Poor communication, long wait times and surly staff. He made me wait for an hour and didn’t seem to care. I felt he and his staff were more interested in generating insurance billings than providing patient care.

Love this Doctor he is the best, you are in great hands with his office, nurses and him. I greatly recommend him in the highest regard. He took great care of me with my inflammation in my stomach and my hiatal hernia.

My initial and follow-up visit with Dr Sheikh were both very pleasant. He asked questions and listened attentively to my answers. I felt that he was very knowledgeable and best of all, I did NOT feel like he was at all condescending (which I had encountered with 2 prior gastroenterologists). I feel very fortunate to have him as my doctor.

An excellent doctor! He goes above and beyond to accommodate and assure his patients. I am so impressed with him! Normally doctors with his background are “high and mighty” but not him! He explains things thoroughly, spends an appropriate amount of time with me and makes sure all my questions are answered. Highly recommend.
