Excellent, Dr. Shenassa is one of the most caring providers I have ever met, and I have met with many providers. He takes the time to communicate with patients and their families, he is at the patient's bed site when needed, regardless of the time of the day. THANK YOU, DR. SHENASSA for taking such good care of my sister. You are one of the best.

For the last 10 plus years, I was constantly plagued by urethral stricture issues. Several urologists has tried to help me by using either the urethrotomy or dilation methods but to no avail. I almost gave up any hope until I found Dr. Shenassa a year ago. He applied an unconventional method to approach the problem after his careful study. Consequently, it has worked well for me and I'm indeed grateful to him. He is a genius and a great urologist. I have no reservations to recommend him.

Office intake smooth. Despite having a hospital emergency to deal with doctor was able to see me with only slight delay (the reason for waiting time). History very complete, exam well done with clear explanation. Very smart guy. First urologist I met who already knew about urachal cyst/syndrome and associated cancer risk. CT scan ordered. VERY IMPORTANT IF YOU LIVE IN LA AREA: easy to find, free parking. Near freeway exits & on-ramps. Across from Target/CVS for prescriptions WOW 5/5 stars !!!

I would highly recommend Dr. Shenassa to anyone who needs a urologist. He is the best in his specialty! He is very knowledgeable, up to date with modern technology and truly cares about his patients. He takes his time to go over all your options before starting any treatment, explains all risks and benefits and lets you decide what is the best option for you. He is an amazing doctor and a talented surgeon.

Dr. Shenassa is the most amazing and talented surgeon ever. I've never seen any doctor who is as compassionate and caring. For my father we saw 4 other doctors before We went w/ Dr Shenassa. His bedside manners are second to none. If you need any urology work done, Dr. Shenassa is the only one to see. My father is extremely happy w/ him

Dr. Shenassa saved my life. After performing a TURP operation on me (which was a very good idea), his office kept on insisting that I come in for a follow up appointment. That checkup, which included a ultrasound scan (which is not usually done) discovered a malignant tumor on my kidney. Short story: Had kidney and tumor removed, no further treatment needed. Very good bedside manner and very good surgeon. I'm in great health.

He's very open minded. He is a g, he gives you the facts as he understands them and conveys them to the patient in simplistic terms. He gives you choices, he lets you know about the risks, as well as the benefits. I'm so impressed by his real interest and kindness. He's a real and genuine person, a real Dr in my book

Dr Shenassa has been fantastic in terms of treating my kidney stone conservatively. I am grateful to him to have done the management in a very methodical fashion, without rushing me in to the operating room, for the small stone I had. Much kudos actually should go to his Nurse Practitioner who saw me first.

Dr. Shenassa is my doctor-specialist for almost 10 years now. A very good doctor. He answers all my medical questions and concerns. He gives good medical advices. I haven't seen him in a bad mood which is very good to a patient like me who ask so many questions. I have a lot of doctors (specialists in different fields and primary) and I consider him as the best. I can't recall I had a single problem with him. His staff also treats me very well and, they are very courteous.

I had the most absolute worst experience of my life at this doctors office! I was referred by my general physician. My regular doctor said to call the office and make sure they are in network for your insurance before you make an appointment. I called and his staff assured me that they were in network. Now I receive a ridiculously high bill from Dr Shenassa ! I called to speak to the staff and now they say that they accept my insurance but that they never said they were in network!!!!

I never got in to see the doctor. Though I had an appointment, he was called away for emergency surgery. I met with the nurse practitioner instead and since then have had a very difficult time getting another appointment, speaking to the nurse practitioner and making any progress on my injury. The front desk staff never seem to know what's going on.

We had a very bad experience with Dr. Shenassa. On one occasion, after my father was diagnosed with cancer, in the last week of his life, Dr. Shenassa suggested a procedure, told my father he would be there the next day,told staff not to feed him or give him water, only to reschedule again, & again, and then have an associate of his show up 24hr late to say there is no way this procedure can be done. My father suffered, was dehydrated and went 24hr without food or water, as a result of this Dr.
