Patient Comments (2)
in Bronxville, NY |
Dr. Shafaee was extraordinarily professional in all aspects of my recent surgery. The pre-op process was well explained and my visits to her office were timely, informative and test results were quickly communicated by Dr. Shafaee herself. The day of surgery and expectations were well communicated; the post-op and results in ambulatory surgery and during my recovery at home were monitored again by Dr. Shafaee herself and all questions and concerns were answered and explained professionally.

I would definitely and highly recommend to my friends since she is very competent in her field of medicine. Given the situation I was in, she made me comfortable and relax. I felt secured and confident that I have a doctor I can trust with my life. Mutual trust between a patient and the presiding physician is first and foremost for the success of any medical situation. May her kind thrive and set as an example to the medical world,
