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 doctors make 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 to complete my history. The physical exam other tests that followed were quick and I was out of the office quickly.

The wait is so long at this office. Appointment was at 11AM, did not see the doctor until after noon. Front desk needs to do a better job of scheduling so patients aren't sitting in an empty office for over an hour.

Dr. Shammas was fine. She was easy to talk to. But I waited for nearly 2 hours before seeing her. Over one hour in the waiting room. The remaining time in the patient room the remaining amount of time. No one came to say anything to me or try to reschedule the appointment for me. The receptionist told me they didn't see my appointment. But didn't bother to tell me the wait time would be long. Everyone was it's dragging on everything. I'm coming in from a long weeekend. So I want to give them a second chance. But also note parking costs $2/15 minutes. Up to $20.

Dr. Zacca-Shammas is very thorough, professional, patient, and down to earth. She took the time to answer all of my Qs and didn't rush through the visit. Provided me with some referrals I wasn't able to find on my own, and explained everything I needed thoroughly and then Some. She's lovely, and I'm so glad I found her!

Dr Shammas is a wonderful doctor, but the office is disorganized. I waited an hour to see her. When she finally came in, and I mentioned she was late, she didn't seem overly apologetic. She shrugged and said she didn't realize what time the appointment was. (There wasn't an emergency or any other real reason for the hour delay. I would still be frustrated, but it would be more palatable.) After the appointment I needed blood drawn. I was again left in the room sitting indefinitely waiting for a nurse. If I hadn't gone out to the office to check on things I would still be waiting. Apparently both nurses went to lunch. No one thought to tell me, or coordinate times for me to be get my blood drawn. They just left me in the waiting room and forgot about me. Coming to see the doctor in the middle of the work day is tough. There should be some urgency or common courtesy to the patients and respect for their time. In my practice, this would warrant firing. Dr. Shammas is a thoughtful doctor, but the wait (for what appears to be no good reason) and disorganization are major issues.
