Zaheer A Shah

also known as Zaheer A. Shah, MD, JD, "Doc" Shah

About me

I am a Brown University trained, board certified medical doctor with nearly 20 years experience as an emergency room physician, hospitalist, urgent care doctor, and internist. In addition, I am an attorney who advocates for the injured of Arizona. I use every ounce of my combined medical and legal training to fight for my clients. I focus my practice on general personal injury, motorcycle accidents, traumatic brain injuries, and medical malpractice. I use my medical knowledge to explain to insurance companies the complexities of my client's injury and as an attorney I work zealously to maximize my client's compensation. Every potential client gets an initial free, no obligation consultation and there are no out-of-pocket fees for my clients.
