Dr. Shafizadeh came very highly recommended from my internist. In fact, he was my doctor's doctor, what better recommendation than that! I have just gone for my third visit after a procedure and let me tell you, I have not felt this good in years. I have seen at least five other urologists, none of whom diagnosed me correctly. Finally, Dr. S, as smart as he is, figured out the problem and addressed it. I am very happy with my choice of Dr. Shafizadeh

Dr. Shafizadeh came highly recommended by my internist, who is actually a patient of Dr. Shafizadeh. I found that very re-assuring because my own doctor trusted him enough to be his patient. He spent a long time listening to my medical history and my fears about surgery. He was very honest with me about possible complications, unlike other urologists one of whom (a guy who advertises everywhere) told me he 'never' has complications. I really appreciated Dr. Shafizadeh's honesty, humility and openness. He is also above all, a magnificent surgeon. In the OR, before I went under, i realized the OR nurse was one of our neighbors! She whispered to me that Dr. Shafizadeh is the best urologist in the hospital and the best surgeon she has ever seen in her 25 years of nursing. That just re-assured me so much more! and she was right!

Dr. Shafizadeh is one of the few doctors I know who actually listen to their patients and who just doesn't push whatever he wants to make money. He is also really really smart and a kind and caring man.
He listened to my concerns and spoke to me at length both in person and over the phone so that when I did go into surgery, all of my questions had been answered and I felt very comfortable. I have recommended him very highly to all of my guy friends. He is a first class surgeon and person. P.S I am not sure, but his Park Avenue address is not listed here. He has a very nice office on park in Manhattan.

My wife was diagnosed with late stage kidney cancer at the age of 40. We are the parents of three small children and you cannot imagine what state we were in when we found Dr. Shafizadeh. He has become through this ordeal like family to us. Two years later, and my wife is THANKFULLY still cancer free. We went to two other doctors who said they could not/would not operate on my wife. Finally, a friend told us About Dr. S and how he is a surgeon's surgeon that other doctors go to. Every child's birthday, every holiday since that operation we owe to Dr. S.

Dr. S is a brilliant, KIND person who took my family's beliefs and desires into consideration. He did not do unnecessary surgery simply to pad his own pockets which would have made him alot more $$. I had seen another doctor a fancy guy on Madison avenue who told me after a two minute visit that my only solution was an expensive operation that was out of pocket. Dr. S worked with what my insurance covered without ever sacrificing my life and safety. We are forever grateful.

i went to Dr Shafizadeh after three other urologists did nothing to help my condition, this despite my spending at least 10 grand on procedures not covered by insurance with the other doctors. I got his number from a co-worker whose husband had been treated by Dr. S for prostate cancer many years ago and was doing great.
Dr. Shafizadeh spent 45 minutes with me reviewing my history the first time we met. Six months later, all systems are go and I am back to my old self again. I can't recommend this man highly enough. He gave me my life back. AND he takes insurance!

Pros: smart, very smart, and listens

Cons: none, just a busy office, but it only means he is popular
