Bingham Memorial Hospital is proud to welcome Tushar, Shah, M.D., to its growing medical staff.
Dr. Shah, originally from Gujarat, India, completed his residency at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center in Paterson, New Jersey, where he specialized in internal medicine. He received his undergraduate degree in India, following which he earned a Masters in biology from St. John’s University in New York, where he also was an adjunct faculty member teaching biological science.
He was elected chief resident in his program at St. Joseph’s, and had an article published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2010. Dr. Shah is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
Dr. Shah is excited about the prospect of being part of Bingham's upcoming hospitalist program.
"This is the best opportunity I could have asked for to join Bingham Memorial and the hospitalist program," says Dr. Shah. "From the first time I visited Bingham, the warm feeling I got and the friendly atmosphere let me know this was the right fit."
Dr. Shah interviewed at five other hospitals and had his mind made up to join another facility when he came here for a visit and interview. He changed his mind after seeing what Bingham has to offer.
"I had such a positive feeling from the moment I first walked in the doors here," he says. "All the equipment is very advanced, there are so many capabilities, yet there is such a comfortable feeling."
At Bingham, Dr. Shah will work with primary care physicians and surgical specialists to provide personalized care for hospitalized patients.
In his spare time, Dr. Shah enjoys spending time with his wife, a physical therapist. Together, they enjoy trying new cuisine, traveling and spending time in the outdoors.
