Dr. Shehebar is a master in his field. He's upfront and clear with this explanations. He responds in a fairly quick manner and he doesn't mind answering the same questions over and over again. He also has a good sense of humor. When you think of a doctor you can trust - he is one of them. I trusted him for my first major surgery and I'm very satisfied with the results.

Operated on my mother for her colorectal bleeding condition a month ago. Surgery went very well and my mother is well on the way to full recovery. I was very impressed how responsive Dr Shehebar was in the fist week following my mother's discharge from the hospital. Whenever we had a question or a concern, he would get back to us very quickly and would patiently address all of our concerns. Excellent doctor! Would highly recommend.

Dr. Shehebar was my second opinion for a metastatic cancer in both my colon and pelvis but my only choice for the surgery. I can't imagine a surgeon better prepared for what proved a difficult procedure and more skilled at achieving the best possible outcome. Today I am not only cancer-free but confident in going forward under Dr. Shehebar's care.

Dr. Shehebar is absolutely awesome doctor and surgeon. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable, caring and very open doctor. Since my first visit to him he made me feel very comfortable, even I was very scared with my forthcoming surgery. He performed a major surgery on me and did all his best to do it in minimally invasive way. It was very important for me, because during previous operation surgeons had to open me because of peritonitis. I was so happy that Dr. Shehebar managed to do the second surgery in laparoscopic way. During my staying in hospital he visited me every day, even after his office appointments. I could be in contact with him through the chat during my healing process. He answered all my questions, gave me recommendations, so I felt myself always under his supervision. He really is very caring about his patients. I am very grateful to him and really appreciate everything he did for me. Thank you Dr. Shehebar!
