I have had the good fortune to have Dr. Darshan Shah as my physician.
I believe Dr. Shah has saved my life. For years, countless doctors
missed diagnosing a terminal liver virus of mine, which caused many
related illnesses. Dr. Shah and his P.A. Mike McSween did a blood
analysis, and they could have stopped there to treat a current
illness, but they were very concerned and thorough enough to test
further, thank God. The new test revealed the liver virus and then I
was referred to the appropriate specialist. After six months of
treatment no virus was detected and in two years I can be declared

I was even more amazed in Dr. Shah's diagnostic expertise when he
correctly identified a degenerative shoulder ailment, which required
complete replacement prosthesis surgery. For more than a year I went
to a local neurologist and orthopedic physicians and then up to New
Jersey to see more specialists. Until I went to Dr. Shah and took his
recommended high resolution MRI, I had no hope of a solution to my
pain and useless arm. Dr. Shah's knowledge and high degree of caring
are responsible for me having the use of my arm again.

I will continue to place my medical needs in Dr. Shah's excellent
