Dr. Shallal provides excellent healthcare. His small practice allows him to spend actual time with his patients. It's a good feeling to actually talk with your doctor rather than the 5 minute exam you get with most doctors. He is always prompt with his appointments and I trust him with my health implicitly.

Very informative and extremely knowledgeable. After going to one other doctor who just ran test after test not able to come to a conclusion I went to Dr.Shallal and he nailed down my issues by running the right test to confirm his hypothesis. I followed his instructions and medications and feel 100% better. Will absolutely see him again.
