15/06/14 5 5 5 5 After suffering chronic lower back pain for 7 years, the problem progressed into a severely herniated disc. I was afraid of surgery so for a year I did physiotherapy, acupuncture, massage, walking, and bed rest. My posture improved and I got stronger but unfortunately the herniation worsened. In the end I had to go to Emergency because I couldn't pee or poop. I'm very glad I went to Toronto Western because Dr. Shamji quite simply saved my life. He is very gentle and kind, thoughtful and patient. Now I can walk, sit, stand, and my bodily functions are back to normal. Best of all, the sciatic pain is gone. I feel most sensations again, and only experience low back pain when I am over active. A great doctor working with a great spinal care team; for my entire hospital visit I knew that I was well cared for and safe. I'm glad I did physio because it kept me strong enough for recovery, but surgery was the only option to get me to that point. I'm lucky Dr. Shamji was there to help.  Respond

28/08/13 5 5 5 5 The consult we had with Dr. Shamji was far beyond our expectations. He presented as a very kind, understanding and extremely knowledgable individual who took the extra time to review all of my husbands options. Our experience was exceptional!  Respond

15/05/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Shamji operated on my husband's back and replaced a disc. He was incredibly detailed in his explainations. Provided the pros and cons of surgery and all the possible side effects. We never felt rushed. On the second day home from surgery he was in a lot of pain. We called his office and Dr. Shamji returned our call within half hour - and pleasant as usual. It's been 6 months since the surgery and my husband feels amazing and back at work. Great Doctor!  Respond

09/09/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Shamji saw me in consultation quickly after my fam.doc referred me to him. He was kind and respectful and had a great team working with him - he operated on my back when my sciatica was agonizing, and now I'm recovering smoothly and pain free. Kudos to Toronto Western for recruiting him!  See Responses

26/07/11 4 5 5 5 Well informed and thoughtful. Went out of his way to repeat information until my family and I understood it completely. Ottawa's loss that he is gone. Hopefully he'll be back.  Respond

04/07/10 5 5 5 5 Impeccable bedside manner. Takes the time to explain why specific treatment options are better than others I read about on the internet. Made a very scary situation manageable by breaking it down into small and comprehensible steps. Organized and knowledgeable, but very busy.  Respond
