Ratings for Dr. Stephen F. Shaban
Dr. Shaban saved my life. I had been very ill for several years. After many doctors, hospitals and clinics my husband rushed me to Rex Hospital. I was severely ill. Dr. Shaban, a Urologist, was on duty. HE SAVED MY LIFE. I do not remember the next 5 days of my life, and it took another 7 days before my memory started to come back. My husband filled me on my lost days. I had a kidney stone which caused me to be severely sepsis. I was given 1 hour to live. THANK YOU DR. SHABAN!!! GOD BLESS YOU. He explained everything that was going on to my husband. Very thorough and very professional.
I've been seeing Dr. Shaban for about 8 years. He is very down to earth and tells you straight up. I can see how overly sensitive people might not like that. He is the best doctor I have dealt with, period. I like his approach, demeanor, and professionalism. His nurse is awesome too. The practice is extremely busy and delays seem to be part of the program. Plan on an extra 30 mins. They're worth it.
Every visit I've had has resulted in a 50-90 minute wait to see the doctor for 10 minutes. Patients are double or triple booked for the same 15 minute appointment time. Office is open until 5pm, but they won't even schedule an appointment after 4pm cause they already know that they will be at least an hour behind each day. So sad that you have to take a day off work for a follow up visit.
Excellent doctor and great staff. Frequently, the MD has no control over what order patients are seen. If one patient arrives early and there are no patients ahead of him, that patient will be seen. This is way it is important to always arrive 15 minutes BEFORE your appointment time. Most MDs will not "wait" for patients who are late or show up at 3 pm for their 3 pm appt. If another patient is early and you are late, unfortunatlely, the other patient will be seen before you.
Waited in his Cary office for an hour and thirty minutes. Was skipped over as he was with a patient who had a later appointmant and arrived about an hour after I did. Great doctor but poor business acumen. Schedules too many patints for a given amount of time. Other patients in the lobby this day, March 4, 2009, had a similar experience.
