    Dr. Shah has been the doctor looking after one of my daughters for the last two and a half years. From our very first meeting Dr. Shah’s warm yet very professional manner out us at ease. Not only did she explain everything in detail but also explained the reasons behind the choice for certain treatments. She also listens and understood our concerns and responded to them in a manner that we as lay people could understand. Dr. Shah is extremely responsive and readily available as and when required and that is a great quality to have in ones doctor. Our daughter has benefitted greatly by being under Dr. Shah’s care.

    I have been visiting Dr Shah since my childhood. I have Thalassemia ( Major) and she has been looking after for a very long time. Her compassion and kindness has made me feel welcomed and comfortable enough to talk to her about anything freely. She is extremely knowledgeable, humble and always ready to answer my queries. Her professionalism and her passion for her work has been evident during our time together. I am from Pakistan and I go to London yearly for my routine checkups. She was always there to support me during both of my very complicated pregnancies.
