Dr. Shenassa and his staff were extremely nice and very helpful. He informed me of the options I had for treating a broken bone in my hand and explained the pros and cons for each. After my surgery, Dr. Shenassa personally called me to check on how I was doing. Hopefully I do not have to see him again but if I ever have any other issues, I have no reservations whatsoever in returning to Dr. Shenassa.

I fell and broke both of my arms and the left required surgery. From the first visit I felt confident in the care, concern and time shown to me by Dr Shenassa and his PA Sydney. Always professional and their office staff and x-ray techs are efficient and friendly helping all along the way. I was scheduled for my procedure in a matter of days and healing within 4 days of my accident and I was so grateful for that expediency. Several months on and I'm pleased to say I have no criticisms of my care. They were always on time with appointments as well.

Dr. Shenassa is a very caring individual. He treats each patient in a way that they feel very special. No question is a foolish question. He wants you to be informed of what is happening every step of the way. He walks you through the process with explanations and visuals. Thank you Dr. Shenassa for all of the medical care that you gave me to get me back on the road to recovery.

I had a lump in the palm of my right hand for quite some time but it started to bother me, sometime it swelled and hurt, so I finally decided to have it checked and find out what it was. I went to my insurance website to find a hand surgeon and I selected Dr Shenassa for location and rating and I must say, I made the right decision. Dr Shenassa is very Professional, Courteous and took his time to explain and answer all my questions. In a couple of weeks after my 1st visit, he performed the surge

I had the trapezium bone removed from my left hand due to osteoarthritis. Dr. Shenassa gave me multiple options on things he could do before wanting to perform surgery, but I opted for the surgery since it would have been inevitable anyway. He explained the procedure he would perform in detail and described the lengthy recovery time. It wasn't easy, I knew it would be a good three months before I was better. Everything went as planned and I am more than happy with the way it turned out.

I had surgery on my right ring finger to address a fracture caused by a tumor. The tumor was removed and I received a bone graft to repair the damage to the bone. The surgery went smoothly, the scar from the incision is practically invisible, and I have regained complete use of my hand. I am extremely pleased.

I had been seeing another Dr. about pain in my thumb/wrist but was getting worse. Surgery was a last resort to remove the trapezium bone. The Dr. recommended the old way to do the surgery and I would be out of work for a long time. I went to Dr. Shenassa for a 2nd opinion and he recommended the tightrope procedure. I was skeptical and searched the web without any deciding factors. Dr Shenassa was personable and so encouraging I went with him and it was miracle. He and his staff are amazing!

He is an amazing doctor, he takes his time with his patients . The staff at both the Weston and Pembroke Pines offices are really nice, they are on time with their appointments. I had carpal tunnel surgery done on both wrists and I have no pain at all.

Dr. Shenassa treated me for carpal tunnel in both the left and right hands. I have, and will always continue to recommend him to others. Both surgeries were incredibly easy on me, and there were no surprises as Dr. Shenassa, as well as his staff, explained everything clearly. His staff made all arrangements flawlessly, and I have by now nearly forgotten that I ever suffered from carpal tunnel : ) Thanks so much Dr. Shenassa!
