What People Say About Dr. Aziz Shaibani, MD

Dr Shaibani diagnosed my husband on his very first visit to Houston. He has a rare muscle disease (LEMS). Dr Shaibani has been on time with all his visits and the staff is alway so kind. He always takes time to answer any question we have about LEMS and the treatment. My husband had a concern on a weekend and he email to ask Dr Shaibani about it and he responded to his email within 20 minutes of him sending it. I think that type care is unheard of in the medical field. So thankful our Doctor

Dr Shaibani has been my doctor for almost 9 years. I have myasthenia Gravis and Dr Shaibani has made my life better than I thought it would be. He has worked my case closely with me ( keeping me in the loop ) making adjustments as needed. I have all the faith in the world in his ability to help now and in the future.

Horrible experience with this doctor when he did a muscle biopsy for me with no pain meds, sedation and no time for the numbing medicine to kick in. He is offended by people that feel pain and he takes it out on the patient. I recommend no one to see him, but consider yourself warned if you decide to. No bedside manner at all and the staff is just as bad as they would not document my pain complaints after the procedure.

Dr Shaibani was able to diagnose what was wrong that day! I had been to eight other doctors and had two surgeries that were not needed, before finally getting here and finding out what was wrong! Thank you so much Dr. Shaibani!

Thank you Dr Shaibani for your genuine care. You have a wonderful staff, comfortable waiting room for the company I brought with me, I didn't have to wait 5 minutes. And a special thanks to one of your assistants Muammar (I hope I spelled his name right), great young man;-).

My husband has been seeing Dr. Shaibani for only a little over a month. During the first 5 weeks, he has had 3 appointments. Dr. Shaibani has always been professional, extremely knowledgeable, and focused on my husband's problems immediately. His staff is friendly, helpful, and patient! We feel very fortunate that my husband was referred to Dr. Shaibani by another excellent neurologist!

I was having problems with optical myasthenia gravis. Dr. Shaibani has been able to help me with advice and a list of what medicines to avoid for my other doctors to follow. He is easy to talk to and takes time for all your questions.

Dr. Shaibani and his office staff are wonderful. He took the time to explain everything to my mother in terms she could understand. He let us do her testing in our hometown so we didn't have to make so many trips to Houston. His staff have been friendly, and very helpful in setting up appointments and home health services.

My mom’s first visit to see Dr. Shaibani was in August 2017, she has a muscle disease that crippled her. After testing, we were told it is treatable! Dr. Shaibani and his staff have been excellent to her! We see him once a month for treatment since October 2017.... And he got my mom back walking again, she has her independance. I can’t explain the joy I feel when I see my mom walking again! Thanks so much DR. SHAIBANI -priceless!!!

Dr Aziz Shaibani treated me for Myasthenia Gravis. He was very caring and so was his office staff. I went to him 4 years ago I could not see, breath or swallow. He did everything stat to save my life without him I would not be alive today. My doctor in Port Arthur Tx took me off all my medicine in 2 months I was worst then when I was first treated. I could not ask for a better doctor then Dr. Aziz Shaibani. Everyone I know that has MG are still having problems and I have been released.

Dr.Shaibani is a very good neurologist. He's treated me for an incurable muscle disease for the last 11 yrs. Always there for me & my wife when we have any questions. I was put in hospital out of the Houston area, & he conversed with the Dr. & us on a daily basis , just to be sure all was going as it should. He's the ONLY Specialist,or DR. That's ever done that!!

I was referred to Dr. Shaibani by my local neurologist. I did not want to go but I am so glad I went. Dr. Shaibani spent a lot of time with me and listened to me. After four years I finally received a diagnosis. He and his staff were very pleasant.
