What People Say About Dr. Karim Shakoor, MD
Reply
PATIENT BEWARE: If you schedule a procedure with Dr. Shakoor, he may be in-network, however his facility and anesthesiologist probably aren't. They state they tell you this prior to your procedure, but I wasn't told until after when I questioned the bill. They also only provide general information to your insurance company during pre-certification, and you will have surprise charges after the procedure and tell you that you are ultimately responsible for understanding your own insurance.

He saved my life...Dr. Shakoor is annoyingly thorough. I went to him for a routine colonoscopy and couldn't finish the prep cleansing. Dr. Shakoor said he wanted me to come back when I could do the entire process successfully. He gave me some anti nausea meds and I was able to complete the prep the second time. During the colonoscopy he noticed a slight discoloration and biopsied it. It turned out he'd discovered appendiceal cancer at an early enough stage to be treatable. He's my hero.
