Verified Patient Reviews
He was very thorough with my examination. I felt very comfortable with him.
Nice doctor. Detail. First time visit. So far so good.
Very professional and personable. The reception and medical staff were also very courteous and relatable. Definitely going back.
Shahram Shamekh is a great doctor so are the medical assistants. It is the medical receptionist, who seems to always be there, who comes of rude and uninterested. I suggest she either works on her bedside manner or finds a new profession outside of the helping/service field.
What a polite staff and personable doctor! Dr. Shamekh was so patient and throrough. The office was so quiet and calming. Definitely keeping him as my pcp.
Such poor service. As I was meeting with the doctor, he was scrolling through his phone. He barely even looked at me. I've never experienced anything like this before- it was so disheartening. The nurse blew my vein while drawing blood, which has never happened to me before. It was so painful. I will surely be finding a new doctor.
Dr. Shamekh addressed all of my concerns with patience and care. He was very thorough and very kind. Everyone in the office was helpful, professional, and pleasant. Highly recommend!!
This one of the best experience I have ever had at the doctor office, from the time you enter to the very second you leave each and every staff is pleasant and helpful , The doctor is like no other he really listens to you he really cares
Dr. Shahram Shamekh really show's how much he cares about your health. He makes sure any thing he questions is in good standards. Staff and nurse are nice and will help execute what ever question you have for them. The nurse I had for a blood test is really smooth with her needle skills.
Very knowledgeable and friendly. Wasn't rushed or anything. Would recommend to everyone.
He is an excellent dr!
Dr Shamekh was very thorough, knowledgeable and addressed all my concerns. In my first visit I could see how caring he is for his patients. Would definitely recommend.
The doctor was nice and courteous, I can't say much about his knowledge or expertise since I only got half a physical done. However the office runs quite slowly and my golden rule is that you shouldn't wait more than 20 minutes for your appointment. I sort of wasted time coming here since I decided to leave after waiting for 30 minutes and not being seen. The first time I came here the lady at the front desk didn't know how to operate the computer at all and it was super frustrating. I would invest in better staff and more efficiency. Wouldn't come back here
Dr.Shamekh was attentive to my needs and concerns. He was kind and gave me feedback. He was very detailed and took his time to examine me. At the end, he provided me with different options to deal with my medical condition. Staff was also nice and professional and the wait time was minimal. Overall, a very great and pleasant experience. Great doctor!
Excellent annual physical visit. Dr. Shamekh was very thorough and detailed in his medical interview and physical exam. He is a good listener and explained everything to me. I was not felt rushed at all. He has state of the art medical equipment and drew my blood right in his office. Office staff were very respectful and helpful. I was seen just shortly after my arrival to my appointment. Will highly recommend Dr. Shamekh and will definitely have my family members make an appointment with him. Happy to have him as my primary care doctor.
I felt cheated! -Waited half hour for the appointment -I was told during my examination that I would need to pay an exorbitant amount due to my insurances high deductible: Which was absolutely false because my annual check-ups are covered at 100% -Office was more interested in collecting money than actually doing its due diligence in contacting my insurance which is a standard for any new patient; which I was. -After I paid the exorbitant amount I contacted my insurance and was told that I should not have been billed for the visit due to my aforementioned coverage. -I than contacted the Shamram Shamekh's office and was told in a vague unclear manner that it would take a few days to get a refund back and that someone would contact me/ no one ever contacted me. -At my follow-up visit to the office, I was told by the Doctor that I should've received a refund via mail/ (which I never received) -I than followed-up with the Doctor and was told to come in on the following Monday to pick up the refund check in person. I showed up at the time which was given to me by the the Doctor and was told by the staff that the Doctor had forgotten his check book at home/ and that I should've called before coming in. In other words this is my fault somehow... To date I have not received the refund; ***This was preventable if the office had completed its due diligence to me as a patient ***
Love the staff, love the doctors, I felt very welcomed. My visit was a little scary however I did not feel alone. I would definitely recommend this doctor.
Thorough, straight to the point.
Dr. Shamekh was helpful and a good listener. Even though the wait was longer than I expected the staff did express regret for that, which I appreciated
The doctor was professional and respectful. We went through all possible problems and he did the tests that I needed right in the office!
Very thorough doctor. Best Primary Care doctor.
Great doctor, took the time listen and explain things in details.
Dr. Shamekh is an amazing physician love him will continue to see him as my primary care provider! So happy I found him as my doctor!
Visit was prompt. Treated me no different wjen at the end of the visit I told him I was a P.A. Very thorough with the initial evaluation and answered all my questions. Will be sending my parents to him to change up their physician.
I have never experienced such warm welcoming from any Dr's office. Dr. Shahram as well as the staff are very professional and very kind.
Always good, reliable, straightforward.
Went an initial visit and consultation since I had not had a physical in 4 years. Dr. Shamekh was really good; easy to talk too - smart, focused, trusting. We created an initial plan and several tests to get a holistic view of health. Looking forward to my follow up appointments. They are in in the process of getting ready to move to a new office, which explains the wait time. Based on my first experience - I thought it was really good.
Dr. Shamekh was very professional and empathetic in his approach. He took the time to do a thorough history and physical exam, and made thoughtful recommendations based on that. He then explained everything to make sure that I was comfortable. He also made sure everything that was ordered would be covered under my insurance plan. Will definitely be coming back!
