Doctor Shama preformed sinus surgery at the same time Dr Brennan did my 3rd Rhinoplasty revision surgery . Dr shama is a great Doctor and surgeon . This is the best my sinuses have felt in years . Doctor Shama explained everything, was thoughtful , responsive and was willing to put up with whinning when she cleaned out my sinuses after my rhinoplasty and sinus surgery. There is nobody better to work on your sinus problem. She is the Queen of Sinuses !

I recently had Dr. Shama perform sinus surgery, due to all the poylps forming. The procedure went perfectly fine, and the post-op visits are going great. If you need surgery done in her line of work, do it. I cam breathe and smell again. Thank you!
