What People Say About Dr. Mohammed Shafi, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

The office procedure was fine, The problem is the overcharged me! I have been to the office, called the office with no refund! Last time I call they said it would be 10/12 weeks to get a refund! They are busy! I think it’s a scam, they think people don’t check there EOB, and there they go a extra $200.00 in there pocket!!! If I owed the $ , and said I pay in 10/12 weeks , how would that work?? It’s now August 8, the test was done on May 1st and they still have my money.... Plus after I called a lab charged was added, no mention f any biopsy taken at the time!! If you don’t want to pay for more than you get stay away! Check you EOB and don’t let them collect more than you owe! Really best off , find a honest physician.

First of all my experience with everyone associated with Dr. Shafi was 5 STAR +. My wife recommended me to see Dr. Shafi so I asked my new Dr. Brantner to please refer me to see him. No one likes preparing for a Colonoscopy however, his office Windmill staff Karla, Sarah or Sara, Heidi, Evelyn and Tiffany were the BEST!!!! I felt comfortable-NOT exposed to the world and enjoyed the treatment I received. ENJOYED? Yep! I didn't feel a thing (thanks Heidi) and no issues a day later as I write.

Dr. Shafi is an excellent Gastroenterologist for sure! He took the fear out of my having to take a colonoscopy in which I was over due to take one (pass fifty years old, and had a parent who passed away with colon cancer.) I decided to have Dr. Shafi do the procedure because I did my research and found that he would be the best choice due to many factors such as his knowledge, experience, and most of all his listening skills. He is serious and caring about his patients and medical work.

Dr. Shafi and his staff are professional, knowledgeable, friendly and caring. I cannot say enough good things about these people and the quality care they all give. They understood my fears and answered all my questions. I was also made very comfortable before and after my procedures. The area was clean and comfortable. I even received a phone call hours after my procedures to see if I were doing well. I have nothing but high praises.

I had to take the time to write this excellent review! I'd beeb needing a gastroenterologist for years and a colonoscopy, but put it off, partly out of fear and not trusting doctors. But Dr Shafi and all his employees were wonderful, kind and caring, the procedure went well, the whole process much better than expected, so i do highly recommend, Dr Shafi and his office, thank you Lynda

Dr Shafi has been the doctor of my entire family for 10 years. He cared for my father and now he cares for the rest of the family. My brother and I both needed colonoscopies. I also was having other stomach issues. Dr Shafi and his staff were wonderful. They were so complete and thorough. They were very professional and wait times were acceptable. It was easy getting an appointment and they got my testing done within days. They value their patients and are true professionals. Thank you.

Dr. Shafi was very brief and impersonal. He did not provide any information about the conditions he diagnosed. He did not provide any information ahead of time about the colonoscopy and endoscopy procedures. I was left to research everything without his help. After a very long wait time I felt rushed to discuss my health and did not get clear answers to my questions. I would not recommend Dr Shafi but I will say his staff was very helpful and courteous.

Actual procedure done with Dr Shafi a week after meeting him and scheduling appointment. He, as well as the entire admin and medical staff were kind, competent and professional. For first appointment, wait time 5 minutes; for procedure 80 minutes. Despite procedure wait time, highly recommend this physician..

Dr. Shafi and his office staff were extremely kind throughout my endoscopy procedure. Upon my initial visit and talking with Dr. Shafi he recommended this procedure as I was having trouble swallowing. My appointment was scheduled only a week later, and the procedure only took about 30 minutes. He was able to solve my 5 year long issue with just a simple stretching of my esophagus. I felt welcomed and in good hands the whole time I was there.
