He is an excellent communicator. Very knowledgeable and skilful surgeon. I am a retired GP and I have had a lot of experience with consultants. Mr Shah is one of the best. I chose him because earlier I happened accompany my 97-year-old father-in-law to an appointment with Mr Shah , and I was very impressed with his bedside manner towards this elderly gentleman.
From the moment that Doctor Shah and his team diagnosed my problem and subsequently operated I was completely satisfied with everything. I felt I was in very safe hands.

Fantastic listener and highly competent
I have been and are currently treated by the Ophthalmology Dept of Chase Farm Hospital. I recently had a eye procedure carried out by and exceptionally caring and competent team lead by consultant Mr. Ameet Shah. Mr. A. Shah took much care in explaining and clarifying all the questions I had before the procedure and the reason for the procedure to be carried out. The attention and care continues with post-operation follow-up appointments with Mr. A Shah, checking on the operation results, required medication and taking care explaining the progress made together with the expected results.
After 10 years of treatment for glaucoma, on Mr Shah's first consultation he suggested a Trabeculectomy which has completely changed my health and saved my eye sight. He gave a thorough explanation of the surgery and after care needed. The surgery and the subsequent monitoring has been superb. Prior to surgery I used many eye drops morning and evening. This has completely stopped, as well as all the side effects such as dry mouth, stinging and itchy eyes.
