I think Dr. Shams is the best, very kind and friendly and truly cares about her patients, If I ever need to recommend a cancer Doctor she would definitely be the one I consider myself very blessed to have her as my oncologist


Dr. Shams has been such a pleasure to have by my side. She's so accessible, so upfront and honest, doesn't sugarcoat anything but has a great bedside manner. Knowing she will be the doctor I see for many years to come gives me great comfort. Would recommend her to anyone needing a hematologist.


Dr. Shams has a wonderful bedside manner! She always asks about what's going on in my life and remembers my daughters and asks about them. She is thorough, provides time for all of my questions, and is consistently frank but thoughtful in educating me about my prognosis. I am grateful to have Dr. Shams as my oncologist!


Dr. Samantha Shams has truly been a Godsend for my father. She is empathetic and makes him feel that he and his well-being matters. I feel that my father has a true medical advocate. She collaborated with Dr. Kahn (the oncologist). The two of them came up with a plan that has drastically improved my father's outlook and well-being. This difficult time has been made much more bearable due to the superlative care provided by Dr. Shams. We are deeply grateful!
