Because I had done all the new patient forms online, I sat down for about 30 seconds before they were already calling me back. I appreciate the time Dr Shamani spent with me. She did not make me feel rushed andmade sure that my questions were answered. She even ordered labs that no one has ordered for me before so a huge plus for that. She did ask me about a few things that I had already mentioned to her previously but other than that, it was a positive experience and I look forward to returning to her and her practice.

Dr. Shamani was really great. She was informative, attentive, and listened to my concerns and made great suggestions. I feel like she was one of the only GP’s I’ve ever had that really listened to me. She also noticed a fewthings that I never did and I will be back to see her again in about a month. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a doctor.

Very compassionate and knowledge. I have an "orphan's disease" and she actually knew of and understood my condition. Took my pain seriously, was understanding when I came back for my follow up and prescribed and alternative treatment whichfinally did work and allowed me to continue daily activities without pain. Very grateful, only moved doctors due to distance after my relocation. Would recommend to anyone.

WORST DOCTOR I'VE EVER VISITED! Unfortunately, I had to visit her twice- both time the wait time reached almost TWO HOURS! The worst part was probably when the doctor finally arrived and apologized for the waiting, when I naively said "it'sok, your staff told me you've been stuck on road behind an accident" and she replied "oh no, that's just what I told them to say because it sounds better" (?!?!?) Seriously unbelievable. She is a doctor who does not respect her patients and does not embarrassed to admit her lies to her patients.

I was very excited to come here with how great the reviews are, but the experience was terrible. When approaching the desk, I said I had an appointment and the response was "ok." and they just looked at me. I thenasked if I needed to sign in and the normal process began. I was charged over triple what my copay should be. I didn't see the total until my card had already been swiped and I thought I made a mistake in how much the copay should be so I didn't dispute it. I thought I was coming in for a full exam, but all she did was take my vitals, fill my rxs, and give me a flu shot. She had me schedule a follow up for my exam that I thought I'd be having today, with another copay. She gave me a paper to go to a lab, where I'll probably be charged once again. So, I will have to go to 3 different appointments for my full exam. The worst part was when she tried to convince me to get injections for the wrinkles on my forehead that I've had since I was a child. I told her I've always had them, that I couldn't afford them, that I didn't want them, but the response each time was that I needed it. What kind of Dr attempts to pressure their patients into getting cosmetic injections? I will not be going back to this office.
