Neenad Shah, M.D.
Neenad Shah was born in India, but left before age one, taking his parents with him. After brief sojourns in such exotic locales as England and New Jersey, he settled in rural Pennsylvania where he spent his formative years. Having little else to do, Dr. Shah cultivated interests in music, literature, outdoor recreation, and orthography. His true loves, however, were science and medicine, and he was accepted into Medical School while still in high school. After two years at the Pennsylvania State University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree, Dr. Shah received his M.D. degree from the Jefferson Medical College of the Thomas Jefferson University, in Philadelphia.
After medical school, Dr. Shah completed an internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the Medical Center of Delaware. Realizing his mistake, he then immediately began his residency in Radiation Oncology at Tufts University in Boston. Dr. Shah served as chief resident and received awards for his research in Radiation Oncology from the American Brachytherapy Society, National Comprehensive Cancer Network, and American College of Radiation Oncology. His research interests include prostate cancer, total body irradiation, and accelerated partial breast irradiation. Dr. Shah has presented his data on breast brachytherapy at several national meetings and has published articles in “Cancer” and “Seminars in Radiation Oncology.” Dr. Shah is board certified in both Internal Medicine and Radiation Oncology.
Dr. Shah is a member of several professional organizations, including the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology, American Society for Clinical Oncology, American College of Radiation Oncology, Florida Medical Society, and the Capital Medical Society. He has served on the Board of Directors of, and has been a Medical Advisor for, the American Cancer Society.
Dr. Shah and his wife have two children and an enormous dog, who conspire to keep them busy most of the time. Given a chance, Dr. Shah will try to hit the ski slopes, tickle the ivories, and work on his pilot’s license. He rarely does all three simultaneously.
