Patient Comments (7)
We are so thankful to have found Dr Shahzad to care for my mother. No one was able to help her until we found this physician. He is patient, caring, and willing to take time to explain and answer questions. The staff is kind and helpful. We are happy to recommend and promote this doctor and his office.

The reason this doctor has bad reviews, is because they are well deserved. I would give NO star for his review if I were able to. I went to the emergency room yesterday for severe acute nerve pain and went to Dr. Shahzad today to follow up. I have seen him before for headaches. I am in such severe pain I can barely walk, sit, and I can not sleep. I hurt so severely that I literally cry. I misunderstood a question he asked me, and he YELLED at me like I was a child. No advise, no help, nothing.

My father was assigned to Dr. Shahzad when admitted to Bayfront for a stroke. Our experience is that he has extremely poor interpersonal skills and is especially condescending towards women. When meeting with my father, he demonstrated a lack of interest in understanding the challenges he was dealing with since he had been able to answer the doctor's basic questions. For these reasons, we will not be going back to Dr. Shahzad; nor would I ever recommend him.

Dr. Shahzad cared for my mother for a year. She was placed on home hospice for COPD only. Medicare pays 100% for any physician visits or diagnostics for anything else. My mother is now having tia's and is in the throes of some kind of undiagnosed dementia. Dr. Shahzad refuses to see her. I've even had the Social Worker call and try to explain it to his staff. ZERO continuity of care. I tried to report him to the Better Business Bureau, but he's not listed. Don't waste your time.

Spoke to a lady at his office about becoming a new patient there and even though they couldnt accept me as a patient, I had questions as to why. The lady hung up on me while I was in mid sentence.
in Port Charlotte Fl |
I saw Dr. Shahzad today and was very impressed with his professional knowledge and bedside manner. I noticed one of the other comments about Dr. Shahzad was not favorable and I strongly disagree with the comment that was made. I found him to be excellent in every respect. In my 29 years of hospital management positions I have met many physicians and would place Dr. Shahzad in the highest category.
in Port Charlotte, FL |
This was the the most frightened I have ever been in the presence of a physician I would encourage anyone seeking a neurologist to not put yourself in the his care for any reason. If you, as I was, in need of emergency care find an advocate to research this man if you are unable to do this for yourself.I f you are physically in need of care you will need strong emotional support following an encounter with this man.
