Dr. Sheikh is fantastic. Very few providers listen so well and engage in shared decision making as she does. She is always prepared with the information relevant to the appointment and has a kindness and intelligence I wish more physicians possessed. I say this with great sincerity as I am also a physician. I would definitely refer patients to her.

Great interaction and conversation with Dr. Shaikh. I am just sorry that she is going to do virtual visits as I would prefer to meet with her at my appointments on my quest to loose weight.
