What Our Patients Say

Dr. Shouhed and his staff have been so supportive throughout our process with my daughter's MALS surgery. We live in NY and did a video consultation in which he took the time with her and I during that consultation, not rushing anything and making sure all our questions were answered. He gave us his email and personal phone number to keep him up to date if things were not progressing as they should be. He is so knowledgeable in regards to MALS and the robotic approach, and would definitely refer him to others. His staff is amazing as well.

Dr. Shouhed is awesome! He is very knowledgeable about what he does, which includes treating some rare and complicated illnesses such as MALS and SMAS. He is extremely thorough, thoughtful, caring, and precise in his diagnosis, treatment plan, surgery, and follow-up care. He is a very experienced robotic surgeon which makes for smaller incisions and faster recovery times. In addition, his entire office staff is friendly, responsive, and helpful. Thank you Dr. Shouhed!!

Dr. Shouhed has been one of the most caring doctors I have met. I’m so incredibly thankful to have found him and for everything he has done for me. He has stuck with me from my first consultation to my MALS surgery to my surgery for SMAS 5 months later and have no doubt he will continue to always be there for me and never give up. I truly believe that he has saved my life twice. Everyone in his office is also amazing and so helpful. It really feels like being a part of a family.

Dr. Shouhed and his team are amazing. He gave me my life back by fixing my MALS and SMAS. Thank you so much! This experience has given me hope for having a normal life.

I can't say enough about how amazing Dr. Shouhead is! He truly cares about his patients and helping them feel better. After struggling with MALS two years Dr Danny Shouhead did everything to help me get a diagnosis and the surgery I need:
