About the Event
More About Dr. Nikita M Shah, M.D.:
“As a breast surgeon, my responsibility is to advocate for my patients -- to ensure they are receiving the most up-to-date multidisciplinary oncology care in a compassionate manner.”
Nikita M. Shah, M.D., cares about the vulnerable among us. She has traveled to Haiti to help set up primary care clinics near Port-au-Prince. She has done research on the special needs of elderly breast cancer patients and published work on strategies to safely treat cancer in pregnant women. At her core she is “driven by the values instilled in me by my upbringing. I wanted to become part of a profession that helped others and helped further the quality of lives of all, regardless of circumstance.”
Dr. Shah earned her medical degree from University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. She continued her training with residency at New York’s Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine and a breast surgical oncology fellowship at University of Michigan.
A native of Southern California, the bilingual Dr. Shah (English, Gujarati) is happy to be returning home and is excited to join City of Hope, “for both its commitment to patient care and to furthering the field of oncology.”
