Dr. Hamed A Shabaneh Altamimi has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Horrible!

I have been a patient of Dr. Al-Tamimi for 9 months and the staff refuse to return a phone call concerning rest results. I have had this problem since the beginning, but it has gotten ridiculous. I have brain cancer and am waiting on a serious brain surgery because I have a bacterial infection, so this is a serious concern. On this occasion I have been waiting for 2 weeks to learn the results of my latest test. While the nurse refuses to tell me the results, my tumor grows. This is shameful and cruel.

no problem

I have been to Dr. Al-Tamimi a few times, I read the other reviews on here and I felt that I should leave one. I am getting a little older and have had my share of doctors and what I have found is that most people respond to you as you respond to them. Dr. Al-Tamimi has had cause to get after me for doing things wrong when it concerned my treatment and I appreciate that he is concerned enough to do that. His staff has been nothing but helpful and pleasant. Every work place has it's own environment and people being human, must leave a home that maybe less than perfect and deal with people that are fearful for their quality of life. With all these factors going on in each individual visit I can understand that there may have been some unpleasant visits, but I will not let it take away from my quality of treatment and I believe Dr. Al-Tamimi does a very professional job with the patients best interests in the for front of each visit.

DR ALTAMIMI

In my opinion he does not spend enough time with patient..and his nurse ignores what he tells her to do..leaves it to patient to carry out his orders ..which patient has no authority to be able to do this...Instead of Dr following thru with problem at that time ..He wants to push you into scheduling colonoscopy..an I also had problem with one of my colonoscopies..patients were scheduled to be seen in office an he left me waiting till finished with them..In which I was sicker than I had ever been when I left..I'm guessing my blood sugar got to low..no one seemed concerned that I looked like the walking dead..could not even sit up on the way home..normally you can't tell I had anything done..When I have called after certain procedures due to swelling or pain..I'm just told to go to ER..an were talking bout 6 or 7 hours if not more..you would think he would know what the problem is since he did the procedures..or at least see patient ..an perhaps he could get a patient seen faster at ER..He has never shown me or explained blood test result..nor any other test results ..I'm had to ask for copies..One of the test results were not accurate from pathology..There was reading that was higher than top of scale ...what I read an what Dr told me wasn't the same..I am very disappointed because I had heard good things about him. I called in with concerns about taking certain meds at the same time..His nurse told me it was ok to take them at same time..I let her know that the paper work I had wasn't saying it was ok..then she said she'd get back to me..my info was correct ..not what she had told me initially..since then she has had an attitude with me...I am not legally qualified to order my meds..but instead of her doing what the Dr. Had said...she told me to call pharmacy an let them know how long Dr wanted me on medication..knowing full well I was not qualified to do so..I did find out why I hadn't rec'd ' all of my meds ..she tried to flip the script an act like it was my fault..luckily I got a reference number to my conversation with them..I can't say I'd refer him to others..only tell them about my situation an let them be the judge
