Waited 1 hr 45 mins to see him 5 mins. To get results. No apology from staff or the Dr. himself for the long wait. Just a sigh from the front desk person when I told her I needed an appt when it is slower since I waited this long for a 5 mins conversation.

After having triple bypass surgery Dr. Shaikh came to ICU to see how I was doing. He is a very thoughtful and caring doctor. After being discharged I made a follow up appointment with his office at Christus Santa Rosa off 151. His staff was excellent and very little waiting time on the day of my appointment. We talked about my concerns( and I was scared about several things) and he put me at ease with his answers.

Have no trust whatsoever in this doctor. I went to him because I had been having more-than-normal tachycardia episodes. He said EKG showed I had had minor heart attack which I confirmed with my cardiologist in Mobile, AL was NOT THE CASE AT ALL. Doctor would NOT release my medical records to cardiologist in Mobile, AL even after I signed release and requested them 3 times myself and Mobile cardiologist requested them 2 times, so I had to have all tests repeated at my own expense.

Dr Shaikh is very knowledgeable in his field. By the number of patients I see at his office, at Christus Santa Rosa,at Westover Hills, it is evident that he treats a large number of patients. With a huge workload he may not spend a sufficient amount of time with each individual patient. However, I feel comfortable that he will make a sound judgment in my level of care. One thing that I am not satisfied with is that I cannot see an online report of the results of each visit nor a written cy.
