Dr. Shay was very understanding, he listened well, asked many questions, and gave me options. I would and will be recommending people looking for a GYN to him. It's great to see doctors who really do still care about their patients and what they do! He's a great asset to his team

Dr. Shah is perhaps the best doctor I have ever seen. I always feel heard and supported, and no matter the reason for my visit, I leave feeling like any concerns that I had before the appointment have been addressed in a clear, non-judgemental, and compassionate way.
Oct 11, 2020
This was one of the best appointments I have had with a provider. Dr. Shah was caring, concerned, and I felt that I had all the time I needed to ask questions. I misunderstood at one point and he had to leave and return because of that which probably put him behind in his schedule, but I never felt like he was stressed or annoyed by that. I have great confidence in him.
