Doctors like Dr Harris Shaikh are few and far between, very hard to find! He studied my entire medical history before I arrived at his office for my first visit. During my visit I felt so relieved, he already had a plan for my care with a complete knowledge of the severity of my injuries & pain to my spine. He is very professional, intelligent, thorough, yet comforting & listens to my concerns,I'm a very LUCKY disabled person to have him as my doctor. Thank you Dr Harris Shaikh!
