Dr. Shah was professional but supportive and caring and compassionate at the same time. I feel lucky that I received this referral from Dr. Michael Nelson, my primary, and had laser eye surgery preformed by Dr. Shah & [...] was post-op. visit.

I feel the wait time to see the doctor was very long. Over 1 hour wait from check in to provider walking into the room, and to only be there 5-8 minutes with the doctor. I understand where what was needed to be shared to us was short, but shy such a long wait prior??

On [...] woke up with a very painful, itchy & swollen right eye. Called Dr. Shah's office & explained to one of the ladies on the front desk my problem. I asked if I could have an emergency appt. as it was really bothering me. She asked me to hold a couple of minutes then told me to come in at 4:00pm, but I might have to wait a few minutes. When I got to the office (Mission Hills) I waited - for less than 5 minutes. By that time my eye was much worse & I couldn't open it. I didn't have to wait for more than 5 minutes for Dr. Shah, who immediately diagnosed a bad infection, prescribed an antibiotic, phoned the pharmacy - I was there no more than 30 minutes. I was so relieved to be treated in such a professional & understanding manner. Thank you Dr. Shah & staff.
