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.

In 36 years, I have never met a doctor like Dr Shah. Her bedside manner, energy, attention to detail, knowledge of her specialty and the most importantly her time is beyond. She answered all my questions with care and asked key questions to make sure we were setting myself up for success. I wish she could be my doctor for everything but I'll take what I can get!

The doctor left the room without tell me she was done, if I have any question or even buy. I thought she will be back since she didn't give me any sign that the visit like a simple By! I waited almost 15 min in the room before nurse ... entered the room telling me that I was done. I was shocked!
