I was in car accident that resulted
in a hematoma on left leg, and broken collar bone. The swelling in left leg
was so severe there was no feeling in the front of my leg from the knee to my
ankle and I was in a lot of pain at the swelling site of hematoma. Dr. Shah
removed the huge hematoma and then he put a metal plate and seven screws in my
Since my surgery I have feeling back in my left leg and
collar bone and I am back to work! If wasn't for Dr. Shah and his wonderful
staff would still in pain and not back to work.
Dr. Shah is an amazing
doctor, he explains things and he called after each surgery himself to check
and see how I was doing!
I highly recommend RBJC to anyone looking for
help. They explained every option they had to offer and worked me into their
schedule as I needed them to, the entire staff and the operation at the Sugar
Land office should be used in every office! They are so efficient and
friendly, I had such a wonderful experience!
"I would like to thank Dr. Shah for the excellent
care I received when I injured my wrist. He was very thorough with his
explanation of what was going on and really put my mind at ease. It was a busy
day in the office but I never felt rushed or that he was in a hurry. He
definitely left me and my husband with a wonderful impression of him. I will
not hesitate to return to Dr. Shah when I have future bouts of clumsiness!
Thanks, Dr. Shah!"

When I came in to see you I didn't know what was wrong with my foot
and ankle. I just knew that I had lost my explosion and it would still hurt
after I iced it down. My team was heading into the state playoffs and I wanted
to be ready. Even more importantly, I didn't want to have any lingering
injuries when I start playing basketball for Boise State University next
Since coming to Richmond Bone & Joint and getting my ankle and
foot treated, everything has been fine. My team went to the regional finals in
the playoffs, and I haven't had a bit of pain while playing. Dr. Shah, you're
Taylor, PG -#21
My name is Connor Thompson and I tore anterior cruciate ligament in my knee
leaving me unable to run or compete in sports. I saw Dr. Vishal Shah at the
Richmond Bone & Joint Clinic and found him to be very friendly and
personable. He did a fantastic job on my knee. After my ACL repair surgery, I
felt more confident and quicker then I was even before the injury!
employees at Richmond Bone & Joint Clinic treated me on a very personal
level and I found the new clinic facility to be top notch.
I want to
thank Dr. Shah, who brought me back to competing at a high level in a shorter
time than most thought possible. I recommend Dr. Shah to all of my friends.
My son had a growth spur
fracture of the knee and was not able to walk or bend his knee. He was in so
much pain he said it felt as though a truck ran over his knee. Dr. Shah placed
him in a knee mobilize for 6 weeks. Le'Mante has always been actively involved
in sports and was rather sad that he would not be attending tournaments, but he
wanted to get better!
Dr. Shah was awesome!! He took his time with us
explaining what Le'Mante's condition was and how long it would take to get
better. He was so detailed with us in reference to what a growth spur fracture
was. Being a concerned mother I had so many questions but Dr. Shah took his
time and explained in detail what triggered the fracture. Once he made Le'Mante
feel good in spite of the pain I realized then he was such an awesome doctor
and wish there were more like him. I wouldn't want this circumstance to happen
again, but if it should we know where to go! The clinic was very clean and
everyone was so courteous and professional!!
I am a 66 year male in relatively good shape my
entire life. I had an accident at work that left me a torn meniscus. I had
tremendous pain in my right knee and was out of work for 18 weeks. During this
time, I began to walk with a stiff knee causing me problems with shin splints.
Dr. Shah was very thorough in explaining to me what my injury was and worked
with me every step of the way to ensure that i would receive the best medical
care possible. His bed side manner and professionalism are second to none. He
took the time and went out of his way to make me feel comfortable with the
procedure. I had surgery on March 22nd and within 2 days I could feel the
difference in my knee. Dr. Shah gained the trust and respect of my family as
well. As I was in recovery, he took the time to explain to my loved ones the
results of my surgery in layman terms. I would recommend Dr. Shah and RBJC to
anyone seeking orthopedic help.
