Dr. Shah is great
Dr is ALWAYS so patient and kind and speaks to my son as well as to me
Dr. Shah is the best there is. She wasn't my sons assigned MD when he was hospitalized, but after working with Dr. Shah and her team IP for a week, we knew she was who we wanted treating our son. She is patient, approachable, extremely knowledgeable and cares about what the child and parent experience. Dr. Shah helped something very scary and worrisome into something we could manage in a way that helped our child's overall well-being. She's the only MD I've dealt with in any system who takes the time to call if there is an issue. I'd never complain about any wait time to see her. She takes her time to get things right, she's thorough, she's been a life-saver for my family. Best choice I ever made was to asked to have my son switched to her care. Thank you, Dr. Shah. You take care of our most precious gift. What you have done and how you've treated us, has made our lives better.
It was great
Dr Shah went above and beyond what I ever could have expected. She was very knowledgeable and caring. She spent a lot of time with us and I will highly recommend her to anyone looking for a pediatric GI.
my daughter and i love Dr Shah she has always done whats best foe my child...
she was a little late for our appointment. But that is because she takes great care with her patients. She make sure to listen to them and I'm stays with them as long as she needs until all of their concerns and questions are met or answered.
Very good experience.
Dr. Shah is a very thorough, compassionate and knowledgeable doctor. My daughter saw her as a GI specialist , and we were both very impressed with the visit. Thank you!
my son sees many doctors and Dr. Shal is by far the best!! she shows true compassion and understanding and we always come up with a successful plan to help the health of my child.
we absolutely love and trust this provider
First visit,imorrssed with Staff and the Doctor was awesome ,very concerned , great listening skills and very informative .Concerns and E planned before doing anything to the child .
Dr. Shah spends a good amount of time with our daughter,. Unfortunately after almost a year, she is unable to resolve the issue she is having. Also, the fact that we are only able to return every 4 months or more since there are no appointments available is a problem especially when the doctor asks for your return in 2 -3 months. This seems to be an issue with all providers at Children's Hospital.
Very impressed with the amount of time and thoroughness shown to us by Dr Shaw
Dr. Shah is an excellent doctor. She explained everything and if very organized when setting up appt, tests and prescriptions needed.
this was my sons first appointment with dr shah. she was very thorough with her exam and questions but was still down to earth and made us feel very confident in her abilities.
I have been very pleased with the care I receive with my care provider. I would recommend her to anyone dealing with the same issue I am experiencing. A doctor's visit is never fun, but my care provider, nurses, and office staff do their best to make my visit a pleasant one.
Dr Shah was truly one of the best pediatric Drs that I have taken any of my children to.
dr shah is wonderful and very caring
She explained everything to us very well and was very helpful.
we really like this doctor.
it was a great experience. the Dr. was very thorough in all procedures. she was very gentle and caring. my child loved her and trusted her.
Dr. Shah is an amazing doctor. We couldn't ask for a better doctor.
We had another excellent visit with Dr. Shah. She also picked up on some wheezing that our daughter was having, ordered an x-ray, and then called both our family and our pediatrician that evening to follow-up. We appreciate her care & concern for our whole kiddo, not just the GI issues. She is top notch!
Provider was lovely and empathetic.
Dr. Shah is outstanding. She has a great rapport with my daughter, is very knowledgeable and patient, and always takes time to listen and to explain her recommendations.

We LOVE Dr. Sapana Shah!!!!
Dr. Shah and her staff are wonderful, absolutely no complaints.
This was our first experience with this physician. She was wonderful; very responsive, thorough, and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this physician and practice.
This was one of the best experiences that we've ever had at a doctor's office. Our appointment was prompt and both the receptionist and nurse were very kind. Dr. Shah was amazing! Our daughter wouldn't stop talking about her on our ride home. She made what could have been an uncomfortable visit very easy. She explained things very well both to us and to our daughter. We feel like we have a plan to help our daughter feel better.
Dr. Shah is an amazing provider with the utmost care for my child. She spends more than enough time talking with her and myself to make sure we leave feeling well cared for and understanding all care options.
I really liked dr shah. She listened and talked with my child and related to him and made him feel comfortable. She is an amazing dr.
This was our first visit with Dr. Shah! She made my teenage daughter feel comfortable and was very knowledgable. So happy to have been recommended to her. She seems like she would like to get to the bottom of her problem so she is not in pain any longer. The doctors have brushed off our concerns. would definitely recommend her.
This was our first appointment, and it was like Dr. Shaahan had known her for a period of time. I was so happy with how she put my daughter at ease even when she told us that my daughter needed to have a ct scan and mri.
Wonderful doctor. The best my child has had.
The Doctor was extremely competent and spent a lot of time with us trying to help my son understand his condition.
Dr Shah graciously took a lot of time to meet with us, and discuss our concerns. we are thrilled that chp sent her to Seattle to attend Dr. Suskind's seminar!! thank you so much!!
Dr. Shaw is very good and also referred other services based on my question. She educates you very well regarding the medical problem.
Love Dr Shah. She takes the time to be with you as a patient and explains well. She was in our waiting room by 30 mins from our scheduled time.
Dr. Shah was excellent. She took her time listening and did not rush us during the appointment.
Dr. Shah is fantastic with children! We adore her!!
We love Dr. Shah and would not trust any other dr with our daughter.
I was very impressed by Dr Shah and the staff at Children's Hospital.
we are very happy to have found Dr. Shah , she is exceptional in her field !!!
She is the best dr I have seen in a very long time
excellent visit. all questions answered.
I was very pleased. Dr. Shah has gone above and beyond in helping find answers for my daughter. Even if it's a simple treatment she's checking many things to make sure they couldn't be hurting my child. I'm so happy we came to her!
dr. shah and nurse Bonnie treated us very professional and made us well at ease. love dr. shah! finally on our way to fixing our son's aissues.
I loved how the doctor spoke to my teenager. She used words that she understood and made her feel comfortable during an embarrassing exam. She was great!
We love Dr. Shah, she's very good with children and parents! She definitely knows what she is talking about. Very happy with her care.
I was impressed with how much time Dr. Shah spent with us, and that she respected our questions.
Dr. Shah is an excellent doctor and one that I would strongly recommend. She was very informative and took much time with us during our appointment in helping us figure out together the best possible care for our daughter.
We were greeted warmly and quickly and registered. Before I could finish filling out the paperwork, we were taken back into the office. The doctor came in promptly and was very thorough in asking questions and explaining procedures to my child. We have follow up testing to do and we are presently waiting for contact to us in setting those up. We are pleased with the care and concern that was shown.
Dr. Shaw is awesome!
Loved the Doctor
Dr. Shah was amazing! My son was a bit nervous about this appointment and we had several questions, but Dr. Shah took time with us to make sure that we had everything we needed. What I loved most about our appointment with Dr. Shah was the way that she addressed questions and answers directly to my son instead of only speaking to me. This small practice made a huge impact. It demonstrated a great deal of respect for my son and his feelings. I will definitely reccommend Dr. Shah to other parents.
Excellent doctor!! Love her!
Dr Shah is very detailed and explains things very well. She also explains things well to my child also.
Really liked the doctor. Really felt like my child mattered and it wasn't just business. My daughter loved this doctor.
