seen so far. He was very diligent in completing pre-tests to ensure any necessary
precautions were taken. During thesurgery, 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.”

procedure for all my questions and updates extremely supportive. Highly

“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.
