Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I had an avf graft and It got clotted. Dr. Sham was Great! He was my surgeon. He made me feel comfortable and he was thorough. His receptionist Ms. Ebony was sweet and friendly. The staff asked medical questions and they made everything easier. At the end after surgery I was given a sandwich and a juice. It was a very nice experience. I would recommend Dr. Sherman, his staff, and this clinic. Thank you.

Dr. Joseph Shams is my vascular surgeon. He is an excellent surgeon. He is knowledgeable, thorough, patient, explains everything, answers all questions and has an excellent staff. I know I am in good hands in his care. My previous Vascular surgeon stopped performing surgery and I was referred to Dr. Shams. I am very happy with Dr. Shams and I would highly recommend him without reservation to anyone seeking a Vascular surgeon.
