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.

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.

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.

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 20minutes 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

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 artmedical 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 at100% -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 ***

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 holisticview 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!

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 agreat 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.
