    Very compassionate and thorough..

    I have been seeing Dr. Shammas as a patient for 25 years. I suffer from Cluster Headaches. He is the most caring, knowledgeable doctor I have ever met. He reaches out to me from time to time to see how I am doing. If a new medication comes out, he contacts me to let me know about it. He goes above and beyond. I have referred numerous family members and friends to Dr. Shammas and they have been especially pleased with him. Look no further, he is the BEST!!!
    in New York, NY |
    I would recommend him. Very knowledgeable and explains everything. Great doctor overall and very helpful. He did my spinal tab for example and I had no pain or complications and explained everything through the process. I would recommend him.
    in Ridgewood, NJ |
    He was impatient and rude. He didn't seem to care to answer our questions, almost as though it was an inconvenience to be talking to us at all.
    Ramsey, NJ |
    Not very knowledgeable, insensitive, arrogant, not sure why he is even in the profession!
