Hello and welcome! My name is Dr. Anand K. Shah, M.D. In 2016 I opened Eye Associates of North Atlanta, LLC in Alpharetta, Georgia to provide the highest quality eye care to patients throughout the area. Though I was born in Brooklyn, New York, I consider myself a local since I spent the majority of my childhood in Athens, Georgia.
It was during my high school years there that I became interested in medicine and spent the next 14 years of my life training all over the country in amazing cities like Boston, Detroit, Denver, and Portland, Oregon.
Despite my love of travel, I always knew I wanted to come back to the Southeast and so, in 2009, I came full circle and returned to Atlanta. Since returning, I have acquired valuable clinical and surgical experience with a highly regarded local group practice and most recently, a national healthcare organization.
I am especially passionate about ophthalmology because it is a patient-focused field where I can interact with teens and adults of all ages on a daily basis, and at the same time, apply my technical skills by performing microsurgery to improve vision. Nothing is more rewarding than restoring the sense of sight!
I also treat the full range of eye conditions and diseases and am very proficient in performing cataract surgery. Philosophically, I approach patient care from your perspective and will treat you the same way that I would want my family to be treated. In this way, I am committed to making sure that every aspect of your visit is pleasant and that all of your questions are answered by either myself or my staff.
?I strive to achieve a healthy work-life balance and encourage my patients to do the same. For me, it is through daily walks with my wife after work, running through the park, or just relaxing at home with my two small children. My family and I also enjoy traveling, skiing and hiking. We love to explore the great outdoors which is especially easy in Atlanta where the weather is warm nearly year round! I find that by cultivating my interests outside of work, I am constantly rejuvenated and refreshed.
I look forward to welcoming you to our practice and the opportunity to care for you.
