“This was the first time at this office and the staff was great!!! Making a appt was easy like next day. The wait time was maybe 15 min before seeing my Dr.. When I first met Maheen Sheikh she was very nice ,compassionate.. Was seen by her for pancreas issue’s..She told me to begin where it all started..Had previous lab work done and a CT which comes to find out that she was so thougheral that she noticed the date on my CT was an old CT. Which I had done 3 days prior to my visit with my PCP which then apparently was all normal.Thing is PCP didn’t notice the date and where taken but Dr Maheen Sheikh caught..At the end of my visit gave me a hug and told me she’s going to what she can.. It was comforting to know good drs are still out there..” – Debra Salkeld
