Patient Comments (7)
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!

I had my first visit today. Dr Shama's patient rapport was well above average! She was very knowledgeable and listened carefully to my concerns. She had a perfect blend of medical insistence and allowing me to choose my wellness path, which is key for me in a physician. Their portal system is easy- helps me organize my followup. Staff was very friendly and professional! The office is clean and relaxing. So happy I chose Milton Medical Group.
