A recent reviewer had this to say about Dr. Shakir and his staff, “Awesome experience. Great doctor who is knowledgeable and willing to help. Hard to find psychiatrists that are this passionate about what they do. Not to mention the TMS staff Christian and Mike are the friendliest most professional young gentlemen I have had the pleasure of working with. Really made coming to TMS appointments easier. Overall great team of professionals.
