Never learned so much, he is eager to help me now and in the future. Scared about not using opioid pain medications but it makes sense.

Dont let negative reviews influence your decision to seek treatment

I just wrote a review for Dr. Alshab and after submitting it I read some of the other reviews. Please do not pay attention to the negative reviews. There are a lot of people in this area who don't want treatment. All they want is pain medication. He is not the type of doctor to just hand out pain medication to everyone who wants it. He will treat your pain but you have to be part of the treatment process. Based on my experience with him, if you take an active part in your own treatment, his plan will work. If all you want is pain medication, then he is not the doctor you want to work with. He did prescribe pain medication to me to help with my recovery. He only did so after he got to know me, and after I took a urinalysis to make sure I was not abusing pain medication. He carefully monitored my use of the medication. And when it was no longer needed. We had a conversation about stopping it and he made a plan to do so. So keep this in mind when reading reviews. During my visits, I would consistently see other patients thanking him and his staff for the care he is providing. I saw a lot more satisfied patients then unhappy ones. My experience with him was so good that I wanted to write a positive review. My belief in the help he gave me is strong enough to make me want to write this second review to defend his practice. So please, don't put to much trust in the negative reviews. As a very satisfied patient, I am willing to write a review and then defend the doctor with a second review and that should tell you something.

One of the best doctors I have ever had

Dr. Alshab and his staff have been treating me for the past year. He has really helped me to recover and has done a great job at treating and managing the pain I have from a severe injury. He took the time to really listen to what I said about the symptoms I was having and made me a big part of the recovery process. His entire staff was a pleasure to work with. They always did everything possible to work with me in scheduling appointments and in getting refills of medication when I needed the refills. The staff was very friendly and always made me smile and laugh during appointments and procedures. The nurse practitioner on his staff treated me with the same care and respect as Dr. Alshab. His nurses and the office staff also treated me with the same care and respect. Having him as a doctor and being treated by him and his staff has been the best experience I have ever had with any doctor's office. I highly recommend him and am very happy to now be walking with very little pain.

Caring empathetic doctor

It is amazing when I have gone to U of M, Mayo clinic and found the best doctor in my own back yard. Smart, funny, compassionate and explained to me what is going on much better than anyone else. It was worth the wait
