I have been under Dr. Shahs care for a little over a month. I have been suffering with severe leg pain for years, have had a lumbar laminectomy performed in 2008, and been taking pain medication, on and off, for many years. My General Practitioner referred me to Dr. Shah. From our first meeting it was obvious that Dr. Shah cared about me. He took the time to fully understand my medical history and with each piece of the puzzle, methodically began a treatment regime that, to date, has been spot on.
After an MRI Dr. Shah spent a lot of time explaining what he saw including walking me through a series of pictures that initially looked like an abstract modern work of art to the point that I fully understood what I was looking at. Dr. Shah performed an epidural steroid injection and I immediately felt a reduction in my pain levels. After two and a half days, I was pain free for the first time in recent memory. During the injection, Dr. Shah explained each step and prepared me for any possible procedure induced pain from the multiple injections he was performing. The discomfort was minimal and after the 10 minute procedure, Dr. Shah showed me x-rays of what he had just done to my spine.
Throughout, Dr. Shah’s competency, compassion and bedside manner have been thoroughly professional and thorough. I highly recommend Dr. Shah and am confident that I am able to look forward and will have a professional that cares for me and about me for the long term. I feel better than I have felt in more years than I care to think about.
I would also like to thank his office staff, a group that reflect the same professionalism as Dr. Shah and have made me feel special from day one of this long journey.
