I have never been shamed for being diagnosed with lupus until I met this doctor. Avoid her. She has zero bedside manner and refuses to answer questions or concerns.

One of the best doctors in MN. She listens and knows what she talking about. She only wants you to feel better. Remember each person's body responds differently to medications. She will help you find a medicine that works for you.

I recently had a follow-up appoint with Dr. Shammash. I have seen many doctors with different specialties over the years but I there is no one who has been more caring to me than Dr. Shammash. Dr. Shammash is fully interested in helping me get better and manage my health so I feel better. I wish I could put into words how much I appreciate her as my physician.
