George was in a serious debilitated condition after meningitis and was touch and go for recovery. Dr.Shafizadeh offered to put in new shunt to help his recovery to a normal walking again. After a 40 pound loss it required continual encouragement for eating. He did not give up on the patient!

I went to the eye doctor and they transferred me to Baptist immediately. They weren't capable of handling my medical condition so I was then transferred to Dr.Shafizadeh. I recommend him to anyone. He's a great doctor!
