I was very pleased with the care I received from Dr. Shammo. After meeting him for the first time, I felt very confident he was a doctor I could trust and count on for quality care. I felt confident in his knowledge and ability. He listened, he didn't rush or act as if he was in a hurry. I would highly recommend Dr Shammo's services. Dr. Shammo is a good one! It's like talking to a friend, because he tells you the way it is, and makes you feel like he's "got your back", regardless of the situation! A wonderful doctor.

Dr. Shammo is the last of the great ones! It's like talking to a good friend, because he tells you the way it is, and makes you feel that he's "got your back" regardless of the situation! There was a short lapse at one point, as my new insurance did not include Dr. Shammo as a possible cardiologist for me...Had to seek out a new one, which proved to be a worthless challenge. Glad now to be back and know my heart is in good care! All I can say is, I hope he doesn't plan on retiring soon!

Delightful MD Seems very positive and authoritative about his work. I am wondering at this point what the outcome will be, the unknown creates a little fear to one's situation. Time can only tell some truth. I would recommend if problems were solved but not enough experience yet.
