He delivered my 3rd child she was a vback and my 4th child was a c-section. He is the best doctor I could have asked for. His staff is great as well. I recommend who ever I know to him.

I have been a patient of Dr. Shakfeh’s when I found out I was pregnant in 2012, I was referred by a friend who said “you won’t be disappointed”. Dr.Shakfeh is seriously the BEST hands down!! He is very compassionate, always listens and is pretty comical. In the midst of my pregnancy I found out I was a carrier for CF & had had gest diabetes, Dr sat down with me and discussed what that meant and explained safety for me and my growing child. You will READ & HEAR and bout long wait times and it’s TRUE. Sometimes the wait is short and your in and out and sometimes your there for an hour + ...(I secretly left the practice In my early pregnancy, fed up with the wait, but no other DR gave me the feeling of care and sincerity that Shakfeh provided, so I returned) during delivery I was scared but his pure confidence was calming. I would NOT and will NOT GO TO ANOTHER OBGYN!! One thing I love, Shakfeh doesn’t send a strange Dr. to deliver your child, he shows up for most important day on time!

Dr. Shakfeh was knowledgeable and kind as he examined and explained to me what problem I was experiencing. He then referred me to a specialist in that particular field. I would most definitely recommend him to anyone searching for a OG-GYN physician.

I usually don't write reviews, but as this has been one of the worst physicians experiences throughout my 3 pregnancies I wanted to share my experience. First off I felt my care was not being managed. I initially started my care with Dr Shakfeh who was pleasant, but after our initial visit all my follow up care was by his staff or Interns in training who could not assess my care as he was an Intern in training and did not even have my chart information before seeing me. They provided inaccurate lab results advising my iron was low and that I needed to take supplements throughout my pregnancy which was never followed up on to determine if the supplements were working. Then I found out after switching my care that the results they gave me were incorrect so I did not need to take the supplements in the first place. That alone with dealing with the aggravation of none of the testing being done in office so all lab work had to be done at a separate visit. No urine samples, sugar, or iron le

Dr. Shakfeh has been part of my healthy life for more than twenty years. He has always been considerate, personable and caring. After delivering my twins, caring for me through and after a hysterectomy (complete with personally calling me at my home during my recovery), I hope that he will be my daughter’s doctor.

My primary care physician called Dr Shakfeh due to an urgent medical issue that I had. Dr Shakfeh moved heaven and earth to get me in as soon as possible. All of my concerns were addressed in complete detail. I felt like I was part of the solution to the problem not just the subject of an issue. I have complete faith that I am in the best of hands!

I went in for perimenopause symptoms. I had prepared a list of my current medications and symptoms. He took the list, pushed it to the side & siad, "What, am I supposed to READ all this?" (spoiler alert: Yes you are) He had no idea what medication i was on, told me my symptoms (which included hot flashes, cyclical mood problems, and other PMDD symptoms) were NOT related to hormones & that I probably had a "rare disease that 1 in a million had & THAT was my problem & I needed to go to USF to have them diagnose my problem. He was condescending, rude and curt with me. Told me to immediately stop my birth control (though he had no idea what kind I was on & kept insisting it was triphasic, when in fact it was monophasic. i complained to the office & they told me "appropriate measures have been taken. i seriously doubt that. An apology would have gone a long way, but I'm not holding my breath.
