Dr. Shammas was super personable and took her time in seeing me. I appreciated that I could speak freely about allmy concerns and she took me seriously and gave me helpful, knowledgeable recommendations about what to do. I'm pretty selective about finding a doctor I feel comfortable with, and Dr. Shammas was fanatastic!

Dr. Shammas made me feel immediately comfortable and welcomed. When I first walked in, she was in the front of the office making jokes with her assistants and laughing about a minor set back with a computer system down. Having notbeen to the doctor in awhile and feeling a little anxious, I was immediately put at ease and made to feel like I had become a part of the family. Her smile is warm and she really knows how to make you feel included. I learned all about her family and her children and she had such a healthy balance of warmth and exceedingly impressive knowledge. I had a lot of questions to check off of my list, but the appointment did not take long at all and she took care of everything I needed to get done. I’m excited to go back.

Today was my first visit with Dr. Shammas. I felt that she was a very good dr. I was satisfied with her and felt I was in good hands. I was referred to Dr Shammas by another excellent dr so Iam very happy with my visit today. She listens well, takes notes, genuinely cares and offers very good suggestions. I liked her a lot.

Overall, I had a great visit with Dr Zacca-Shammas. It was my first visit as a new patient for an annual physical and I had no issues during my visit. I barely sat down in the waiting room before I wascalled into one of her rooms. A short wait there and she was in to chat with me. She was kind and friendly and made me feel comfortable. For a first time appointment, I was happy with how it went and will definitely return in the future.

I've been going to Dr. Shammas on and off for over five years (besides a brief stint when I was not in L.A.) She always listens if I have concerns and makes sure I get treated in a way where Ifeel reassured and listened to as a patient. Her front office is super quick and I'm rarely in the office longer than 30-40 minutes total.

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
