Doctor Shervin Shafa is, without question, an exceptional man and an equally excellent Doctor of Gastroenterology. Doctor Shafa has demonstrated that he does not "go through the motions" at being the best in his field. Rather, with me, he became deeply involved in my case and and went to work at improving my quality of life. Dr Shafa made sure that when I needed a specialist, he would recommend one he trusted. For me, Dr Shervin Shafa is building relationships on solid ground, one at a time.

Dr. Shafa realized a few minutes into our consult that I needed to be seen urgently in a different clinic; he moved mountains, called in favors, and phoned friends in order to get me the care that I needed within the time available. He is a fantastic doctor, truly cares about the welfare of his patients, and I would 100% recommend him to anyone in need of his services.

Dr. Shafa led my gastroenterology procedure. We met in the clinic where he provided me with an excellent overview of my diagnosis, treatment options and post-procedure care plan. He was available post the clinical visit for questions and follow-up and provided useful reading material post my visit.
