Dr Sachit Shah received his medical degree from Manchester University in England in 1985. After completing his Family Practice residency in England he relocated to Canada in 1990.
After practicing Family Medicine for 5 years in Port Hardy, BC ,during which time he further advanced his medical training by studying Medical Acupuncture at UCLA, he relocated to the Lower Mainland working in Surrey BC as a Family Physician as well as at the Thorson Pain Clinic in North Vancouver.
Never one to sit still, Dr Shah has continued to advance his knowledge in medicine through various other courses and qualifications in fields such as palliative care and pain medicine. It was during this time that his interest in Cosmetic Medicine grew. As a skilled injector of Botox for pain , Dr Shah was not new to using Botox for cosmetic reasons. In the year 2000, he began his cosmetic practice in Surrey, BC with just one laser in a small office.
Over the next few years, Dr Shah replaced his love of computers and gadgets to a love for lasers obtaining more than 20 different medical aesthetic devices to date. He has been known as the “Yoda of lasers” by some for his technical expertise with lasers and he continues to impart this knowledge to other physicians through training. Training in both lasers and non surgical cosmetic procedures has allowed Dr Shah to obtain a unique skill set that allows him to provide a wide array of treatments for skin and body.
In addition to many other medical qualifications and memberships, such as the Canadian Medical Association and the BC Medical Association, A Fellow of the Canadian College of Family Practice, Dr Shah is also a Fellow of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, a Fellow of the Canadian Society of Phlebology and in 2010 , obtained a Diploma in Dermatology through Cardiff University. He continues to advance his knowledge of cosmetic medicine through various courses and meetings throughout the year.
In addition to teaching medical students for family medicine, Dr Shah also teaches other physicians in laser and laser techniques and has been asked by various laser companies for advice on laser settings for procedures.
Although shy and retiring in nature, Dr Shah is immensely proud of his family and will talk about his 3 daughters at any time. In his spare time, Dr Shah likes to do nothing better than spending time with his family and friends, traveling and watching classic English movies and shows.
