Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Best Dr. ever
I had an ACF done by Dr. Shahbabian almost 20 years ago. He was one of the nicest doctors I've ever met and I have met a ton of doctors since I am a nurse. As soon as I woke up from surgery my neck was not hurting in the least although my hip (where he took bone from) did for 3 weeks (which is normal). After the healing process, I have not had any problem at all with my neck. He is the best doctor, and if I had to do it all over again, I would do it in a heartbeat.

The best reviews are the ones that happen after all the data is in. I had surgery with Dr. Shahbabian more than ten years ago and I am still having no problems whatsoever with my neck after the fusion. I am grateful.

Saved my mother's life. Can't begin to express my gratitude towards Dr. Shahbabian and his staff. Fortunately for her, Set was at Good Sam after a tough accident. Incredible follow up and took tons of time to help my mom and out whole family.

I have not had the surgery yet...I have been to Beacon, Christ spine center, Mayfield and Saturday morning I met this doctor. I felt like he was a warm, caring long time friend. He did not have an assistant do a work up. He personally spent 45 minutes checking out my toes, feet, hands, hips, my walk, my head, my neck, questions...he was on his knees checking my reflexes!! No doctor in 20 years has done this. It showed me his level of care. He will be doing my surgery! I love this doctor

I would not be walking today if Dr. Shahbabian did not perform back surgery on me over 14 years ago. My disc had almost severed my spinal cord and Dr Shahbabian found the problem after years of a dr telling me it was just a sprain/strain.

Dr. Shahbabian has performed surgery on me twice. No complications either time and he is one of the most caring doctors I have met. He is highly skilled in the procedures he performs. I would trust Dr. Shahbabian with my life.
