Dr. Sheikh was assigned to my mother upon entering the cardiac critical care unit. He was very quiet and said very little. When I question his method of treatment, he had me removed from OSF in Urbana by Security. I was told by nursing staff I was allowed back, but Dr. Sheikh has said he would have me removed again. Now my mother is alone, paranoid, and scared in ICU. My sister, the medical power of attorney, has requested my mother's pulmonologist consult in hopes of getting Sheikh removed.
