Biography


My clinical and research interests lie in Integrative Rheumatology, healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole patient, including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapies, including those outside the realm of allopathic medicine. Specifically, I am interested in exploring the impact of diet/nutrition/botanicals on inflammation as it pertains to rheumatic diseases such as gout, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, psoriatic arthritis and other autoimmune conditions, as well as studying the impact of other lifestyle approaches such as mindful meditation, sleep, yoga, stress reduction, etc. on disease burden and quality of life of patients with rheumatic diseases.

Honestly I felt that it was a repeat of the first visit. I found myself repeating what I said last time. Plus some of the thing I mentioned in my message to her wasn't addressed.
Neha Shah from the start was listening and responding excellently. I have written several letters to Stanford commending Dr.Shah for her compassionate and excellent care. RA can be a very painful condition and from the first appointment I had with Dr.Shah, she acted to minimize my pain and get me stabilized. I also like that Dr, Shah uses her knowledge in integrative medicine to treat me. Dr. Shah is one of the best , if not THE BEST,, and smartest MDs I have met.
