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.

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.

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!

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.
