Patient Comments (1)
in Conyers, GA |
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.
