    Poor experience; provider did not examine me or palpate area of concern; only ordered diagnostic test. Not thorough at all. Would not go back.

    Dr. Schamess remembered we had a death in the family recently & gave condolences. He's calm, good listener, aware of his schedule/timing.

    Seemed aloof and afraid to engage with me. Told me to take vitamin C and lots of liquids when there was clearly another problem.

    Not my usual doctor but he was nice and treated me well. Sent me for additional lab and CT.

    Dr. Schamess is excellent; so much so that my mother, wife and brother are all now his patients. He clarified use of daily aspirin for me, which I had questions about.
