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.
