Dr. Shahzad and his staff were polite and professional. The appointment time wasn't rush and the new patient interview/background was thorough. The doctor was also thorough and provided a relaxed and detailed plan of treatment. I found Dr. Shahzad using an online search and selected him based on his reviews. So far, I have nothing but praise for the doctor and his staff.

He was very thorough. Made me feel better because he didn't just assume that I wasn't asymptomatic just because usually a person with my disease doesn't feel pain. I felt like he really listened to me.

I felt as if i wasn't really being listened to. He ordered a bunch of tests - none of which could be done in house and were very expensive. After seeing a different doctor, none of these tests were necessary.

I was very pleased with the staff from the time I walked in the door. The time taken to by Dr. Shahzad to hear my concerns was great. The knowledge shown in my areas of concern pleased me. Now if I can find a primary doc as good as this, I'll be very happy.

He is very personable and explains medical conditions in a manner that is easy to understand. There was a mix up in the appointment. His staff did not inform him that he had a morning appointment. He usually only worked in the afternoon on Mondays, so that is why the long wait. He apologized.
