Dr. Shakir has gotten high praise for him and his staff. However, he has gotten mixed reviews from different rating sites such as yelp (3 stars) and healthgrades.com (4.1 stars). A recent patient stated: “Dr. Shakir and his staff are wonderful. Met with his staff first to go over questions and they were thorough and friendly and really took their time. I then met with Dr. Shakir and he spent over 30 minutes with me. He was so friendly, really listened, and asked more thorough questions. Best part though was that he did not quickly just write me a prescription and send me on my way.”
