Ratings for Dr. Mohamed Salem Abu Shahma
He IS hard to read because he is quiet and he did get snappy with me once when I was upset about something that had nothing to do with him, but no one is perfect. I find that he moves quickly on referrals and tests and doesn't let things slide. I have and would refer him to others and he has saved my life.
Staff can be friendly but not consistent. Wish I never went with this guy and currently looking for another one. Does not provide help, relies on others to diagnosis. Aka other doctors, chiropractors etc. Does not take you serious. He starts out nice so you think ok this will work but once you have an actual issue expect a run around once you are deemed complicated then he brushes you off to any one he can. I am not a difficult person, I have had people the specialist I go to ask what the heck is up with this guy and why is not helping you.
Makes no eye contact except with young girls and kids. He was nice when he thought I was a younger woman but when I came back with my daughter he was very rude. He didn't listen to me when I told him the medication he gave her burned her skin, and told me it would work if I kept putting it on her. Her skin was red and bleeding! He decided I didn't have a chronic medical condition I'm diagnosed with and told me he'd make referrals but never did. If possible, his nurse is even MORE rude than he is. It's like she thinks she'll die if she's forced to crack a smile. But honestly I was glad to read these other reviews because I honestly thought he hated me for something I had done. At least now I know it's just the way he is! Oh also this isn't a real doctors office because they take walk ins too, and sometimes he won't see you because he has walk in patients. You're better off at any other walk in clinic because at least they'll see you!
He didn't help me at all. He is cold, rushing me, and while I was still talking, he almost left! I've seen him three times so far, and it was the same every time - I would be in his office for 30 seconds (or it felt like it), like he is competing for the marathon called "who will get the patient out quicker".
Please listen to the other bad reviews! Dr. Abu Shama is by far the WORST doctor I have ever had. I have been sick for over 6 months and he won't refer me anywhere because theres nothing outstanding in my blood work. He tries as hard as he can to get you in and get you out. The office is always so busy, have to wait at least half and hour for a scheduled appointment. The worst part is he just doesn't care about you, he just wants to give you meds and get you out. Also the office is dirty and you can hear everything through the ductworks.
