To Whom It May Concern, I would like to take a few moments to express my sincere thanks to all the staff of the Dr. Shakiba. After four different operations on my bladder, I finally feel that I have the right doctor. I had a mesh sling put in around February, 2010 to alleviate embarrassing bladder leaking. In early 2014 I had pieces of that mesh start to deteriorate. I went to a urologist and he advised me that the only way to fix the problem was to have surgery to remove the pieces that were deteriorating. I had that surgery in November, 2014. The removal surgery caused me to have severe incontinence again and I was very depressed. My urologist told me that I would have to have second mesh sling put in over the first sling that was deteriorating. I had that surgery in February, 2015. I never felt like the sling was doing what it was supposed to do and I felt that I had too much tissue damage for it to work properly. I started to again suffer from leaking and was at my wits end, that was until I found Dr. Shakiba. Before finding him, I went to four other doctors; I visited Yale University in Connecticut and to several urologists’ in New Jersey. I found that after all those consultations, that Dr. Shakiba had the correct path for me when he advised me to have the robotic surgery. May I start by stating that everyone in the office staff is beyond reproach in their professionalism and decication. They are all very kind and compassionate, from the receptionist, to Kelly who takes care of all the appointments for surgery, disability etc., to the all the nurses. Dr. Shakiba is kind and generous with his time and makes you feel like you are the only patient he has when you are with him. He listens intently and answers all of your questions without feeling like you are taking up too much of his time. My husband accompanied me on all my visits and Dr. Shakiba answered all his questions as well. On the day of surgery, he made me feel very comfortable and assured me that everything was going to go exactly as planned during the surgery. Dr. Shakiba is and amazing man and an amazing doctor. I am 58 years old, and I have finally found an Urologist that I am comfortable with and with whom I can place my trust. It has been six weeks since my surgery and I feel so much better. I am not suffering from bladder leaks and the stream of my urine is finally normal. I thank God every day for Dr. Shakiba. I experienced nothing but patience and compassion from him, as well as the entire office staff. Thank you Dr. Shakiba, Tatiana, the staff and the entire surgical team at Hackensack University Hospital for giving me back my life. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Shakiba and his staff to everyone I meet that may be looking for his specialty. Sincerely, Kim
For four and a half long years I suffered in pain for an issue, I ignored and put on the backburner in my life which wound up being a five lb tumor :( .. In a day everything imploded & the pain was so bad, I could barely walk my body was just shutting down telling me its time to GO TO THE DR! .. When I telephoned Dr. Kashibas office in tears crying for an appt, his staff went ABOVE & BEYOND to get the message to him even though we had never even met. He was in surgery they said, but I would get a call back.. That night he called me after being in surgery all day he cared that much about my pain. He gave me an appt the next day, when I came into his office , pretty much curled up in a ball crying, his girls were the sweetest, and so kind to me, so patient listening to all my complaints to let the Dr. know.. In he came MY ANGEL! I had been to other surgeons prior to him, each and every one wanted to cut me open like a thanksgiving turkey and gave me no other option.. I was terrified. Dr. Shakiba was so kind, explained everything to me and the best option for me..I did drive him crazy Im sure because I was scared to death of surgery talking a mile a minute crying from the pain I was in, but his compassion, caring, and explanation of everything put my racing mind at ease .He is the BEST SURGEON you can ever ask for, the very top in his field.. He rearranged his schedule several times to squeeze me in which usually would have taken weeks to get in.. He spent hours on me so I wasnt cut open like a turkey and did robotic surgery on me .. I THANK GOD EVERYDAY I MET HIM, he gave me my life back, I am no longer in pain as I was for so many years. I was so very lucky to have been led to him, because their is no other Dr. who would have cared for me like he did! Im almost 2 weeks post op and I feel like I have a brand new life, no longer suffering with all I had for so long! I am forever grateful to him for everything he has done for me! THANK YOU DR. SHAKIBA YOUR THE BEST!!! :)
Dr. Shakiba is the best! I am so thankful to have found him and his wonderful staff especially Chrissy. Irregular cycles for over 3 months and severe pain for over 3 weeks with 2 ER visits and misdiagnosis of kidney infection, stones, etc as well as a scope of urethra and bladder that came back normal - all from other doctors. What brought me over the line and into the hands of Dr. Shakiba was my "old" and I say old I will never see him again OB/GYN who said I had to deal with the pain for 3 more week and then we could talk birth control - oh no, I knew that was not the issue. I saw Dr. Shakiba and was in his office for 2 hours discussing what was going on and my options, within a week (last Thursday) I had Laparoscopic surgery for Endometriosis, cyst and a lesion and the pain is now gone, just dealing with all the recovery pain now but I know the end is near. I have now found my new GYN and will not be going anywhere, I highly highly recommend him - wonderful dr and great bedside manner, you cannot ask for anything better and he truly shows he cares!
After suffering with severe Pelvic Organ Prolapsed and Bladder problems for many years going from doctor to doctor fortunately I met Dr.Shakiba. My first consultation with Dr.Shakiba amazed me, he spend good 45 min. on explaining every details of my condition and the risks and benefits of the surgery. I left the office feeling special. Visiting his office numerous times I see that each and every one of his patients is special and getting individual attention and care from the doctor and his professional staff. This doctor is the most skilled, thoughtful, and intelligent doctor I have ever met. He is a great scientist and inventor in his field. I would like to emphasize that his office wouldn’t take my insurance. Dr.Shakiba explained to me my options and never spoke about the payment again. I wish Dr.Shakiba a good health and happiness. Not only will his magical hands, also his wonderful and compelling smile heel many of us. THANK YOU DR.SHAKIBA