Great doctor and overall great experience. This was my first time visiting Dr. Shamekh and I would highly recommend him to everyone. He was very attentive when I spoke and really took the time to perform a thorough exam. The staff was also very pleasant to deal with. They were friendly, attentive and very accommodating. Great experience all around!
Very nice and thorough doctor. Would definitely recommend.
I waited over 30 minutes to be seen and when I was I was shuffled from room to room.
Very professional, he asked many questions and very friendly
Visited Dr. Shamekh for a general consultation after a car accident. Though Dr. Shamekh was very nice, not sure if the extra tests and additional vitamin shots were necessary that I was pushed to take. The biggest concern was the billing. The medical bills were covered by the car insurance, however Dr. Shamekh's offices also billed my Health Insurance. Though Dr. Shamekh was In-Network (I checked prior to going just in case), for the bloodwork, they used an out of network lab. Full bill was send to me. Because of the billing nightmare, I would not go back.
Everything is good about Doctor but as always there is about 30-45 min wait, so give yourself enough time if you have to go some where after doctor,s appointment.
Very professional, straightforward. Highly recommended.
made me feel safe and heard.Sometimes its hard to explain exactly what your issue is,But The Doc took the time to listen and I felt able to make him understand what i meant ,not just what i said, making him a great troubleshooter.and making me confederate he wasn't going through the motions..I have a complex issues which can cause outcome you wouldn't expect-Dr Shamekh gets cause and effect and how one system influences another.Sadly some MD don't either understand this,or take the time to put thought into the situation which they seem to forget------ is my life.
Very pleasant and has up to date technology to aid the practice.
I love him and I adore his Ma Talia. They were so thorough my skeleton couldn't even hide. Very caring and and paid attention to my concerns.
Absolutely loved my experience at Dr. Shamekh's office.
He was excellent very thorough
I was completely comfortable with everything said and it was quick and easy appointment.
The staff and Doctor Shamekh were great. Everything was explained, and options offered. Was comfortable and respectful. Some doctors baby-talk you through medical advice as if you don't know anything, but I did not get that at this office. Only thing I can say negative is that Doctor Shamekh did rush a bit through his part of the checkup. Very rapid-fire. But I didn't feel that he wasn't listening to my responses.
This was my first visit to Dr. Shamekh and I will definitely be going back. His bedside manner was very professional and you definitely get the feeling that he is listening. I would highly recommend him also the ladies working in the office are friendly yet professional. The office could use a bit updating but this is strictly aesthetic. Thank you ZocDoc for the recommendation!
They were very detailed.. but the wait is rediculous. .
Very comprehensive physical
Good doctor visit overall.
Amazing doctor! He unfortunately does not accept my insurance but I still go to him as my PCP because of the comfort level I have with him. Highly recommended!
He was awesome and so was his assistant!!
Went for a basic physical. Great bedside manner and very detailed in his examination. Glad I chose Dr. Shamekh.
He was wonderful and seemed very concerned with my health. I would definitely recommend him!
He is very professional pleasant to speak with and checks all your symptoms for accurate diagnostic and referral. I highly recommend him.
I received a very thorough annual physical. The doctor spent much time with me, explained what and why he was testing for and gave me his undivided attention for the duration of my visit.
Dr. Shamekh was honestly one of the best doctors I've ever gone to. So thorough and attentive. He was also the first doctor in my life to do blood draws; those were always done with nurses in the past. I'm so happy that I found a good internist. I will definitely be using him as my primary care physician.
Overall great experience. Being a medical professional myself, I know how long certain visits can take.
It's was very pleasant. The doctor was very efficient and effective.
Dr. Shamekh was very thorough and very easy to talk to. It was refreshing not to have to deal with an arrogant manner or feeling intimidated. He was soft-spoken, kind, understanding, and immediately dealt with my problem (high blood pressure). He spent a long time with me, even did all the bloodwork right there.
Dr. Shamekh is an amazing caring Doctor.... I was very Blessed to be his patient..... I would highly recommend him... and his office staff. Due to unseen circumstances I had to leave the state....But his care and understanding of me as a patient, carries a gratitude of a lifetime. Thank You.

Dr. Shamekh is very thorough and made me feel like I was getting the best level of care in the world. He was patient with me despite my fear of needles, which was really great. I'd highly recommend him.
He was extremely knowledgeable. I was surprised at the expert quality of care I received. I have shopped for an Internist for long 4 years and been to many offices. This was a rare experience. I am happy to have found my new Doctor. I am relieved. GREAT Doctor less stress, maybe that will lower my blood pressure.

Dr Shahram listened to my concerns for my visit. He was my 2nd opinion for pain in my neck and so he was able to prescribe proper medicine to treat the area. I was very comfortable and he was honest in his treatment to my overall health concerns.
He was great, very like able and thorough.
He is a caring provider that makes you feel like you are the only patient he has.
Dr. Shahram is very attentive and thorough. He runs tests to figure out what the cause of your symptoms are instead of blindly prescribing medication. He also genuinely cares about the patient's well-being and constantly follows up with you about your recent complaints and symptoms. His receptionists are also very professional and friendly. Highly recommended!
