What clients say about me

"I learned about Dr. Shah's expertise while researching about proctograms ('defecography' for Americans) on the Internet, and was very happy to find out that he offers second opinions through Diagnose.me. Dr. Shah confirmed my original diagnosis, but more importantly, he filled in the gaps in my understanding of my condition and carefully answered all of my questions. Now, with a more complete picture of what I am dealing with, I feel better prepared to discuss treatment options with my doctor. Thank you Dr. Shah for your kindness and professionalism. "

- CT colonography to look for colonic cancer and polyps

    Dr Shah's report is clear and extensive, and has given me a very in depth understanding of my health situation.
    I am very grateful for his expertise,which will help me to make important decisions about any future surgery.
    I also asked Dr Shah to explain some points in less biological terms for my better understanding and his reply was very polite and informative.
