This has been my doctor for over twelve years and he has seen me through the good, the bad, and the ugly! In every phase he has been knowledgeable, compassionate, and very informative. I'm not a spring chicken so when I say this is the best physician I've ever had, it would be an understatement! This type of patient care should be taught as a model for all physicians!

My mother and I began with Dr. Abdelshaheed back in 2006. He took exceptional care of us. He takes his time listening to you about your symptoms and always gives his expert advise and medical care. He is more than a healthcare provider he friendly and makes you feel comfortable on any health issue you have. There is never more than an hour waiting period if that and his staff also takes great care of you.

I have been seeing Dr Abdelshaheed for about 6 years. He is the best doctor I have ever had. He always listen's to my concerns. He takes him time in the room with his patients and explains everything. If I have a problem he is quick to fix it. If I need to see a specialist he doesn't waste anytime to get you to the doctor and get you back on track. I couldn't ask for a better doctor. I highly recommend him to anybody looking for a good doctor and one who cares about you.

Dr Abdelshaheed truly cares about his patients. You are treated like a person not a number. My entire family goes to Dr Abdelshaheed. Sometimes the wait can be a little long but when he is with you as his patient you are the only one that matters. To me he is worth the wait.

Dr Abdelshaheed is a good Dr, however wait times are ridiculous. My insurance was billed incorrect, Dr office billed me and threatened to sue if not paid. We paid, then when we realized they billed wrong, and they we're suppose to pay us back per our insurance company (tricare- military) they refused. Not good business if you ask me. Not how military or anyone should be treated. Now we go to PNMC for our care. Business lost us easily. All due to the office manager.
