Have you seen Dr. James Shammas?
May 2nd, 2015Inaccurate diagnosis and inept staff
The only reason I am giving 2 stars is the fact that he was thorough with testing. Other than that his diagnosis was off. Said I had alcohol withdrawl seizures. Tried telling him I drink only 2-3x a month.. I know from personal experience those seizures only happen to those who drink for weeks and months on end then try quitting cold turkey. Then the eeg specialist told me I didn't need an eeg( turns out they read the chart from last year) ... After that I got a call saying my eeg was normal(read from a different secretary) again read my chart from last year said I was normal.. Turns out i had abnormalities this entire time. You are responsible for your staff's action's Dr Shammas. I will never go to you again. You are far from thorough in your diagnosis only thorough in testing. I am generous in giving you 2 stars. AVOID at all costs if you are going for accurate seizure related diagnosis.

September 12th, 2012Great neurologist
February 18th, 2009When other doctors failed, Dr. Shammas was there.
I had seen other neurologists about my migraines before seeing Dr. Shammas. After a few typical meds were prescribed for me that didn't work I was basically given up on with the attitude that there was nothing more to do. Just suffer through the migraines. Dr. Shammas took the time to find new options and follow up with which ones worked, didn't work and partially worked. Then working withmewe found a regime of meds that have been keeping my migraines to just a small number over the last few years. Thank you for taking the time to really listen and help me.
