What People Say About Dr. Emran Sheikh, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
It was my good fortune to have had Dr. Sheikh perform reconstructive surgery on my left hand. Following a gun shot wound from a .45, I received Emergency stabilization in Dallas prior to being tranported to the Trauma Center in Plano, Texas. Dr. Sheik was visiting the area and had been contacted to perform my surgery. The bullet had obliterated the knuckle and Proximal bone in my index finger and it was nearly amputated. Thanks to Dr. Sheikh's surgical skills, I have a functional index finger.

I have neuropathy in my feet. Dr. Sheikh has done nerve release surgery for my feet and I don't have pain in them anymore. I had suffered with this for six years and now I don't even have to take medication for this. He is the only doctor that I have heard of that does this kind of surgery. I feel so fortunate to have found him and I found him on Facebook. My husband has also had the same experience with him. Thank you, Dr. Sheikh.
