Falsifies medical records and mistreats patients possibly for purpose of billing. Ask for your medical records and see for yourself.

I have been seeing Dr Shoaib for many years now.He is a very competent and caring doctor. Takes the time to listen and answers questions.yes some visits I end up waiting sometime for close to an hour. One time I told him I was upset about this and he explained he was in the hospital with an emergency. I understand that and plan that I may not be getting out of there quickly. Also everytime he is delayed he apologizes .

The doctor was scheduled to arrive to the clinic at 11:30 but arrived at 12:30 instead. I was annoyed and asked another patient about his arrival who agreed that he always arrives late to the clinic. Dr. Shoaib overheard us, because after I was called in for consultation he went on to humiliate me behind closed doors. He demanded to know what I had spoken to the other patient about, and I called the other patient, who defended me. He threatened to deny me and I left. Can't trust a man like him.

My daughter was seen several years ago and not only did he help my daughter he took me on as a patient. The Dr.did not have to do that ,because he does not treat adults ,but he saved my life by treating me and I will always be greatful to the Dr.

I certainly would recommend Dr Shoaib to others. Sometimes his schedule runs behind, but he is also on call for hospital emergencies. Staff is also incredibly helpful.
