Dr. Shirazi is one of the best doctors I have ever encountered. I have a complicated medical issue that has interfered with my daily life for years. Dr. Shirazi found out what was wrong with me when no other doctors could! She performed surgery & it was a success! Dr. Shirazi is extremely intelligent & has excellent credentials, but what sets her apart from other doctors is her kind heart. She is both beautiful inside and out. Dr. Shirazi gave me my life & health back! I am forever grateful.
Dr. Shirazi genuinely cares about what she does. She actually took the time to listen, unfortunately not many take the time with their patients like she did.

Surgery of my left breast for cancer lumpectomy and two lymph nodes removal went well. No repeat surgery needed. Healing process fast with minimal scaring. Could not be happier with results.
