Philosophy Of Care

My philosophy of care includes a comprehensive, scientific approach to weight management. I customize a plan for individual patients with the goal of sustainable lifestyle changes as well as improving health outcomes for my patients.

In my practice, weight is so much more than the number on the scale; I evaluate the complex connection of genetics, biochemistry, hormones, lifestyle and psychosocial factors.

I diagnose and treat the root cause of many medical diseases including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, depression, anxiety, infertility and certain types of cancer.

Weight loss of 5-10% has been shown to positively influence every aspect of our health and prevent metabolic disease. Weight loss can provide a measurable and sustainable difference in the quality of life in my patients, many times when they have found little success elsewhere.

My objective is to achieve not only successful weight loss but also build life-long relationships and support for my patients in a judgement free environment.

I connect with the weight struggle on a personal level and have successfully lost 60 lbs and thus really understand the connection weight plays in every area of our lives. My passion is to help patients achieve their goals as weight loss has been shown to powerfully impact every aspect of our health and wellness.

Amazing!! One of the most supportive and compassionate doctors that I've met. Dr Shah had a great action plan on how to work through potential insurance rejections. I've never had a doctor so willing to go above and beyond to help me find a way to get medication insured. I've had great results so far and really excited to continue to work with her. She even gave me a sample to get me through the timeframe it might take to get through multiple attempts with insurance. Weight management/discussions can be very uncomfortable, this experience was far from that. I felt like I had a cheerleader and support system that wanted to help me get healthy proactively instead of waiting for health issues to come to fruition. I would rate her a 15 on a scale of 1-10.

Dr. Shah is wonderful. She is very encouraging. Also, I had a problem getting my Rx and she called the pharmacy while I was there to help get it straightened out.

Dr. Shah is a caring, highly skilled and knowledgeable doctor. No one wants to have to go to a weight management clinic to have to manage their weight, but Dr. Shah makes it so much easier by making you feel comfortable, heard, cared for, and respected. She explains treatment options clearly and gives plenty of time for you to ask questions or express concerns. Her positive, respectful, and caring approach, empowers me and makes me feel confident I can succeed at losing this weight and get to a much healthier place.
