Dr. Ajaz A Sheikh has the following 4 specialties
- Clinical Neurophysiology
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
- Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

The staff is amazing very helpful and understanding . Dr sheik is an excellent Dr , he is very knowledgable, understanding and goes behond to make sure your child is taken care of. We are very bless to have him as our child Gi doctor.
I came in with a sick child, after bouncing around from pediatrician to pediatrician and finally getting a referral. I waited a month and a half for my appointment. And when we got there, we were so exited that finally our toddler was getting the help he desperately needs. Well surprise surprise, this doctor did NOT care at all about our kid. He sent us home and we ended up in the emergency room with a toddler in profound stomach pain and no bowel movements. Which we expressed in our visit with Dr. Sheik. Now we have to wait another 3 months for another visit with another specialists, because Dr. Sheikh wasted 2 months of our time . If you are coming here with a sick child you'll know that time is something you can't afford to waste. Please keep our experience in mind so that if you happen to be in a similar situation, you don't get your hopes up while anxiously waiting for your appointment.
When I wanted a copy of my child's medical records, they wanted to charge $0.66 a page! I'm already paying an indecent amount of money for office visits, why should the patient be charged further for copies of their own medical records? Not only are they making money but it seems that they don't want patients to have their own records.
After six months of office visits and several tests, my daughter is still suffering from severe stomach pain. Dr. Sheikh is vague in his explanations of the tests he orders. He blames our insurance company for not approving the medication that would "really" help her but what she is taking now is almost identical. Then he tried to blame my daughter for taking the medication incorrectly (she is not) then he tried to say that I just didn't tell him how sick she really was (I have been telling him at each and every office visit since last year). I have no interest in bad mouthing someone for the fun of it. I truly believe he is a bad doctor and am hurt by the fact that I put my trust in him and he has done nothing to help my daughter.
