Dr. Shammas was timely, patient with our questions, and shared his knowledge and professional opinions in a gentle and positive way. His use of medical "speak" was easy to understand and he answered all questions thoroughly. While with us in the examining room, Dr. Shammas put us at ease with his unhurried nature, his relaxed posture, his calm and pleasant facial expressions and his ability to listen to our concerns. It was clear that Dr. Shammas had read the notes of the referring physicians and was well familiar with my husband's case. All of this contributed to dispelling the anxiety we felt at the beginning of the appointment and we left feeling more knowledgeable and confident about my husband's future health. Kudos also to the Clinical Support/Medical Assistant, Shae, who quickly and professionally conferred with Dr. Shammas and gave us concise directions on future appointments and medications as we left.
