I have been seeing Dr. Shamma since 2007. I have 2 beautiful children due to his excellent care. He and his staff have always made me feel like I was their priority. Do you have to wait? Yes. He is no different than any other specialist. They have a lot of patients and try to meet the needs. I would gladly wait to see him he is a excellent doctor and really knows what he is doing.

If you want to do IVF then I'm sure he will be great but that seems like his solution for EVERYBODY. I went to see Dr. Shamma because of recurrent miscarriages. He immediately ordered a bunch of blood work and when the results came back he said we needed IVF. We asked why but he gave very little explanation. My husband and I felt like we were rushed through our appointment and treated like an assembly line. After getting a second opinion, we found the blood tests were unnecessary and IVF is not needed. Luckily we saved thousands of dollars by getting a second opinion.

I've been TTC since the last year and half now. I saw an ER, who just placed me on clomid and no tests or follow. When I moved, she referred me to Dr Shamma, who diagnosed that I have PCOS. He's knowledgeable, and up to date with current information. Currently under his care now, and hopefully, hubby and I will get the good news soon, by God's grace.

After many failed attempts and misguidance from a previous doctor my husband and I began to lose hope in ever becoming parents to a child of our own. That's until we met with Dr Shamma. After meeting with Dr Shamma we regained all hope and had 100% confidence in him. And rightly so. He's very caring, knowledgable and honest.

Make sure you have a lot of extra time allotted - appointments with Dr. Shamma were always at least an hour behind schedule. Our IVF attempts with him failed, but another doctor helped us conceive without IVF.

Fantastic doctor, very knowledgeble, attentive & very helpful. Me & my husband was suffering from unexplained infertility for 6 yrs. When we planned to go in for IVF, went to many REs but liked Dr.Shamma's demeanor, knowledge & confidence. We were his patients at the Ypsilanti branch. He has gr8 bedside manners & he knew us by name, which was real nice. We went through the procedure & had 6 embryo's during the transfer, he reccomended single embryo transfer which we followed & the rest was frozen. The REs previously I went to, all wanted to transfer 2-3 embryos b'cuz they cared more about the success rates, but I liked Dr.Shamma's approach, he was not only confident but also he cared & focussed more about healthy viable pregnancy. My embryo did get implanted & I am 3 months pregnant and this was my first IVF. During my first trimester all my ultrasounds were done by Dr.Shamma & he was always ready with answers for our questions & concerns. I would highly reccomend him.

Dr. Shamma and his staff have been absolutely wonderful! I saw Dr. Shamma for infertility that may be caused by my hypothyroidism, PCOS, and a blood disorder. I went to a Reproductive Endocrinologist years ago and felt as if she never addressed any of my issues. That was definitely not the case with Dr. Shamma. He has been proactive and attentive. It is apparent he is knowledgeable and up-to-date with modern medicine. I have a beautiful baby on the way thanks to God, one IVF cycle, and great care from Dr. Shamma and staff. PS, his website offers a lot of info. on IVF procedures: http://www.midwestivf.com/ (My husband and I had the ICSI and TESA procedures done).
