    It was a pleasure to meet and be treated by Dr Shah she is very patient, kind and understanding. I feel I got more out of seeing her than I have ever done with several consultants in the past. Forever grateful.

    Dr Shah is welcoming and friendly whilst maintaining a completely professional approach. She explains things clearly and answers questions clearly, taking time to ensure that I understand what she says and to follow up with anything I'm unclear about. I feel safe in her care and have the utmost confidence in her.

    My experience has been a very positive one. I have been seeing Dr Shah on two counts. Firstly I was referred to her as a consultant rheumatologist for medical issues relating to severe leg pain. Dr Shah is incredibly professional, thorough, empathetic and i have enormous respect for her. She is very informative and having seen numerous doctors of different specialties about my legs before I saw Dr Shah, she was the first doctor to get to the bottom of the medical condition I was seeking help with! I have also seen Dr Shah with regards to my weight issues and she has been once again very kind, concerned and incredibly helpful. The help she has given me has worked beyond expectations and I can not recommend Dr Shah highly enough in both cases! Dr Shah also offers facial aesthetics and if I decide to go down that route, I would without hesitation go to Dr Shah for this too.

    I came to see see Dr Shah last week for treatment for hair thinning due to my chemotherapy which consisted of Microneedling and PRP which I would highly recommend . Dr Shah totally put me at my ease and the experience was pain free due to a pain blocker that was used. Dr Shah made the whole experience very comfortable for me and explained everything to me which made me much more relaxed also. It was so much better than I’d anticipated and would highly recommend it if you’re experiencing any hair loss.
