I showed up 30 mins early and was seen an hour late - with at least ten patients coming in after me and being seen before me. When I was called into a room, I waited there for about 45 mins. However, I was very impressed by Dr. Shamim's resident, then Dr. Shamim. Both took time and asked lots of questions to understand my full history with epilepsy and ensure I was well prepared to monitor my levels while pregnant. In the end, I'm very happy with this new provider.
