Only saw this physician 1x when my husband was in ICU in Vidant. He was very rude and uncaring. Essentially only mumbled about his assessment and did not talk to me. Left the room as abruptly as he entered. I told the staff he was not allowed to see my husband again.

It has been three years now since I transferred my care to Dr. Shammas after I moved to Greenville. Prior to that I was in and out of the hospital and used to have a test or procedure each time a had a complaint. One of those procedures almost cost me my life. Dr. Shammas follows a very thoughtful and scientific approach in treatment. I have done so well and haven't had a single test or procedure on my heart since .

Was sent here by my surgeon to get clearance for surgery. Dr Shamass informed me that was not necessary and did not do that. My surgeon said anesthesiologist worth his weight would want me checked out first at age 53. Dr. shamass seemed very irritated and that I was wasting his time. I felt like a fool for being there even though my surgeon made the appointment.. Sr shamass said should anything go wrong with surgery, only then would he step in. I feel like I shouldn't even be charged?
