Testimonials

“I had 2,400 graphs with Dr. Sheikh and am very happy with the results I have seen so far. He was very diligent in completing pre-tests to ensure any necessary precautions were taken. During the surgery, he was very calm and professional and kept me informed during the whole process. He was patient with me after the surgery to ensure I would go home without any issues. He has been very accessible and available to answer any of my questions no matter the time of day, even over the holiday season. I am very happy with Dr. Sheikh and would recommend him to anyone looking to have the same procedure done.”

“I just recently had Neograft procedure (1350 grafts) completed by Dr. Wasim Sheikh on December 2015. Absolutely amazing doctor and a true professional in his field, very informative and supportive, gentle, and his availability post procedure for all my questions and updates extremely supportive. Highly recommend Dr. Wasim for Neograft hair transplant procedure.”

“I had a large liposuction procedure on my back on July 8. Nu Image was a beautiful, clean facility with helpful staff that answered all questions. From my initial consultation with Sandra, who was awesome, down to earth, realistic regarding results, and honest about risk and complications, to my conversation with the staff, who was caring and reassured me about my apprehensiveness to go through with my large procedure. My surgeon, Dr. Sheikh, was extremely personable, had a sense of humour, and was extremely patient, reassuring, and kept me calm during the surgery, He was concerned with how anxious I was and ensured I was comfortable during the procedure as he talked me through it. I was not expecting such an immediate result when I put my garment on – WOW!!! My love handles are now tapered beautifully, and I look proportionate! I am very impressed and thankful for Dr, Sheikh. His calming nature, patience and helpfulness will have me returning for both my arms and abdomen n the near future. Thank you so very much for ridding me of my lifelong insecurity Dr. Sheikh, and caring for me so well during my surgery!” ~ A ~ “My first experience with facial fillers. I was very nervous. Dr. Sheikh was very kind and explained the procedure before beginning and all along through the treatment. He is a magician with fillers. I experienced very little pain. I loved the results and wished I hadn’t waited so long to get it done. I would highly recommend Dr. Sheikh."
