Shahab Aftahi MD

Dr. Aftahi received his medical degree from Ross University in 1984, at which point he moved to New Jersey, where he completed his residency in Internal Medicine at Bergen County Hospital, followed by his fellowship in Gastroenterology and Nutrition at the Albany Medical College.

Dr. Aftahi served as a faculty member at Albany Medical College for several years after completing his fellowship. He founded Estrella Gastroenterology in 1999 and has been serving the people of the Valley ever since.

Dr. Aftahi is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in both Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. He is a member of the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, the Phoenix Society of Gastroenterology and the Maricopa County Medical Society.

Dr. Aftahi is well-versed in all standard endoscopic procedures and has a special interest in nutrition and Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

After many years of providing Gastrointestinal care in the West  
Valley Community, I have decided to close my clinic for good. If you have  
an ongoing need for care please find a new Gastroenterologist to 
establish care. If you need a copy of your medical records you may

Wish you all health and happiness.
