Healing Hands
I hobbled past Dr. Sheikh in the parking lot and he asked if I was coming to see him. My response was "no". However, when the doctor I was there to see recognize that my problem was complex he brought in Dr. Sheikh. After listening to the history regarding nerve issues that has plagued me off-and-on for years, performing his own examination he was able to quickly diagnose the problem. Without delay, he performed surgery, addressing the main problem. To my relief and surprise I'm able to walk again, without assistive devices. I'm still healing and might need another surgery to completely address the problem, but I am forever grateful for Dr. Sheikh. I would recommend him to ANYONE in need of his services.

Dr Sheikh thought outside the box and fixed nerves all down my leg and into my foot. I saw him when he practiced in South Dakota.

I'm so glad I was referred to Dr. Sheikh. I had really bad pain in my legs. He did nerve surgery on both of my legs. The pain is all gone.

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.
