Dr Bob treating me last year for a problem I was having with my shoulder. I found him to be very caring and extremely patient explaining his diagnosis and plan of treatment. I have since recommended him to two co workers and they have had the same experiences.

I have been a patient for 20 years and he has always been on point with his diagnoses. He takes the time to explain the condition and the proposed treatments. He has treated all my family including surgery on my sons with outstanding results.

Dr. Sheikh is an excellent doctor, very much interested in our well being. He takes great care of his patients, and he is involved in our condition in general, and not only in orthopedic terms. Friendly, respectful, caring, are all great characteristics you will find in Dr. Sheikh.

Dr Sheikh took care of me when I injured my knee running. I felt very comfortable with his expertise. The office staff was great, it was convenient because they have X-ray and physical therapy right there in the office. It was a great experience overall.

I was having a lot of back pain and was referred to see Dr Sheikh by a friend of mine. After examining me, the doctor went over my diagnosis with me and told me what my treatment options were. I had an injection which helped me so much- and also went to physical therapy right there in the office!...more
