Amazing Dr., unfortunately, he needs a new front desk staff. They are very rude and need learn how to speak to patients.

. My first appointment with Dr. Shakiba was very informative; he took the time to go over the details of my condition as well as options that were best for me. I felt at ease after his thorough explanations, honest, and knowledgeable responses to all me questions. I knew immediately he was the doctor for me. He is truly the best of the best. He is an excellent surgeon with great bedside manner, and takes great care of his patients throughout every step of the way. Dr. Shakiba is one in million!!

On January 17, 2017, Dr. Shakiba saved me from pain and suffering. I was crying and praying to God to help me find someone who can relief my pain. After reviewing a few doctors on-line, I became scared because they had bad reviews, until I read Dr.Shakiba reviews. I thought it sounds to good to be true. So I did what any normal person would do, I emailed him. He quickly responded 10 min and 6 hours later he performed surgery on me. Thank you for being the best in what you do! Amazing Doctor

I have been a patient of Dr Shakibas for close to a year now for some issues with my bladder. He has an amazing bedside manner, he never rushes through anything and always explains his thoughts and opinions for treatment,. My surgery with him went well although I was in a great deal of pain for a few days and he helped me work through it to recover quickly and properly. I highly recommend him for any pelvic issues that you may have! He is a true expert and a nice person

Dr. Shakiba performed the minimally invasive robotic laparoscopic hysterectomy even with my difficult reproductive problems. He is the best of the best. A world class, highly skilled surgeon in his field. Truly a remarkable doctor that goes above and beyond. A professional that deserves great respect and trust. I highly recommend Dr. Shakiba to all women suffering long years of agony due to reproductive issues. He is God's blessing. Thank you Dr. Shakiba and the entire staff for excellent care.

Dr. Shakiba is very knowledgeable , take care of his patience like his own family and devotes his time to answer any questions or concerns you may have. due to my busy work schedule he even perform surgery on Saturday for me and visited me in hospital on Sunday. Amazing bad manners. I have consulted 4 different doctors regarding my fibroid removal and I chose Dr. Shakiba who turned out to be the best choice.
in Wood-Ridge NJ |
I decided to see Dr Shakiba based on the reviews I had read. I thank God everyday that I made that decision. He is by far the best Dr I have ever been to. He is patient, kind & does not rush you. He diagnosed conditions that other Dr's missed. Conditions that were effecting my quality of life. As scared as I was at the thought of surgery, I immediately trusted his recommendation. My improvements were immediate & recovery has been smooth & easy. I attribute that to his excellent surgical skills.
in West Milford, NJ |
I’m 3 months post-op from a robotic laparoscopic repair of bladder/uterine prolapse and slight rectocele. I consulted 6 doctors prior to my surgery and am very pleased I chose Dr. Shakiba. He’s patient, empathic, and knowledgeable. He did not push me into doing anything I was uncomfortable with. He does not have a cookie cutter treatment; I was treated like an individual. He only performed procedures in my comfort level. I wish I had more room. Go to Dr. Shakiba; you’ll be glad you did.
Excellent doctor. I went in for what my doctor suspected was endometriosis pain and he was able to fit me in for surgery within three days. It turned out it was my appendix and he was able to clear the endometriosis and remove the appendix. I was back to mostly normal activity within 2 weeks. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. I would recommend Dr. Shakiba!!

Confident, compassionate, skilled, reassuring, professional ; Dr. Shakiba is that and more.

Dr. Shakiba is the BEST. I was extremely nervous about having my hysterectomy that I put it off for about 4 years. I was under the care of another gynecologist that I was unsure of. Then, I met and had a consultation with Dr. Shakiba. He answered all of my questions, put my mind at ease and not only performed my Robotic hysterectomy, he removed a cyst, and I was able to keep my ovaries. Thank you Dr. Shakiba for helping me to finally end my fears. Best decision EVER !!!!
in New York, NY |
This Dr is an expert in his field, a leader, he performs surgery often which is exactly what you want, he takes the time to answer all of your questions, fully available before and after surgery, bedside manner is great. He knows the latest techniques, uses the best equipment, and really cares. I had another dr for years who was great and cared, but wasn't doing his homework and up to date like Dr Shakiba. I highly recommend him. He did my partial hysterectomy.
