I would highly recommend Dr Shah to anyone who has a blood cancer and needs to go through a stem cell transplant. He is very thorough and knowledgeable and truly cares about his patients. He tells you like it is with a sincere and supportive bedside manner. Even under difficult results, he is able to calm your fears with other options. I was lucky that my transplant was a success and even if it weren't, I would never blame Dr Shah or Froedtert hospital. To me, you have been a life saver.

I have had Dr. Shah as my cancer provider for 4 years. He shows great concern for my care, has expert knowledge and answers my questions thoroughly and with my best interests at the fore front. If I didn't think so highly of him, I wouldn't travel 3 and a half hours to be under his superior care.

Dr Shah is very knowledgeable and professional but just as important: he is exceptionally empathetic and has a nurturing and supportive bedside manner. He is always upfront and honest about odds for recovery (I am in remission from leukemia) but at the same time very supportive of the positive progress I have made. He is an outstanding oncologist.

dr. Shah is the most intelligent professional and genuinely kind concerned man I have ever been treated by. I am a nurse myself and I am constantly impressed by not only his professional nature and his incredible knowledge but his ability to apply this to patient care in such an empathetic manner.
