Dr. Shamim\'s schedule was completely full. I was sent to Dr. Shamim as a walk in. His staff worked diligently to get me in. DR. Shamim was extremely patient and thorough when explaining my diagnosis and symptoms. Although my diagnosis was challenging to accept, I felt I was in competent hands.

Dr. Shamim spent a lot of time listening to my descriptions of my head accident, conducting an extensive concussion protocol test, and individualizing my treatment plan to recover from my concussion. He took me seriously and spent time discussing my lifestyle and how to best recover. I couldn\'t have asked for more!

He also asked who else treated me to confirm all care was coordinated. He answered every question I had and made me feel at ease.

For a Tuesday appointment, I received a reminder call after 7PM on Friday. The reminder message said to bring all info from my inpatient stay. No one had asked for the info before, so I spent all weekend worrying whether I could get the records they needed in time. No one had said, your records from the inpatient stay at Baylor were automatically available to Dr. Shamim.

Dr. Shamim is by far the best neurologist I have ever seen! he is professional, kind, extremely knowledgeable, and goes out of his way to address my health issues that are somewhat linked to my actual problem by getting me prompt referrals to doctors outside of his specialty. Dr. Shamim really does care about his patients. I wish more doctors were as thorough.
