This is the second time Dr Shams has not talked to me after my husband has had Ablations. I am here at the St Mary’s hospital and a nurse calls me. I asked her questions and she had to read the chart to me. So unprofessional especially when he has been through Quadruple bypass w/Maze by Dr Phizer- note he did not talk to me after a major operation either and yes, I was in the waiting room. Then Ablations. It may be partly St Mary’s hospital lack of organization too.

Dr Shams is one of the best doctors I've ever dealt with. He is extremely knowledgeable and EXPLAINS things and is amazing at answering questions. I was referred from some distance away and will GLADLY make the trip to see him. He also has very personable staff. To me, that says a lot about how they feel being at work with him.
