Dr. Shamsi is an awesome provider! He is genuinely concerned about how I am doing and is an advocate to my well being. I have recommended him to family members and friends, which they all see him now for their weight loss journey (all 4 patients!). I truly look forward to quarterly visits with him. He is fast at responding via the portal and encouraging new things to help me with my goals! Truly the best!
