Alexandria, VA |
He is an excellent surgeon. Everything went as planned and he was very helpful with answering my questions.
in Alexandria, VA |
Dr. Alshkaki did my emergency appendectomy. I never met him until before the surgery. He immediately made me feel comfortable in his abilities. He described what he was going to do, what may transpire and what I could expect. After surgery, he met with my husband and explained what he found and how the surgery progressed. He was understanding in my desire to be discharged as soon as feasible. He was great during my follow-up visit. I feel fortunate that Dr. Alshkaki conducted my surgery

The office staff were very professional and helpful ,The Dr Saved My Life ,waiting period is a little long but he was very busy
Alexandria, VA |
I would not recommend this doctor ever.He was my surgeon for an appendectomy and he didn't meet with me to answer my questions. I waited 5 1/2 hours after I was to have been discharged just to talk to him, and praised him for the surgery, but said I would have liked to have talked to him previously.He cut me off, saying i was 'arrogant' to criticize him,that if i had a complaint to file it with the hospital, and if I had medical questions, to call his office for an appt. Totally unprofessional!!
