“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.

Dr. Shahata and his staff are great! He’s no nonsense and is a big advocate of preventative maintenance. Thorough, professional and at the same time “down to Earth”. The staff are very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with.

Dr Shahata is excellent, thorough and very friendly. I had my first consultation a few days ago. He made me feel very comfortable. He takes his time, listens and asks the right questions. He has a great staff. He is definitely a five star doctor. I would highly recommend him.

I was a patient of Dr. Giuliano's for over 30 years and was nervous about seeing a new doctor. Dr. Shehata is kind and compassionate and I highly recommend him.

I will be 83 this year. I was a medical technician in the Air Force from 1959 to 1963. I worked at a pharmacological research center in Bellevue Hospital in NYC from 1964 to 1967. I've had several surgeries and hospitalizations over the years. I've had contact with many, many doctors as a result. I can say without fear of contradiction that Dr. Alexandre Shehata is the most thorough and attentive doctor I have ever had. This was my first appointment with him as I am changing primary physicians. My first appointment with him was awesome - he spent at least an hour with me, going over my past and the records I had sent him. He listens, a quality in doctors I have had trouble finding. He asks questions. He makes suggestions. He explains things in a way you can understand. He dictates his notes in your presence to be sure he gets everything right. He follows up (he called to tell me my blood test results on a Sunday!). The office staff was also excellent - I have found that the office staff is often a reflection of the doctor's attitude and behavior and this office is no exception.
