Dr Shakir is an excellent doctor. He shows great compassion and displays the best bedside manner. He thoroughly evaluated the problem in both of my knees and resolved my issue. He has an amazing professional way about him combined with his intelligence, making him a fantastic choice for a patient in excruciating pain. (And I don't take pain medicine) Dr Shakir has the patience that's necessary to treat difficult patients. I'm so pleased to have found such a fantastic Orthopedic doctor!

Dr. Shakir did hip replacement surgery 2 weeks ago on my left hip. Surgery lasted a couple of hour and within several hours out of recovery I was up and walking with no pain at all. My family was amazed. Came home two days later and have not had any pain since the surgery. What a relief to get rid of that pain before replacement. Loved Dr. Sahkir and his concern for you as a patient. Would recommend him to anyone.

I was treated for my right knee on 18th Jan, 2017. (Miniscus tear surgery). Dr. Shakir did an amazing job with the surgery, I felt no pain during or after the treatment. I was back on feet within two days. The staff and the doctor himself were extremely friendly and welcoming. I definitely recommend going to this doctor. 5 STAR!

I would not recommend Dr. Shakir to my friends, family, or my worst enemy. I had gone to him for a knee injury. Both appointments I waited over a half hour and both visits he did not sit with me for more than 5-7 minutes. I traveled a half hour for him. 2 weeks after my second visit with him i broke my knee walking at work and was told if he had not given me a cortisone shot I probably would have known my knee wasn't healthy. Needless to say I found a new doctor. I advise you to also.

Negligent staff, negligent doctor.

I went to Dr. Shakir with two wrist that every single bone in both wrists were completely broken. Not one bone in either wrist was still in tact. He did surgery on both with pins, plates, screws and other hardware. Then sent me to physical therapy. I saw the before surgery X-rays and after. He did an amazing job and I have more movement and use of my hands than I ever thought possible. He is the best orthopedic surgeon on the east coast.
