I went to an appointment and I was not admitted even after waiting for 45 minutes past the original appointment time. Then I was told to wait another 30-35 minutes. Horrible experience, horrible staff. The overbooking is ridiculous here, having an appointment means literally nothing.

I actually wound up seeing Dr. Mina Shaker, as the two brothers and father of the practice rotate, but couldn't have been happier with my first appointment. He was very polite and kind; took his time and considered what I hadto say instead of rushing me. Would definitely recommend.

Prior to making my appointment, I read reviews before making my choice on a new PCP. After my visit with Dr.Shaker, I couldn’t have been happier. I wasn’t rushed and he took the time to listen and even offer advice onthings I should look out for potentially in the future. Great energy and experience, thank you Dr.Shaker.
