“I believe in a patient-centered approach to healthcare. I focus on the ’why’ behind my patients’ concerns, in order to provide them meaningful and effective health solutions.

I believe that a holistic approach to treating patients, addressing not only their physical condition, but also their psychological, social, and spiritual needs, is the key to maintaining long-lasting health.

I look forward to being at the service of my community!”

I had my first visit with Dr. Shahada. All I could say is wow. What a great Doctor and person. He listened to my issues, and then he took the time and discussed a plan on what I need to do to feel better. He really was outstanding. My wonderful doctor passed away unexpectedly 3 years ago, and I have been searching for a doctor as wonderful ever since. I finally feel my search is over.

Dr. Shehata is truly an outstanding physician, consistently demonstrating attentiveness and understanding of his patients' needs, whether in critical situations or for everyday advice. He has always taken the time to provide guidance, even when I was stuck in a foreign hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic. Remarkably, he did not even charge my insurance for this service. Dr. Sheata has a tremendous heart, an open mind, and is full of wisdom and common sense. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone seeking a compassionate and knowledgeable healthcare professional.
