“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!”

He takes the time to really listen to my concerns and always provides thoughtful, thorough explanations and advice. Dr. Shehata’s bedside manner is exceptional—he’s kind, patient, and genuinely cares about his patients’ well-being. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and always up-to-date with the latest medical practices, which gives me great confidence in his care.

Dr. Shahata is the first doctor I've had who sits down and maintains eye contact while we talk. He answers all my questions and solved a serious health issue the first time around.The office staff are friendly and helpful. I get prompt phone calls with test results. I'm very lucky I found him!

Dr. Shehata has been a wonderful doctor caring for my mother over the past year and a half. He has helped her and our family through two very frightening episodes. His bedside manner is nothing but outstanding. He was born to be a caregiver and we are lucky to have him caring for Mom. Thank you

By far one of the kindest and most professional doctors I have ever met. Technical knowledge is crucial, of course, but having a doctor treat you with dignity and compassion is almost as important, and Dr. Shehata succeeds on both front.
