Prevention and patient education are my main goals. I see children of all ages and adults in my practice. I have the ability to educate my patients and families through open discussions and to work as a team to keep everyone healthy. My other main medical interest is evaluating children and adults for possible immune deficiencies who usually present with history of recurrent infections.
I live in Wilton with my husband and two young daughters. I thrive on balancing my passion for my family life and my medical practice. We have come to love this community over our five years here. It is gratifying for me to be able to serve my community through my allergy practice and to make a difference for many families suffering from allergies. My daughter also has allergies which empowers me on a personal level to provide education and compassion to my patients and their families. I absolutely love to travel abroad to expose my family to different cultures. I also enjoy reading historical fiction novels and doing Pilates/dance.
Dr. Shah is a resident of Wilton. She practices in the Danbury, Norwalk and Ridgefield offices.
"Caring, thoughtful and there for us when we need her, Dr. Shah has been our allergist for 9 years and I can't imagine us seeing anyone else. She's helped increase my son's lung function, reduced cat allergy symptoms and are almost done with peanut desentization. I can't recommended her enough!"
"Dr. Shah is a very caring doctor. She really listens to any question I have. The office staff is wonderful too!"
"Amazing allergist [Dr. Shah]. My son has extreme allergies and she's be terrific with him."
"I have been taking my daughter to see Dr. Shah for a few years now. Dr. Shah is great with her and that makes it so much easier to bring her in for her appointment. I find the staff to be friendly and professional."
