Dr. Khurram Shahzad DDS, MD
My daughters recent wisdom teeth removal with Dr. Shazad was flawless and she was so comfortable with the entire team from beginning to end. Dr. Shazad made sure she was well taken care of.
Dr Shahzad took care of my son’s wisdom teeth with great professionalism and care. He was easy to talk to, explained everything clearly, gave me the pros and cons for the procedure and engaged in a great dialogue for what was best for my son.
Had the pleasure of having Dr. Shahzad do all 4 of my wisdom teeth extractions, two of which were super impacted, under sedation. Truthfully, him and the assistants were amazing. They explained the process in advance, and made me feel safe until the very end . . . Dr. Shahzad was awesome.
I grew up in Long Island, New York and went to college at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Stony Brook where I majored in Biology and graduated with honors in 1997.
