    "Doctor Shama has been a great choice for me as a parent. I had heard that many Italian doctors push antibiotics for everything and I wanted a paediatrician that would be open to other options besides giving a prescription immediately. Doctor Shama has been wonderful in terms of giving quick diagnosis and providing me with options regarding my childs health care". (KM, June 2014)
