Dr Sheikh is an excellent physician. He listened to all my concerns and was knowledgeable with my condition. He recommended the best options for my issues and made me feel very comfortable. I was very happy with him and the entire staff.
Miami, FL |
Definitely I would recommend this excellent doctor. Great bedside manner and knowledgeable as well. I liked his sense of humor which put me at ease.
in Deerfield Beach, FL |
Dr. Sheikh took care of my elderly grandfather when he fell and broke a hip. He was kind and compassionate. It was a difficult surgery as my grandfather has a heart condition but he came through it largely due to his skill level. I don't think anyone else could have pulled it off. Dr. Sheikh is the reason why at 94 he can still walk (with a walker)- thank you!
in Ft Lauderdale fl |
Have been to this doctor and this office for years. Always kind, and responsive. He answers my questions. He is knowledgeable He does expect me to part of my own care
in Pembroke Pines |
My son had a car accident, I was able to see the doctor first Appointment Monday morning after weekend accident. It was extremely comforting to find a Doctor Who is extremely caring., I would highly recommend him

I was able to get an appt same day and the doctor examined my knee closely and knew the right treatment felt better within days.

I have seen Dr. Sheikh on numerous occasions for back and knee issues. He is a great doctor, he explained the problems to me and answered all of my questions. Since then I feel amazing. Thank you Dr. Sheikh for your amazing bedside manner and special attention you gave me when I needed it the most. I would recommend Dr. Sheikh to all who seek a fantastic surgeon.
Miami, FL |
My experience with the Dr. Babak Sheikh was very unpleasant, that man is very rude, his intention is not to help an early improvement to his patients, instead extend an igneous treatment to get more money from his patients. He talks too loudly and he does not like to be asked about another type of treatment. He seems angry all the time.
Very knowledgeable recognizes who you are great treatment
Hallandale, FL |
Dr. Sheikh does not listen what a patient has to say. Every time we would try to ask a question, Dr. Sheikh would cut us off trying to answer before we finish asking. He would ask our son a question and also answer the question for our son. In my opinion a good doctor gathers the facts first before jumping into a conclusion. We are immediately taking our son to another doctor so that he may be properly treated.
in Hollywood, FL |
Dt Sheikh is a Great doctor. Educates you on your diagnosis note the office is very busy so is all the doctors that are good so if you are looking for fast service , us the drive thru at burger king show up on time with proper paper work , this man is a doctor that care , i thank him for his talent Ray
in Sunny Isles, FL |
Worst experience. Dr Babak Sheik is a rude and disrespectful person. Doesn't respect the patient. I waited mor than 2 hours. The appointment last less than 8 min. He insulted my wife calling her a 350 pounds lady. He didn't want to give me the prescription because he said '' I read minds, Iyou wont stop excercising, so I will not waste the medicine'' do a went to a Dr or to a mind reader??? This is ridiculous!!! At the end he turned around and shake my hand.... I never saw a Dr so disrespectful
in Ft Lauderdale,FL |
Looks like he is knowledgeable. He goes very fast, none of my appointments with him lasted for more than 10 minutes. I just continued appointments with him just to not to switch providers in middle. I felt like he is little arrogant, I don't recommend. Note on the office: The patient billing department is worst. They over charge you, keep an eye. Currently, I'm going thru a big hassle with them for billing dispute.
in Pembroke Pines, FL |
Excellent doctor, very thorough with great bedside manner. I've seen a few orthopedic surgeons for my fractured elbow, but none even compared to this doctor in terms of knowledge and kindness.
in Lauderdale lakes |
I felt like he was no helpful at all. Was not sympathetic to the issues that u was having. Did not ask me any questions about the pain I was feeling he automatically assumed that it was all one thing and gave me a long story about him trying to relate. I will never see him again and wouldn't recommend him to any one
in Florida |
In all my life, I have never been to such an unprofessional, demeaning, and condescending doctor. I put doctor in quotes because I am baffled as to how someone like this could be one. Doesn't care about your best interest as a patient, is just in this career for the money. If you are looking for a REAL physician to assess your needs as a patient, DO NOT go to BABAK SHEIKH. Worst experience I have ever had. Didn't answer any of my questions and has no interest in helping patients.
in Tamarac |
He's very detail and a great knowledgeable doctor.
in Pembroke Pines, FL |
I have no problem with Dr. Sheikh but after having my appointment rescheduled 3 times as the Dr. was not available, no fault of mine. When they were finally able to see me the front desk denied my visit because I was six days past due my premium which I have 90 days in which to pay. CSR of Coventry advised that I am active but they continue to refuse treatment unless I paid full cost citing that they won't get paid from the Ins. My advise, not the place to go if your premium is 1 day late.

Simply Great!

Great doctor. Very friendly. Educates you on your diagnosis.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
This doctor has a genuine concern for the welfare of his patients.I would see him again and recommend him to my friends and family.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
I came in with knee pain and the office got me in to see him right away. He impressed me with his knowledge and candor regarding the causes of my pain and my options. His treatment plan was easy to follow and thanks to him my knee is much better.
