Dr Shahbabian did my surgery over 10 years ago, no problems since. He has the best bedside manners I have ever experience with any doctors, Very caring and spend as much time as you need. I would highly recommend him to others

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.
in Mason, OH |
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.
