For nearly two decades, Soloman Shah, MD, has practiced as a physician at Gastrointestinal Medicine Associates, PC, a part of the Privia Medical Group in Fairfax, Virginia. Previously recognized as one of the state’s top doctors, Dr. Soloman Shah is a member of the American College of Gastroenterology, which recently published a statement on a recommendation by the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) prescribing low-dose aspirin to prevent cardiovascular disease and colorectal cancer in adults.
