Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Shammas sounds like a great doctor. I should’ve been stoked to be referred to him. Unfortunately he has incompetent staff, like so many other practitioners I have dealt with. I went in for a follow up, was told not to pay my copay as insurance usually picks up the charges for follow up appointments. I then received a $475 bill. Because I didn’t pay my copay, my insurance picked up the bare minimum and forwarded the cost to me. Simply put, most people can’t afford errors like this. So, I will not be getting a stent, and will remain on blood thinners probably forever. I’m sorry, but if someone’s staff can give such lousy advise that is directly related to their profession, it makes me question the advice I’m getting from the entire office. I don’t make my goal in life paying for the mistakes of others.

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.
