Patient Comments (2)
in Van Nuys, CA |
First to Review I went to my internist a couple of months ago who told me that I had had a heart attack. Obviously, I was concerned, to say the least. He referred me to Munaf Shamji, this cardioloist. I had to wait to see him for a month. He saw me for 3 minutes, ordered me back for another month. Then they cancelled the appointment and made a number of false excuses before admitting that it was their fault, and they lacked the proper technician staff. I didn't die, so I can write this.
