This content was provided by Dr. Shamieh "In 2010 I was run over by an SUV and seriously injured. I was in ICU for two weeks.
While my accident almost killed me, it also made me a more compassionate person, and a better surgeon. When I tell my patients I understand how they feel, it's not just something they told me to say in med school. I really do I understand the fear, frustration and anxiety associated with a major medical trauma. Will I walk again? Will I ever get better? Will this pain ever go away?
Of all of the training I've received, the best lessons I've learned started under the wheels of a Cadillac Escalade. When I tell a patient, "I've been there," they can rest assured that I really have.
Because of my experiences, I'm passionate about how my practice delivers treatment to my patients. "
