in Palisades Park, NJ |
After doing a tremendous amount of research, I found Dr. Shakiba to be the best suited in his field for my needs. I was impressed with his knowledge and experience in the most advanced technology and least invasive surgery. I had a 4 1/2 hour successful surgical procedure that went exactly as planned. I experienced no pain and very little discomfort. He gave me my life back and I highly recommend him.
in River Vale, NJ |
Best thing to happen to me in a long time!!!!!I I feel like a different person...... Thank you
in Rockland County, NY |
Dr. Shakiba and his staff are amazing. I had heavy bleeding for years. The heavy bleeding led to my iron falling to a 4.9 level at which time I needed a blood transfusion. I visited Dr. Shakiba for the first time in February of 2017. He determined that I had Adenomyosis and he performed a laparoscopic hysterectomy on April 6, 2017. The recovery was a lot easier then I thought it would be. Dr. Shakiba is an excellent surgeon and superior in his field.
in Belmar, NJ |
Dr. Shakiba changed my life! He is a wonderful doctor and a wonderful surgeon as well as a kind and gentle person with an astute knowledge about pelvic and hormonal disorders. Originally I went to Dr. Shakiba for a second opinion and after meeting him and thoroughly discussing my options I chose him to perform my surgery. Though a major surgery, the pain was minimal and practically no scars. Phenomenal doctor, I can not recommend him enough!
in Wayne, NJ |
The best surgeon you will find. I had surgery 2 weeks ago....I felt fine after 2 or 3 days. He addressed all of my issues with patience and caring. I'm so glad I found him.
in Paramus |
Amazing Dr., unfortunately, he needs a new front desk staff. They are very rude and need learn how to speak to patients.
in Paterson, NJ |
. 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!!
in Randolph, NJ |
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
in Englewood Cliffs, NJ |
My experience with Dr. Shakiba was truly amazing. I had surgery and he was kind, caring and patient. He took the time to explain every detail and made sure I was comfortable with the procedure. He spent enough time with me to make sure I had all of my questions answered. His staff is kind and courteous and very accommodating. I will highly recommend Dr. Shakiba to my friends and family.

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.
in Ramsey, NJ |
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!!

After searching for a Gynecologist I could trust, who was skilled and practiced in the most up-to-date methods in gynecological care, I found Dr. Shakiba. Confident, compassionate, skilled, reassuring, professional ; Dr. Shakiba is that and more. He listened to my concerns and provided the information and support to proceed with the course of action needed for my specific issues. Dr. Shakiba's office staff are a welcoming, busy team who help with any questions during visits and follow-ups.
in Edgewater, NJ |
Dr. Shakiba is the best gynecologist that I met in a log while. His in depth knowledge, his bedside manners and a true desire to resolve any medical problems that the patient has are truly admirable. He goes out of his way to find the best treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Shakiba to anyone who would not settle for anything but the BEST!

in Paterson, NJ |
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.
