Dr shah is definitely the best doctor I’ve been to for my pain. I’ve been to other doctors that haven’t even come close to what Dr shah has done for me. I highly recommend him and I’ve been using him for three yrs now. I also would like to say the front desk girls Yami and Ebony are so awesome. They always go out of there from scheduling appointments and checking me and thanks to everyone at the office you all do a terrific job.

My experience at SamWell was the best doctor's office experience I have ever had. From the moment I walked in, everyone at the front desk were kind & efficient. The medical assistants brought me into an exam room quickly with no wait time. Dr. Shah listened & answered my questions & concerns without rushing the visit. Knowing a doctor is listening & sympathizes with you is very important to someone in pain. I was even given a knee brace to hold me over until I completed my MRI. 10/10 experience, I would refer this practice to anyone that wants a thorough doctor with great bedside manner & a plan.

Chronic pain in my knee and back stole my joy of movement, leaving me sidelined from the activities I loved. But at SamWell Institute for Pain Management, under the exceptional care of Dr. Jay Shah+, I found not just relief, but an immediate transformation. Dr. Shah is a master of his craft. His expertise and commitment to minimally invasive solutions shone through with two precise surgical procedures that zapped away 95% of my pain. The entire staff is a symphony of professionalism, courtesy, and efficiency. Every interaction, from pre-surgery consultations to post-operative check-ins, was met with genuine care and attentiveness. Communication was impeccable, with no questions left unanswered and every step clearly explained. I never felt lost or in the dark, which made the entire process infinitely less stressful. My 5-star rating is no mere formality; it's a heartfelt expression of gratitude for the gift they've given me: the freedom to move, to sweat, to live again.

Dr Shah saved my life and continues to. As a 30 yr old female multiple doctors have tried to schedule back fusions with me, also other surgeries. Dr shah listens and suggests different approaches. I am now 32 back into the gym full time and playing sports. I cannot thank him enough for saving my life.

Dr. Ko and EVERYONE at this office/Practice is wonderful. I recently completed the trial for a spinal stimulation for back and neuropathy and looking forward to having it done permanently. DR. Ko, Zack from Nevro HFX and everyone at this practice really care about me and my pain. So nice to find a place like this after almost 20 years of chronic pain and major back surgery. Thanks again everyone at SamWell!!! Nurses, Dr's, Office, HFX, etc... Noel Brady

I’m so glad I found Dr. Shah. I was in so much neck and back pain. All of my time was spent in bed with a heating pad. I thought I was going to have to go on disability. Dr. Shah is a great doctor with a nice bedside manner. An expert in his field. He introduced me to a treatment (RFA) that did not involve medication or opioids. He was not on my insurance but worked out an arrangement that didn’t break the bank. I highly recommend him and his staff. Great Team!

Dr. Shah is awesome! After my first visit I knew this was the right place to address my back issues. I had my procedure on 2/2/23 to correct four herniated discs. Woke up this morning pain free for the first in months. They even provide car service to and from the place where the procedure took place, which I did not have to find my own ride. Dr. Shah and staff are friendly and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Shah for your back issues. Thank you!

Dr. Shah is outstanding! He takes the extra step to speak on abnormalities that are outside the normal purview of pain management and advises follow up care with your primary care physician. Because of his dedication and attention to detail, I was able to find out that my medication needed to be adjusted for my thyroid. My symptoms had been overlooked by my endocrinologist! Keep up the great work! Thank you.

I am usually very tense when I go to doctor appointments. In this case I must say that it was very pleasant, and I learned a lot about my medical issue. From the moment I stepped into the office the staff was very pleasant. Then after speaking with Dr. Shah I knew I was in the right place. He took his time to listen to me and to explain what my treatments would be. I must say that I am feeling much better thanks to Dr. Shah.

In my experience, it’s the best medical care one can hope for. The entire staff is kind and helpful. I’m incredibly fortunate and grateful to have found Dr. Shah. Yes, he’s thorough, does all the appropriate testing, and communicates your options perfectly. He also has the problem solving skills I associate with individuals holding a Ph. D in physics or mathematics, incredible compassion, the breadth of knowledge and willingness to work outside his specific field, and stays up to date with new and effective treatments. If you’ve been searching for a a doctor who can help you, you’ve found him.

I must say my 16 year old son has been seeing Dr Shah for over one year now for chronic pain. I have nothing but positive things to say about him and his staff. Unfortunately my son has many medical issues that I am not sure will ever be fully diagnosed (he has seen dozens of doctors), but Dr Shah has told us both that he wants to focus on helping to alleviate any of the pain. He is very thorough and truly listens. I have never had a doctor that not only listens to my concerns, but also my son's the way he does. He will thoroughly answer all of my questions, and I always have a ton. He is very open to talking about all options for treatments. He is not your typical pill pusher. I have not had one bad experience here with him or the staff!! Is my son pain free, no- but he will NEVER be pain free! Has the pain decreased....YES! Dr. Shah has stopped most of his migraines and is working on his pain decreasing in his back. I feel like I owe Dr. Shah everything!

From the moment I came in I felt like I was in great hands by Dr. Shah & his staff. Everyone was really courteous, looked happy to be there, and all my appointments were prompt & quick. The wrist injection Dr. Shah performed left me feeling better than ever. He assured me throughout the whole process I would be pain free, and thankfully I am. I can finally get back to working out & lifting like I used to. I send all my thanks to SamWell Pain!
