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.

I have had success with this practice in the past. I would recommend it highly. One thing of note. Doctor Shah said she'd give a referral for a therapist. I was under the impression that I'd get the information on my AVS, which I did, and it would be up to me to contact them, but they called me which caught me by surprise. So, there was some misunderstanding/miscommunication regarding this piece. If the process is that a referral results in the provider calling, then that should be specifically stated, so the patient is expecting a follow up call.

Dr Shah includes me in all the care plan decision making. I feel that my weight loss program has been a partnership, which is why it has worked and been a consistent progress for me. I have not been the patient who has lost tons of weight early on and then gained back. Consistent loss, even through the pandemic is because I embraced Dr Shah's behavioral changes not just using medication.

I was very impressed with this visit from checking in at the front desk until receiving notifications from the office regarding medication prior authorization and test results. I would highly recommend this physician due to not only her care but her staff ... as well as the Edward-Elmhurst team.
