I value Dr. Shamim and all he has done for me. The only concern is the 40 minute wait time I had to endure before even being seen by the nurse.

I got the appointment time wrong and the doctor was kind enough to accommodate. My son is autistic, also, so this meant the world to me. His demeanor was kind which decreased my son\'s anxiety. I would, without hesitation, recommend Dr. Shamim.
