Dr. Shahzad is by far the best doctor I’ve ever had. After years of GI and countless other doctors, it was ONLY Dr. Shahzad who finally figured out what was wrong with me and fixed it! Thank you Dr. Shahzad for changing my life!

Kind and caring Doctor and staff.
I have been seeing Dr. Shahzad for 5+ years but only 3 visits with excellent diagnoses. He is always concerned and asks questing to determine best plan. His staff is very attentive and sensitivities to my needs. I am 75 and after my procedure, his staff calls to check on me and reminds me to contact them if I have any issues.

Amazingly Thorough!
I googled and chose to see Dr. Shahzad about 4 years ago. He was very thorough, attentive and didn’t waste any time diagnosing and treating my GI issues. He broke everything down in a manner that was understandable for me. His office staff are very helpful and have amazing bedside manner. I highly recommend Dr. Shahzad and his practice!

Dr Shahzad found the root of a gastric issue I’ve struggled with for years. He told me he would figure out what was causing it and if he could not, he’d find a treatment to make me feel better regardless. He found the issue other Drs did not and my life is 1000% improved. He also helped me shop RX prices and found my prescription for 1/4 of the price I was paying. He is lighthearted and positive and truly cares. Cannot recommend him enough.

Doesn’t care about patients
I Have been having pretty chronic issues that I’ve seen many doctors about. Dr Shahzad saw me for 2 mins and immediately sent me out for tests without really listening to what I had to say. I did what he said, and I went to get testing done immediately. However, Dr. Shahzad’s office team refused to work with me to get them organized. All I wanted to do is see if they received the test results so I could schedule a follow up appt! Wouldn’t call me back after calling for days. Took several calls over days and days to even get the office people to care. After I finally got a hold of them to schedule an appointment, they could care absolutely LESS. I show up to my appointment after 3 weeks of waiting, only to be kept waiting for over an hour and a half. I had to walk out of the patient room to ask where the doctor was. Turns out, he’s TWO HOURS BEHIND. And they didn’t tell anyone, & again couldn’t care less. I rescheduled & At my next appt, THEY DID IT AGAIN! They don’t care. Avoid this Dr

Diagnosed with gastritis, reflux, hiatal hernia. Went on PPI and the PPI after 2-3 weeks made my throat start burning bad. Finally got off meds after 60 days. Throat never got better the Dr never would pursue finding out what was happening. It's been a year and throat still is sore almost everyday. Been to an ENT they were no help, finally seeing a surgeon. Dr. Shahzad said I would not be a candidate for surgery because the medicine didn't help me, both surgeons I have seen disagree and so does the new GI. Very disappointed to have been "released" from care when I was clearly not OK.

I have seen MANY doctors over the last 2 years that would stop at an ultrasound and CT scan if they didn't see anything. I've been told by others I had stomach virus, stomach ulcers, without any proof. The pain continued and I found Dr. Shahzad because of his amazing reviews. He is the ONLY Doctor to not give up and find the root of my problem. My HIDA scan that he ordered revealed the issue was in fact my gallbladder. I recently had it removed and it is a world of difference and pain free. He has excellent bedside manners and doesn't rush his appointments. He truly cares and is dedicated to finding root causes instead of guessing and pushing meds. If you're in question about seeing him, do yourself a favor and book an appointment. You won't regret it!!!
