Patient Reviews (7)
Henderson, NV |
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..
Henderson, NV |
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.
Henderson, NV |
He did not bother reading any of my medical history which was prepared for him neatly typed. Did not bother to read any of my Lab tests. Gave me a sample medication which "clearly" resulted in worsening of my problem, had he bothered to pay attention. He then wanted me to have a duplicate procedure, which of course was to be done in his clinic (owned by he and his partners) Never looking at the same test results having been done by a different Clinic. He spent all of 13 minutes with me.
in Las Vegas , NV |
Dr Shafi is very good and nice but his office manager and star are extremely rude with patients and have very poor customer service and they do not know how to work with patients and insurances. He was highly recommended but his staff and office staff were very rude. I will find another doctor elsewhere. It's really sad when doctors are good and recommend but their office staff makes ones experience horrible. I would not recommend this office.
Las Vegas, NV |
Poos Customer Service when calling! They don't care how sick you are and will not work with you when the insurance will not cover your procedure
in Las Vegas, NV |
I never felt rushed with Dr. Shafi. I called his office and he returned my call the same day to address my concern. I had a colonoscopy / endoscopy procedure. The prep nurses and recovery were some of the most caring ones I have had.
in Henderson NV |
The only problem I had was with the office staff when I had my procedure done. There were two ladies at the front desk that were arguing loud enough the patients in the waiting room could hear everything. Their attitudes & language was not something that should be used in a professional environment. It makes everyone else feel uncomfortable hearing that.
