“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!”

Dr. Shehata was pleasant, concerned, effective, very understandable, and did not rush the visit nor end it at the door while I was speaking.

Dr. Alex saved my mom's life. My mom has Parkinson's disease so Doc's that do not know her situation blame everything on Parkinson's and don't listen when I say that the new behavior is not normal or that this is not her baseline. Dr. Alex listened. He did not give up and my mom is back to the way she was months before he saw her. I would recommend this Dr. and if we are ever in an emergency like that again, I pray that he is her Dr.

Dr. Shehata listened to all my concerns and made sure he understood the real issues in order to help me with a plan for better health. Appreciate his great bedside manner (something lacking in so many medical professionals these days). He had suggestions that were new and thankful that they were not all prescriptions!
