Visited Dr. Shamsi based on others reviews. I completely agree and, although there was a rare minor issue that happened, Dr. Shamsi made sure I was all right before releasing me and called me directly to follow-up the same night. He is caring, thoughtful and very professional.

Dr. Shamsi is awesome! Wonderful bedside manner, definitely keeps a normally awkward/uncomfortable experience as light-hearted and relaxing as possible. He is very thorough, patient, and asks many times along the way if you have any questionsor concerns, and if you understood what he was saying. Dr. Shamsi is very skilled in his profession, very knowledgeable and trustworthy. He is actually the first doctor recommended by ZocDoc who I feel is exceptional in his arena and for whom I actually took the time to write a review for, and he and his wonderful staff definitely deserve it. I'll definitely continue my GI visits here. Thanks, Dr. Shamsi!

I really enjoyed my time with the doctor. However, my appointment was at 1pm and the door to the office was locked until two receptionists arrived carrying a bunch of food around 1:25pm. I sat on the floor outside for nearly40 minutes and they seemed clueless to why I was even there. When I finally said, Hi, I had an appointment at 1? One receptionist said "uhh yeahhhhh, we had to pick up food". No apology, explanation. Very, very odd. I told the Doctor and he seemed very concerned and as if he was going to take action. I will still be seeing him again, it was just a really bad first experience. Parking was also expensive, cash only.

Took his time. Gave me great information and feedback. Took the time to discuss my particular insurance, and how that would affect the procedures being discussed. Very knowledgeable on the medical and the insurance/cost info. Not lookingfor my doctor to be my friend, but I am looking for a straight talker with a human side. Dr. Shamsi was all that.

I was very happy to be see this Dr. He is able to engage and communicate with you. He makes every effort to understand your issues and deal with you accordingly. He has a sense of humor and a warm manner.He doesn't seem a little 'shady' like a number of Dr's I've had to visit recently. He was clear and spoke with me openly with no sign of the usual patronization you get from Dr's and was genuinely interested in helping me solve my issues. It was a very productive encounter for me, in spite of the fact that my issues are really not in his specialty. His staff are really excellent; efficient and helpful and they anticipate the Dr's requests. They are happy to answer any questions you might have. Dr Shamsi performed my Colonoscopy. I felt very confident in this Dr's approach and abilities.

Best doctor appointment I have ever had. Ever! The nicest, most professional group of people I have ever met. I went in quite nervous, and left elated. Dr. Radi Shamsi is wonderful! I wish all doctors and their offices were just like this one.

Dr. Shamsi was fantastic - he spent a full hour with me (never happens with specialists!) going through my symptoms, history, treatment plan and exam, making sure I fully understood and was completely comfortable. Couldn't be more happy with his service.
