Patient Comments (3)
Iowa, LA |
Dr. Shamieh has a great heart for his patients.
in Baton Rouge, LA |
This physician has cancelled two appointments with my 85-year old parent. Yesterday the office called to say that he wasn't working on Monday because of Mardi Gras. So why did they schedule the appointment a month ago? His nurse practioner didn't know about my parent's Parkinson's diagnosis because that had not been communicated to her. The office manager needs to run a more professional operation.
