Dr Shah has been exceptionally patient in providing answers to my many questions and request for data to aid in decision making. He carefully tailored his responses to research specific to my age group. He combines a direct yet compassionate approach that is both respected and appreciated. The PA and RNs on his team are equally skilled. Without exception they each provide compassionate, competent care with a sincere focus on optimizing patient care. It's a terrific team.

Cannot say enough about Dr. Shah! Due to some circumstances somewhat related to my initial diagnosis I now have other issues that he continues to work through with me and refer me to other professionals for follow up care. He is patient, knowledgeable and just all-around has the qualities you'd like to see in all people!

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.
