Dr. Shah is amazing and always makes me feel confident about where I am physically and helps ease me in knowing what I'm up against. Honestly I wish he could be primary care physician. Also his nurse is the most compassionate nurse I've ever dealt with. She remembers details about me that are not in my chart. Personal things that make me feel like she's been tending to me my whole life. The whole team is something to be amazed by.

patient, thorough, able to understand instead of using complicated medical words people who don't have medical background can understand. Made sure to provide the best option verses just making decision. provided the information first so I understood & then allowed me to choose which I felt was best.
