This doctor doesn't put himself out or make extra effort. He doesn't think outside the box. Look elsewhere for medical help.

Dr Shahinian is extremely kind and compassionate, but always professional. He is an expert in his field and I know I am receiving quality care whenever I am in his care. He has a friendly and highly trained staff. He needs to clone "Dory" his office manager, so she can be in both offices at once! Dory has been a blessing and major help to me during my time of need. She has made countless calls on my behalf and never made me feel like a burden (even though I was). I can't say enough-THANK YOU!

Not sure where to begin on how much I love this office! Staff are some of my favorite people, they are so kind and go above and beyond, always. And Dr. Shahinian, wow! he is absolutely incredible. So patient, kind, thorough and always gives me his undivided attention, which is saying a lot for such a busy guy! My husband and I just love this office.
