Dr. Shams is a wonderful doctor. She's very knowledgeable, caring, personable as others recommended. I drive far away from her office all because of the excellent rates and reviews and I can tell from my own experiences and am grateful to have such an amazing doctor. I would strongly recommend her. Additionally, her staff are just like her, kind, nice, friendly and extremely helpful- from front office (Jessica), to her nurses ( Malissa and another girl), lab girls, everyone was amazing! Thanks so much Dr. Shams and your staff!
