Patient Comments (4)
in Atlanta, GA |
Had an excellent experience with Dr. Shahnavaz in the clinic and endoscopy center. He diagnosed and fixed my problems after seeing 2 other gastro doctors in Atlanta and New York.
in Columbus, GA |
Great doctor. Excellent bedside manner.
in Atlanta, GA |
I was sent to Dr. Shanavaz for a very large polyp in my colon that my doctor could not remove. He did a miracle and took it out without a need for surgery. I was really pleased with the results. His nurses were very helpful too.
in Atlanta, GA |
He ruptured my spleen during a colonoscopy. After coming out of recovery room, I told the nurses/assistants on staff of the sharp pain below my rib cage, they said that was to be expected. 12 hours later I was in the ER with half of my body's blood in my abdominal cavity. That's never happened to me before, he says on his visit to me in ICU.
