I have been a patient of Dr.Shams for over 10 years. i stop going for about 4 years and had to return to go and see him as i was going to another doctor for over 5 yrs and he could not find out what was wrong missed diagnose me for 4 yrs . Returned to see Dr. Shams and he figured it out in 6 months and i am so happy to be returning to a physician that cares about his patients and takes the time to treat you medically and not just prescribe you medicine to correct the problem . Dr Shams is one
