What People Say About Dr. Mehnaz Shafi, MD
Reply
She spent time with me but no plan established except a scan. Never heard from her again. I liked her but I will have to go elsewhere. I guess she is too busy to ever communicate again with patients. I read my scan results on My Chart but I don't know what they mean.
