He took all the time needed to explain what certain prescription drugs did and how to taper them down. He was thorough, unhurried, and truly a knowledgeable doctor. I trust him implicitly.

I am always pleased with dr shammas and Annette I always feel that they care about what happens to me. While it is sad that healthcare has come to surveys to allow people who are sick express their opinion of theirvisit. It's sad that nothing is taken into consideration on the employees behalf it is strictly on what I say. Thankfully I'm honest and told the truth about dr shammas and Annette.
