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.

Love Dr. Shah! Also a huge fan of MyChart. In the past it was so hard to be available for a call back re test results or things of that nature. It's also an awesome way to send a question and get a response back.
