Our Care Center’s primary focus is to be a partner for all your health needs be they preventive, acute/urgent, or chronic. Our philosophy is to provide you with a complete care package that is specifically designed for you as an individual. We believe that coordination of care is critical in this ever-changing (and rapidly advancing) medical field. Dr. Shamim will work with you to develop and achieve your health and wellness goals.
Dr. Shamim is board certified in Internal Medicine and has completed a fellowship in Geriatrics. His skill set brings the world of primary care and acute care together. After completing his fellowship he worked as a primary care physician in Northern Neck, VA and then in Silver Spring, MD. For the last 10 years, he worked as a Hospitalist, where he served as Director of the Hospitalist Service at Washington Adventist Hospital. Concurrently he was (and still is) the Medical Director of two nursing homes in Montgomery County. He understands the primary care and hospital care very well. He has privileges at Washington Adventist, Shady Grove, and Suburban Hospitals.
We offer same-day visits for urgent needs, annual physicals, geriatric health, promotional and preventive health consultations, chronic disease management, as well as complex medical conditions. We are conveniently located in the Rockville/Bethesda area, easily accessible by metro.
