SHC Patient, Dec 2015

First time visit with this particular Dr. Hamad. Very nice & very professional & caring.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

It was an excellent experience.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

She didn't seem concerned about my concern.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Not very thorough & did not express confidence in our visit.

SHC Patient, May 2015

I asked for a routine breast exam & instead of just doing it I was given an explanation of how they no longer do this screening at my age. It would have taken as long to do the exam & I would have felt better having had it done.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Excellent staff - very professional & personable.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

My visit was for pap smear and breast exam. She refused to do neither, despite they were both recommended by specialists. Her explanation of not doing the exams didn't apply to my specific case. I felt that she wanted to get rid of me as fast as possible. She wasted my time due to risking my health.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

She seemed like she was in a hurry, but she was good.
