Dr. Shah took the time to listen to my history, my struggle, and my goal. He offered several levels of treatment and suggested the least invasive first. I felt as though he truly listened to me and he gave me the proper care to get me where I want to be.

I am a new patient of Dr Shah’s. His practice impressed me immediately the very first day I called his office and got an appointment that same day. The staff are friendly and courteous helping to keep the experience pleasant. Dr Biren Shah is very professional and empathetic. I have had foot issues my whole life and this year, at 57, was feeling weak, limited and somewhat depressed about my constant foot discomfort. Dr Shah took x rays and told me I could really benefit from custom made orthotics. He listened to my concerns about materials and issues I felt were important for me for a comfortable, effective orthotic. I was pleasantly surprised to receive them in less than the time predicted. That was the first step in my feet’s healing journey with Dr Shah. Although the orthotics helped a great deal, there were forefoot pain issues he addressed with a series of injections. Dr Shah was very patient and explained the procedure in a way that put me at ease and gave me a grasp of how this treatment works. This gave me very dramatic and effective relief of my forefeet pain to the point I feel like a new cyclist. A lifetime pursuit, I had not been able cycle effectively due to pain in my feet that sapped all desire and ability to apply force to the pedals for rides of more than an hour duration. I have been very happy and satisfied with my progress to that point. I had one more foot issue I brought up to Dr Shah. My big toe nails had become ingrown and painful. I was about to replace my cycling shoes because after 40 years, I thought my foot may have gotten a bit larger and with a snug fit, may have outgrown the size and model shoe I have worn for 40 years. Once again, Dr Shah listened and solved my problem. He stressed, again a surgical procedure is not the go to choice for me. Instead, with a sterile set of the heaviest duty human nail clippers I have ever seen, he trimmed my big toe nails with surgical precision at just the correct angles and shape to give me relief. Needless to say, I am very happy to have been accepted as a patient of this young podiatrist. At this point in my life I feel like I have found an excellent podiatrist that I hope to keep for my lifetime.
