I believe the best way to treat my patients is to discover what is important to them. By listening to my patients and understanding their needs and the complexity of their disease process, I can provide individualized care to address their medical problems. My philosophy is taking a conservative approach towards patients’ surgical requirements and acknowledging treating patients goes beyond treating their disease. I am dedicated to providing the best patient care and putting their values above all other considerations.

I did not feel rushed during our conversation. He answered my questions and said he would call me back to discuss the details of the next steps for my plan of care.
I love my care team at Froedtert!! I couldn't ask for better!@
Doctor spent abundant time with us in discussion of our medical problem, showing obvious concern for patient well being
They were interested in my opinion and worked with me on a treatment plan.
We are so happy we called to see the staff here. Issue was fixed after 4 years of not getting any relief from the issue. Caring and knowledgeable staff. Recommending them to others.
It was my first appointment with Dr Shabani. My anxiety was quickly relieved I felt very comfortable with Dr Shabani and impressed with his knowledge.
When the doctor came in he apologized 3 times during our visit for being late. But no staff member came in prior to explain the doctor would be late.
I am extremely happy with Dr Shabani and staff
It was easy to schedule the appointment. I was very pleased Dr. Shabani was available for an in-office consult with a short wait time. His care team was very courteous, efficient & thorough with gathering personal medical history. The appointment was on time. Dr. Shabani is empathetic & communicates current status, health concerns & next steps in an easy-to-understand manner & didn't make me feel rushed. I appreciate his expertise & insights & look forward to future consults. I live an hour & 20 minutes away. He offered to do follow-ups by phone, FaceTime or in office. I appreciate the options & his flexibility. Dr. Shabani is patient focused & makes future appointments convenient while managing our time, gas expenses & personal preferences, The appointment couldn't have been better! I feel good about next steps. Thank you Dr. Shabani & the entire team!
Had a very good and thorough visit from start to finish. Very satisfied.
I had a lot of questions for Dr. Shabani during my appointment concerning my diagnosis. He was very patient with me and thoroughly explained my condition and my options. He was very concerned about my mental state during our talk because I became very emotional. I would recommend him to anyone needed a neurosurgeon.
I am very happy with the Dr. He took time and was really helping me figure out why I'm on pain.
All of the staff and Dr. Shabani were absolutely fantastic, caring, respectful and thorough. I am thrilled to be able to work with them. They show genuine care for their patients.
I have been very pleased with Dr. Shaboni. His demeanor, care and skill are excellent!
This was my first time at Spine Clinic. After reviewing the services provided I was very pleased and knew I made the right decision. I appreciated the time Dr, Shabani spent with me. I was very impressed.
Very good experience
I appreciated Dr Shabanin's listening intently to my recounting of adverse episodes during my hospitalization after surgery. He didn't offer excuses, mostly and thanked me for my input.
Nursing staff actually listened and asked questions we had not received elsewhere. Dr did not sugarcoat plan and options. Came straight out to explain our issues and treatment options. We have not received that elsewhere either. Very pleased with our visit. Looking forward to treatment plan.
I was very pleased with how both the doctor's nurse (who I saw first) and Dr. Shabani took the time to give me important information and answer all of my questions during my visit. They also advised me to call, should I have any questions later on.
Dr. Shabani took an extended time to discuss my situation and explained things in a manner that I could understand. It was greatly appreciated.
I have been so impressed with the care I have been given. Treated with the best care.
We were very happy with Dr Schabani. Also very happy with the Spine Clinic, anytime we called with a question they always answered us that day, the nurses were very helpful with any questions we had.
Dr Shabani was great at helping me. Wonderful man
We were very impressed with the PA & Doctor.
