I've had severe pain for a long time and doctors always used to just give me pain meds and send me away. Dr. Shalev was the first doctor who actually listened to me and helped me. He told me I was being overprescribed pain pills and it wasn't helping me get any better (hence the problem in the US right now). He actually lowered my dosage and recommended some procedures and I feel much better! He did a very thorough exam and listened to everything I had to say. Great bedside manners! You just don't see doctors like this anymore- someone who actually cared. I will never go anywhere else!

I don't usually leave reviews, but I have to say that Dr. Shalev was one of the most compassionate doctors I've seen in yrs with great bedside manners. I finally felt like I found a doctor that would ACTUALLY listen to me and acknowledge the pain I was having. He has yrs of experience and isn't one of of those doctors like I've had in the past that just shoved me out the door with a bunch of pain pills! If anyone says different, they just want pills! He's truly helped me-I'm a patient for life!!

At the behest of my wife I was compelled to add to my previous review. The “Dr” I have difficulty the title for this man He completely disregarded the reason for my visit and his first, “I am Holyer than thou” was a question regarding why I took Singular prescribed by my PCP. He then proceeded to completely dismiss 3+ years of diagnoses from ER, GI and PCP doctors, proclaiming I did not have chronic pancreatitis, but only faking to get more pain meds. I guess months in the hospital make no diff

Dr shalev performed smart liposuction on my back of thigh and side. He botched the second thigh by removing almost all the fat from one area. It was immeaditly noticeable upon recovery. During my surgery he didn't numb me properly and went outside the area causing severe pain and then asked me " does it really hurt or are you being loud?" Becouse when he would vacume outside the numb area I would be vocal about the pain severity. He literally got into an argument with the attending nurse while I was on the table becouse she insisted he had already used the lazer on my left leg and he said he hadnt. He stopped the surgery to go over and look at something and then returned to the procedure. They were having a heated argument, not something you want to hear face down during a medical surgery procedure! I am having to have fat graphs to fill in the huge 7" x 6" sunken in area on my outer thigh that even extends to the front where I was not having a procedure done at all. I would not allow him to try to do anything else to my body and I regret allowing him to the first place becouse of a discount.

I have not had a procedure yet but the consultation was top notch; Dr Shalev was very thorough, spent a lot of time with me and it was a free consult! He is extremely detailed and explained everything you need to know. He did a quick ultrasound to assess my tissue and then made a recommendation.

I struggle with chronic pain due to moderately severe Scoliosis. Dr. Shalev is a great diagnostician. I came in limping and following a thorough examination and evaluation which included some stretches, I walked out already feeling so much better. He pinpointed the area of aggravation. He informed me what he thought was wrong. I had an injection (small dose of Depo-Medrol) and other medications and within one week, I had no pain in that location. I had a second injection in the sacroiliac joint and I am now back to living my life with NO pain, NO Pain Meds and doing my Water Aerobics. As a Believer, I thank the LORD for blessing me with a physician that changed my life; Dr. Daniel Shalev

I love Dr. Shalev! I had my Vaser Lipo done 10 days ago and can already see a big difference in my lower and upper abs and stomach. Dr. Shalev is patient and explains the process in detail. He and his staff are so professional, caring and gentle. I am looking forward to doing my flanks in a few weeks! Many thanks to Dr. Shalev and his team! JJ

Dr. Shalev is a miracle worker. He is an artist with special instruments. I loved being his patient and his staff was supportive, truthful, knowledgeable and friendly. I cant wait to go back and do other parts of my body. He did a wonderful job and i am so happy with your results.

I can not say enough good things about Dr. Shalev and his staff. Not only were my results better than what he or I believed were possible (and I am only 10 days post surgery), but the attention to detail and time he spends with his patients is second to none. I know this to not be the norm, as I have been working in the medical profession for 12 years, calling on several different specialist. It is rare to find (especially in today"s economic climate) good doctors that truly take the time to pre and post op that Dr. Shalev does. He has an incredible bed side manner and is an sculptor of women's body. Worth every penny!!!

I had Laser Lipo of the inner knees. It was not cosmetic to me as my jeans and slacks were not fitting right due to the "fat bulge" on the knee. Dr. Shalev addressed the surgery, time involved, and proceedure. It was amazing and I am very pleased with the results!
