My husband, son, and I all see Dr.Shawahfeh. My husband and I both have Parkinson's and my son has Freidriech's ataxia. We all really like Dr. Shawagfeh. He's so smart and he seems to really care. He never talks "down" to us; yet he explains things in a way that you can understant. We never feel "rushed". He spends more than enough time with usIn addition, we never have to wait long to see him. I realize that our situation is a bit unusual..but we have nothing but praise for Dr. Shawagfeh.

The doctor showed great concern by asking questions, doing physical reflex tests, & he showed concern over my reason for being there. As a result, an MRI, with & without contrast has been scheduled. I am very pleased with the professionalism I was given.
