Patient Comments (2)
Pensacola, FL |
I visited Dr. Shams for a simple review of my condition required by the State of Ohio. Dr Shams seemed confused. He seemed to have a preconceived idea of my condition before my visit. Questions he claimed to have asked were different on his report. My answers were left out pertinent to my condition. This Dr. Truly appeared to be incompetent. The State of Ohio dismissed Dr. Shams report. Very poorly written with inaccurate information. Very disappointed with this doctor. Complete fail !

He is very patient, thoughtful and takes as much time as needed to allow you to understand his goals and to ask questions. I feel like he really cares for my well being and goes into detail so that I understand what he is saying. I am very happy with this doctor and I feel positive with the results I'm experiencing so far.
