Dr. Shamsi did not listen to anything I had to say, he did not read my chart or look at anything important within my chart before he finally came in the room (I had to wait to be seen for an hour), he had completely forgotten our conversations regarding medications he prescribed me, and he was just unknowledgable in general.
