Dr. Shaun S Ehsani has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • 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.

Retired- previously Electroneurodiagnostic Technogist

I will write full review from my ipad tomorrow. Too difficult on smartphone. Just want to say tonight if anyone is considering an appointment with this man I strongly suggest you forget or cancel. My experience was not something I will repeat. Just my opinion. My advice - no sick person should waste time and energy even if free with this person.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
Extremely Unprofessional

This review is specific to Dr. Ehsani who is an extremely unprofessional doctor at JMG. Every test he orders for me I have to call the office multiple times leaving messages for him before he will return my call with the results. Additionally he does not listen to my symptoms and medical history before jumping to false diagnoses and thus unnecessary and unhelpful prescriptions. The way in which Dr. Ehsani speaks to me is as if I am a small child. For example, when asking if I was constipated he instead asked "You go poopoo?" in a baby like voice. At my most recent appointment, Dr. Ehsani interrupted me to tell me that his girlfriend recently broke up with him and therefor he has has recently had to increase his anti-depressant dosage. At the same appointment Dr. Ehsani said he was referring me to a gastroenterologist and to call them that afternoon to make an appointment, however when I called the receptionist said he did not send the referral. Only after several phone calls and a day later was the referral finally in place. Keep in mind all of these occurances happened within a 2 week span during which i've been in severe abdominal pain with headaches, fevers and dizziness. Dr. Ehsani has been anything but helpful, I'm not sure if he thinks his actions are humorous but they certainly aren't to me nor do I think they would be to anyone else who is seeking reliable medical advice.
