Horrible if there was a negative star rating I would choose that. The most unprofessional staff I have ever encountered. They are extremely rude. Tried speaking to ”office manager” Monique and she is the most unprofessional individual. How she works with the public is crazy. Would not recommend anyone to enter any of his facilities.

Dr. Sheikh is the most compassionate doctor I have ever met. He was a light in the darkest hours of my daughter's health crisis and he did all he could to help us out in our moments of despair. Thank you Doctor!

My baby is diagnosed as failure to thrive. She had already spent a week in the hospital with no results when I was referred to Dr. Sheikh. This doctor knew exactly the problem she was having. He said she needed to go back to the hospit but that she would be under his care there. He came everyday (including Sat., Sun. and Thanksgiving) to check on her and make sure she was progressing She is now recovering excellently. This man is an excellent gi. I would highly recommend him.

REALLY?! What a unprofessional practice, such disregard for pediatric patients! Ridiculous- Ajaz Sheikh should be stripped of his physician title as he obviously does not care about patients!!!

Had a referral for my young son and got nothing but the run around from the office staff for over 2 days just to then be told the quota for new patients had been reached that morning even though I had talked to them over 24 hours before and that I just need to get a different referral from his doctor. Thanks for not only making it inconvenient for me but making my already sick child wait over 2 weeks to even get another appointment.

Followed up with Dr. Sheikh each time my son showed difficulty. Failed to listen to concerns I had and symptoms. Another specialist diagnosed my son in the area of Dr. Sheikh specialty.My last visit was due to the office not sending in a pre authorization for medication. I was worn out due to my less than 2 month old being sick and without needed medication. I followed a suggestion by the office manager assuming she is an extension of Dr. Sheikh, then accused of bouncing my son when I was only

I had a very bad experience with Dr. Sheikh. He gave no second option. He just wants to make money he does not care about his patients.
