From Dr. Shah,
“I am thrilled to care for the patients of the Austin and greater Austin community. It is never easy to visit a Colon and Rectal Surgeon and it is therefore my goal to make your visit and care with me as comfortable and seamless as possible. Colorectal care can range from simple to complex and it is important to discuss all modalities of treatment and come to a mutual decision as to a plan of care. I have a particular interest in colon as well as rectal cancer, anorectal disorders, diverticular disease, and operative management of inflammatory bowel disease. I am committed to providing excellent, state-of-the-art care in the evaluation and treatment of all diseases and disorders affecting the small intestine, colon, rectum and anus.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter exploring all that Austin has to offer. I also enjoy biking, photography, golf, and tennis.”
