My husband and I have been going to her office for over 2 years. One year ago I was misdiagnosed at an urgent care, but a week later I went to Dr Shazia's office. She immediately knew the correct diagnosis and prescribed appropriate treatment. She is very skilled and friendly. Every time I have seen her; I've been impressed.
