This MD pays web-sites all over for praise & ratings. Reality: QUICKLY FLEE. Month after month Ive tried to get anything done, and its usually a hard fail. Referrals aren't done. The staff is better than the MD but are limited, & turnover is HIGH. They cut & run quick. The MD isn't there much of the time so it's some NP, or whoever, that sees you. Then, they quit. The doctor knows enough English to choke out essentially what she is trying to say but NO WAY she is picking up even half of your end of the conversation. She has extremely limited listening skills, and after she botches more than a few of your conversations you realize that you are talking to a wall. Referrals are denied but they NEVER notify you. Even simple stuff is a nightmare, but on the difficult stuff there's no way. This lady ordered an MRI for a segment of the body my problem is virtually never going show, while ignoring the section ALL THE LITERATURE SAYS "look here". Are you catching on yet? Oh, better still she orders this insane imaging from an outfit that has no radiologists with the required training or experience in the procedure! Hmmmm. So what part of "comprehensive MRI with and without contrast did she miss? If you want to dig clams you don't go to the desert. But Shamani's first call is "grab the dune buggy". Now the reason for this is obvious: She doesn't want to find anything ergo no need to actually do any work...but go ahead and keep coming back often. Meanwhile her office phone is dripping with offers to sell you botox and beauty treatments and she will ignore the problems you walked through the door with while insisting you trample through endless nonsense tests and side-bars to people you don't need to see because she's getting kickbacks/referral fees and such. Her POLICY is to write Rx based on "side effects" instead of the right thing for the right job. So for example, if some anti-depressant or antibiotic will give you diarrhea, and you have constipation she will go for those, because she doesn't grab the right tool for the job. Its not her problem if you get really sick from those...because she's has more rubbish for the new symptoms! Here's the kicker....she's Always trying to pass off some psych med for something that its not....because the govt is giving stipends to get EVERYONE on some psych meds. Be careful people because there are insurance companies also paying HUGE MONEY to doctors to force psych meds on kids and also heaping massive doses of vaccines. For example, Blue Cross was paying doctors $400 for every baby that was massively dosed with enough c-r-a-p to give it brain damage and mercury poisoning and guarantee auto immune disorders. Wait and see; Pretty soon doctors will be demanding people get RFID chips and doctors will be claiming they are REQUIRED, when they are not, and bullying patients into being violated. (This is already in the works BTW). Shamani will be right there for that you can bet. Shamani takes her cash her where-ever she can get it, and does so not even understanding the basic text let alone the fine print. She isn't a doctor. She's a billing machine that unfortunately has to deal with patients in order to generate "cash payment". You aren't supped to expect any medical care. So go ahead, walk through the door with cancer while she batters you to death for ANYTHING that has nothing to do with your actual problem(s) while you wait months hoping she will wake up and cooperate with getting you to an actual specialist. She 's happy to pick some monkey off the insurance companies short list of failures and waste 6 months of your life for each one only to act like it's your problem that they ignore you because she didn't bother to order any actual tests related to your issue. You won't find medical care here; just grief. I have a rare condition and have been a professional patient for decades. Ive had MD's in my extended family and have seen every dirty trick imaginable & hear stories of unmaginable fraud and deadly errors covered up. Fact is that most medical records are innacurate and changed and those get more "doctored" than the patient. No one is much trying to practice medicine. Its all one ugly billing game and keeping you messed up is their bread and butter. For example, diabetes is actually easily curable. Do you think any of them will ever tell you that. Doctors that do speak out wind up commiting suicide with 5 bullets in their back. That's what the medical industry is really like. The Shamani's of the world sink to the bottom of the pool and wind up on medi-caid lists to utilize their ponderous & wondrous language skills and keep office workers in temp jobs.

After another Dr. decide it wasn't important to tell me about my high PSA score, then dropped me as a patient. I tried a new doctor, I tried Doc Shamani, within minutes of seeing the results of my blood test that the previous Dr. Ran Doc Shamani refers me to a specialist where I was diagnosed with cancer a early diagnosis and an early cure. Doc Shamani is my hero and I don't doubt she probably saved my life. Big props.

Dr. Shamani is an excellent physician. She is friendly and personable, and cares a great deal for her patients. She is very good at prescribing the right medications and warning against using the wrong medications. She is definitely not the usual "pill pusher" that many doctors seem to be these days. I really think she is great!

I heard about Doctor Shamani from my friend who told me she is a great physican specially in musculoskletal problems. It was my first visit with her. She is so professional, knowledgeable, and kind to her patients. She educatedm me to understand the concept of my disease, medication mechanism of action, and side effects of all my medacions. That was my first visit with the physician who explain things rather than just prescribing medication. I am happy to have her as my primary care physicain.Thanks the Southern Indian Health Clinic to provide such a great physician to our community.

I have never seen this doctor face to face. My doctors for many years retired and this doctor WAS handling my needs. I will never see her, as well never let her anywhere near any of my family members. She is rude, aggressive, does not get to know her patients. She is medication phobic across the board with all medication. As well has been perceived as racist, prejudged. I will be filing any and all formal complaints regarding this person,.
