He was very good about explaining what was happening with my hand and why, what the options were, and when it would be appropriate to think about them. He did a good job of listening to my questions and answering them.

I recently suffered a fractured clavicle and met with Dr. Al-Shihabi for a consultation on treatment. I found him to be thorough, insightful, and attentive to listening. After the meeting the determination was mutually made to proceed with surgery and place a plate and screws into the clavicle. The surgery went well and Dr Al-Shihabi was great as was the staff at Orthopedic Associates. I went in for follow up and the consultation was again thorough and time was taken to answer my follow up questions. Three weeks into the healing process and I am very pleased with all aspects of the experience and the surgery and would recommend Dr Al-Shihabi to those who are in need of a physician.

I appreciated Dr. Al-Shihabi's frank and to the point comments, the details provided with his diagnoses, and his explanation of the various options. As an engineer, I am use to making decisions based on available data and therefore found his procedures to meet my desires and expectations.

Very professional. Throughly explained condition and surgery plan at appointment. Again explained everything just prior to procedure including post procedure care. Took time to answer all questions.

I had the very best experience with Dr. Al-Shihabi. He is matter of fact but friendly, confidence inspiring, and asks often if I have any questions. He worked with me to schedule bilateral carpal tunnel surgery in a relatively tight time frame that worked best for me. I give Dr. Al-Shihabi a solid recommendation.

Botched surgery. After surgery, what I thought was swelling was my thumb sliding down on top of another bone. he never told me that and instead gave me another cortisone shot. terrible communicator. I needed a second surgery to fix what he had done and make things right. I don't know if he is simply inexperienced or just a poor doctor, but I could not, in good conscience recommend him to anyone

Dr. Al-Shihabi is an AWESOME physician. The surgery was painless, fast and all staff took great care of me! When I had a concern 6 days after surgery he was able to see me within the hour of calling and was very welcoming and reassuring. I couldn't have asked for better care! Great well kept facility!

Revisit after > 1 year for elbow issue with continued pain as cortisone shot only lasted 2 months; Dr. Al-Shahabi did not perform a physical exam although office note states otherwise! Dr. never so much as touched my elbow to ask where my pain was. Therapy was recommended. Feel the return visit was waste of time and money. Saw another MD not affiliated with this group. Sent for MRI-have partial flexor tendon tear and severe tendonosis, therapy NOT recommended at this time-need rest to heal.
