Patients Seen: Adults

I incor­po­rate the best prac­tices in mus­cu­loskele­tal care in a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary prac­tice to empow­er patients to reclaim their func­tion and improve their health. In my prac­tice, I val­ue the process of lis­ten­ing to the patient and under­stand­ing the whole per­son before for­mu­lat­ing a treat­ment plan that achieves pos­i­tive results for the patient.

"Dr Shahbandar was very good at listening to me....and I very much appreciated it. I was new so a xray needed to be scheduled to corroborate my symptoms...and then a call from her assistant following up and helping me to schedule a MRI b/c of problems on the xray which needed further clarifications...I see her Thursday and will see what further we need to do and a hip injection is tentative -- any relief will be welcome but most of all we are working on finding out what the problem is in the first place."
