in Staten Island, NY |
Had the first 6 weeks pain free since an accident in 2003 . Very helpful
in Brooklyn, NY |
Does not return phone calls regarding needs for new prescriptions. Staff gives excuses of being very busy. Not too busy to receive payment from insurance! Demands cash co-payment, before seeing doctor, not credit card, obviously for many complaints of this nature. Money hungry doctor with no compassion!!!!
in Brooklyn, NY |
A considerably conservitive man, when he speaks his professionalism, expertise, and compassion are evident, as well as welcomed. Out of the several dozens of Doctors whom have treated me Dr. S. Lasheen is in the top five, actually I love him. Dr. Lasheen has kept me out of the emergecy room due to his excellence with managing my pain, condition, and emotional needs, he is undoubtedly the best in his field! Prior to his care I was hospitalized over a half dozen times. I feel as if he is family
