07/07/14 5 5 5 5 The best Gyno I have been to. I have been to 3 doctors in the past year. I found Dr. Shakiba on this website. He was the only doctor that took the time to understand my issues and find the root of the problem. I had to have surgery and I was concern with the scars, but Dr. Shakiba took into consideration my age and made sure the scars were minimal. He is caring and overall very knowledgable. I am very pleased with his services. The staff is also very reliable. I drive over an hour to see him I highly recommend him.

28/02/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Shakiba was very sympathetic to my concerns, and has a wonderful bedside manner. I never had to wait more than 10 minutes for an appointment, and his staff was always very friendly. Dr. Shakiba did an excellent job explaining what caused my issues and also explained the surgery in depth. My concerns were fully addressed and taken care of within 2 months of my first appointment. My husband and I feel that doctor Shakiba gave me my pre-baby body back and we are very grateful for all of his hard work. The recovery was not very easy but it was all worth it in the end!

08/02/14 5 5 5 5 I would highly recommend Dr.Shakiba. I came to him in distress with severe Endometriosis, as a new patient, because I researched his advances in the da Vinci Hysterectomy. I had a near-fatal experience from anaphylactic shock in the OR a few months prior, and Dr. Shakiba welcomed both me and my scary health situation! He spent months working with the anesthesiologist at HUMC to determine a safe course of action for my surgery, and here I am, nearly three months later-pain free. He is kind and patient, and he is a fantastic doctor. You will not find a better gynecologist around.

27/12/13 5 5 5 5 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

29/10/13 5 5 5 5 I am an RN and I am pretty picky when it comes to choosing who provides care for myself and my family. I hit the jackpot with Dr. Shakiba as he is incredibly knowledgable, trustworthy, competent, and caring. I really feel cared for and at ease with this man. I have been dealing with a pretty stubborn problem and Dr. Shakiba has been the most proactive and productive in dealing with my health issue, coming up with the best solution I have been offered so far. I have never felt rushed or unimportant. He spends time with you and has a really warm bedside manner...which goes such a long way. His office staff at his Hackensack Hospital office are friendly, accommodating, and very organized. They don't miss a beat...even down to remembering to validate my parking when I have forgotten. I always get a warm reception and smiles. :) It's also incredible how quickly I am seen! I am so incredibly happy I found this doctor. Two emphatic thumbs up. :)

24/10/13 5 5 5 5 I initially saw Dr. Shakiba for examination for Sterilization Clearance. However; Dr. Shakiba immediately noticed an extremely enlarged Fibroid that need treatment. Surgery & removal was the optimal treatment and Dr. Shakiba provided extended information, consultation and recommendations throughout the process. the surgery was a great success; both in removal and recovery. I highly and strongly recommend Dr. Shakiba for a thorough exam for any issues one may have and also for ongoing care.

21/10/13 5 5 5 5 Dr.Shakiba was amazing from the moment I called for appointment he saw me in between his surgeries that day knowing I was having issues. He and his office staff did everything in their power to get me in for surgery and had me in the OR with in a few weeks. My surgery went well I feel like a new person he is an amazing surgeon even after the surgery did not rush me out of the hospital until he knew I was in less pain. His office was very professional and did everything to make this surgery as easy as possible for me they have been very attentive to me and very professional.

28/08/13 5 5 5 5 I am so grateful that I found Dr. Shakiba!! Before coming to him, my earlier gynecologist had misdiagnosed me and led me to believe that I had a simple cyst that may go away on its own, but Dr. Shakiba found that I actually had an endometrioma that required surgery. Here my wedding was coming up in a little over a month and my health insurance was about to run out, so Dr. Shakiba squeezed me into his schedule and operated on me exactly a month before my wedding. I was so scared, but he assured me that I would have a quick recovery and would be able to dance at my wedding. Well, he was right!!! Dr. Shakiba is a truly wonderful doctor!! He is knowledgeable and to the point, while at the same time kind and sensitive. His staff is also wonderful, always responsive and taking time to address any concerns I may have. I am so thankful I found Dr. Shakiba and highly recommend him!!

26/08/13 5 5 5 5 Four years ago I had extensive prolapse surgery which left me with chronic pelvic pain. I went from doctor to doctor in an attempt to find relief, but there was no success. In October 2012 I saw Dr. Shakiba who rather than refer me to another doctor, expressed confidence that he could help alleviate my suffering. After Dr. Shakiba conducted several tests, he explained at length what my options were, including injections and further surgery. Ultimately he decided that I could try oral pain medication and, so far, this medication has helped immeasurably. I feel as if relief is in sight. Dr. Shakiba was completely honest about my condition and at all times deeply concerned about my health and well-being. He will be supervising my care over the coming months and adjusting the medication as needed. He is a very caring professional who, along with his highly efficient staff, has provided me with the pain relief I have sought for so long. I am extremely grateful and recommend him highly.

