This is the second app't with Dr. Shah and going in I knew there would be a wait. Why? His Thoroughness. Everything explained, every question answered, time limit off the exam, NONE (that's why the wait)...

Russell Shah saved my life would recommend him to anybody. Best neurologist in Las Vegas. A great expert on the human spine and head injuries. Extremely helpful and extremely knowledgeable. After severely injuring myself dr. Shaw was able to get my Healthcare on track. The first couple of doctors I saw didn't run the proper tests. Dr. Shah was able to properly diagnose me and run MRIS. He is great at his job and great with his patients. The staff there is courteous and pleasant
