I've been a patient of Dr. Shama for the last 10 plus years. She is the best internal medicine doctor that I've ever visited. She listens and actually cares which is not a common trait among Doctors these days. I highly recommend Dr. Shama!!

Dr Shama has been my Doc for several years. I like a practice that is proactive and will embrace my personal practice of wellness/nutrition and lifestyle but bring the medical expertise into the mix without fighting that. She listens well, asks great questions, brings a lot of knowledge to my care and works with me to find the best course of care for me. I was so grateful to find her. She is caring, thorough, incredibly smart! Her office is spa-like and relaxing and the staff are warm and friendly. I have and would referred others! Definitely.

She does tests that you will not know about until you receive the bill in the mail. This is a common tactic used to bill higher. Don’t use her unless you have a low deductible.

I had my first appointment with Dr. Shama recently and was so impressed with her knowledge and professionalism. I was able to get an appointment with ease and didn't wait in her waiting room for more than 5 minutes. I loved my experience so much, I sent my husband shortly after and he was equally impressed. Highly recommend Dr. Shama!
