Dr smith sham is a wonderful and a great dr
in Cypress, TX |
Dr. Smith-Sham is an outstanding doctor who puts her patients first. She makes sure that you have the right connection to live a healthy life. I have been with Dr. Smith-Sham for about two years and I am still highly satisfied with her caring service. I recently had a surgical procedure performed by Dr. Smith-Sham and from beginning to end she made sure that I was mentally and physically stabled. I have recovered very well since the surgery and I am thankful for Dr. Smith-Sham and her team.

Humble, TX |
Very long wait time. I spend at least 2 to 3 hours there. The office staff didn't return my calls. The doctor is really great. Its not worth the wait though.
Houston, TX |
Dr. Smith-Sham is very thorough. She explains everything explicitly and makes sure you understand the diagnosis and treatment plan. The only downside is the wait tI mean, I've had to wait for two hours. To me it's worth the wait because of her thoroughness.

Houston, TX |
Dr. Smith-Sham has been a great doctor over the last 2 years. She is very thorough and truly cares about the patient. She is very knowledgeable and professional, and if she is not sure about something she is honest and researches it until she knows the answer. Her staff is going through a transition, and while at times can be frustrating, they improving quickly and they will be up to her level soon.

I am extremely impressed with the level of Dr. Smith-Sham professionalism, care I received and the kindness. The Doctor Stephanie Smith-Sham made me feel that I was in safe hands, she genuinely cares about your well-being, pay attention to details and keep investigating. I appreciated very much her follow-up and willingness to answer any questions, to explain details in a warm, friendly manner. I was treated very well and would highly recommend this doctor to family & friends. Excellent care!

I love Dr. Smith-Sham. She delivered my daughter, and now I am back for my second pregnancy. Cannot say enough good things about her! She is extra cautious. Her staff has improved somewhat from before.

She takes care of her patients.Informs them with their needs and everything.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Smith-Sham. She is kind and always takes the time to listen to you...which is more than I can say for her staff. They are THE WORST. It took me 6 months to get them to update my name after I was married and they will never pick up the phone much less return phone calls for test results. As great as Dr. Smith-Sham is, having to deal with her staff is not worth it.
in Houston, TX |
At first this provider was great and was i thankful for her care after she helped me with an issue even though I was frustrated with the 2 hour wait time. I continued to see her for my pregnancy and that was when things started not to go good; teling me incorrect information, not telling me anything then trying to switch providers felt like a nightmare. was not able to get records sent over and got the run around. I hate to say this, but I urge you to avoid care here, it is not worth your time.
in Cypress, TX |
Love her and her staff! She delivered my daughter who is now 4yrs old. Being diabetic and 40yrs. old, I didn't trust anyone else to take care of us. My husband took a job and moved 6hrs away and still without a doubt decided I would stay under her care in Houston until we had our baby. Totally understandable that there are times where the wait is longer than usual, but it goes to show how well she takes care of her patients. Recommending 100%!
in Cypress, TX |
Dr. Smith-Sham has been my doctor since moving to the Houston area. She has delivered my last two children. She is a wonderful doctor who takes time with her patients to explain procedures and treatment options. She is extremely caring and has a perfect bedside manner. Her office is conveniently located connected to the hospital and her staff is extremely helpful and kind. Since starting with Dr. Smith-Sham her time in the waiting room has significantly decreased.
