Always friendly and courteous staff and receptionist, and Dr . Shamsi is amazing and I wish I could clone him and have him as my PCP as well as my bariatric MD!

Dr. Shamsi and everyone in his office are so kind and polite. Given that he deals with peoples weight, which can be a very difficult subject for a lot of people, he listens and is caring and thoughtful. The receptionist and nurses are kind as well and super sweet. For my first appointment with him I was very nervous for reasons mentioned above but every single person in the office made me feel welcome. I have only seen him once so far but I have recommended him to anyone I talk to about issues with their weight!