12/07/13 5 5 5 5 I recently underwent Robotic Laparoscopic Hysterectomy surgery. I lived with huge fibroid tumors and the consequences of them for years trying to avoid surgery. Over the years, I considered numerous physicians to resolve this condition never resulting in a confidence level that would allow me proceed. In fact, just before meeting Dr. Shakiba I had scheduled my surgery with another doctor who told me laparoscopic surgery was not an option for me given the size and location of my tumors. THANK GOD, for Dr. Shakiba! Not only do I think Dr. Shakiba is an extraordinarily skilled surgeon but also a truly caring and likable individual with a warm and amiable bedside manner. I’m only sorry I can’t continue to see him for my regular gynecological visits. As difficult as my surgery was, Dr. Shakiba made the experience virtually painless. In the end, I had a few small incisions in my belly that eight weeks later are barely visible. I highly recommend Dr. Shakiba and am so happy I was fortunate enough to find him.

On May 9, 2013 I had myomectomy surgery performed and would like to thank Dr. Shakiba and his staff for an amazing experience and professionalism. Dr. Shakiba performed the surgery even though many others refused to do it due to my previous two surgeries that weren't very successful. From the very first visit Dr. Shakiba gave me hope for the very successful procedure and results. Dr. Shakiba has been outstanding in treating my health issue and I am so grateful to have a doctor that is prompt and professional in helping with my medical needs.

He just helped me fix an irritating urinary infection that came after my pelvic surgery. Not only is he an excellent and highly-skilled surgeon, he also provides top-shelf service when it comes to gynecological matters.

07/03/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Shakiba has been a wonderful gynecologist for my unique female conditions for the past 2 years. I was referred to him by a urologist who spoke very highly of his capabilities. During our first consultation, I was very impressed with his depth of knowledge, experience and sensitivity as a pelvic surgeon. He would eventually perform my myemectomy which he was very thorough in preparing me for. I was very comfortable with him performing Davinci/Robotic surgery and extremely satisfied with the long lasting results. I have since made Dr. Shakiba my OBGYN and I look forward to him being my physician when I begin a family. I have and will continue to refer my friends and family to him because of his professionalism and insight into the often complex nature of a woman. He has been a blessed addition to my life. I highly recommend him.

16/02/13 5 5 5 5 Words cannot express the gratitude that I have for Dr. Shakiba. He saved my life. I have endured years of pain and suffering due to pelvic pain, heavy periods and infertility. I've gone to specialist after specialist to no avail. I was on Vicodin and Percocet daily for my pain with no hope for a cure for my issues. My doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. I went to Dr. Shakiba and he was able to diagnose me within a week. He also performed my surgery and after years of pain - I feel great! He has a compassionate demeanor and he knows his stuff. He has been an angel sent by God to me and my husband. We have gone thru so much with doctors but Dr. Shakiba has changed our lives. We can't thank him enough!

05/02/13 5 5 5 5 It took a long time to find a doctor with the specific knowledge and skills to take care of my Pelvic Organ Prolapse. Dr Shakiba has advance knowledge and technology to deal with this sensitive area. Where other doctors told me to just "live with it", he explained the extent of the problem in three seperate areas. He had a plan that was not too aggressive but would solve the problems I was experiencing. He was compassionate, kind, and generous.

17/01/13 5 5 5 5 For months, I had been experiencing issues with excessive bleeding as well as urinary retention. My urologist suggested a vaginal sonogram where upon he found out that my uterus had grown rather large and I had various fibroids in and out of my uterus. He also stated that one fibroid was pushing on my bladder, thus causing urinary retention. He suggested that I see my gynecologist immediately. My physician suggested a hysterectomy, but did not detect other issues. However, a family member suggested that I get a second opinion. My second opinion was Dr. Shakiba. Dr. Shakiba was and will always be my savior. He along with another colleague agreed that I needed a hysterectomy, however I also needed pelvic reconstruction. Together, these two physicians spent hours answering my questions and completing further tests to ensure that my organs were going to be okay. He is talented, knowledgeable, empathetic and humorous. He cares deeply about making his patients comfortable and well.

26/10/12 3 4 2 3 I had the urethral sling surgery; however, it was not successful. I still cannot drink a normal 8-12 ounces of water without badly leaking within an hour. This doctor, although highly recommended by a friend, did not communicate as clearly with me as I would have wanted. I probably should have asked many more questions. He and his assistant kept wanting me to fit the profile of someone who leaks when sneezing or coughing which I don't. At this point, I believe I fit the overactive bladder profile since my bladder doesn't seem to hold much before it leaks. I am disappointed that I risked the surgery when I am no better off now and have this artificial sling inside of me for life.
