Emergency appendectomy. Dr Shouhed's bedside manner is spectacular. My appendectomy went without a hitch. He also made sure that there would be no visible scars! Dr Shouhed went above and beyond for me and I'm grateful to have been in good hands.

With severe abdominal pain, I was absolutely blessed to be referred to Dr. Shouhed to address my medical concerns. From the initial meeting Dr. Shouhed made me feel that he was genuinely interested in not just the diagnosis of my problem, but the treatment as well. He listened and moved quickly with a course of action that ultimately required me to have to have surgery for an intussception. He along with his amazing team of talented colleagues put my mind at ease to move forward. A great Doctor

Dr Shouhed is my chosen surgeon for my up and coming surgery. He has treated me so very well. He listens to my concerns and gets right back to me each time I have questions. I email him with questions. Dr Shouhed is very caring and has an excellent track record and is very well schooled. I trust him with my life.
