CBS 19 interview with Dr. Shams:



  • "Our little mini schnauzer Leo has been so happy with Dr Shams. He’s my first dog and Dr Shams has carefully walked me through everything for over three years now. I’m so thankful for such a caring veterinarian for Leo. He always takes his time and doesn’t rush us out when we have questions. The place is clean and the staff polite."
