Verified Patient Reviews
I’ve had a lot of trouble finding an OB-GYN in the city that I love and don’t dread visiting. This was my first visit with Dr. Shams and I loved her! She was very professional and informative. Highly recommend.
I was extremely happy with my visit! I was having a rough morning and the staff was so friendly and understanding. Dr. Shams was awesome, she made me feel comfortable and at ease through out my whole visit. She's so soothing and makes you feel okay to talk about anything without feeling uncomfortable.
She was fabulous!! Highly recommend her.
Dr. Shams was very kind, she made me feel comfortable during my first visit and I would be happy to continue having her as my gynecologist.
It was my first appointment ever at the GYNO and she made me feel so comfortable. We talked about things that most people would make awkward but she made me feel safe and secure about our conversation. I highly recommend her!!!
Dr. Shams took the time to answer all of my questions and explained everything she did throughout the appointment to make sure I was comfortable. She took the time to get to know me as a new client and I'd highly recommend her!
Dr. Shams was great! It was my first gyn visit, and it went so smoothly. She was so friendly and really knows her stuff. She educated on everything she talked about and recommended. Her staff was really nice too! I look forward to my follow up as well. I definitely recommend her :)
I had a positive experience with Dr. Shams in-person, but she only gave me a 11-month prescription even though insurance only allows an annual visit every 12 months. She was incredibly rude when I called for one additional month of birth control - and raised her voice with me - in an attempt to show that she gave me the right amount of months for my prescription even though I was short one month. I’ve never been yelled at by a doctor. She only cares about being “right” and is not supportive - which is terrible because she is a ob/gyn.
Dr. Shams is absolutely wonderful. She is kind, helpful and extremely knowledgable. She makes the entire process easy and low stress. Would HIGHLY recommend.

Excellent doctor, very kind and caring to an extremely nervous and first time patient. Knew exactly what she was doing and made the experience a breeze. Very grateful for this doctor for her expertise, professionalism, and good sense of humor.
It was a good first visit. The assistants were professional and friendly. Dr. Shams is also very professional and was able to answer all our concerns.
I already recommended her to my friend, she was the ultimate profession!
Dr Shams was very professional and explained each procedure to me in detail and the reason for the procedure during my appointment. Highly recommend!
Dr. Shams was a referral by a friend of mine -- and I loved her! She was very sweet, followed up like she promised, and was very relaxed (in a good way). l'd highly recommend!
It was my first time having an appointment with Dr. Shams and it went great. I did wait around 30 minutes after my appointment time to be seen, but I didn't mind. She's so friendly and I'll definitely be making her my permanent doctor.
Wonderful doctor, kind, caring, knowledgeable, and very thorough. I am staying with her for life.
Wonderful! Highly recommend

Dr. Shams is lovely, and very knowledgeable. She was warm while still being professional, and had all of the answers to my questions. I highly recommend her!!
Absolutely loved the doctor and the staff. Everyone was very pleasant, professional, and knowledgeable. After a number of terrible experiences with other ob/gyns in the area I am so thrilled I found Dr. Shams.
Doctor Shams was so thorough and kind. First time I've felt really cared for at an OBGYN. She asked important questions that other docs dismiss and took the time to explain things in a way I understood.
She was very friendly, made me feel very comfortable and answered all of my questions. Highly recommend her.
Front desk was nice. The medical assistant who took my health stats (weight, BP, etc) was not friendly and just seemed to follow a routine rather than read the results and convey it with the patient. I wanted to ask her to redo my BP measurement (after reading the result upside down from the machine) since it was unusually high. Also, I wasn't calm enough at intake time because she had me move around the room as I hadn't gotten myself acquainted to where I'm supposed to sit and deposit my heavy winter coat. Dr. Shams is very knowledgeable and friendly. She provided me with adequate health education regarding my health, and I felt comfortable reporting my health concerns.
She's great and very personable, thorough and detailed
What can I say, I am quite pleased with my overall visit with Dr. Shams and her entire staff. They were very polite and courteous from the time I entered the office. Dr. Shams come out and greeted me with a smile and led me to her office for a consultation. There she asked all the right question and explained in depth my next step for my present and future visits. The office itself is beautiful, clean and well kept. I would definitely recommend Dr. Shams and her staff to family and friends!
Honestly, my appointments with Dr. Shams have been simply wonderful! She's attentive to my needs and never leaves me feeling: "Oh, am I the crazy one for worrying about this..."
First time patient and was seen right away! Seemed very concerned with my medical history and my well-being as a patient. Would highly recommend.
Dr, Shams is a caring, respectful and diligent doctor. She was very understanding of my needs, which is so important when you see an gynecologist.
Professional and passionate. I used to dread going to my GYN until I met Dr. Shams. She makes me feel at ease and the pap smear is painless and quick. Highly recommend!
She was absolutely wonderful! Highly recommend her.
The overall office and appointment experience was less than satisfactory. Having my appointment at 12, my vitals weren't taken until 12:50 and I didn't see a doctor until well after 1. They stated the reasoning being an absent nurse and I understand things can happen, but acknowledgement of this issue would have allowed me to avoid missing work and wasting my time. I am disappointed.
Dr. Shams is a dream come true. She is very thorough and understanding.
Love her! She's so sweet and has a lot of knowledge, I'm so glad I found dead her :-)
Very warm and friendly and patient.
Dr. Shams is warm, lovely, knowledgeable, and patient. I am a fan after first visit. She took time to answer all my questions and to explain all alternatives. Her recommended re-visits are reasonable and not intended to charge more fees.
This review is about Dr. Shams herself, not about the receptionists. She is absolutely amazing, because of a scheduling mix-up, I had to leave the office and come back 3 hours later (which is not Dr. Shams's fault at all). She personally apologized for the delay and explained the situation to me. She is very professional, very caring and very patient when I asked her all the questions. The exam itself was easy and painless. As a young female herself, Dr. Shams is very personable and relatable, and not judgmental at all, which made my gyno appointment much easier. Definitely highly recommend!
Dr. Shams was great, professional, kind and she explained things incredibly well. I would highly recommend.
I was a first time patient and Dr. Shams was being very detailed asking my GYN history. She answered all my questions and even drew detailed graphs for me to help me understand.
Wonderful doctor took her time to answer all questions.. showed interested in all my concerns
