    I have worked with Mr. Shakib for over a year now. All of our mutual patients have great things to say about him. He has an efficient practice where patients are seen quickly and appropriate treatment administered with positive outcomes. Mr. Shakib is a great surgeon and colleague to work with and I cannot recommend him more.
