What People Say About Dr. Kfir Shamir, MD

Dr. Shamir was professional, patient, and very knowledgable. I took my 3 year old son to see him for possible allergies and he made sure to take his time learning about the symptoms my son was presenting with and made sure to make my son feel very comfortable. Dr. Shamir's office staff was also very professional, kind and knowledgeable. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Shamir and his practice and I would highly recommend him for a child or an adult.

I had a very poor experience. I arrived in the Hollywood office where the paint was peeling off the walls. I waited over 1 hr 45 minutes until I was seen. Dr. Shamir spent 5 minutes with me and my son He also made recommendations and then walked by the room and told us to not proceed with the plan, all stated while standing in the doorway. I requested a preservative free immunization for my son which they have failed to order nor offer since my appointment 3 weeks ago. Horrible!!!

Wonderful professionalism and gave good explanation on what was happening to my daughter. The office was very accommodating in scheduling my appointment (Called and got an apt for the very next day). Anyone who has a child with allergies should visit his office. His staff is very welcoming and attentive.

I been treating for various allergies its this provider for the past 2 years. There was a little improvement over time, however allergies is getting as bad as previous to the treatment. I complained many times and nothing has really changed. I decided to change to another provider since this provider does not value their patients. Appointments is always running late, poor customer services, wrong billing and not a effective treatment.

Dr. Shamir is the best doctor I have ever been to, in all fields of medicine. I can't recommend him enough. He is so knowledgeable, explains things very simply and sincerely cares about people's health. I have been coming to him for about four years now and I would never go to another asthma/allergy doctor. I never feel rushed and he allows me to ask as many questions as I have. He is just a nice guy and also does what he can with helping you out in anyway he can.

Dr. Shamir was very thorough and took his time in explaining the test results. We did not feel rushed at all. Staff was friendly and organized. Nurse Marcia was gentle and patient when testing my kids. Bianca was clear in her explanation of our insurance benefits.

I was impressed during my initial exam by Dr. Shamir and stopped going to another very competent Allergist who was far from my home location. Dr. Shamir reviewed all my records and testing from my former Allergist and spent a good deal of time explaining my various allergies and what he could do for me. His staff is professional and I feel I'm in good hands. If you are treated for allergies with weekly injections, it is best to visit the office (walk-in) in the AM hours.

He's a smart doctor but they run their office horrible. Double booking everyone. Appointments never start on time. Sit in a waiting room with a bunch of screaming little kids. He isn't that good of a doctor not to seek other options. After the third visit I never even got to see him. After 40 minutes of waiting I just left and won't go back.
