I had a consultation with Dr. Shammas and she made sure to understand the full extent of my medical history. Great bedside manner. She asked who my other doctors were and reassured me of at least one of them. She coveredeverything and more. Very glad to have her as my new primary care physician!

This doctor wasn't terrible but I won't be returning. I really hate the doctors that don't listen because it gives me the impression that they don't really care and just out here for the check and not my health. I camehere to get my well care exam as well have Malak Zacca write me a request to check for gluten sensitivity. I practically had to beg for blood work for that because she kept insisting that I didn't have it which I hated even though I told her my dermatologist suggested it. Funny thing is, she asked why I was so bloated? Which I thought was my norm and could've been a sign of gluten sensitivity per my new doc. Then I got a bill for extra blood work for vitamin D and thyroid which she claims is routine. I've never got my thyroid checked as a routine for a physical. I'm just frustrated because I'm paying a doctor I wasn't fond of for a test I didn't ask for. Which still gives me the impression that she was out here for a check because everything that I asked for was free. Not happy! She's not a good listener and I came here for the good reviews. Welp, lesson learned. Won't be returning! She's definitely one of those doctors that I think would NOT go above and beyond to make sure I'm good health wise. She's good for the basics I guess.

I saw Dr. Shammas recently and she was okay, there are definitely better doctors out there. I originally wasn’t going to leave a review however I just got my bill and apparently I owe some absurd “office charge” even my labtests cost close to nothing so what the heck did this doctor even charge for? This is the worst service I’ve ever had and I would not recommend this place to anyone in the future.

Dr. Zacca-Shammas is fantastic. I highly recommend her. Scheduling needs improvement. This appointment commenced late. My prior appointment, scheduled via Zoc-Doc, received confirmation from Zoc-Doc, then showed up and Dr. Z-S was onvacation. I feel this practice want's Zoc-Doc customers, but isn't interested in dealing with Zoc-Doc and haven't integrated the scheduling system with their own. Good luck parking.

Absolutely love Dr. Shammas. Highly recommend! However, would like to point out that it is extremely difficult to call her office ans talk to anyone. I get a voicemail box everytime I call, even when I am returning their calls soit makes it really difficult to communicate anything to them. The doctor is amazing though and worth going through the somewhat ridiculous front office

She was wonderful. Smart, warm, and super helpful. Had a course of treatment planned right away. The front desk was 100% transparent about insurance and money owed, and I only waited about 20 minutes—which isn't bad considering most doctorsmake you wait at least 30+ minutes. So relieved to find a good doctor I can count on.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Zacca-Shammas so we had to cover lots of past medical history. She was able to notate the answers on her device with ease, which limited the amount of time spent waiting for her tocomplete my history. The physical exam other tests that followed were quick and I was out of the office quickly.
