Dr shams is exceptional as a doctor and as a human being. She has cared for me and about me on my journey with colon cancer. I appreciate her treatment so much that despite the fact that I have moved 400 miles away and am located in the middle of probably other great doctors, I am continuing to come back to her for my treatments and scans. I recognize her skills and concerns and I'm not going to let 400 miles separate us. I don't have time or energy to sort thru doctors here in the Raleigh area. I know a good thing when I see it. Dr Shams is #1. I am making this post as I travel back to Raleigh from a visit with her.
The most caring and dedicated doctor I have ever had. I am almost two years into my cancer journey and she truly saved my life.
