    My husband fractured his spine and has seen many doctors all of which either sent him home with meds or wanted to do crazy invasive procedures. Dr. Shamie very personable & patient when he explained the procedure needed. Due to my husbands pain, he expedited my husbands surgery. My husband went from not being able to walk to 99.9% complete pain free recovery. Thank you so much for your professionalism & kind heart, god bless the work that you continue to do. Your the best!!!

    After 10 years of doctors trying to keep me on pain meds, Dr Shamie put titanium pins through my SI joint, stabilizing it. My pain is 99% less and I feel great. His staff is fantastic and the other surgeons he works with are phenomenal!

    Dr.Shamie is one of the worst doctors I have encountered. We went to him recommended by his family & friends and despite all this he catastrophically screwed up my mother's surgery. He did not open the nerve canals as he was supposed to, put in place implants that were not needed and was completely irresponsible. Avoid surgery with this surgeon at all costs. You can look him and see that he receives money from medical companies to promote their devices--same device he put inside my mother's back

    Had complex lumbar decompression operation two weeks ago with amazingly good results. I am already up and feeling better than I have in years. Kudos Dr. Nick! You're my hero.
