Dr. Shah became interested in medicine as a profession through a series of volunteer programs in high school that allowed her to work with children and their families. These programs inspired her to cultivate a deeper interest in pediatrics and pursue a career as a physician.
“What I enjoy most about being a physician is making a difference in the daily life of children and being able to follow them through the years as infants, young children and teenagers,” she says.
