Dr shams is the best doctor I have ever met. When you call with a problem the office calls you same day and gets you in for a visit asap . Never had a doctor who genuinely cares about your health. I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr Shams, saw my 86 year old dad for a cold and cough. He was very thorough and asked a great deal of questions. He ordered various tests and it was later discovered my dad had a nodule on his right lung which turned out to be cancer. It was easily treated with radiation and he is doing excellent. I was told during this process by his cancer doctor this could have very easily been missed, and great job on Dr Shams part for going the extra mile to help discover his cancer. My dad will most likely be around for a lot longer due to his knowledge, and caring!! Thank you my friend!

Dr Shams is a doctor who TRULY cares about me and my health. I am blessed to have him as my doctor. I have been a patient at St. Francis for many years, and haven't had such a caring, thorough doctor in over a decade! I was seeking another physicians office due to lack of a caring physician until I med Dr Shams!
