Dr. Shammas is warm, caring, and very concerned that you get the care that you need. She confirmed my "intuition" within 5 min. of my visit after several doctors and even family members began doubting me. We drove all the way from Florida just to get somebody who knows about complex autoimmune disease to listen to me and it was well worth it. Her follow up care in the transition home has been amazing as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Shammas. She collaborates WITH me, not AT me. :)

A truly appalling experience of patient neglect. The only thing this doctor did successfully was to order tests. Find a professional who follows up when your blood work gets in or your MRI is completed to go over the underlying issues of your illness. Dr. Shammas charged $660 for a 15 minute visit and never called to go over my diagnosis or test results. One of which was an important indicator that I need treatment immediately. If your health is a concern - go to someone else.

Dr. Shamas took extra time and extraordinary efforts to help diagnose my Lupus related issues that other doctors found challenging. She is very warm and cares about her patients. I will travel from the Bay Area to Southern Ca to be treated by her.
