Dr. Shehebar provided me with long and much-needed relief. After consulting two other doctors, which resulted in costly procedures that did not solve my problem, I am so grateful for Dr. Shehebar for finally helping me find comfort after a year+ of discomfort and pain. He has unbelievable bedside manner and was so caring and attentive for something that was very personal and embarrassing to have to deal with.

Dr. Shehebar, I thrust him from the moment of the first visit I scheduled a month ago, September 2018. He is so friendly, professional and straightforward decision maker. When I went to my first appointment we walked in with my wife, and she was pregnant, my third appointment the first thing he asked when I walked in' where is my new bornbaby and wife, he makes you feel like from family, It is so great feeling. I truly appreciate it. Our consultation is not finished, we will continue. Thank You.

Dr. Shehebar is a very nice doctor and helped me with my health concerns and the questions I had regarding what I was experiencing. He was very patient with me and in a follow up appointment, helped ease any anxiety I had. He helped me when I was experiencing extreme discomfort and within a few weeks I was feeling back to normal. I would highly recommend any one who needs a colon & rectal doctor to see Dr. Shehebar.

I was scheduled for a colo-rectal surgery but postponed it in lieu of a 2nd opinion from Dr. Shehebar. His diagnosis differed from what i had been told by another doctor, and he explained it in terms that i easily understood. I am now being treated in a minimally invasive fashion by Dr. Shehebart, hat has a high rate of success. Dr. Shehebar's expertise has spared me from undergoing a much more invasive procedure that was surely unnecessary.

Dr. Shehbar is a treasure for humankind. He is Knowledgeable, attentive, sophisticated, very normal and he has bedside manners. I can’t express enough my gratitude to him. I had two procedure/ surgeries done by him and he couldn’t have done a better job. He answered all my (stupid) questions and he returned my phone calls immediately. Best Dr. I have ever had. Period.

I cannot rate Dr. Shehebar highly enough! He is always available to answer all of my questions, exceedingly attentive to my concerns, highly knowledgeable, extremely patient, and very gentle. In short, he has every quality one seeks in a surgeon. He explains everything clearly, in a way that the patient is able to comprehend. We feel very blessed to have found Dr. Shehebar at a very difficult time. He has made a terrible and scary diagnosis manageable.

COMPASSION, PATIENCE, EXTREMELY PERSONAL and CARING ... MY son had his colon removed by another surgeon. We were looking for some answers. Dr. Shehebar, humbly, offered us his time and his expertise. He explained to us the process and what needed to occur in order for his healing to take place. He offered us peace of mind, which no other doctor was able to do. Dr. Shehebah also followed up with us and was able to get us to the place we needed to be. I cannot be more appreciative...
