doctor Shabab is one of the best doctors I've had the opportunity to meet. I am very glad he was recommended by a friend. Whilehe is the best, frequently it is very difficult to get an appointment with him same day or even same week. in an emergent situation, he has instructed us to tell the receptionist to get him and he will get us in. however, we don't want to frequently do that, especially when the reasons to pull a good doctor from other patients are few and far between. he is an amazing and personable doctor and he's a very empathetic and sympathetic Care provider. the knot negative with the clinic over all other than the difficulty getting to the doctor we want, is your billing system. it's terrible. you guys don't use the ssme codes for things even when the same visit was basically mirrored twice. and that makes it hard to understand EOBs and when you send things like that our insurance company covers them differently, frequently I have to be in the phone for an hour or so to get them figured out...Doctor Shabab IS AWESOME, and the best doctor we've encountered at this practice and we've seen almost all of them, is not all.

Wadie Shabab and his staff are excellent. Our only "very poor" rating was because twice I received a letter in the mail stating that I needed to call & reschedule the appointed. I had to schedule 3 times total! For that reason our physical was pushed back much later than I wanted.
