Rude disinterested. I was on a high dose of paxil and he ended that to start a low dose of something else. He didn't think to wean me off of the paxil first. The withdrawl was excruciating so I tried to contact him and he was unavailable. I couldn't get an appointment any time soon so I was forced to see my primary who got me through the crisis. When I finally got an appointment with shehata, he got offended that I had gone to someone else and refused to see me as a patient any longer.

I genuinely believe this doctor harmed me by putting me on inappropriate medications that the drug companies were pushing to him. Every doctor I have had since (including the ones in the hospital, which I believe I had to go to b.c of him) could not believe how I had been treated. I hope more people are not harmed by him just b/c he can get you in fast.

Dr. Shehata has a very good understanding of his patients and their conditions. I haven't had any reservations discussing any issues with him and he has been able to schedule me around my work schedule for my appointments. The prescriptions he has authorized have been working well for me. He is very thorough explaining my condition and treatment.
