Dr. Shams has been my oncologist since September 2021 after I changed doctors. I am so lucky to have found Dr. Shams. She is very caring and proactive. She continues to seek alternative treatments as I have progressed. I feel confident and trust her with my care. The office staff is very responsive within a few hours with call-backs, Rx orders etc. Infusion and phlebotomy staff are top notch and very professional. I am very pleased with Dr. Shams.

03/31/2022

I am a cancer patient. Due to an interruption in the insurance industry challenges this was my first visit with Dr. Shams office and her staff. Just walking in the office I received big smiles and happy positive greetings. The staff was very patient and kind. I've been looking for a doctor that specialized in my type of cancer, listens, cares and that's not in a hurry/rushing to get out of the room and in the next room to the next patient. Dr. Shams was extremely professional with her question and her delivery of patients care Information to me. She wasn't in a rush! She helped me clearly understand some of the changes that I needed to make quickly to continue to live (Accomplish a Cancer free life) . When I mentioned my pain areas she was genuinely concerned and asked detailed questions. I haven't felt this sense of care out side of the Windship Cancer Institution (my surgeon). I regret not knowing about her when I started this life changing journey.
