Dr Al Shamy placed my shunt for pseudotumor cerebri as well as a revision. They are very kind and explains everything as well as answers everything you ask. I was on the fence about the procedures and his office made me feel more relaxed and safe. I highly recommend him to everyone in need of a neurosurgeon.

Being a nurse I am very particular about Dr's. Dr Al Shamy is one of the best most caring neurosurgeon I have had. He even did my surgery on a Holiday. He is precise and meticulous. I'm glad I found him.
