My wife has (NASH) Liver disease and he caught it early and does very close monitoring and treatment. We drive 70 miles each way to go to this Doctor and its worth it. He currently has numerous clinical trials regarding (NASH) going. My wife is unable to participate in a trial due to a more severe condition. He has also been instrumental in getting newer more effective medications approved. He is a excellent Doctor that takes the time to answer questions and explains what and why he doing something. The staff he has working for him are also top notch, friendly and helpful.

My husband was diagnosed with a rare condition where the muscles in his esophagus stopped working and nothing would go into the stomach, he was referred to a local dr who told him that there was nothing that could be done for him. His primary dr referred him to Dr. Sheikh who diagnosed the problem and literally saved my husbands life. Although his problem is rare Dr. Sheikh has worked with him and we are so grateful. He gets 10 stars in our book.

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.

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.

I had a colonoscopy today without sedation with Dr. Sheikh and his team. It went smoothly; turning "the corner" was briefly painful but with the expertise and support from the doctor and staff he made it to the small intestine! Dr. Sheikh and and his staff took time to talk to me and make me feel comfortable before, during, and after the procedure. Dr. Sheikh pointed out anatomy/"landmarks" along the way. It was fascinating! I recommend Dr. Sheikh and his fantastic staff! Thank you for everythi
