Been a patient of Dr. Shahzad': since December. Awesome doctor who really cares about you. Does not tush, spends a lot of time helping to come up with solutions. He is thorough in his knowledge and overall wants to make you feel better. Songlad my PCP referred me to him last year.
Spring, TX |
I had a colonoscopy, this is the 5th one I have had to undergo. They seem to charge exorbanent fees, it cost me more than all the others put together, and bills that my insurance company refuses to pay keep coming in.
in The Woodlands, TX |
Getting an appointment is difficult due to the fact that they have an answering service answer the phone all day and no one returns your calls until the evening. In addition, my first visit I had to wait for over 2 hours. The office is chaotic and sometimes gives misinformation, so ask more than one person. The doctor himself is wonderful. He is focused and seems to really care about finding appropriate solutions to my health care issues. He has been open to discussing any questions I have had.
in Spring, TX |
Put us at ease and was very nice.

Dr. Shahzad is a kind and gentle GI doctor. He is a great listener, and very thorough and conservative in his approach to medicine. He spent ample amount of time and gave all the answers of my questions. Staff was friendly and helpful, Scheduling was feasible. I felt well taken care of. I give 5 stars for my visit to this office. I will definitely recommend him to all.
in Houston, TX |
If it was positive to give a negative star rating, that would be appropriate. While Dr.Shahzad seems personable and knowledgable, the extreme incompetence evidenced by his office on numerous occasions was enough for me to find another gastroenterologist. The office would never call back in response to questions, when orders were missing for imaging tests, or for prescription refills. Every appointment it was clear there was zero preparation - no chart in file, results hadn't been looked, etc.
in Spring, TX |
Dr. Atif was very helpful and knowledgeable of the procedure that I wanted even though he himself is not yet performing them (will be soon). The staff was helpful, accommodating, and friendly. Definitely recommend!
in Porter, TX |
I appreciate the doctor actively listened to me, asking good questions to understand my needs.

Houston, TX |
I changed insurance companies and found Dr. Shahzad. He agreed I needed a follow up colonoscopy(I was due for a follow up, history of polyps-and now had new bowel symptoms). Was told I could have colonoscopy as early as next week. After looking at my calendar, I phoned office next day and left message. Continued leaving messages to several extensions provided, over a 4 week period. No one responded. I found another doctor to perform my colonoscopy. I hope to have good results.
