What People Say About Dr. Salim Shelby, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I believe what differentiates between two doctors is overall experience (scheduling, prep, follow-ups, communication, billing, etc.). Dr. Shelby need to overhaul his team as his staff is not equipped to handle cases. Dr. Shelby’s office misguided me on sending me to pharmacy 3 times when their office failed to send the prescription. On 4th call, they admit that they have glitch in their computer and prescriptions are not going through (Now, how difficult it is to call a pharmacy and put a phone order in). The procedure scheduler asked me just to take ‘Magnesium Citrate’ from OTC, which didn’t match the written instructions received from the office. I didn’t want to risk not following the written instructions and ended up missing my appointment (no after hours VM service), unnecessary day away from work and loss time due to unnecessary trips to pharmacy. I recommend to avoid Dr. Shelby because you are not going to get any help from the office.

I never seen a doctor like him in my entire life. No knowledge. No time to spend with patient. I don't recommend him. *********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

I have been a patient of Dr. Shelby for over 5 years. He has always been kind, personable and professional. He has the ability to calm you whether you are nervous about the procedure or the outcome. What I like personally is that he takes a few minutes to check in with you as you come out of the anesthesia. His staff are very efficient. They have been with him a long time. It is always nice to see a familiar face when you check in to his office or surgery center. Highly recommended!

I was in the hospital recently at San Ramon Regional, due to pneumonia. After they conducted blood tests, I was found to have low red blood cell count dude to internal bleeding. So, in comes Dr. Shelby! He reassured me that he would discover what he thought were bleeding ulcers. Next day he did an endoscopy and colostomy on me, and found several esophageal ulcers. He even gave us a copy of the picture of the ulcers from the endoscopy. His attending nurses were first rate, too! I subsequently saw

SO nervous about having my first colonoscopy! My family doctor referred me to see Dr. Shelby, because of his reputation for being punctual, kind and attentive to his patients. I am very pleased to say, Dr. Shelby was wonderful! My experience starting with his friendly, efficient staff, the colonoscopy, and subsequent visit to discuss my results with Dr. Shelby, was exceptional! I will definitely recommend Dr.

New patient of Dr. Shelby. Totally ecstatic about the treatment I received. Very attentive to my condition. Performed an upper endoscopy with dilation. Entire staff was very efficient. No after effects from the anesthesia, and felt great afterwards. I am very satisfied with his care.
