Dr Shihab is fantastic. He always addresses all my concerns, gives me the lab results I need and what, if anything, to do to improve them. He makes me feel like a transplant success story! Very professional and personable.

July 15, 2013

The transplant team was very professional and compassionate.

June 24, 2013

The TEAM approach provided to me was very positive regarding my malady...potential transplant proceedures available to me, etc.

May 14, 2013

I am glad I have the kidney team behind me, but n real life I would hate to have to recommend them to anyone else. Never a good sign.

March 11, 2013

Every time I come for a check-up regarding my kidney transplant I see a new doctor. After waiting for over an hour I saw a doctor who I'd never seen before. He was very brief, he didn't take the time to answer my questions, and he didn't seem interested at all in anything pertaining to my visit or care.

February 18, 2013

They gave me good information regarding the rejection medication that I did not know about which was very important to me. On my own medication that I am taking now I don't think she understood that I let my doctors know of any changes that I made.

February 18, 2013

Everyone shows the utmost professionalism and treats you as if you are their only patient. They spent time with you.

January 21, 2013

I don't feel the doctor listened to my problem.
