Specialties

Dr. Ankit A Shah has the following 3 specialties

  • Obstetrics & Gynecology
  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr.Shah and his team are probably the best. I'm very impressed with his teams efficient approach to my heath care needs. I'm only 35 and was very worried about everything. I can't express how easy they made this procedure seem. No pain no discomfort the staff and Dr. Shah are as good as it gets. Don't hesitate to have this group do any heart procedure your truly in great hands.

Trust and Confidence

I was the first bypass surgery at NWCH in 1991. I have been under Dr. Shah's care since 2004, when he performed emergency insertion of a stent in one of my clogged lines. Since then, he has closely followed my condition with sincere interest and concern. I have the utmost confidence and trust in him and highly recommend him to anyone in need.
