Dr Shams is knowledgeable, kind, and helpful.

I scheduled an appointment with this doctor when my regular physician was not available anytime soon. He mentioned during the consultation that I was very past due for my labs and that my other doctor had requested it. I explained how unclear the front desk staff had been about the tests in the past. He was very helpful and clear and patient about the whole process. He made notes and explained to the staff what I needed and we got it done. Now everyone is happy and I got my prescription filled. Thanks.

I met with Doctor Shams for a very short time because I could not get into my regular Doctor. He listened to me and ordered an xray of my knee.
