What People Say About Dr. Reza Shirazi, MD
RecentMost Helpful

Great first encounter with Dr. Shirazi. My initial consultation with him for my prostate cancer was a pleasant surprise. He took longer than the scheduled hour visit to explain my different options for treatment. I have every confidence that I have made the right choice. His Escondido office staff is very pleasant as well as helpful beyond what one would normally expect. They were very professional and made me feel I was going to get the best care possible.

I was recommended to Genesis Healthcare, and specifically to Dr Shirazi, to deal with prostate cancer. After I made the decision to use the Cybreknife method, Dr. Shirazi explained all of the procedure in detail so I knew what to expect. Four months later, after the treatment, I'm a happy guy. Dr. Shirazi is an extremely positive physician and has gained respect among his peers, and now myself, as a very competent and professional doctor.

I came to Dr Shirazi after suffering over 8 years with Trigeminal Neuralgia. My pain req morphine. Dr Shirazi was extremely knowledgeable about my condition and confident in his ability to treat it with Cyberknife Radiation. The process was perfect for someone like me with claustrophobia. The results of the procedure were that my pain levels decreased slowly with fluctuations. A year has passed and the Trigeminal pain is now gone. It is an amazing result. Thank you.
