I have been here for over an hour waiting to see this doctor. He speaks with me for only a few minutes nothing was resolved last time. I am hoping this time it is proactive. I am losing my patience.

Lots of surgeons lack the compulsion or the capacity for kindness. Dr Elshihabi is in a completely different category. Although I find it impossible to go into surgery without anxiety, my experiences with this kind and brilliant man afford me much more peace of mind than any other surgeon I've dealt with.

I highly recommend Dr. Elshihabi, I really believe he is a genius. I had been to several doctors who could not figure out what was wrong with me. He knew what was wrong with me right away, and fixed my back. He took time to answer my questions, he came to the hospital everyday to see me, even on Christmas! If you want a real caring top notch excellent surgeon, you will not find a better one than Dr. Elshihabi.

He sat with me, and listened to my concerns. He defied my stereotyped view of a surgeon. Excellent post-op recovery, so I was very pleased.

Dr. Elshihabi is a very nice person and is always courteous. He is very easy to talk to and is knowledgeable in his field. He has offered for me to get 2nd opinions, but I trust him and and do not feel the need to do that. His staff is great and it seems that they are a caring team. I have seen a few spinal doctors and this one is the best.
