What People Say About Dr. Ammar Shammaa, MD

Dr. Ammar shammaa is not your ordinary OBGYN. I have had 4 miscarriages and 1 birth. Dr. Shammaa delivered my daughter, and shared our pain when we lost. He is always upbeat and a joy to have as a doctor. He earned my trust from day one. He's the most carrying and compassionate doctor I have ever had. I highly recommend! Along goes with his staff. It's clear to see they enjoy their job, even on difficult days. They truly become friends during your process inside and out of the office.

He is very good and takes time to listen to any issues and explain any treatment options. He is very skilled as a doctor but also very compassionate. I saw several other doctors who ignored my issues for several years. I only wish I'd changed to Dr. Shammaa sooner. Within a couple of months of my first visit, my ongoing issues were resolved. I know several people whose babies he delivered, and they were all very happy with the experience. If I ever have a baby, he's the one I will trust.
