I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Shah and Lena. Very professional and caring in all they did for me. And my recovery was well ahead of the typical expectations, with ABSOLUTELY NO male related problems.

God Complex - Horrible

I found out that I had a kidney stone incidentally on an x-ray. It wasn't causing me any obvious issues but a doctor friend suggested I go get it checked out. I was referred to Dr. Shah by this friend. At first meeting, Dr. Shah comes across as a gods gift/ a rock star in his his field. I was told in that first meeting that I needed to go through a lithotripsy to destroy this stone or that it would cause me a lot of problems, etc. I didn't know any better at that time and went for a sugery after going through a renal scan. The day of the surgery, he walked in like a 'rock star', zapped my body with this laser and exclaimed to my family that 'we got it!'...that stone is history. I went home in excruciating pain and bleeding from the laser. A couple of weeks follow scan showed the stone exactly in the same place now with scarring around it because of the laser. When I spoke to him in the office, he mentioned that "yeah...it's still there...i spoke to a few fellow docs and we believe we may have to do a surgery to excise it"...um no. After that, he never really wanted to discuss anything. I noticed on my insurance claims that he charged upwards of $50,000 for that 'surgery'. Anyway, he absolutely needed to be sued for malpractice. He is absolutely AWFUL! I went in for a second opinion to an Emory specialist who after looking at the scan first said...well let me go in there laproscopically and see if I can find it and if i do, i'll zap it. He spend 2 hours in my surgery looking for that stone. After I woke up, he said that the stone is nowhere it can be reached and there is no reason to mess with it. He also said it's embedded in your kidney and won't come out and will remain asymptomatic for the rest of my life. There you have it.....a incidental finding led to a doctor that screwed me over to a doctor who patiently took his time to look and see and then decide how to proceed. Looking at Dr. Shah's face makes me angry.

One Star

My family member was diagnosed with prostatic cancer in 2014 and underwent robotic surgery. He was told day of surgery he was "cancer free". Not true. When path came back he ended up having to have radiation. Ever since surgery he has had problems. He has called Dr. Shah's office numerous times to speak to him regarding his symptoms. Dr. Shah has never returned his calls. He had a colonoscopy recently and found out that during his robotic procedure the MD damaged some nerves. I do not recommend robotic surgery. Please get a second opinion and explore other options. Concerned family member....

Great result!

Absolutely 100% positive experience. Robotic prostate removal. Surgery went EXACTLY as planned, recovery was FASTER than I expected. Absolutely none of the surgical side effects men fear so much, no pain meds after surgery just a speedy recovery and no more cancer after 3 full years. I have a friend who had the same surgery in another state with another doctor. My friend had a good result but NOT the quality result I had. Cannot say enough positive about Dr. Shah and the entire staff at Piedmont.
