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.”

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.

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.

Dr. Bindesh Shah did my rotator cuff surgery last year and who so informative, he when above and beyond my expectations. So friendly and answered all my questions. Last month I broke my thumb and went to urgent care, when they gave me a doctor name, I of course, changed it to revisit Dr. Shah. I wish he was in general practice because he would be my primary physician for sure.

This was my first encounter with Dr. Shah. He clearly introduced himself as he entered the room and immediately sanitized his hands. He is friendly, a very good intent listener, very professional, very approachable, and at no point did I sense he had quit listening or felt he had spent too much time. Dr. Shah is definitely an attribute to PIH. Thank you
