INstant success

Dr Shamsham did an procedure yesterday morning looking for blockages around my heart. Dr Shamsham found the blockage and put in a stent. Today I walked the dog to the postbox and back home via the lakefront climbed the hill with NO tightness or breathlessness. I am very gratefull to Dr Shamsham for what is for me a momementous occasion. This is one very happy old Sailor.

Horrific Experience

He had an obsession with a cardiac birth defect that I haven't had problems with in years. Despite telling him repeatedly that wasn't my chief complaint, he still obsessed about it. Then he did a transradial cardiac cath with inadequate anesthesia and the pain during the procedure was excruciating. I will never return to his office again.

Five Stars

This doctor is totally focused on your office visit or procedure. He is very professional while showing a very caring and concerned side. Other doctors have stated their respect for him and his medical knowledge and accuracy. I would highly recommend Dr. Shamsham. One negative is his receptionist comes across initially as distant, although efficient.
