What People Say About Dr. Safwat Shaker, MD

Dr. Safwat Shaker has been my primary doctor for the past few years. He not only provides me with top-notch service and genuine care, he also refers me to top-notch specialists to ensure I am getting the appropriate medical attention for all my health issues. I suffer from diabetes, kidney failure, heart disease and gastritis. Two years ago my health was extremely and dangerously poor with these conditions. Today I feel much better. Although I am not "cured", Dr. Shaker is taking good care of me!

Dr. Shaker is an excellent physician. I have been going to him for years now and I have not had one complaint yet. I wish he was open every day of the week though.

Parking is difficult, staff is rude, office is dated, and the doc himself is so cheap that he turns off his fax machine and won't mail anything to his patients (is postage that big of an expense?). Overbooks patients, but so does everyone else. About the only positive I experienced was relative ease of getting an appointment.
