To everyone at the HBO and Wound Center-Thank you for showing your love and kindness to me and all the others who come to your clinic. Each one of you showed how true you are to your jobs.
“I cannot speak highly enough about the care he received there. Dr. Jayesh Shah was professional, kind and even funny, and nurses were compassionate and patient while doing their jobs with excellence. Thanks to the Northeast Baptist Wound Healing Center, my father’s gaping wounds have completely closed and he is able to wear regular shoes for the first time in almost a year.”
“I can’t say thank you enough. It’s a miracle. Thank you for saving my leg.”
Recently we have seen and cared for a most challenging case of multiple soft tissue infections and blood cancer occurring simultaneously in the same patient. Aggressive care by the wound care center included expert physician consultation and treatment to include hyperbarics and wound care marked by empathy and extraordinary attention to detail. I congratulate the leadership of NEB Wound Care facility and the hospital for putting together such an admirable group of individuals for this new service. Forgive my baseball metaphor, but appropriate for this time of the year, they hit a home run.”
Dr. Shah has extensive knowledge of wound care and how to achieve the highest rate of wound healing. I can highly recommend him as a person of high integrity, an innovative and quality physician. I’m glad for his willingness to share with his community to provide opportunities for professional growth and improved patient care.
Dr. Shah is an excellent physician who really cares about his patients. His compassion for excellence is obvious in everything that he does. He is also a joy to work with and is always considerate and pleasant to his peers and staff members.
Dr. Shah is an excellent wound care doctor who understands why chronic wounds do not heal and will implement treatment protocols that are cost effective and timely. His bed side manner is second to none and he is also a very good mentor to staff, fellow doctors, and allied professionals.
