    One of the Top Doctors in the area. My care was excellent from the initial visit to discharged after surgery. Even called me at home to see how I was doing.
    Dr. Shenassa is an execellent doctor and surgeon who took his time during my assessment, surgery and follow-up visits to explain what to expect and how to achieve the best outcome. After breaking my wrist which required surgery, I am so thankful to have had Dr. Shenassa as my physician. I would give him the highest recommendation for anyone needing his services.

    in Coral Springs, Florida |
    I have been a patient of Dr. Shenassa for a few years now and I have had nothing but the best of experiences. I have a rare disorder in my wrist and he explained all of my options and made me feel comfortable during all of my visits. When it came time for surgery, I wouldn't consider anyone but Dr. Shenassa. If you're looking for a doctor with understanding, patience and knowledge, I would highly recommend Dr. Shenassa. His entire staff is friendly as well!
