Dr. Shahzad goes above and beyond for his patients. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.

Review for Dr. Shahzad

I had a terrible experience. He was unkind, rude, and seemed to be offended when I looked for a second opinion. He made me feel like I was a hypochondriac.

Review for Dr. Hourigan

Staff members are professional and caring. Wait time is short because the practice is well organized. I had knee replacement and it went well. I would recommend this doctor.
