Dr. Shah is member of the Ear, Nose and Throat Department at Children’s Health℠. She and her staff diagnose and treat hundreds of children each week who present with the simplest symptoms to the most complex diseases, from sore throats and ear aches to hearing and speech disorders, airway problems, sinus disease and tumors of the head and neck.

Dr. Shah had other career aspirations in mind before doing volunteer work in a primary care clinic during her freshman year in college.

“I had many career interests in college, from being a radio personality to studying international law and linguistics,” she says. “Volunteering in the clinic was a way for me to practice my Spanish. But the more I interacted with patients, the more interested I became in a career in medicine.”

She earned her medical degree from Tulane University School of Medicine and served as an otolaryngology resident at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. She completed a pediatric otolaryngology fellowship at UT Southwestern Medical Center.

She is an assistant professor of Otolaryngology at UT Southwestern with clinical interests in pediatric airway, head and neck, ear and sinus/skull base disease. Her research interests include hearing loss in cystic fibrosis patients with aminoglycoside exposure, chronic sinusitis in cystic fibrosis patients and intracranial complications of acute sinusitis. She is a member of the American Academy of Otolaryngology and is certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology.

Outside of her practice, Dr. Shah enjoys family time with her husband and two sons. When she has free time, she enjoys water sports, running and yoga, as well as live music and dancing.
