Dr. Ronil Shah was born and raised in Texas and is licensed in the states of California, Colorado, New York, and Florida.

Dr. Shah attended Northwestern University where he studied Psychology & French and then came back to Texas to attend medical school at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine. Afterward, he made his way to Colorado where he completed his Psychiatry Residency at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Center.

Dr. Shah believes in taking a comprehensive approach to his patients because having a full personal understanding helps direct what the best path for treatment will be versus the standardized template. Dr. Shah completed a psychotherapy-focused track during residency, so he enjoys and is comfortable with integrating various therapy modalities into his practice because he thinks therapy and medications are complementary practices, both critical to a patient’s improvement. Furthermore, given his diverse background and experience with different cultures through travel and language learning, Dr. Shah excels in being mindful of his individual patients’ cultural practices and tries to integrate aspects that make them feel more at ease.

When not seeing patients, Dr. Shah enjoys international travel and learning languages. In order to keep healthy, he tries to maintain a daily meditation practice and is satisfied with being quite mediocre at jiu-jitsu. If he’s not abroad or on the mats, you can generally find him at local coffee spots tinkering with different brewing methods or with his nose buried in a book.
