"I came to see Dr Shamim for relief from my chronic tennis elbow. I had been suffering and reducing my lifestyle for almost a year when I met her. I had heard about new treatments and was thinking it was my last option before surgery.
Dr Shamim recommended a newer procedure called Tenex which she performed on me in April. She said that I might also need treatments to boost healing and really “do the job”. And that’s what happened. I am 4 weeks post therapy and am so happy with my recovery! Dr Shamim and her assistant Angela have been wonderful throughout. They’ve answered my questions and concerns fully and are responsive when I leave a message for them. Besides being talented and wonderful caregivers they are just the nicest professionals to deal with. The staff of the Institute, from the front desk on back are efficient, smart and helpful. I recommend the Institute wholeheartedly!"
