I have recommended Dr. Shamim to my family and friends for many years. She takes great care examining and diagnosing patients. If perhaps a test result is ambiguous she will repeat it or try another way. She is professional and also friendly. If she can help with perhaps providing a sample medicine she does so. I know she will not recommend treatment or surgery unless necessary. The technicians and all office staff are friendly and helpful.
