The nurses and the team are totally unprofessional. For measuring my blood pressure one of them even can not put the arm-cuff around my arm. The other missed my vain . They put an instrument, Tempanometer , four times in myear, took measurement and came back that the measurement needs to be repeated . Finally the Dr. Came and said that the tool is NOT working ...Totally unsatisfied .

Dr. Shabti and his assistants are super nice and professional. The annual physicals and labs were thorough and well conducted. However, the front desk services are the worst I’ve ever seen. First, her attitude was very arrogant and inpatient,making me quite uncomfortable. I walked in with smile and greetings, but she just literally said “sign in and take a seat, will call you once it’s your turn.” Out of kindness, I was asking if she needs my insurance card, then she just repeated the same words. Second, she is very unprofessional – 1) She scheduled my next follow up appointment to the wrong doctor; 2) She forgot to charge my co-pay at the time of checkout. Later on when I called back to pay with credit card, she picked up the phone and then put me on hold for more than 15 minutes, without any explanation. And guess what happened after 15 minutes’ of waiting? The phone hang up directly!!! I would love to see the doctor again, but never want to deal with the same front desk lady!

Dr. Shabti has always been professional and courteous. He listens attentively and considers all options before coming to a diagnosis. He made us feel welcome and comfortable with his smile. He also was clear in his analysis of our particularsituation and the route in which he wanted us to proceed. I will always trust Dr. Shabti to give unbiased care. He has never pushed unnecessary medicines or treatments, unlike so many providers these days.

Was able to book an appointment same day, 5 to 10 minute wait, Doctor was in quickly and knew his stuff (I had used Doctors on Demand which did not work out so well so this was an in-person follow-up toremedy my situation). Since I've just moved back into this area, I'm happy to say I've found my new PCP. Location is easy to find as well.

I have clearly asked reception and doctor Raafat before my AETNA annual exam that I am only interested in Annual Exam items that is covered by my insurance. Doctor has said we have done a lot for AETNA and we arecompletely aware ....To my surprise they send me bill saying they have done an HEARING exam which is not part of my annual exam. It is completely bad to do something that was not asked and if you are not sure then check with insurance before telling the patient and sending the bill afterwards.

Had my first appointment with Dr. Shabti for a check up and some other questions regarding my health. The front-desk staff were very friendly and receptive. The nurse had a great attitude and was highly outgoing, and of course Dr. Shabtihimself was courteous, professional, and most of all honest about his recommendations and suggestions. He will become my primary care physician going forward after this visit, and I won't hesitate to recommend him to anyone else!

I was ripped off twice by this shady doctor. I showed up wanting my free wellness visit, and I just found out I was charged for an office visit. When I called my insurance, they said "I must have talked aboutsomething outside of the normal wellness visit" which is not true. I said I was there for a wellness visit and nothing else. What a rip off. Then, their office staff LIED to me and said that I had an abnormality in my blood sample, so I had to come in again in a week to meet with the doctor to discuss the issues. The "abnormality" was slightly elevated cholesterol. Ridiculous. Then on top of that, I was charged ANOTHER office visit fee, based on a lie some stupid secretary told me. I will never be coming back here, and I will be telling everyone how disappointed I was in this office.

I saw a nurse practitioner that was working with the doctor. She was very kind and made me feel comfortable given I just received news that I was pregnant which was unplanned. They took my blood so that I could seehow far along I was and I was told they would call me in 1-2 days. By the 3rd day, I called the office. The receptionist was very unhelpful. I asked her direct questions about having the nurse call me or the doctor in order to follow up. She said that the doctor wouldn't call because he didn't see me, although he did come into the room and speak to me after I received my positive test and helped order my blood test for the gestational age. Also, my appointment was set with the doctor so I feel like if they are billing me for a visit with him, he should be able to help. I asked if they could follow up with the lab since the receptionist said they typically have the result back by now and she told me that they couldn't "because they didn't receive the results back", which clearly made no sense. I felt as if a call to the lab to follow up is something standard that offices should be able to handle and I felt as if she was inconvenienced by me which was very distasteful and not sensitive to me as a patient.

All three visits were awful. The waiting time was more than an hour! The doctors come in for very quick chats and you are done. The clinic was old, and they dont tell you your results over the phone. Will be switching to a different primary doctor for sure.

I arrived a few minutes early and was called back within five minutes of my scheduled appointment time. Dr Shabti and his staff were very professional. I just needed a routine physical and I didn't have any questions or concerns forthe doctor. From the moment they called me back to the time I left was 30 minutes but I never felt like anyone was rushing to get me out the door. The office was clean and comfortable and everyone was very friendly.
