Dr. Afshan F Shakir has the following 2 specialties
- Adolescent Medicine
Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

My oldest seen Dr. Shakir for most of his life. She was knowledgable, straight to the point, and usually fast. However, her receptionist and other staff members are very unfriendly. They are almost snobby and as a previous poster mentioned, cold. The not so inviting staff finally pushed me over the edge and I switched doctors. We are now perfectly happy with Dr Wilbur at okc clinic.
I have been seeing Dr. Shakir for almost 6 years now. I have 3 children who are 6yr, 2yr, and 9 months and she has been their pediatrician since birth. I haven't ever even thought about going somewhere else. She has always correctly diagnosed my children and took great care of them. She is very knowledgeable and I completely trust her when treating my children. I love that when I call and my children are sick I usually can get a same day appointment. If I can't then they can always get me in right away in the morning and that is very important to me. The staff are very nice and friendly and I feel comfortable there. Everyone is really nice. My family has always had an overall great experience with Dr. Shakir and her office. She has always been so nice to my family and I.
Dr. Shakir has been seeing my son for the past 5 years. She has always been helpful and has taken great care of my child. She has always listened to our problems and helped tremendously. I would recommend her to everyone that I know. Her staff are always helpful and when I need a last minute appointment they always get us in.
Dr. Shakir is a knowledgeable doctor however her bedside manner is not inviting. Another person may feel that it's more "matter of fact" and not have problem with it but a previous reviewer said she and her staff came across as cold and I think that's accurate. Our account was sent to collections for non-payment then paid, but she removed my children as her patients. It was a very harrowing experience. My children were very ill so we wanted to turn to their primary doctor for help only to find out that our finances would keep us from doing so. However, it was a blessing in disguise. We took the path of least resistance by continuing to see her when we did not like her and that was our mistake. So to anyone thinking of seeing her keep in mind that if something feels off don't feel obligated to come back. There are too many doctors out there to feel like you have to be stuck with one.
