He was informed about my condition and had looked at test results. I felt cared for and knew what to do in the future.


Very good.


Dr. Shah clearly explained my condition, the type of cancer I was dealing with. He explained the HIPEC surgery procedures and explained why it was the best treatment for me. He detailed the procedure and any possible effects or complications that could arise. He spoke with confidence that the procedure would be successful. He visited me each day after the HIPEC surgery. He listened to my concerns and reassured me. I trust his judgement. Follow up appointments have been positive and informative. I have tremendous belief in his abilities.
