He has a special interest in the increasingly prevalent fatty liver disease, which allows him to work closely with patients to educate them about symptom management and making lifestyle changes that will improve their health and wellbeing.

After more than two decades of practice, Dr. Shah added training in liver transplant to expand his knowledge of liver disease and offer his patients a “one-stop” resource for truly comprehensive care.

Dr. Shah is a member of the American College of Gastroenterology, American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, and American Association for the Study of Liver Disease.

Among Dr. Shah’s current research interests is the development of an algorithm assessing the impact of gastrointestinal disease management on readmission rates.

Dr. Shah brings a personalized approach to working with patients and to teaching the next generation of physician scientists the classic skills of careful listening and patient examination. Throughout his career, he has emphasized the fundamental importance of balancing scientific expertise with empathy and compassion.
