I had given up on finding an excellent internal medicine doctor to whom I could trust, until I met Dr. Alexandre Shehata. I had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Shehata for my recent internal medicine concerns and I couldn't be more pleased with the level of care and compassion I received. From the moment I walked into the office, I felt at ease and knew that I was in good hands. Dr. Shehata took the time to listen to my concerns and thoroughly explained all of my treatment options. I was impressed by Dr. Shehata's knowledge and felt confident in the care plan that was prescribed. My blood pressure is in check and I do not have to seek a treatment plan from my cardiologist all thanks to him. Furthermore, the doctor's bedside manner was exceptional, and I never felt rushed or dismissed. I truly felt that Dr. Shehata had my best interests in mind and truly cared about my well-being. I would highly recommend this physician to anyone in need of internal medicine care. Dr. Shehata is an excellent doctor and a true asset to the medical community!

I have had a hard time finding a primary because my former primary moved away. My first appointment with Dr Shehata was the most comfortable I have ever been with any medical professional. He spent an incredible amount of time explaining and making sure I knew the game plan he recommended. Walked away feeling like I was in the best of hands. Thanks Doc

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.
