As he was examining my eye, he kept making comments to the resident to document, however he didn't explain to me what he saw.

November 03, 2015

Dr. Shakoor was excellent! He took the time to answer all of our questions and also to consider with us alternative treatments (if needed) in the future. No further procedure was needed - he is a very gifted surgeon as well as the ultimate professional. I feel very priviledged to be under his care, and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Shakoor has been so great with my daughter, putting her at ease every step of the way. He is always very open to answering all of my questions, and allowing us to see scans and pictures.

July 13, 2015

The doctor was absolutely awesome! I was so very impressed. He was also incredible when we saw each other in the parking lot, not knowing we would share an appointment. It may have been helpful with the PA and NP to have filled out a medical questionnaire ahead of time to save me the pain of wondering whether I needed to tell them my medical history and perceiving some annoyance.

July 05, 2015

Dr. Shakoor is the best.

July 04, 2015

I am glad I went to this clinic, after my experience with another office and Doctor at a different place, DR. Shakoor made me feel that my eye health is important,( I did not feel like a germ under a microscope) I am very happy to be here.

June 24, 2015

Dr. Shakoor put my daughter at ease during a time when she was very apprehensive. He was kind, caring, and answered every one of her questions. She really thinks he's amazing. As a mom, I appreciated the time he took with her to step by step go through the procedure and tell her the truth, but he also kept telling her how strong she was and how he knew she could handle it. That made all the difference for us both.

June 19, 2015

I am very happy the doctor was concerned about my hurting arm and he diagnosed it. He called the ER department for me to be seen which possibly saved my hand.
