Patient Comments (5)
in Fall River, MA |
Eager to push meds even when seemingly not necessary. definitely a "system guy", asks lots of questions about seat-belts, guns, state of mind. Dislike very much, probably my worst primary care physician yet.
been taking anti inflammatory medicine for almost 4 weeks now for a pinched nerve problem, Dr shamir got upset because he said i wasnt following his exact instructions to take full dosages of the antiinflamatory,i explained to him they make me feel lousy,i also explained to him in the past ive had high potassium readings and my kidnees are not as healthy a normal person being a bad diabetic. and i prefer not to take these this long .i also asked to have some blood work done which he ignored.
Dr. Shamir does not want to listen to anything you have to say. He comes across as arrogant and he can be rude. I do think that his knowledge of medicine is good but his bedside manner is poor. He needs to be reminded of my medical picture even though I have been going to him for years.

He is the rudest, most unfriendly doctor I have ever met. I took my 96 year-old mother to see him today. She has dementia, can't remember what she ate 5 minutes after eating and this guy would NOT talk to me or listen to me, but directed all questions to her, and this so-called doctor thought she was giving him valid answers. He is rude, not friendly & unprofessional. Did not even listen to heart, lungs? addressed none of her issues. NOTHING! Would never recommend him to anyone. A vet better.
Was not on top of my information. Completely ignored information I was telling him. Failed entirely to even inquire about a persisting medical issue which was the specific reason for a follow up I was there for. Not to mention the failures on the part of his staff handling my medication information.
