Oh he is really very approachable. He had reviewed my last visit and knew who I was and my heart history. I have found many heart doctors to be technical excellent but lacking in human response. Dr Shah combines the best of both worlds. Plus he truly respects his patients.

Dr Shaw was fantastic! He had prepared by weeding through my extremely thick medical record from the few years looking for previous cardio red flags and found some! He let me point out a few things that make me a medical rarity that could have cardio impact. I felt respected and heard. He explained his next steps and why he was taking them. He showed me a few ways to contact him with questions. He is aware of my enormous team of specialists and will be coordinating with them to add pieces to my puzzle. He assured me if he hit anything he felt was important he would be reaching out to his cardio colleagues. So still pretty worried about what is going on, but he’s on it! I will sleep better tonight.
