Ratings for Dr. Nirav A. Shah
My shoulder and knee doctor. He is the best, I have also been to Rush and Northwestern. This guy is better. He has excellent communication. I can't believe how many people seek out him for their surgeries. Definitely nobody else in Orlando park, new Lennox, palos, Tinley that is better than him. He has fixed both of my shoulders after someone else at northwestern did a bad job. I have my life back! Thank you dr shah!
Fixed our soccer player daughter ACL. She plays year round and we got a few opinions and went with Dr. Shah. He has the best bedside manner and also gave us the most options for what type of graft rehabilitation and recovery. He is top of class and has more knowledge then other ACL doctors. He is the best one out of the bunch. She is doing excellent after surgery.
fixed two ligaments in my new. was back to running swimming biking in 3 months. few more months of conditioning and i should be back to soccer. I am a division I athlete and he came highly recommended by my trainer. I've done very well so far. Thinking about a career in medicine because of him. Excellent surgeon.
Repaired my rotator cuff in my shoulder that I injured at work. He walked me through the process even went out of his way to discuss my care with my attorney when I asked if he would and it helped my workers compensation claim go though as fast as possible. Surgery went great and I had an excellent result and am back to work and playing baseball with my kids without any problems. I will send all my friends and family to him. He has offices in Palos Heights and Oak Lawn, but I drove all the way from Mokena to see him because he is worth it.
Daughter tore her ACL she was nervous (me too!) he was very sensitive and surgery went well and she is doing better. He is great and did a minimally invasive surgery to repair her knee. We have met many soccer families who go to him for their knee injuries. They all have positive experiences with this doctor. Highly recommended.
Replaced my ACL. Spent an hour before surgery with me giving over every detail and question - even more than I had or expected. He is truly passionate and cares if his patients do well. Surgery took 29 minutes and I'm back to playing basketball.
Dr. Shah did an excellent job on a scope rotator cuff surgery on my husband and also has done an advance shoulder replacement on both of my shoulders. we are lucky to have him as our surgeon. he answers all of our questions, is very knowledgeable and we refer him to our family and friends as his surgical outcomes are excellent.
