Ratings for Dr. Brian Shamess
Doctor Shames is now cutting off pain meds to patients of all ages regardless to there current conditions. We have followed his strict program, he is destroying families and causing harm to all his patients. This is unlawful . This will not stop current problem but he is on this mission to destroy lives, I can no longer work thanks to him. He is no angel and we will bring to fight to him and his family.
Dr. Shamess has helped me through some of my worst days after I got into a severe car accident a few years ago. He is helpful, compassionate and cares deeply about his patients. He is extremely knowledgeable and doesn't mind taking extra time with you to answer your medical questions. One of the best docs I have ever had.
I have been a patient of Dr Brian Shamess for many years before retiring to British Columbia four years ago. Dr Shamess has been a wonderful physician. He's kind, compassionate, and really cares about his patients. Dr Shamess is extremely knowledgeable and always up to date with advanced medical techniques. My life was a life of daily pain and there has been no one to this day that has helped me like Dr Shamess. Dr Shamess and his staff have always been extremely professional and respectful of their patients. I highly recommend him. Bonnie Bowen Coquitlam, B.C.
There is no other doctor I trust more than Dr. Shamess. He and his staff are always friendly, professional, and helpful. They have always taken care of me above and beyond. As for the person stating if you're under 60 he doesn't prescribe narcotics; false. I fully believe he prescribes appropriate medications to those who need it. I back Dr. Shamess 100%. There is always a nurse with him while he's performing an exam. I will NEVER believe he assaulted a patient.
The people writing negative comments never seem to consider that maybe the doctor is under a lot of stress, or perhaps the nurse had a bad day, or perhaps the receptionist was brand new.... The negative reviews show a pattern of stars/scores disproportionately low to the corresponding narrative/explanation, never even a single positive attribute mixed in... I mean... come on! We can't read your negative reviews objectively when they're not written (even reasonably) objectively. Please try to be more comprehensive in your descriptions, as, "They Just Really, Really Suck!" doesn't do much to assist the reader.
If you're under 60 and referred here for pain, don't bother.. "you're too young to be on opiods. " The nurse standing in the room is reading body language to figure out deceptive answers to his questions.. Notes passed to him, he reads, demeanor changes from listening, to cutting you off mid sentence.. Offers medical marijuana.. no thanks.. "but its natural" .. I don't care, i need to function during the day moron.. Is this what its come to? Idiot junkies fked up and I have to deal with doctors who are scared to prescribe a pain killer? Should we resort to heroin or alcohol to kill pain? You're a pain doctor, prescribe a pain medication... Malpractice = neglect morons.. Fuck doctors.. 10 years of this bullshit..
Again my husband came home feeling not heard .. had his back to him on the computer. Feeling stuck with this doctor, with one med increase in 3 years, and not coming up with alternative strategies for my husband either... and not doing further tests after 20 years. It's just sad. Burn out is real, and has taken hold of this doctor. He's a nice guy, but who cares when the one you love is in pain.
