Dr. Shawn Khodadadian
Dr.Khodadadian is currently an internal medicine physician at Manhattan Foot Specialists and a leading gastroenterologist at Manhattan Gastroenterology. At Manhattan Foot Specialists, we believe that a multidisciplinary approach is the optimal way to diagnose and treat patients. When appropriate, a thorough evaluation by an internist can be a very important component of overall health evaluation to rule out any systemic causes of manifestations in any organ systems including the evaluation of visual issues.
Often times, subtle aspects when not addressed fully can lead to delays or inadequate diagnosis in today’s healthcare environment. We pride ourselves on spending the time necessary to give the quality of care that our patient’s deserve.

“I am friendly, approachable and strongly believe in placing patients at the center of the decision-making process as long as they have been fully informed of all their options. I want each of my patients to experience individualized care and to feel comfortable expressing how they feel to me. I do all I can to make them feel at ease. I care for patients. Patient education and self management strategies are at the heart of what I do.” ~ Dr. Shawn Khodadadian
