Patient Comments (2)

Dr Shakin may be a good technician, but he has absolutely no respect for his patients time. I have seen him many times and each time have waited for over an hour. Today I had a 7:30 am appointment, I wasn't called into his room until 8:30 only to learn that he had 3 other 7:30 appointments ahead...more

I would never recommend this doctor no personality, he has no time to explain your condition, he is terrible, he did not even have time to listen.
