I have to say dr. Shakir was blunt and to the point but is an amazing doctor I had to have no lateral vericole ligation surgury and I feel he is the best he told me everything up front and explained stuff very well... the surgury was right on time and was everything he said it would be... some of the staff is rude but their are bad one everywhere... you will get a fill for the nice ones I give shakir a 5 star rating based on his knowledge and ability or narrow down my issue and resolve it.

I called there office 7 times to make an appointment. every time you call they will put you hold and will come back like after 30 -45 minutes. Will never return call for 3-4 weeks. Just because of there bad customer service and I just went to different doctor.

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.
