How was your experience with Dr. Shah?
Excellent experience over a number of years. Dr Shah is thorough, reassuring, and conscientious in his care. I would recommend him highly, and I have.
Very nice, knowledgeable doctor. Dr. Shah explained everything in a thorough, calm manner that put me at ease. Thanks Dr. Shah!
He is very calming and the treatment works. The doctor has a great bedside manner and I have referred both my mother-in-law and good friend there for varicose vein treatments. He is very cutting edge and overall took a bad experience and made it good. His staff is all very friendly and nice. He was really good all the way around; I have no complaints about him.
Twenty years ago I went to Dr. Shah for spider vein removal which was treated with injection Sclerotherapy. It was almost painless and a great experience, as they were totally eliminated after his two treatment sessions and never returned in those areas of my legs again. I was in my late 40s then. Now I am in my late 60’s and had decided to get my legs done again, in new areas of my legs, before I went on a cruise. I called Dr. Shah, but unfortunately I could not get an appointment right away which I needed as to go on my cruise. I saw numerous ads on the TV for a clinic which is nationwide and which does vein treatments. I called them and got an appointment right away. I had two treatments but at this other clinic they only use a nurse and not a doctor to do the injection Sclerotherapy which were much more painful than Dr.Shah’s treatment. My spider veins looked just the same as they did when I started my treatments with them… They said it would take a few months to see results but I never saw any results at all. When I called them back they said it would take about 8 treatments to see results, which is not what they told me before. I decided six months later to make an appointment with Dr. Shah and had them treated with two almost painless sclerotherapy treatments. Dr. Shah himself does all the treatments and he is a perfectionist. So my legs look great again! I would highly recommend Dr. Shah to anyone who wants a job well done with the least amount of discomfort as well.
I have been a patient of Doctor Shah’s for almost a decade. I heard about him through an Action News segment on advanced vein technology. Dr Shah was on the cutting edge of vein treatments. He has researched, tested and discussed with colleagues worldwide the best treatment care available for patients. He customizes each vein procedure – based on patient issues. He utilizes various minimally invasive vein treatments for varicose veins, using Endovenous laser ablation for Saphenous veins for leaky valves and micro-phlebectomy for residual varicose veins whereas for spider veins on legs he uses mostly Sclerotherapy in his protocol because not all veins are created equal!!! Genuine, kind, brilliant, conscientious and thorough are some ways to describe him. He truly wants each patient to have legs to be pain free and healthy to live life in a mindful way. His staff reflects these ideals as well. Veins … They are problems for some of us –based on heredity and usage in life … And I am fortunate to have found a caring and excellent Doctor to take charge and send those veins away!! We tease each other – that he wants us all to have Cinderella legs — and that’s better than a glass slipper any day !
I recently had my severe varicose veins corrected by Dr Shah using Endovenous Laser Ablation for the Saphenous veins followed by Micro-Phlebectomy for the residual Varicose veins. I found the entire process to be very professionally done and with minimal discomfort. Dr Shah very patiently answered all my questions in detail, and took care to explain each step both before and during the procedures. The results have been excellent, and I can heartily recommend Dr Shah to anyone else who wants to get their varicose veins corrected.
My experience with Dr. Shah has been nothing short of amazing for my Varicose Veins. He and his medical assistants/receptionists are professional, courteous, caring, experienced, and thorough – they treat you like a friend or family member, not just another patient. Dr. Shah also prides himself on being punctual so, unlike most visits to a doctor’s office, the wait is pleasantly brief – for the most part, if you’re on time, he’s on time. I wouldn’t hesitate to see Dr. Shah again for any of the numerous procedures he performs, and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone seeking his type of expertise.
I was referred to Dr Shah by my dermatologist to remove my varicose veins. She told me he was the best Vascular Doctor in the Philadelphia area. Upon meeting Dr Shah, he personally did a thorough consultation which involved taking my history and examing my legs followed by him personally doing a venous duplex ultrasound which enabled him to find out that I had “leaky valves” in my Saphenous veins. Following this he recommended that I needed to have endovenous laser ablation procedure followed by Micro-Phlebectomy for my Varicose veins on my legs. Having never had any type of surgery, I was very apprehensive about the whole process. Dr Shah and his staff were so friendly and immediately put me at ease. I have never had such a personal rapport with a doctor or his staff before now. It is refreshing to be around Dr Shah and the girls in his office. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is suffering with varicose veins.
I wanted to thank you for making my life easier. You did a FANTASTIC job on my legs, clearing the spider veins. God has truly blessed you, and I pray that he always will. After going to several doctors, I am certain that God led me to you. I can’t tell you how GRATEFUL I am to you!
Thank you so much for everything you have done for me over the past week. I appreciate you squeezing my Varicose vein procedures in in such a short time, and for being the kindest, most caring doctor I’ve met. Not feeling rushed in any of my appointments and having all my questions answered is priceless. Thanks again, you’re the best!
Being an anxious patient, I sincerely appreciate all the TLC treatment you all gave to me during my vein procedures. It made me feel very comfortable and my veins have disappeared like magic!
I would like to thank-you for introducing me to the dermal fillers. You explained the product is used to augment and sculpt facial areas. What came as a wonderful surprise was that the result seemed like magic! My chin, nose and laugh lines were injected. The chin injection was to “create” a little more definition on my profile; whereas, the nose injection softened a bump on the bridge of my nose (originally incurred years before in a lacrosse game). All the injected areas look, natural and definitely make my face appear more symmetrical. As happy as I am with the results, I am also grateful to you for your skilled hands, thorough knowledge of the vascular system and your artistic eye. You always take such time and care and only administer a product if you believe it safe and a good match for the patient. I have very sensitive skin and have on many occasions benefited from your cautious care. As we age, the faces changes and the soft tissue drops and the skin starts to wrinkle. It’s a true gift to be able to do a little maintenance to diminish the outward appearance of aging. I like that the products aren’t permanent because from year to year we may need to change the course of action we take. But for now, my skin and face look great- thanks to you! I also thank your staff for always being so nice and taking that extra few minutes to check for scheduling times.
I am a personal trainer. I love what I do because the better people feel about themselves – the better they treat others and view life. Endorphins – the natural happy chemical our brains make when we are in an euphoric state make us feel great…..SO …. Ok- here is the fun info !!! Dr Shah can take fillers and Botox and make you look as refreshed as you used to feel!!!! ( endorphin time when you smile )…!!! When the world views you as refreshed – we all seem to step up to the plate and feel better. When we show our exhaustion or sun damage in aging – our reflection appears to be tired. So –I call facial appointments as magic time !!!! Dr Shah has many different products ( all FDA approved) that he can choose to help us with the result we desire. The treatments vary for each patient -as a photo facial or laser facial may achieve the reversal of sun damaged skin and eradication of spider veins and redness on the face. The dermal filler may take away the deep and superficial lines and wrinkles that have found their way into our facial creases. No matter what procedure Dr Shah advises… You can be assured HE is performing the task himself and you are not in a production line of a nurse doing the fillers or Botox injections. Dr Shah has never given me that horrific frozen look or scared/shocked look because he believes in a natural look — and takes every precaution to assure his patients are happy with their result. I have many clients who were unaware that I “helped nature” along the way. I believe in sharing the fact that our bodies can get strong, can get lean. can be healthy — but aging and the decrease of estrogen in females is a battleground that can be attacked !!!!! Three cheers that Dr Shah has taken our side to make those creases and lines disappear !!! It is wonderful to trust your smile in the hands of a caring talented doctor and artist!
