knowledgeable and takes the time to answer questions and explain. Excellent MD. His assistant was very helpful.
May 24, 2022
Dr. Shah is always very thorough, caring, concerned and compassionate. This is my second hip he is replacing and he has replaced my husbands knee. We wouldn't trust anyone else!!!
May 24, 2022
Usually I'm seen right on time. Today's visit included long wait times, but Dr Shah was still good. Maybe they were just overwhelmed today.
May 19, 2022
All good, thanks!
May 09, 2022
Luckily waiting a long time in the waiting room and in the examining room has no reflection of how good of a doctor Dr Shah is. Once he was in the room he attended to me promptly and was very thorough. Too had he's a hip doctor and not a knee doctor. I liked him. Thanks to Doctor Shah.
May 09, 2022
Well it all started when I was with another group doctors in the Apple care group. I was sent to the Bloomfield office to see another Doctor Who had retired they tried to find me another doctor and said they did and the day I got there he was not there and to the lack of everyone this doctor was and when I shifted to PIH healthcare from Apple Care I was very happy Dr. Shah had an office very close to where I live and he's primarily up PIH Dr which I'm so very happy you guys are lucky to have them and so am I it was a great experience thank you it's hard for me to usually give that kind of a recommendation but it truly truly is for this guy and his staff. Yours truly, (PHI removed)
May 06, 2022
I am very happy with the doctor on the first visit with him and it seems to me that the (unreadable) is a successful doctor. And the necessary time with me to explain to me to really tell me my situation. All with great respect and the seriousness that still fills him with happiness, thanks to Dr.
May 05, 2022
Would most likely want to continue like to visit your doctors in the future

This office has always been extremely efficient. They're very friendly, very nice, very helpful. They take great care of their patients and the doctors are wonderful, the staff are wonderful. I've been going there for many years. My mom went there before me. We've been with them for over 20 years, maybe 30. It's a great office to go to. Thank you.
April 08, 2022
Yes, my name is (PHI removed) Ortega. So. I most likely... the parking's. They charge you for the parking. They don't validate the doctor's office. Doesn't validate the parking space and I don't know. They should validate, whenever you're going to visit a doctor at pH. I know they should validate the parking space. I know. And then they tell you that you got 2 minutes to get out of the parking, you know, and if not, whatever, you pay more. I didn't like that part. Okay. Bye.
April 07, 2022
We were very pleased with Dr Shah and the staff!

March 25, 2022
Good service.
March 22, 2022
My appointment was made for 8:00 and I received a text that my appointment was at 8:00 and that it was with (name removed). I believe in that office. And then when I got there, I was told to go upstairs and then it turned out that my appointment was not until 8:30. And then (name removed) did not know who the appointment was with it. So I was switched over to Dr. Shah. So I waited longer than I have to because there was a mistake made with the time of my appointment.
March 18, 2022
Waiting time was short
March 17, 2022
