Nashiha Shahid, MD, FAAFP

Welcome, Dr. Nashiha Shahid to Oak Orchard Health in Batavia.

Dr. Shahid is double Board Certified in Family Medicine and Geriatrics with over twenty years of practicing medicine (13 years at Pediatric Associates of Batavia). She describes her approach to care as patient-centered, compassionate, communicative, collaborative, and passionate. She believes communication is at the core of providing good patient care.

“Compassion goes hand in hand with understanding,” says Dr. Shahid. “I am a good communicator, and that makes it easier for me to talk with patients and their families — to get to the heart of the matter. I also like to collaborate with other members of our healthcare team to provide the best possible outcome for my patients. Respecting my patients’ privacy and confidentiality is key to our relationship.”

When Dr. Shahid chose a medical career, it was not just about pursuing a profession but also about fulfilling a calling to serve others, to make a difference, and to contribute to the well-being of the community. She has dedicated herself wholeheartedly to the pursuit of healing and helping others.

Family medicine allows her to fulfill her passion for comprehensive, patient-centered care and her belief in the importance of addressing the diverse healthcare needs of families across the lifespan. Family medicine also offers the unique opportunity to provide holistic care that spans the entire spectrum of medical conditions and patient populations, for patients of all ages.

She is deeply committed to building long-term relationships with patients and families, and this continuity of care provided in family medicine allows for personalized, compassionate care that not only considers their physical health but also the social, emotional, and cultural aspects of each patient’s life.

Dr Shahid enjoys spending her free time with her husband and three children.
