She was extremely rude and abrasive. Filled out a dozen pieces of paper before my visit she obviously did not read ahead of time. I am not just saying any of this because she refused to fill medication my retired doctorprescribed. It was her tone and interaction. She would ask questions, attempted to answer then she would stop me and ask me the same question. Told her I did not have any other way to explain it other than what I just said she interrupted me on before I could finish a sentence.

She is one of those types of docs you need to not judge too quickly. She comes across rather abrupt at first, but I am glad I continued to see her. She is very professional and business-like, but she is agood listener and is very sympathetic when appropriate. She even hugged me on one visit as I was leaving, saying she was sorry I had to be going through such a difficult time. She seems to know her stuff as far as meds go. Overall a good, helpful experience.

She immediately acuused me of being addicted to my anti-anxiety medication which I hadn't taken in over 3 months. I told her my normal dosage which is FAR lower than the maximum and she looked at me like a drug addict.Besides, she's not a very happy person so why would I want her to treat me?

I was very pleased with my first visit with Dr. Rubina Shakil. Working in a doctors office myself, I understand how important it is to have a doctor that is not only very knowledgable and informative about your condition, but isalso genuinely concerned about your well-being. I definitely recommend her!

Don't go see this doctor, she was not any help to me. She lies about anything. I guess she is afraid of losing her green card or visa! Don't waste your time or effort.

I only waited about 10minutes for my appointment. Shockingly though, she saw 2 other patients during that time. On my first visit I think she spent about 10minutes with me and she stared at a computer screen the whole time. Secondappointment lasted maybe 5 minutes and she didn't like what I had to say so she basically yelled at me. Horrible demeanor, horrible attitude. Won't be back.

Dr. Shakil is a nice person. However, make sure if it's your first visit or you have not visit her for longer than 6 month to book a 45 minutes appointment. Her staff is not great at caching this kind ofstuff. I had a really bad experience; however Dr. Shakil was kind enough to make accommodate me.

I think Dr. Shakil has excellent bedside manner and very good clinical skills. However, she refused to fill out paper work or even write one sentence on a piece of paper stating that I could only work 20 hours a week.Therefore, I was unable to collect partial disability. I have had several hospitalizations for my mental illness including one in December 2013 and she agreed I should only work part-time. I don't understand why she refused to write down what she told me in person. This has worsened my anxiety and put a lot of stresses on me. Now, I have to find a new psychiatrist.

I have made multiple appointments with this dr and every time they tell me that they did not receive my ZocDoc appt info and cannot see me. They have cancelled on me 4 times now and even though I'm NOT anew patient, they say I have to fill out 20 pages of patient info AGAIN, and will not let me see the therapist without seeing the psychiatrist again, even though I do not need any medication!! That is ALL Dr Shakil does, is hand out scripts! She doesn't listen, I can be a better psych to my own self. Wouldn't recommend to anyone!

I will not be going back to this Dr. She required that I send her all completed paperwork more than a week before my appointment, yet it was very obvious that she hadn't read a single word of it. I toldher that I was there because I wanted to manage my problems without any medication. She told me that I will probably always have panic attacks, wrote me a prescription for 2 medicines, and told me I needed to get counseling. It was my understanding that Psychiatrist are supposed to counsel people. She had no interest in doing anything other than writing prescriptions.
