Bakersfield, CA |
The Doctor stopped a really bad, life threatening kidney infection I had in march 2017. I had to go to the ER and was told if I had waited a few more hours, I would have gone septic and been in real trouble. I'm much, much better now and thank Dr. Shakir for that.

Worst place EVER! doctor has NO people skills, VERY rude, is NOT stocked on supplies, doesn't listen and staff, well .... Let's just say I'm SHOCKED this place is still open for business. We have been told to keep taking my father to the ER to replace his catheter line because he doesn't have any. (After 3 different occasions he advised he would stock up)!!!!

I would never refer to this guy. Missed the stones, kept me on a catheter for a month while he tried to cover his butt. I should have sued but he's not worth my time. Run from this idiot and his staff. Had to have reputable urologist redo my entire procedure. The man should lose his license.
