I am Dr.Aziz patient for almost 2 years for myasthenia gravis. He knows this problem thoroughly well. He treated me so well to bring my life back to near normal. I really appreciate his method of treatment.

I saw another neurologist who put me through numerous blood tests, MRI, biopsy and could not figure out what was wrong with me. I went to Dr. Shaibani and in 15 minutes he gave me a diagnosis. I did ONE blood test to confirm this. So great to know there are doctors who know what they are doing and can give results. Excellent!

I was not impressed at all. Horrible experience. He got angry at logical questions from me. He told my referring doctor that I was rude to him when in fact he was cocky and rude right off the bat. I only seen him twice and will never go back. He even lied on my records stating that I asked him to write my LTD insurance company a letter stating that I had ALS. I had other people with me on both visits that will testify that I did not. His EMG test showed NO ALS and he told me that I didn't have it. Now just over one year later, I was diagnosed with it. Save Your Money, Don't Waste it here.

Dr Shaibani has been my doctor for 3 years. I have Myasthenia Gravis and Dr Shaibani has made my life better than I thought it would be in this period. Within only a few months he had my symptoms under control and today I am almost back to 100% and he has monitored my case closely, advising what meds or preventive shots I can or cannot take. He is now reducing my treatment to get back to as close to normal as possible. He responds to my emails in a very timely manner.

This is a compassionate and caring physician who is obviously quite attentive in developing information and in communication with his patient as he develops his diagnosis of the patient’s problems and condition.

Dr. Shaibani has done a very good job of managing my husband’s Myasthenia Gravis over the past 4 years. His bedside manner is warmer than our first few visits, but I trust him and appreciate his prompt response to telephone calls when we are experiencing a problem

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.

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!

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.
